'The Quiz Room'

- Unofficial home of quizzing until this place is back on its feet.
- Chatroom style, no refreshing!
- Open 24/7
- No need to register/sign up.
- Anyone is welcome, indeed encouraged, to use the room to host their own quizzes.

We’re At...

or alternatively

http://betfairforum.weebly.com/chit-chat.html

The channel key is gubbed.

Out of respect for all users, it would be welcome if you could use a nickname not too dissimilar to one you use here.

Lag

What you say comes up on your screen immediately, however there is a short delay before everyone else receives your message, this is called lag.  *Everyone* experiences this, your answer maybe out of kilter compared with everyone elses, but the right order will appear in front of the QMaster/Scorer.

Have fun!

Course not pumphol, he's a banned loser.
and has the temerity to call people (more than the 1 person he is used to) trying to have a quiz, losers.

I have a fair idea who it is - but there's not a snowball's chance in hell of him ever coming out from behind his computer's anonymity, and it isn't a name that's been suggested by anyone else.
He used to post an insulting/grovelling set of ridiculous posts on a hijacked youtube video, which he posted under the name of brian cox, until his user profile and posts were all deleted.
Happy
Then because he can still see this thread is having a little hand shandy at the thought of ruining the quiz.

There were loads of claims, when he was allowed on youtube, that he'd infiltrated the forum's coding (probably untrue), that he's had loads of posts and threads removed (possibly true), lots of grovelling to someone called ron (who immediately deleted his own posts), lots of grovelling to and blowing smoke up the ars of Crippen. And that he removed all his own posts from youtube (definitely untrue).

There were originally some right-wing video/radio links and loads and loads of insults and childish rants at various posters from this forum, which he claims to be "trying to destroy".

This post and the spoiling of a potential quiz will the only Xmas present he's received. There's little doubt he'll do the same again. It does seem a waste of some ability to use computers that this is what he chooses to do, but how do we deal with trolls?
