    I personally gave up on trivia here due to timezone issues and not knowing US states and tueir abbreviations.
    This was once how we did things, but it has become a Non starter as winners have had no desire to host of late, so that informal tradition died out.

    As the years have passed Trivia has become less popular as the entire social side of the TMF moved off to Facebook, Fetlife, and other platforms where they pursue that social aspect that they used to here. Not much of a solution for that.

    That addresses the winner hosting the next week's game but what about the original proposal? I mean, the whole reason I started this thread was to try to hopefully encourage more people to play. Since there is really only one winner, why continue having the game at all? Surely it's worth it to try something new? Especially since it doesn't require much change to the game as it is now - the winner is already recorded weekly so it wouldn't be hard to keep track of that

    Ah good to know that idea wasn't pure lunacy on my part...

    Yeah I can see how those winning might not have time to make a quiz for the next week.

    No. I find the idea of penalizing winners for winning absurd. I feel it cheapens the accomplishments of winning when someone does on a bye week, because basically people can say, "Yah you won, but only because you had a bye." Not very satisfying.

    Trivia was always designed to be a time when people could interact in the room, joke about the match, cheer on friends, and in general connect over something different than tickling. It was a social time in the room. And about a decade ago the room and forum in general stopped wanting to be social.

    I've long been considering just killing trivia because perhaps its time has passed. Why waste everyones time for something no one wants, and take up an hour of the rooms time so it can return to long stretches of silence uninterrupted by actual words appearing outside their PM boxes.

    I don't really appreciate you calling my sincere suggestion 'absurd' as my intent was to be more inclusive of people besides showmeyourpits and brad. I think it's attitudes like the one you displayed here that have made the room and forum less than friendly.

    The fish rots from the head down.

    Thank you for whatever you do with trivia these days.

    I wasn't calling you or your idea absurd. I was calling the idea as a whole absurd in my eyes decided long ago. Stop taking everything so damned personally.

    This exact scenario is why I didn't answer sooner, because I knew no matter what I said, or how I said it, you'd take it like this.

    If this place sucks so bad, why the heck do you bother being here at all?

    It was just a suggestion, but you didn't have to respond the way you did.

    It's not me taking anything personal - it's me not understanding your attitude which I don't think I deserved.

    I apologize if the suggestion has been made before and I missed it.

    I have definitely taken a huge step back in my participation lately.

    Anyway, message received loud and clear. Thanks for your help.
