    I got a second email from Randy stating I should download Firefox - I did but I still can't access the site - it still comes up invalid log in - so I am envious of all you guys who see the questions let alone answer them

    Default RE: Progress --

    WorkRo2 and I are still in that same durn boat -- on the outside waiting to get in. Don't know if we'll see any changes tomorrow (Federal Holiday and all that), but like the operators of the game say -- it's an all-year thing.

    Just hope we don't have to wait all year to get access ....

    Welcome. I wouldn't mention your screennames without your permission.

    An fyi!

    Post away.........

    There are many threads to enjoy here besides armchair treasure hunting.

    Glad to see you here.

    IMHO!

    Here is what I think.

    For me I am doing a lot of research and googling right now. Went and picked up two books from the library and went into Borders and ordered some used books really, really cheap. We have a long time to play this contest. And will need it if you are taking the time to scroll thru the damned questions you don't want to answer yet. NOW THAT NEEDS FIXED!!!!

    For those that are participating - do we want to share info on this thread? Do we want a new thread for discussing questions and using spoilers when needed and keep this thread to discuss the game in general?

    I'd like to know the consensus on how you feel about sharing info.

    Don't know how many Twelevers are actually still playing this game. Since some of you don't post on the DBM forum and can't see the posts there about the game - I wanted to post how the game has recently changed.

    CommentAuthortkanell

    Something to keep in mind: We save every answer you make into the database. At any future time when we improve the game logic we will go back and re check all your answers against the new logic.

    Everyone is given the same chance regardless of when they signed up or answered the questions. If your answer is marked wrong, then it was marked wrong for anyone who put the same answer (even the leader) so don't worry about not being able to compete because of game logic.

    We have been doing this for every change we have made. So if you know your answer is right, just sit tight and we will get it worked out.

    Also, we have found that the skip question option is being used in a way that we did not intend for the game. Users are using the skip feature to go ahead and write down all the available questions and compile their own database of the questions before they answer them. This is not something we wanted. As a result of this we have limited the number of questions you may skip to 30. If you cant find the answer to any of the 30 questions, you need to submit some guesses before you will be allowed to view any other questions.

    We are striving to provide a game experience that is enjoyable and fair for everyone and appreciate your input here.

    ahhh - so if you were smart enough of a player to have patience - get used to the subject matter - the type of player that likes to find the correct answer and not just guess - that's not a way you can play anynmore. In some cases it seems that the DBM peeps have an obvious clear advantage and the "general public" has less of one - if a player did that - their strategy is against the rules????? I'm sure the players that have answered many questions are glad this has happened. But do you think the change is really fair? Just a response to the post! Will always abide by the written rules. Will adjust to the rest of them out as they are posted. j
    also:

    CommentAuthorj15bell

    can't help to post what I think. common sense to play ahead when it was available to do so. made the game unfair to other players. guess I thought that's how you're supposed to get ahead in life - hard work and planning. j

    Thanks for including the forum information -I have still not been able to join their forum - but it would be nice if their rules were clear and upfront - the new rule doesn't seem fair to people who start late - they have a backlog of hundreds of questions that they have to work through 30 at a time - it was easier to copy a hundred questions and work on them away from the computer rather than answer one by one before you could advance - Scrolling through is also a pain in the ***. But I will continue to keep up if I can

    Well it didn't take too much to figure out who the leaders are on this game. Too bad they feel they cannot chat on this thread about it. Just so other twelevers can say KUDOS! Too bad. Thought this was a closer community.

    IMHO!

    At least it is when you offer another twelever to go find something for them..................... just a little sad about it.


    Any way. Kudos to the three of ya.


    Jean

    think you were right MAXJDA

    oops.

    I should say to the four of ya.
