I must say, I was a little upset when Sploofus decided to not let you pick your categores that you would like for your daily question.
I think as a compromise, Sploofus should reduce the amount of questions per level from 10 questions to 5 questions.
At this rate, this person whose writing this post may not advance another level until 2006
However, it'll still be interesting to see which category you'll get each day.

That is a good point. I've never taken a Sports quiz, so I have no idea how hard they are.

Oh well, Sploofus is meant to be challenging.

But're WRITING sports quizzes. And every other subject, too, from what I can see.

I'm listening and thinking about this debate, and watching the voting in the member poll on categories. I think one possible solution is:

Come up with 10-12 categories for the QOD's. These could include everything listed, including Bible and even the new idea for Religion and Philosophy. No editions. everyone is subscribed to all of them. THEN...give everyone 3 or 4 opt out selections, if they want them.

This way we could keep every category, but people could opt out of the Bible or Sports, whatever. They would still overlap with all other players, so this would also take care of the exploit as I understand it.

Also, the category for the QOD would always be present, which is important. I would hesitiate to ever use another Wager Token if I didn't know the category ahead of time. A guy could be in negative territory in no time if he never knew the category before wagering.

I am just not understanding this exploit thing. My husband and I both only had the Bible edition. We never had the same question and there seemed to be no rhyme or reason to the order. I could see no pattern and neither could he. I always had a question of the day. He had problems and we both opted out of the same stuff. Now if I want to have a chance at getting my question right, I ask my family to gather round the ole computer and help old dumb mom out.

I think that some of you who were choosing to have ONLY Bible questions before really have no idea how easy some of the other questions can be...sure some are hard and some are very specific, but a lot are really more general knowledge that you probably know! ANd guessing never hurts

I think if you give it a shot for a couple of weeks you'll find you know more than you think you do!

so far what I have found out is that my 15 year old daughter is way smarter than me on stuff like geography because she studies it in school, my husband on sports and tv and movies because that is what he spends his time doing. I read and study my bible and read Christian books, listen to Christian music - that is just what I do. I don't even watch the news or read the paper but once in a blue moon. Now I feel like a cheater.
