TQOTD CATEGORY EXEMPTION

You can now choose to be exempted from ONE Trivia Question of the Day category.

If you no longer wish to receive the TQOTD from a particular category, simply login to your Sploofus Command Center and select "TQOTD Category Exemption" from the drop down navigation menu.

Cheers and thanks!

Perhaps now you could consider re-instating the Bible category. Now, people not familiar with it can be exempt from it while fans of the category, like myself can still enjoy it. Just a thought.

Please see the thread below entitled "TQOTD Poll Closed" at http://www.sploofus.com/bbs_detail.sp?post=3954

This issue has already been very thoroughly debated and resolved to the satisfaction of the majority of Sploofus players.

Please continue to enjoy taking and creating Bible trivia quizzes!

Thanks,
Sploofus

It has NOT been resolved! The whole point of that vote was because you were going to take away the ability to be exempt. After the vote, you reinstated exemption for 1 category. I think the voting would have gone differently had the exemption of one category been there from the beginning. You CANNOT call a vote fair and democratic if you change the parameters of what was voted on AFTER the vote is complete, or nearly complete. You can continue to be discriminatory against religion if you chose, it is your site, but don't lay it on the members. It was a blind vote, and that kind of vote is about as unfairly done as possible!

I agree, to some extent, with Carol. The vote was taken under a different context than that which exists now. Some people may indeed vote differently knowing that they have one category exemption to burn. I personally do not think that the final results will be any different for the "Bible" category, since it still does not fit in with the other categories on sploofus, but it's possible that the "Religion and Philosophy" category may be accepted.

The bottom line is, the topic is far from settled (in some folks' minds) and it would be a minor event to run a limited poll to put an end to the issue for good.

OK. THE POLL IS NOW LIVE. This is the FINAL go at this issue. The poll will be closed in 72 hours at which time the majority vote will form the final decision as to whether any changes are made.

NOTE: Your vote on these polls is NOT ANONYMOUS. Sploofus may publish the detailed results of this poll (i.e. who voted for what) after it closes.

Thank you,
Sploofus

Thanks - I think that's a good thing to do. Besides, I just got 6,000 more points. Bonus!

so now-what do we do now if we already picked an exemption and one of the categories we voted on is put into play?And we would rather be exempt from one of those.

Pretty certain that Mr. Sploofus will be able to reset everyone, so that they can choose again. Should be an easy fix at that point........

OOPS!.........(forgot my original comment to the post - DOH!)

Very kind of you Mr. Sploofus, sir, to offer a revote of the issue. A good way to put the item to rest, so to speak.

Here's to the issue being over and done with!

Thank you very much Justin. As much as we complain about things that are truly important to us, you always take it in stride and do your best to make it right. I have been very vocal about Religion not being included in TQOTD, and the manner the first vote was done. I do believe in democracy, with the new poll you have put in we will get a more accurate result. Whatever it is I, for one, will no longer bring the subject up. I will be very pleased if Religion is added, and disappointed if it is not, but, I will be content that the voting was fair and accept the outcome. Thanks again for always trying to do the right thing, even when we get a little indignant and loud.

Thanks for the TQOTD category exemption, Sir Sploofus...now I don't have the anguish of attempting to do any sports questions, especially since most are American, and I am Australian, and know ZIP bout American sports.
