BETA 2.0 IS COMING AT LAST

Hooray. It looks as if we are going to be allowed in from the cold at last.

I'm glad everyone will be together again. Some of the problems of 2.0 aren't fixed yet though. I'm going to be watching the threads with amused interest to see what everyone else thinks.

I've been looking for the "Who" and the "Where" all afternoon, and when I clicked to log back in, it said server couldn't be found. Thought I'd entered the "Twilight Zone"! I finally realized I needed to use the link for Sploofus without the beta in front of it. That was a relief. Thought I had been banned for awhile. I guess the beta link is gone forever.

Maybe we can start a new forum for 2.0 "whatever" - to keep the salty dog from becoming nothing but growth pains for 2.0 - just a thought - hate to think I'd miss a smaug, lodi or chick post if it becomes buried

Sorry, the above message from Seetherchic, signed Marilyn, should be Uclonewolf3. Log in mess up! Sounds like I'm having all kinds of problems. Maybe I know Who The Heck I Am now. Think I've been doing too much searching for the Who's and Where's.

My window for opening my TQotD says "Action: View Trivia Question."
But I would like to use a wager token. Where's the check box?

Also, I remember much discussion of turning off the drop down
menus. How is that done?

You can't turn off the drop downs. Keep going with your TQOTD and it will ask you if you want to use a wager token. You know also have a real handy button that lets you "bet the max" so you don't have to type in any numbers.

Oh no! My first whine. Now ALL the players times and rank shows on WPS. I've hidden my shameful low scores all this time, but no more.

On the other hand, it's blast-off speedy! I know you testers said it was faster, but holy cow! LOVIN' that!

Just wanted to announce that the Original Beta Members Saturday Night Cool Guys Party will be moved from Location Theta Episolon to Location Gamma Sigma due to a security leak.

Also, Bobby DeNiro will be about 15 minutes late.

Why does every category show the quizzes I've already taken with a line through it? Is this a bug that will be fixed?

So when you search for quizzes, you don't have to click on those ones to see if you've already taken it.

As we see, some things from the old Sploofus did not become new, improved or updated - still the same ol' curmudgeon. (((ducking)))

Don't know if any have yet done their TQotD on S2, but that lag is still there.
Used a wager token and didn't think I was going to make it.

Well that was a shock to my system, but i think i am getting a little bit used to it. I played word puzzle this morning and came back around 9:00 p.m. this enenig and bang right in the middle of 2.0

Is this just for the gold and platinum members? I ask this because my gold membership will be out soon and it is so awesome I hate to lose it.

Scifidwarf - 2.0 is the only Sploofus now. It is for everyone. But Gold and platinum members can still do more here than nonpaying members can. For example, If you let your Gold expire you would be down to only one WordPuzzle/week. That would give me the shakes!

Pardon me for asking, there might be a logical explanation, but how did Marylin get to use "Seetherchick" and "Uclonewolf3" as two different identities?

A lot of Sploofusers have spouses or other family members who are also Sploofusers and share a PC. It occasionally happens that one leaves the PC without logging off and another starts playing without noticing that.

Thanks, Larry, in response to Barnie! That's exacting what happened. We have Firefox which automatically remembers user names and passwords. I had signed up for the Beta from the beginning, but the other family member hadn't and had been using the "old" Sploofus site. Therefore when the website changed to the sploofus.com as opposed to beta.sploofus.com, her login name just happened to automatically come up and I clicked it without noticing. I saw where Justin had said Beta was ready for release to the other members, but while I was searching for one of the Who and Where grids, and went back to Beta, it said "server not found". It took me a minute to figure out what was happening, and that I needed to use the sploofus.com address. Almost had a panic attack when the pictures I had been searching for so long had disappeared. I wasn't really sure how the transformation would take place. Hopefully, with just one site to keep up with, I won't let that happen again!

What happened to the Level Leaders lists and to the nifty lists of members who've taken my quizzes? And the quizzes I am writing don't show up full-page in bold so I can proofread easily. Otherwise, it's very colorful.

Cujgie - the Level Leaders list is not currently on Sploofus 2.0 but several of us have requested it in suggestions, so hopefully it will appear again in the future.

Regarding your authored quizzes - Click on 'My Sploofus', then to the right of 'Works in Progress' you will see 'View Published Games' - this will take you to your quizzes. You can then select an individual quiz to see the list of takers, together with averages and a nifty graph!

Hope this helps.
