Quizzes for your recreational needs!
« on: June 29, 2012, 04:57:20 PM »
:announce: New!! Quizzes for your recreational needs!!!

Starting today, a new area has opened in the Recreation Commons: the Quiz area. :tada:
To access the new feature you have to select 'Commons -> Quiz from the main forum menu.
You will find in there multiple quizzes from different knowledge areas.
Complete them and show to rest of the community who's the Quiz Master!
For starters we have a number of 10 quizzes for you to play, but many more will follow.
You can participate in quiz leagues, check out the progress of the others and how you stand compared to them.
You can even submit your own quizzes for the recreational needs of other SMACers.
And who knows, maybe someone will create an Alpha Centauri quiz.
 :danc:

Tutorial:
No sound, but you'll get the message.  ;)
SMF Quiz Overview


Range of difficulty:
The program is rating each quiz based on the percentage of correct answers received from all participants in that quiz (which i think it's quite a good way to rate a quiz because the author can act subjectively when rating his/her own quiz).
If you find a quiz that has never been played, then it will have no rating. Those quizzes will be listed as Difficulty: 'Not applicable'

Awards:
The player with the most wins will receive the 'Quiz Master' badge:

So, what are you waiting for? Get in there! Recreate yourself! :whip:

Anyone else feels like it's time to fix the faction graphics bug?

Just noticed that we have a new Quiz Master: Davyboy. Congratulations! :clap:
As a result a new badge was added to his profile: http://alphacentauri2.info/index.php?action=profile;area=showAwards;u=11152

Please note that I can't make the badge to pass on automatically from one user to another, so you should post here or send me a PM to let me know we have a new Quiz Master. Thanks. :)

I really suck at this.  :)

Anyway, the cult movie quiz seems to suffer from prematurily ended questions. Is there a limit to the number of letters in each question which hasn't been noticed?

Dunno..

Didn't have any probs myself. Could it be that the text is not wrapping in the browser that you are using?

Maybe it was a stress related thing... Anyway, it was just for that quiz. I'll investigate if it happens again.

Btw, I'm the new Quiz Master. However, I think that I can easily be beaten if more people would take more quizzes, so go ahead! (That's a challenge.)

Until quite recently, spider silk had the highest tensile strength of any substance known to man, and the name silksteel pays homage to the arachnid for good reason.
