    Looks like I'm going to get my geek card revoked.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Okay, so I'll ask my newbie question again... Do we not all get the same questions each day?

    I don't understand your question...yes we all get the same questions everyday.
    ALL meaning the players of this game, yes we all take the same trivia each day...why you ask?

    Yes, that's what I meant - do we all get the same questions every day. I see people comment in the little chat box about the questions and sometimes it's about questions I didn't have. For instance, someone said something about a skateboarding question the other day, and I didn't have a skateboarding question. There have been a couple others recently.

    Here's the setting I use:

    "Yes, give all players slightly different questions, if I am using a default category."

    I vote for throwing in a day of Geography: Difficult. Being planners mostly, I think we should be able to handle the more difficult geography questions.

    Interesting, I had to actually send in a correction today... I still wouldn't have won, but they were flat out wrong!

    The Civil War questions sure were tough! Asking who was the best man at a General's wedding, and who was the Postmaster General just don't fit my idea of need-to-know information!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    In the four or so years that I have been playing this game I have never been at the top - even for a day. So I am extremely excited that I could do it for today. Since it seems that Geo can answer questions correctly without reading them, my reign was short, but I am proud. 1 day out of 1040 days playing is a solid percentage...

    LOL. I guess that comes from too much time spent playing trivia, or a love of standardized tests, or something. Congrats on your time on top, Hink!

    Anyone interested in taking over as the trivia administrator? I can't access it from work anymore, and won't be able to modify the settings on a timely basis...

    I will do it unless someone else wants to. I'm working on a raise for the IT guy, so he won't cut me off .
