Trivia Rules : thoughts

3 posts in this topic

Hello, everyone!

 

 

This is a thread about rules, deadlines for giving up and allowing someone else to take a thread by just saying what the answer is.

 

It may end up in the off topic section but I hope not as I think the main guessers in this forum never venture out of it when they are answering trivia questions.

 

This thread is inspired by my attempts to get people to guess COWBOY was the film that starred Glenn Ford and Jack Lemmon as the movie that was filmed in chronological order because Jack Lemmon did not know how to ride a horse just like his character did not.

 

I started out giving a couple of clues, realized that no one was getting it and gave out clues such as this;

 

HINT:  I STARTED OUT A THREAD ON THE STAR WHO IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE ACTORS IN THE FAVOURITES SECTION CALLED;

 

______________ __________________  FANS HERE.

 

 

I then posted clues in this thread.

 

The Ultimate Movie Trivia question was thus answered  without letting people get bored and ignore it.

 

What time frame rules would you like to see ?

 

I also suggest that people occasionally try retyping all of the clues in one post when a trivia thread as I discovered when I did this  question about Cowboy.

 

I did not get angry when Princess of Tap said that she thought  she only had to come up with Jack Lemmon as she read only the most recent clue and knew that he was married to Felicia Farr.

Okay, I have been informed that there is a week long rule not for just some questions but all of them.  That is what I wanted  to know.

 

And I have also been told that in general people only leave one clue per day instead of the multiple clues that I did in regards to my Glenn Ford/Jack Lemmon COWBOY question.

 

 

Okay. 

 

Thanks for letting me know.

 

 

Cheers

Many thanks to Azure for letting me know within the context of the threads themselves what various rules were even though I set up this thread so that people could tell me what the rules were before I joined in a brand new to me thread in this forum.
