I think this one should get a prize. The first one to answer the questions correctly gets a StressBank Tshirt.

birthday should get a shirt for submitting the test. But we don't have a winner yet!!!

We will have to give it to the one with the most correct answers if we don't get someone who can guess them all correctly. You still have a chance.

All I can say is we have a tie so far and you could do better. Someone can win this if you try.

If we don't get another entry today, we will have to have a tie breaker. Was this too tough for you? :-|

Fine job Monkeygirl

Post by naynay » Thu Jan 29, 2004 3:45 am

Congradulations are in order for Monkeygirl. Now, I am not one to wimper and cry...however, I think it should be noted that Monkeygirl posted her answers on Jan. 28th., the rest of the contestants posted on Jan 24, and one on the 25th.

Hmmm..I am sure Monkeygirl posted when she read the test, however let's say she didn't. Let's say she read the test on the 24th, then proceeded to spend the next four days seeking out the correct answers. As I said, I am sure that is not what happened, however it could be a very sensible thing to do. Therefore, I suggest that a few guidelines be put in place.
A couple of things off the top..maybe announce when the next quiz will be posted. You could either give a deadline date to post your answers (such as the following day by such and such time) Or you could give even more time, or you could even state that the test has to be taken the same day as the post, therefore eliminating much time to do any research at all.

Well, I don't pretend to have the answers as I have just thought about the whole deal. Well, something to ponder over, ask for suggestions perhaps.

Again, I am not one to wimper or cry.

Well naynay, this was kind of a test run so the rules were in the making. If we would have had more entries in the beginning or if the answers were close to being correct, we would have cut it shorter.

We can have a set time limit in the future but there will be many more contests to work things out.
