The easier categories are starting to repeat a bit due to the fact that they have the least amount of questions associated with them. The problem is that if we bump up the difficulty can we retain the current fan base, get a larger fan base, or will we shrink the fan base?

Pipped by one point by Nite Owl, I racked up the most wins over July but still can't beat him. More people need to play so the points awarded for each place increase!

Well done Nite Owl (again :bow: )

Amazingly, I came third in terms of wins! 4 is certainly a new record, unfortunately a lack of consistency and missing a day means I didn't finish particularly high up. This month will be worse, as I'm away for a week at least... :lol:

Well done Nite Owl (again :bow: )
I was sweating it out during the last week of last month. I thought you had me on more than one occasion. Given the point differences between all of the top finishers it was a very close month that I barely managed to squeak a win out of.

As far as changing any topics I am fairly happy with the mix at the moment. There was some mention of questions starting to repeat themselves. This does happen but not so often as to be a big problem in my opinion. The only possible way to avoid this is to up the difficulty on some of the categories as the more difficult settings contain the most questions. I am a bit hesitant to do this though as it might drive participation down. Have a look at the CATEGORY LISTING and you will see what I mean. As always I am open to suggestions and discussion on changing some of the topics and the difficulty levels.

Well, there was one I wasn't sure about, thought it was X but changed my mind and went for Y - it was actually X after all. The others I just plain ol' got wrong.

Lies, today just had lots of "all of them" answers, so I didn't have to waste time reading the other answers. :mrgreen: Of course, the one time there'll be a question where the answer ISN'T "all of them" I'll probably be tripped up, but I don't think I've ever seen one of those yet.
