Just noticed the counter on the home page, and noticed how close we are to our one millionth question... is there any thought about giving, say, a year's free platinum membership to the person whose quiz puts us over the one million mark? Or would that cause too much "quiz dumping" just to get the number up, ignoring the quality of the quiz material?

Again, just a notion... Sploofus Powers That Be, I apologize if this is overstepping my boundary... just thought it might be like one of those contests stores have... the One Millionth customer gets a shopping spree - type thing...

This was a hotly debated topic in a post by Baggiob recently. Check it out.

There no way it could be done fairly.

I do like the idea but my first thought was that some people might write the super-long series of fill-in-the-blank quizzes (You know, Food Items Beginning with 'A', Food Items Beginning with 'B' and so on) just to hit that magic number.

After reading the thread mentioned above, it seems a moot point right now anyway.

Hey, were there any surprises in the Georgia election for you? There were none for me. You know, one day, we should try a Georgia Sploofus GTG. Maybe even get Vickie to come down from TN.

Hey Violet..that sounds like a winner...and I wasn't surprised at the election in either Georgia or Tennessee...They showed more Sonny Do ads on the Chattanooga stations than Phil Bredesen ads and he's Tennessee's governor! LOL...where are you at in Georgia? I can't remember exactly..near Atlanta right?

I don't know. Is it a surprise that the GA 12th is so close? Or that the 8th was?

The total number of questions includes more than quiz questions, e.g. TQOTDs at a minimum. I don't know if Sploofus could identify THE question that puts the total over one million, quiz or TQOTD or other?

Anyway, it's an exciting benchmark to watch. My guess, based on watching it for a couple of weeks, is it will happen in late February or early March of next year.
