I suggested this in an earlier post, but I thought it would be an excellent idea to change the Trivia Showdowns. My idea is that you could challenge someone to a showdown and time didn't really matter, but you would only win when you get the question right and the other person misses it. If you both tie, you get a new question until someone wins. That would even the chances for those with a slower connection. What does everyone think about this?

That would be good. Sometimes my page loads fairly quickly, then other times by the time I can see the entire page, the count-down is halfway gone!

I was wondering if the back and forth until someone misses format might be difficult to achieve technically (I have no idea, really). I like that better, but if it's not possible, what if a random quiz from the archives with a difficulty rating of 3 or more and a good average content rating were given to each contestant and speed would only be a factor in case of a tie, but given the longer format load times wouldn't matter quite as much - accuracy first, then speed. And I think it can be a quiz taken by either participant before - not one authored by a participant. The advantage that I can see to that would be some added motivation to seek out old quizzes and also take some of the harder quizzes too.

Maybe the quiz questions could increase in difficulty level each time both persons get the question right until finally there is a question that one or both persons cannot answer.

Actually, though, I am quite happy with the challenges as they are now.
