Re: TD 330 - Chinese New Year [Q4 Revealed!]

I figured there would be some unhappy folks no matter how I chose to score this question, so I decided to score as written (which, again, I admit I didn't phrase very well). I elected not to drop the question entirely because some entrants used their UNITE or FLEE option, which they could have used ...

Re: TD 330 - Chinese New Year [Q4 Revealed!]

N.B. I'll admit that I didn't phrase this question very well; that became clear as the answers came in. The specifics about "type species" in the question comes because two specific types of tuna are categorized as "Highest Mercury," while other types of tuna appear in other categories. There were ...

Re: Wednesday, February 1, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I went with Great Awakening, though I guess the literal meaning of that would be a bunch of people simultaneously coming out of a long slumber. 'British invasion' makes sense in retrospect, but I wasn't going to get there myself.

Re: Friday, January 27, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I didn't realize at first that the clue meant South Africa and not southern Africa, so I was thinking about countries around the Great Rift Valley. Took another look at the clue, considered Cape Town because it's on the coast, and then Bloemfontein ~= "bloom fountain" hit me and that was that. The F...

Re: TD 330 - Chinese New Year [Questions Posted; Open until Jan 30]

For Q.3, certain dynasties can be divided into two parts or stages using geographical modifiers. For scoring purposes, would e.g. Western X and Eastern X count as the same answer (i.e. both treated as X) or two separate ones? Good question. I'm going to go with yes, with one caveat: "X" will be acc...

Re: TD 330 - Chinese New Year

Announcements, Clarifications, Updates In question #11, you say there are 23 answers (which sounds like the 24 times the award was given, minus Jackie Chan.) Later in the clue, you restrict the time frame. How many correct answers are there? In the 2009-2016 time period, 24 people were given the Ho...

Re: Phoenix Auditions January 18-19 2017

The chief coordinator was Corina Nusu, assisted by Laurie (?) and young equipment operator Andrew (or was it Daniel?) I was nervous and not listening carefully at this point. Are Maggie and Glenn still around? I took both the January and October tests, so I'm not sure which one the audition was in ...
