BALANCING TQOTD CATEGORIES

Is there an algorithm in the assignment of TQOTD's that causes a player's categories to be evenly distributed, over time? My weakest category is Music & Musicians (especially of the pop variety), and I was happy not to get one for nearly a month. Now, this week, I've had three! (I know, I should exclude that category.) Is this just coincidence?

I have had music, potpourri, and vocab for weeks - nothing else. I wish there was a little more variety.

I'm praying to the vocabulary gods for their return. I know I've screwed up in the past but I'll be better.

Avdralle - an editor posted recently that unless you exempted a category in 1.0, you cannot - at this time - exempt a category now. Apparently they are working on it.

The categories divied to each player is random.

Hi Avdralle (and Lisa),
I think the editors have come up with a temporary work-around. Please see Sploofizz's post of Sat., July 26th in this thread:
http://www.sploofus.com/bbs_detail.sp?post=99132&cID=6

Based on that post, it looks like the editors have identified the codes for seven of the nine TQOTD categories, and if you submit a support ticket about this, they can manually opt you out of a category if you're not already opted out, or they can change the category you opted out of. I hope that helps!
