netweavr: It widged out on me.

Hmmmm...quite possible. Mike changed things so that I could display previous answers (and I updated the last two weeks already with correct answer links), but it hung up when I tried to take it earlier.

If anybody else has this problem, let me know.

Unfreakable - I wasn't sure if I had missed the thread today so I followed the link on the right side and saw that the quiz was posted and available 16 hours ago (around midnight?) Is this true every week, or is it more random than that?
 
2011-07-08 04:01:14 PM
I'm in the top 10! I'm in the top 10!

16 hours ago is when I first created the framework for the quiz. Eight of the questions were written last night, three more this morning, but it got hung up on a bug related to the new page to see past quizzes. It went live about five minutes before netweaver's post at the top of the thread.

I spent a brief shining moment in the top 10. Just posting as I'm an attention whore and the moment was more brief than shining.

9 out of 11 for me.

I consider it a triumph to do poorly - means I've actually been doing my job for a change.

Anyone know where to find this story? Cut off her daughter's eyelashes because they violated the school's dress code

Minor suggestion: put links back to the stories on the answers page.
 
2011-07-08 04:11:32 PM
By the way, later on this evening I'll be closing the quiz and the quiz will display the answers and the links.

The only answer links I can't do yet are the ones where there's more than one answer, as in "which of the following was NOT an actual story on Fark this week" etc.

To see what it'll look like, go back to the quiz page and look at last week's answers.

I'll be doing it, but after the quiz is closed. Some bastiches cheat for some odd reason.
 
2011-07-08 04:16:52 PM
Unfreakable - one more thing - I am blind today or did the link to headline search disappear off the page? I had to google it.
 
2011-07-08 04:17:31 PM
Damn, that's hard this week. I had to guess on 2 of them. I usually know them all.

That sounds like a call for help. My sympathetic farkers, get on that.

No no no! not literally!

Ugh, 684...I always miss the top 10 by one question.

I'm not following your logic. Wouldn't they be able to cheat with or without the links if they've already seen the answers?

Outtaphase: Unfreakable - one more thing - I am blind today or did the link to headline search disappear off the page? I had to google it.


It's not the search box in the upper right hand corner of the page. Works the same but looks different.

Next time I'll wait and go back. Wasn't aware you did that.
 
2011-07-08 04:22:16 PM

Unfreakable: Works the same but looks different.


Ah - blind it is. I must have been thinking of the old google search bar, and was looking for the link instead.

Actually, yeah. Never mind.

Still, the correct answers will be linked up when I close the quiz.

2011-07-08 04:30:45 PM

I try to make them as tricky as I can.
 
2011-07-08 05:11:08 PM
Well, that was probably the worst I've ever done on the quiz. 4 out of 11. BUT, the week was a huge success as I got my first ever green lit link!! Way to go Udontknowme!!

========================================

How about that, 420!

I sucked to start, but got 4 of the last 5 to finish off nice and strong.
 
2011-07-08 05:28:43 PM
It let me score a pathetic 3 no problem.

To make others feel better.

/Meh!
 
2011-07-08 07:24:11 PM
just a thought ... can you legitimately add an exclamation mark to "meh"?
 
2011-07-08 07:39:18 PM
I scored 455. Here's the current leader list if anyone cares.

Top 10 scores for this quiz:
chrisco123 1049
TheReverendLei 984
sick_crunch 968
Iamanevilcarrot 953
Roja Herring 848
Dirty Rob 825
Current Resident 824
higgybaby105 820
John Paul Jones 809
Spiralmonkey 808
 
2011-07-08 07:43:30 PM
6 out of 11, in 154 seconds = 518 points

Getting a little over half the questions right seems to be my average. As always, it seems I start slow and then get on a roll with the last few questions.
