Quizzes have been slow for a while; not entirely sure why. We used to have a core of one to two dozen forumites (and a few dozen others who visited less regularly) who flitted between various quizzes, keeping the subjects turning continually. Perhaps we need to concentrate on no more than half a dozen quizzes at the moment to ensure that these get the interest of our mite family. What is important for success is that those answering RV quizzes need to be ready to pose the next question. Traditionally there have been those who are afraid to take the reins, for various reasons; however, asking and answering questions are a very rewarding set of processes that I'd encourage everyone interested in wildlife to follow.

Personally, I can testify that the quizzes have given me a tremendous amount of knowledge over the years, both from my educated colleagues here and from my own research, which in turn has helped me to understand animals better and so immensely improve my game-viewing appreciation and enjoyment.

Let's see if we can get the steamroller rolling again so that we can share our excitement and knowledge with others to the extent that we used to ...

Thank you Philip 1 and OWN :) Appreciate your posts

So much knowledge is shared here and usually such fun.

I will see if I can organise a battery for that steamroller OWN or perhaps we can all give it a push start :wink:

:thumbs_up: You know, Rosemary, steamrollers are harder to get going at the beginning, but as the momentum picks up it tends to move itself. Make sure you get a big battery. :wink:

The Quizzes are fun I have learnt a lot here, Philip 8)
I just have trouble finding a question (should my answer/guess be correct) to ask, so... I am going to do more quizzes but will have to stick to the QM and QQ types :thumbs_up:

Yes, I know RV's sometimes put people under some pressure to find a suitable Q, but, as in life, a little pressure sometimes brings out the best in us. :D I have never wavered from an RV and find that the momentum on this type of quiz often moves better than any others simply because people need to find a Q. :hmz: My experience, too, is that learning, as a result of the research necessary, improves people's knowledge tremendously. Nevertheless, Matthys, we'll be looking for you on the other types too. :gflower:
