TV tropes Online Pub Quiz

Postby Scarab on Mon Oct 22, 2012 2:07 pm

All those who wish to take part on the TV tropes Pub Quiz, Please add your names and your current time zone here.

Alas, the nature of the internet means you guys will have to bring your own booze.

The quiz will be held on the Chatzy network, exact time to be confirmed here as soon as we have one.
Please follow this elegant link to indicate when and where you will be available for the quiz, so we can get as many people involved at a time convenient for them as possible.

A New Topic will be posted here to indicate the start of the Quiz one hour beforehand.

The categories are a work in progress, but current ideas include: Anime and Manga, TV and Movies, Literature, “Name That Quote”, “What’s The Trope”, the ARG, aaaand Truth or Dare (okay that last one’s a lie, we won’t be having truth or dare.)

The list of people who already want to take part is here, comment here to be added, or if we have forgotten you.

US Central time for me, since you don't seem to have it. That means very little, however, since I never sleep.
Normal people are the easiest to manipulate. Too smart and they have an annoying tendency to catch wind of your plans, too dumb and, in the words of a certain pirate, "You can never tell when they are about to do something incredibly...stupid."

You're on now, Jack, you too Slender :).

I think it would be pretty much impossible to avoid cheating in spin the bottle.
Still if only we could get Mister A to play Truth or Dare

Nope, I don't have a twitter to do it and I absolutely do NOT ENCOURAGE ANYBODY ELSE WHO DOES HAVE A TWITTER TO DO SO
Except I really do.

Hell, why not?, I'm sure they could all use some time off lets see about the forum members who have also been working their butts off first, though.

GMT+3. I have no idea if I'm going to participate, because of that.

Check the link to the doodle, it should adjust automatically to your timezone and see if you can fit any in.

We're going to try and get as many people as possible, but some might not be able to for a variety of reasons :(

I'm GMT-3. But as you can see in the doodle, unless something unexpected happens, I'll be able to make it any time.

I've added myself, GMT+1.

Couple questions:
1. Who's gonna think of the quiz questions?
2. I'm not on here that much, so a notification one hour beforehand might not reach me in time... Help?
3. 1:00 on a thursday means thursday early in the morning, right?
4. EDIT: answered

I also have two category suggestions: Books and the ARG.

Yeah.

Also, I can only be here on Thursday. Wednesday I'm at church, and on both Friday and Saturday the library closes at 5.

The doodle quiz should auto-detect where you are and use that timezone. If it looks wrong, check the time zone at the top, right above the blue boxes with the dates. You can correct it there if necessary.
