Don't want to hurt any of your DiS pals eh?
Nice of you.
if you fancy it
FRIDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER
a single will lose you points equivalent to the number of points gained by the top answer. So if the top answer is 40 points and you get a single, you'll lose 40 points.
This keeps an element of peril but it saves the carnage caused by "splitter" questions - I think last time one of the questions was "an ATP headliner" and there were about 25 different answers. A single will still lose you points but won't have the same cataclysmic impact.
if there's a massive groundswell of opinion to abolish the FIENDISH altogether then I'm happy to do so.
Biggest punishment comes on the most obvious answers you miss.
When will the questions be available? I guess the 19th is answers day?
We're going to use a OneDrive survey thing to get the questions this time round, rather than using PMs. (Though we'll need to use PMs initially to get passwords for you all and to give you the link).
the idea is that an obvious answer (with a big high score) gets a significant punishment, whereas a "splitter" answer isn't punished as severely.
