An extreme makeover needed? :) :)

Any objections or thoughts to these being merged into one? Just some examples. ....
Renamed - True, False, Fact or Myth
You just need to decide if you want it to be RV or OQ?
Fact or myth (RV)
True or False
True or False or Kinda??

Merge the following and rename it Webcam Quiz in which any question relating to the the webcams can be asked?
which animal
The Brand New Webcam Quiz - Non-Cammers very welcome! (QM)
Cam Quiz (OQ)

Could all these go under one topic as Where In Kruger -General. Is it absolutely necessary to have a separate quiz for trees, pools, bridges, camps? Many start a quiz and don't continue with it as it is being covered in another. Look how popular Dinky Bird's topic in Chit Chat is. Maybe we should move that over into this one? :wink: :lol: Or, we can have a Where In Kruger (with pictures) and A Where In Kruger ( questions without pictures)?
Where in Kruger?(OQ)
Kruger camps and places quiz (RV)
Another Where?
Where is this tree?
Where In Kruger (With Animals! (OQ)
At which Waterhole? (OQ)
Which Pool
etc, etc.

I can do the same and create one Where in SANParks - General??

Hide and Seek and Spot the Animal = the same? :?

I will also archive all the "dead" quizzes where for example the QM is no longer active on the forums.

Do you think this will make the Quiz Forum more user friendly, neater and less daunting???
I am waiting... :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn: :k

My thoughts.........yes rather make one topic. Then I will not feel there are hundreds of quizzies I never get to answer or participate in.

RV or OQ........thats a huge question.......RV some feel they are not up to posting a question, so they try not to give the correct answer........OQ........you stand the chance to have a quiz die, because no one is obliged to post a question.

:hmz: :hmz: :hmz: :hmz:

Just my thoughts.......... :whistle:

Good suggestions Rosemary and feedback, Philip and LQ :gflower:

I prefer OQ :wink: , but can see why RV may be better in some instances.

Thanks Matthys I also prefer the OQ but the RV does do the trick in some quizzes to keep it rolling. We will find a happy medium, I'm sure :)

I think the two are fairly different Philip1.

BushBrat's intention for Who Said That??(OQ)
Bush Brat wrote:
In this game the quizzer quotes an extract from somebody's TR and then you will have to try and guess who's TR it is. You have to give the name of the TR and the author of it. There should be some element that is recgonisable.......... style of writing, humour or even sightings.

Zippy Zebra's intention for Who's line is it any way? (RV) was:
Zippy Zebra wrote:
Let names be the game?

Here's the first one

From the Turkish name "garah-gulak" - meaning black ear- this refers to my black ear-tufts

Name the species - commen name is fine...

Which I think has strayed way off what it was intended to be. :) :whistle:
