Kudos to the editors for the random EA tournament idea and for bringing it back in January.
Could we see this once a month or at least once every couple of months? I assume we are generating enough new ones that we can keep going with this tournament indefinitely?

It is my intention to keep bringing back the EA quizzes. I think many of them pass unnoticed through the system, and they sure deserve more recognition. It will certainly be a series. Glad you like them!

EAs take time to write but they are not nearly as popular as the shorter easier quizzes. I know folks say they play to learn-the snob quality in us- but in truth believe they like quizzes where they might conceivably score well. I have never written any under any of my names but would like to see a Kerblunk Tournament as I like them. I also think the Community Quizzes are pretty much ignored and thus have found fewer writers. They also under the current system are not eligible for an EA although believe most are worthy. Have never written those either but believe a Tournament here might be in order- Linda

Linda - There has already been one tournament centered around EA quizzes, and Barry is referring to a second one which is on the roster for January. Plus, a good percentage of the quizzes that the members have selected for their own tournaments have been EA quizzes, so we will be seeing quite a bit of them.

?? think I missed your point. I didn't say I disliked EA's and have written a few as both Heidi and Linda which I included in my tournament entry. I saw and did a few in the last EA Tournament. Do believe they tend to be more difficult though. I was not suggesting doing away wih EAs or future tournaments based on those. Was just trying to make a case for possible tournaments on Kerblunks and Community quizzes-the latter receiving very little play or recognition for the effort it seems involved in writing them-Linda

The Last few Community Quizzes have been posted as tournaments. In addition, we have started to go back to the early ones and group them as Tournaments as well - your points are well taken.

The current system of entering tournaments does not allow for Ker-Blunks to be included.

Just wonder why EAs received on squares are not included on the leaderboards???

I really liked the past couple of months when the CQs were put together as a tournament. Would love to see that as a monthly thing....
