Hi everyone, after the success of the pilot episode of PPQ I’ve discussed some of the rules with another poster on the board, and I think we should discuss this before the next show of PPQ, so as JizzMaster Cop the Quizmaster here us guide to next weeks show.

Tuesday Nights 9.10pm, no excuses for skiving, using college as an excuse!

10 questions per episode, 11 if tie breaker needed

The Points System

First contestant to post correct answer (Fast Finger) = 2

Next contestant to post correct answer = 1

No prizes for coming 3rd folks!

QI - I’m also going to introduce the QI style question, where you can lose points for giving me the obvious wrong answer… I tried it with the Sol Campbell answer last week hoping somebody will say Vinnie Jones, but it didn’t work.

Research

I'm going to have it as an “unwritten rule” that you CAN do research, because people will research, and it won’t be fair on those not cheating.

I can’t prove if somebody researches the answers or not, and I fear it could start arguments and accusations of people cheating, and we don’t want that. It also keeps everybody involved, for example, if I asked a question about football, it gives somebody who isn’t keen on footy the chance to grab a point, rather than just sitting there having to pass.

After all it’s an internet based quiz, why not use it, we have whole world at our fingertips.

I write the questions myself, so contestants can’t simply copy and paste my question into Google, and the idea is that the quiz is really easy, and its fastest finger first, that’s why I give a point for somebody in second place. This way you don’t have a Smart Alec way ahead in the lead. In the first show, on question 18, it was neck and neck with all three of the contestants.

It was quite exiting keeping the scores.

'Heavens! Our goofy wit!

There will be some better rounds in there too, such as anagrams (such as TV show above), more questions on soaps, and each show will have a Finchy related question... so it will be interesting to see which fan can answer the most questions on him.

Do your research on Bar Stewards, the cast, crew and maybe even other posters; there might be a question about you! So, if you can’t find your birth certificate or dental records, I might have them!

Editing and Deleting = Cheating!

The other rule I am introducing is no editing or deleting posts, if a contestant has spelled something wrong, or given the wrong answer, then that’s tough luck. The editing of posts confused me as the quizmaster; sometimes it was difficult to keep track of who said what first etc. If, I mean WHEN caught, you will lose points, no excuses!

Tuesday Night is Burnley FC Night

Sometimes, PPQ will need a guest presenter when JizzMaster Cop is watching The Clarets getting stuffed by somebody crap like QPR, I will announce it on this thread when I am not available. Somebody will take the hotseat… beware, it might be slimy!

Can we have Birty, Mike, Ash, Chris, Tim, Strawbs, Rach, Rachael, Camp David, Sparky, and Jackie etc involved this week please, you missed a right good do!

Well it can be awkward to be online around that time but if I'm around I'll certainly have a go. :)

Er..... "Have I got News for You?" :)

I think your suggestions for tomorrow's quiz are good. We won't always be on the same wave-length so allowing a little bit of "research" will avoid you sitting there wondering whether anyone is ever going to answer your question. Besides, anyone who knows the answer is going to be able to post quicker than those who have to look it up.

The only suggestion I would make is that maybe you should wait for a couple of people (at least) to have a stab at the answer before posting a response. That might avoid some of the manic "F5 pressing" to try to refresh the page to see if anyone else has answered. It also might flush out the "copiers" who try to get the "one pointers" by posting the same answer as the post above them without knowing whether it's right!

I think you did very well coping with all our bickering last week. Laura, Joanna and I have known each other for a long time now so we sometimes get a little carried away! :eek:

I'll try to be around tomorrow as I need to get my revenge! :)

Yeah, the new rules for the quiz sound really good :)

Although you do realise that Joanna is a complete grammar nut so it's gonna be very difficult for her to refrain from editing her posts if she's made a mistake! ;) :p

I'm not sure whether I am going to be able to make tomorrow evening's quiz though as I think I might be doing something with my mum :( I may try and work around the quiz though so I don't miss out!

LAURA DAVIDSON.... :mad: :eek: Yeah, alright.... :eek: ;) :):p Where's a 'shush' smiley when you need one?! ;)

Well, anyway, I'll just have to make sure I don't make any mistakes in the first place, then! :):p

Hope you can make it for the quiz tomorrow. :)
