Fire Fletcher 2,617 Posted August 24, 2020 Share Posted August 24, 2020 OK, so normally I do some bullet points about some things going on in the league and bullshit my way to 150 words. Not today. Today, I am airing grievances about our current trivia set up. As a way of earning capped TPE, members have the opportunity to answer 2 trivia questions to earn 2 TPE. The trivia questions are posted early in the week (usually on Monday) and then the answers are provided and everyone claims their TPE. Now why am I complaining? Because the answers to the trivia questions were posted around 2PM Eastern today. I know there is nothing formal in place, but this is way too early. In the past, the answers have been posted around 8 PM or so. This is still kind of early, but I can't say it's super early. However, 2 PM is WAY too early - that's 11AM on the west coast and basically cuts off the full day for those people. My main problem with this off the top of my head, there is no other capped TPE that does not follow the Monday-Sunday point task week. For every other task, members have the full 7 days to earn TPE. Trivia should be no different - you have 7 days to get your answers in. Now, some people will tell me to just not be lazy and to get my stuff ahead of time. To them, I say....no - I have 7 days to do everything else, meaning I can do everything else at 11:59 PM, so there is no reason I shouldn't be able to do trivia at 11:59 PM. Some will say that trivia answers need to be posted early so that those who don't get both questions right can still find another way to hit the 12 TPE cap. To that, I say....get good. One of the risks of doing trivia is that you can get the answer wrong (or trust the wrong person) and lose out on 1 TPE. At the end of the day, it's 1 TPE, it's not a big deal. Another complaint I've heard is that people like to get all of their updates in for the week before the week actually ends. To that, I say...you can wait 12 hours or 24 hours to update your 2 TPE for the previous week so that everyone has an equal opportunity to answer the questions. So what is my formal proposal? I propose that trivia answers are posted no earlier than Monday of the following PT week when that week's questions are posted. Trivia TPE would then be eligible to be earned for the week of the trivia questions, not the week the answers were posted. This would be uniform with all of our other capped TPE offerings - there is no other method of earning capped TPE that allows you to claim back TPE like we currently allow for trivia. This also allows everyone to be on the same page for when trivia will be posted and how long a member has to complete it. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk. eaglesfan036 and lil OG z 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
