Welcome to the fifth season of the Chart Forum Quiz! cheer.gif

This season will consist of 10 weeks of different quizzes, between October & December 2021, hosted by different members and volunteers are welcome! happy.gif

If you would like to host a quiz, then please post here which week you would like to take and what quiz you would like to do. You can do one of the tried and tested formats or if you have your own format explain it to me so it can be considered. Your questions ideally should all be chart music related.

Quizzes usually last for a week and a results thread will be made once all the answers have been collected after the closing deadline.

Both myself and PeteFromLeeds will be your points of reference for this season. Please get in touch with either of us for any directions or any ideas you may have. Each of us plan to host one quiz each during this season, but this means of course we welcome more volunteers to host weekly quizzes! wink.gif

Schedule:

Week 1 (03/10): Quick fire Quiz with chrissmith276 [Entry / Results]
Week 2 (10/10): Pointless With A Twist with PeteFromLeeds [Entry / Results]
Week 3 (17/10): Only Connect with Doctor Blind [Entry / Results]
Week 4 (24/10): Family Fortunes with awardinary [Entry / Results]
Week 5 (31/10): Quiz of Two Halves with Mangø [Entry / Results]
Week 6 (07/11): Song Title Anagrams with jimwatts [Entry / Results]
Week 7 (14/11): Chart Predictions with Mangø [Entry / Results]
Week 8 (21/11): Never Mind The Buzzjacks with JulianT [Entry / Results]
Week 9 (28/11): Quick fire Quiz II with chrissmith276 [Entry / Results]
Week 10 (05/12): Pointless (with Bonuses) with jimwatts [Entry]

For those of you unfamiliar with Quizzes here is an explanation of the main formats from Bré;

QUOTE
FAMILY FORTUNES
(example from last year: voting thread / results thread)
In this quiz, the host asks a series of questions (typically 10 of them) and participants answer each question with what they think the MOST popular response will be. Points are scored based on how many other people gave the same answer as you to each question, so for example if the question is 'name a single by El Chombo' and 15 people responded 'Dame Tu Cosita', each of those people would be given 14 points for that question. Most points wins.

POINTLESS
(example from last year: voting thread / results thread)
This quiz is basically the inverse of Family Fortunes. The host will, again, ask a series of ~10 questions, but here the participants answer each question with what they think the LEAST popular response will be. Points are allocated the same way as in Family Fortunes but here it's the player with the fewest points at the end that wins (so the best answer to a question - a Pointless answer - is one that no other participant answered). There's also the catch that an incorrect answer is penalised by giving the answerer the maximum possible score for that question, i.e. one less than the number of participants (so if there are 31 participants and someone answered the question 'name a winner of the X Factor' with 'Michelle McManus', they would be given 30 points for that question).


NEVER MIND THE BUZZJACKS
(example from last year: voting thread / results thread)
The host uploads onto SoundCloud/YouTube a series of short (usually instrumental) clips from songs, usually about 20 of them, and participants simply have to name the songs, scoring a point for each one they get right, or a half-point for guessing the right artist. There's also often some kind of bonus questions based on the songs on the side for additional points. Here's a quick guide RabbitFurCoat put together wayyy back in the day with some instructions for uploading a round of NMTBJ onto SoundCloud.

ALBUM COVER PUZZLE
(example from last year: voting thread / results thread)
The host makes a collage of cropped sections from album covers, usually about 20 of them, and participants name the albums that they are taken from. Participants get points for each one they get right - this may just be 1 point per correct answer, or a varying number of points decided by the hosts based on how difficult they think each one is to guess. Like in NMTBJ there may also be bonus questions on the side for additional points.


OTHER FORMATS
You are also welcome to try other formats out which aren't listed above! For example, last year we had:-

Dingbats (courtesy of PeteFromLeeds)

Only Connect (courtesy of Suedehead)

So you're welcome to propose something brand new or use one of these alternative formats as well.

The leaderboard works by giving 30 points to the winner of each quiz, 29 points to the runner-up and so on. If there are more than 30 participants, anyone outside the top 30 will walk away with nothing. If the host is unable to participate in their own quiz (ie if it's NMTBJs/ACP) or wishes to sit out their own FF/Pointless quiz (hosts are allowed to participate in these, on the basis that they write their own answers before others start coming in) then 'host compensation points' are given by taking the average of their points attained from other quizzes.

If you have any questions feel free to ask and we will try our best to get back to you! happy.gif

I'll be doing a Pointless With a Twist (the twist being the same as last time). It will have to be Week 2 or later though as I'm still waiting on wifi for my new place.

Anybody interested in hosting a quiz in the opening week, which we hope can start this weekend? Ideally a non-pointless quiz as that’s what Pete hopes to host the following week.

I can do another Anagrams Quiz! cool2.gif

Week 6 is fine, maybe I could launch it a couple of weeks earlier to give people more time?

Oh nice thanks Jim! It’s all yours unless someone needs a swap nearer their week they can discuss with you.

Maybe should start it today given each one takes about a day to solve! wink.gif

I’m happy to do another NMTB style one - thinking Week 8 would be best for me.

Thanks Julian! I’d like to try hosting one of these quizzes someday but as I’ve already decided to go with Family Fortunes this season I’ll stick with that, so thanks for offering something different!

Anyone wanting to host an album/singles cover quiz for this season?
