SHOWDOWNS 2.0

Maybe we should have a 2.0 bbs so people don't get annoyed - but then again - as they hear of us working through bugs that should make them happy they aren't guinea pigs (lol).

Onto it:
I've had two people challenge me since 2.0
The first one I answered immediately (knew like the back of my hand for once) - and was depressed to see that the other person had answered in 7 seconds - since I hit the button immediately I felt like I had it...but oh well.

I had another challenge - did NOT know it, however by process of elimination came up with the answer - which was right which I was able to find after the fact by googling since although I submitted in about the last 7-9 seconds of the timer, it told me that I answered the question incorrectly or took too long.

Since I googled to see if I got it right - I obviously timed out even though submitted before - the other person did not answer right (I've submitted tickets)

My question is (since I did submit tickets) "is anyone else" having showdown issues in 2.0?

Cluck, cluck.........I've been too chicken to try......I still want to know if you do the challenging .... do you now get to choose the topic. Until I know that for sure.......I will continue to be Chicken Little or in my case, Chicken Big.

being able to chose the category for showdowns in 2.0 has been faithfully promised by Justin time and again .. and quite frankly it's the one thing i am looking forward to in the new Sploofus.

i hope i'm not going to be disappointed again.. ...

I do remember the discussion/promise, but I have seen nothing in 2.0 that allows a category selection or a challenge of any player other than the one directly above.

I don't know - I've only accepted challenges, not initiated them.

I have challenged in 2.0 -- and did NOT get to choose a category.

No one promised that choosing a category for Showdowns would be there in 2.0 - I believe it was promised to be added after 2.0 was up and running.

Right now Justin's "to-do" list is coming directly from the Bug Reporting and Enhancement/Suggestions reports...not these BBS posts or Support Tickets. And the "bugs" take precedence over the enhancements!

I think what might have thrown us off was Justin's Chat post on August 2, 2007:

"Also, while I haven't revealed any of the new features of Sploofus 2.0, I will tell you that one of the changes is the challenger being able to select the Showdown category; after all they ARE assuming the risk PLUS it will make Showdowns more fun."

I guess that's not considered a promise.

Showdowns are a gamble whether you are in 2.0,1.0 or any other area in Sploofus. To me, there isn't a proper setup time "after" you agree to play for agreed points. What I'm referring to is not knowing the category and how sudden the question appears. I have lost four showdowns because of speed, not really being ready for the question. This is critical when challenging.

ok Sploofizz, since "no one promised that choosing a category for Showdowns would be there in 2.0" -- any idea what Justin meant by that post on August 2, 2007 well before 2.0 was "up and running"?

Can Justin spare the time to clear this up?

Well, I had to edit this, but what about this quote from Justin on October 11, 2007?:


"Not only with Sploofus 2.0 enhance your love-making experience, it will deliver fulfilling and soul shattering "Os" at the click of a drop-down menu."
