22nd on Double Jeopardy! (sarisson, is that you right above me?) I did a lot better on the original quiz (tied for 3rd), but I usually have to fight to not come in last on these things, so I'll take it. Darn you, VH1!

Yes it is. I was surprised I finished so high because I got three wrong.
I think it's harder to finish in a high percentile on AF quizzes because most alpacas are A- or B-Rundlers who can't get enough of 1DSes. It's better to create a quiz on there (although I haven't done that yet) than wait a year for a 1DS opening.

I just made my first forays into trivia writing and made a couple of quizzes on the site - I'm enjoying seeing some of the silly responses - I have no way to show the best wrong answers at the end, do i?

Bronze for me. Curse you, WilliamsK! (By that I mean congratulations, of course.) I managed to peg the difficulty of the questions correctly, but I wasn't quite confident enough on the Pam Mueller question to money it and get a perfect score.
Sprinkles are for winners.

Heh heh heh. Sorry about the result, but you performed better than I did; I would have never pegged emancipTation as harder than VH1. In fact, I was sure it would be the most valuable clue in the set.

It did feel nice to win after missing the original quiz, where I was the answer with the lowest get rate.

I guess this is also a good time to plug my Mystery #4. Closes Sunday evening.

TESTIMONIAL: Vaughn Winchell called it 'far from the worst set of questions I have ever encountered'!

I found it to be more fun than a game of Kiss, Marry, Kill.

I can figure out the theme and still can't get more than half of the answers. :(

However, I am pleasantly surprised with myself on the 2 musical ones I did, and I knew I'd kill on the Vacation one (I missed the "who originally sang" one, dang it)

Check out This Week's Billboard Top 12, due a week from today! I've aimed to make it accessible to people who know their current music. Enjoy!

I would have phrased the wrestling question a little differently .. I think anyone who understands what you're saying gets a huge hint, whereas the others just get more confused. -shrug- I don't know enough about current music to get through the quiz overall, sadly.

I went a little overboard and created 5 quizzes that are currently active.

Am I missing a formatting thing? I can't get the description of my quiz to accept carriage returns.

That did it, thanks Keith! OK, comic book nerds ... you know that the "Super Hero Alter Egos" categories on Jeopardy! are always way too easy for us. Try my "Harder Super Hero Alter Egos"; let's see if we get enough to get to "Even Harder" levels next! :D
