I'm sure I missed posts on this when it was announced, I just found out about it...but the reason I joined this site, and paid for a gold membership, was because I'm a MOVIE and TV buff. THOSE are the questions I signed up to answer. THOSE were what I wanted to be quizzed on. Sports? The Bible? Philosophy? NOPE. JUST MOVIES. I HATE this new way of things. I can find random trivia engines all over the web, or pick up a game of Trivial Pursuit. This was where I came to answer movie questions with other movie buffs. This sucks.

Surely you can still do the "Movies & Television" trivia quizzes? You can do mine too, as I am hopeless at 'em!

It is all about choice. Signing on this site as a Gold Member was a choice. You take people's ability to choose away from them and they get upset. Hello? Is anybody hearing me?

I hate it too, I`ve only been here a couple of times this week instead of many times a day like i used to .My QOTD has been Sports soup ,what do brits know about American sports? nothing , That makes it impossible to stage a showdown as well in case i get sports or TV questions (different TV too).I liked the choices we had , it was a fun site , now it is not .so i`m leaving and wish i had`nt paid for gold

THank goodness I'm not the only one. And as far as the sports questions go English Rose, I am not a sports moron, but the one I had yesterday was so obscure I didn't even know where to begin. Like I'm supposed to remember what defense EVERY NFL team uses???? I'm sure people just plug these questions into google or whatever...and that's fine...but that's not a trivia contest. That's a research contest. I NEVER plugged questions before...because I was in my own category. Why don't the creators of this site just make it like it used to be, have separate leaderboards, and then list the top scorers from each leaderboard. THAT levels the playing field. This idea that the new system makes it more fair? HA! SInce when have they cared about fair? I had dial up until this past may. My average answer time during dial up? Around 28 seconds, if it even registered my answer at all. Once I got onto broadband, my time has gone down to 7 seconds!!! So, if they are going to level this game, perhaps they should look at EVERYTHING. WHat a waste of my gold membership money this site has become.

Sploofus can only control certain aspects of your sploofus experience, and it's up to them to make sure that *whatever is under their control* is as fair as possible.

They can't control your internet connection, your physical condition, your language skills, or any of a million other factors out there, but they *can* control how fairly they present the trivia contests to their users. I think they (actually, he, don't forget this is a one-man site) is doing a great job of trying to make sure everybody is on as level a playing field as possible, so to speak.

I diasagree with you Homergator. I think that the majority of the changes that Sploofus makes is to try to make things fair. Sploofus is constantly trying to identify and stay ahead of those who will take advantage of the systems. That seems to drive many of the changes that have been made to the site.

Everyone needs to also remember that Sploofus is not a democracy. Mr. Sploofus makes every attempt to listen to everyone's opinion - that's what the chat forum/polls are for. For one man trying to please 6000 people, I think he is doing a pretty good job. Unfortunately he can't please everyone all the time. That's unrealistic and not the way life usually works. I'm sorry if you feel cheated somehow and don't enjoy the site any longer.
