TEAMS

Just out of interest, can anyone tell me what happened that led to Sploofus deeming it necessary to discontinue the old team system?

I know I enjoyed that feature but understand that it caused friction between others but I never really found out what was going on! Can anyone shed any light?

two things that i recall...

a lot of childish bickering via IM's and such and,

cheating...trading info or giving out answers to teammates, not taking competitor's quizzes or low-rating them while taking all of your teammate's quizzes and giving them 9's.

Good Lord! 'Pon My Soul. Utter Blaggards. I say! Not decent at all. Just shows how jolly well behaved was the Brits' team, what!
Maybe we had better run Sploofus.
Fair play, eh? Straight bat and all that .....

Cricket references always impress me. I even read English papers to hear to the terms. 'Course, I don't have the foggiest notion about what's going on except I know that people run around a lot. But--a straight bat does seem righteous. Now if I could just figure out what an lbw was....

The teams were removed due to so many who were actually having personal battles against one another. In other words, there were "some" who forgot this is all just a game and began to take it way too seriously. Sad we all had to suffer the loss over a few. I miss the teams and think Sploofus was a LOT more fun when we had them.
