Is there a reason for the polls to be frozen? I'm a bit behind (just watched the week of 6/18) and now I can't vote. :(
I have the poll open until November 5 and it looks like I could change my votes today if needed. Other than not being signed in I don't know why you are not allowed to vote.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

I can see the questions, but no images are showing. Yes, spotty service today with the site. It took a few reloads with a little patience to get through the questions to see the images. Yesterday I brainstormed as many European capitals and countries I could recall without ever hitting on Belgium. ...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Mark, What percentage of those old games would you say had Audio Daily Doubles? My initial instinct on all of the '87-'89 range games I have input had me thinking it has to be over 50% as it seemed like there was always one. cheezguyty could help although I suspect I am guilty (and perhaps other ar...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

It's only points, so I don't want to make too big a deal about it, but it looks like something might have gone wrong with the scoring on Round 3 Day 6. I've been credited with 69 points, but I think that should be 73 points. The only question I missed was the 4 pointer in "A Capital Idea". That sho...

Re: This just in! New season of Millionaire (2018) seeks contestants

Anyone in the know as to when new episodes start airing? Sounds like there will be lots of familiar faces to root for this season! 8-) September 10 is my expectation and if the pattern holds it's new episodes for three weeks in the double run markets to make 30 episodes aired over 15 weekdays. Last...

Hoping I didn't renew my registration too late....got it in this morning, but it says my status is "provisional (rookie)." Anybody else ever have their stuff expire the day before registration is due? Were you able to get in that season, or no? Worried for nothing. Back in C Prairie 2 with at least...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

For MOVIES $300 I did not add any kind of note. Is that quote correct? Does Scheider say it several times? The same way each time or different ways? I took a quick look on YT and found the line said differently. If a fan of the movie has a strong need for some kind of ERRATUM then let me know and I...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Singer is major negbait for the 6-pointer in "Tributes". He didn't die until 1875. Howe died in 1867. But since the correct answer hinges on people knowing those dates, this is much too hard for a 6-point question. I think you ought to consider a replacement question. (Although, since I got it righ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 3 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

In a small sample of responses it looks like the American Artists went through the SHC valuator with the assigned points not quite matching the player results of difficulty order.
