Pub Quiz II Schedule and Rules

The poll of the previous thread has been closed, and I, on behalf of myself and my fellow quizmasters Scarab, Sicon, and Adell, am pleased to announce to you that we have ourselves a fixed date and time!

The Pub Quiz II will take place on Tuesday February 19th, at 7:30 pm EST. (If you're too lazy to do the time conversion for yourself, ask me and I'll tell you what that is for you. :P )

Here is a good place to sign up if you know right away that you can and want to be there, but there's still no problem with people popping up on the 19th with no warning. :)

The quiz will take place on a neatchat; we will release the link closer to the event.

There will be six categories of the quiz; one of those categories will, of course, be The Wall Will Fall. Other categories may be announced at a later time.

Please watch this space for updates to the rules.

Rules:
As before, no googling/ other research allowed for getting your answers. This will be enforced by the honour system. Exceptions to this rule will be announced on a case-by-case basis.
As before, you will each be assigned a quizmaster to whom you will PM your answers. No points will be awarded for an answer given in the main chat. (Also, that would be a jerk move.)

Aw, now I feel bad about how we'll be keeping Scarab up... and I'm surprised to see Qara endorsing a plan that will involve Scarab being awake in the middle of the night.

The irony is palpable, isn't it? But Qara just picked the most convenient time she could for everyone, and as SOS and I are the only really active players in this time zone, it was either inconvenience us, or inconvenience almost everybody else, sooo I'm happy to take one for the team :P

The other option was to put it at 2am her time...

It seems to be 1:30 am for me. I hope I can stay sharp for all of the questions >.<

That'll be interesting for me - I traditionally chat with some other friends, so I guess I'll have to do these at once!

(Not complaining, though, since I didn't vote.)

I don't think I'll be able to make it for the quiz that day, I'll be busy the whole day. But since it's 10 PM, well... Maybe.

Just a reminder, the Pub Quiz will be in a little under a week, on Tuesday February 19th at 7:30 pm EST. Don't forget!

(And don't worry, you're still welcome if you can only come late and/or leave early. The more the merrier!)

More announcements/ info will be forthcoming within the next couple of days, and we'll probably release the link to the chatroom within an hour of the event.

It's possible I'll be late, because, uh, George Takei is going to be on campus and his thing ends 1/2 an hour before the quiz starts, but I'll probably be able to make it on time.

The quiz is tomorrow! Everyone get ready.

I'm posting this because I am the kind of person who forgets things like this so I'm reminding myself and others like me.

Also... I completely forgot to take into account that Daylight Savings would be off by the date of the Quiz, so... >_<
I leave class at 9PM, thanks to leaving the Daylight Savings last Sunday, the Quiz starts at 9:30PM. I most likely will be entering my street at that time, it'll likely be at least 9:40 by the time I'm inside and online, if I'm lucky. Rationally, I'd say I'll only be able to get here at 10. :(

Really, don't worry about showing up late (this goes for everyone). For one thing, we'll take a while to get moving, after some waiting for people to show up, going over rules, etc. For another, there will be plenty of questions left for you to answer. ^_^
(Also don't worry to people who will need to leave early. Same again goes-- you'll still stand a reasonable chance.)
