I love these questions! But I have a few of my own.

Question #6: The are instances where the same cat goes by many different names. Will they be counted separately, or lumped together?
Question #7: Must the Italian be living?
Question #9: Are you looking only for novels, or do other works of literature count?

Is there a bonus if we don't use either a DROP or SHEEP?
Teems with quiet fun.

Question #6: The are instances where the same cat goes by many different names. Will they be counted separately, or lumped together? A cat by any other name is still a cat. So these would be grouped. Same goes for Q #2.
Question #7: Must the Italian be living? Ovviamente no!
Question #9: Are you looking only for novels, or do other works of literature count? Poetry, prose, drama all acceptable.

Is there a bonus if we don't use either a DROP or SHEEP? Negative. It's in your best interest to DROP. And SHEEP only if you have to.

For question #7, by "fine arts" do you mean visual arts only? Or someone who works/has worked in any of the fine arts?

Thanks for the clarifying question. Let's say visual artist, as opposed to say, writer, composer, musician.

TD 336 - FELINES

Post by morbeedo » Mon Mar 06, 2017 10:48 pm

I've thought some more about immaf's question about FELINES and would like to clarify what I meant when I said that some answers would be grouped. There are roughly 30 unique cat species in the sub-family Felinae. As immaf suggested, some of these species may be known by more than one common name. So here is how this question will be scored:

1. I will count synonymous names for the same species as the same answer. For example, "aubergine" and "eggplant" are 2 different names for the same thing, so these would be grouped (i.e., 3 people respond aubergine, 2 respond eggplant, all get 5 points.)
2. However, in the case of a genus that contains more than one species all sharing the same name, I will score the genus and species as distinct responses. For example, the genus "balloon" and species commonly known as "party balloon", "weather balloon" and "hot air balloon" would all be counted as unique answers.

Question 2 is much more straightforward. If a single image elicits multiple correct answers, then these will scored as the same answer.

Hope this helps

I confess that I mostly dropped this question because I was unsure if I was thinking about the responses correctly. There was a lot of "Is there another term for polka dots?"-type inner chatter taking place, so I just decided to finesse the whole dilemma by dropping. We'll see if that was a good choice in retrospect...

Ahh, ok. I tried to mix it up in terms of difficulty, but I guess the obvious ones were too obvious!
