I was just wondering what everyone thought about the new factions? It's almost like the teams we had before in a least it seems that way to me....

Sun, 14th Aug '05 2:46 AM

Not quite like teams Factions have been engineered to contribute to the Sploofus culture, and not fragment it. How? There are no faction "owners". The scoring mechanisms for factions are generic enough that they will not cause conflicts between faction members taking each others quizzes, Showdowns, etc.

Our hope is that Sploofus factions will generate more activity on the site, and not segregate players into malicious groups.

We'll see

It should be great fun! Hail to the high levelers of the faction!

Much more to come...

Must admit the Factions sem a bit odd - you join then forget about it?

Hi Vickie. I don't see my self joining one. I do think there should be a faction called 'Cloggers' for those who continue to flood a catagory with (way) too many versions of the same quiz. I just hope most users know how to access the older quizzes that are written by purist like yourself, that fly off the board too fast. Well you know what they say about opinions.

Hi Vickie,

Still taking those great quizes. I agree with Felix. The really challenging Trivia Is gone way to fast; Your left with alot of fluff. Yes it sounds like tourney ground to me, if not then whats the purpose??? BTW I signed up for one and will be watching as well.

I requested a pop culture faction. I will hold off joining for now.

I'm actually confused about what it is all about. In other words, when you join a faction, you answer those types of questions and get points at end of month?? Excuse my ignorance lol

I'm still not really clear on what exact purposes the Factions are supposed to serve, and after the hullabaloo that the Teams caused, I'm a little too nervous to get involved with it just yet. Heck, I'm uncomfortable doing the message board thing here again!

If I was to join one of the factions, I guess it'd be the Trivium because it sounds kinda like a potpourri thing...but ditto the suggestion above about a pop culture related one. But until it becomes a little more clear what these Factions are supposed to do, I'm not going to get involved.

thanks Lolly for the definition of faction...
I think I'll hold off too mainly because the fiasco with the teams are still alittle too fresh in my memory.....thanks all for answering. I wonder which faction "music" would fall under out of curiosity? hmmmmmmmm

I'm not sure of the factions, either. I guess were are supposed to recruit new members to help our faction.

I would like to be part of the "Modern Descendents Of Pre-Columbian Inhabitants Of The Post-Pangean Continent Between Northern Atlantic And Pacific Oceans" faction.

Hi everyone,
Nice to see some familiar names on this.
I was confused about this before, came here for some clarity but surely didn't receive it ) ! Oh well...guess we'll all have to watch and see. I did enjoy the comment about trying to find the old "real" quizzes though!

Hi again... Whilst I am not a huge quiz-taker so therefore probably not able to comment with too much authority, might I suggest that if you find someone who does contribute challenging and interesting quizzes, you continue to check out what they have to offer. Let's not forget the option to look at that given author's other quizzes...

Hi Vickie,

In my opinion, which is based on what Sploofus says the Factions are all about. They would spend their time better just offering various icons that we could choose from to have shown in our profile. Such as icons representing math, animals, music, different cultures, etc. The first thing of thought of when I heard of Factions was "club" just like the rest of you.
I also wish that the "fluff" quizzes were not so numerous. I have had many compliments on my quizzes, which are all very old now due to cancer surgery in march. I think my average is about four or five people finding one of my quizzes a month. Apparently the old ones are difficult to find for some people.
** Slight subject change* I also think that the site should be redone in the regard. When you are viewing quizzes, choose one on a page, complete it and return to the list, I think you should be taken back to where you were. Being put back at the beginning of the long list is very frustating. Alternatively there could be links added for every single page so you dont have to click next over and over and over... Oh and this is not "chat" it is a message forum, using "chat" is misleading. Well that is one womans opinion. Terry

As for being brought back to the start of the page after taking a quiz...I copy the url of the page I found the quiz on, then when it returns ,e to the first page, I paste it back in and voila.

I agree that the word chat is misleading.. I was quite excited at the thought of a chat room.
What I found was a message board..

I personally love the addition of the chat/message forum.
I was feeling so all alone out there. lol.
Live chat rooms can be so chaotic. everybody wanting to be heard but having nothing much to say. This way when we have a question or something to add to the thread it doesnt get lost inthe midst of,wb,yadda yadda yadda. They can also get so clique` (spell check) anyway I'm curious to see how it will be archived as the forum grows. will there be "chat forum factions" or maybe just reset every month.
or... will it just be taken away when they see too many gripes and complaints. just curious.
Happy sploofusing!

Vickie dear, nothing will ever replace the fun we had with the teams. Factions don't even come close. I have joined a faction but the purpose seems pointless so far. We will see how it goes though.

Doggone Brock, I thought I was losing my silly mind. I have been looking all over for where any factions or teams were announced. Then I happened to think to look and see what year and yep, you found some old posts. how the heck did you do that when most of us who WANT to find an old thread can't find it?

I don't think they have the factions any more. If they do, I don't know about them and I've been here 2 years.

Apparently, factions are one of those aspects of the site that disappeared with the advent of the "new" Sploofus, but they were so meaningless, that I had not even noticed they were gone. No big loss there.
