Yes, be careful when you wager, because you level points go back to zero as well as losing the points. I think I lost 6 level points the time I discovered that extra added detraction. I have a favor category I like to wager on. If I get a question in it when I am at about level point 7, 8 or 9, I skip it and leave it to use when I get to the next level and can wager at level point 0.

Funny, Tuzilla... I do it the opposite way. I answer all questions until I reach the next level. Then I wait until my favorite category comes up to answer and wager. Then I take the other questions (unless I lose a 40M wager and become the #3 Loser for October, in which case I go swig some Pepto Bismol and come back the next day to answer them).

We learned early in this household. When my daughter (lanmwolf) was a 2.8, she got a wager wrong and got bumped back down to 2.0. Never again!

That's a great idea, VioletBlue - when at level 0 with a wager token in hand, don't answer TQOTDs at all until your favourite category comes up, so you only ever wager at level 0!

How about someone starts a thread where we can put tips like this? I've seen several recently, including:

- If the community challenge category isn't available when writing quizzes, put it anywhere while you write it, then correct the category when it becomes available (and before launch, of course!)

- When writing a quiz question and needing to leave a question mid-write, put anything, fullstop, whatever, in each answer field so there's *something* there, then you can accept the question without losing it and go back to finish it later.

I vaguely remember several others, too, but I can't remember what they are - anyone got more to add?

I did not know that! Thanks for the info, I'll pick my times more carefully in future.

Berylm that is a fantastic idea for others to add tips and stuff like that. Unfortunately I cannot add any tips at the moment, but I reckon that if an EDITOR reads this perhaps they could start a thread in the sploofus hotwire forum titled TIPS, and then all the sploofusers who have tips like the ones already stated and others can then post their tips to that fo all to see.

So hopefully an EDITOR will read this. lol

I wager like Steve, I don't wager unless it is my favorite category and I don't wager when I'm at about level ??.4 or beyond. I haven't gotten my favorite category in at least 18 days.

I once went up 3 levels before I got my favorite subject for a question. Had a nice stock of wager tokens though.

As per your request I have added a thread into ASK THE AUDIENCE as a place for everyone to post tips and hints. I will ask Justin to make it a '"sticky thread" so it will stay at the top of the forum.

When I was at 8.7 I got a wager wrong and went back to level 8 even...
You got lucky you only lost .1

Sploofizz, thanks for doing that, it is much appreciated.
Now it is just a case of sitting back and seeing how many ingenious ideas sploofus members have as hints and tips.
