Having secured permission from chart moderators PeteFromLeeds and DanG, we have the go ahead to start a fresh new chart quiz season for 2021! dance.gif

The season will consist of 12 weeks of different quizzes hosted by different members and volunteers are welcome! cheer.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. To start the season I will shortly host a chart Pointless quiz (as a change to my usual Album Cover quiz) and anyone wishing to host something on another week please send me a PM with the quiz and date you would like to have a go!

Schedule:

Week 1 (07/02): Pointless with awardinary [Entry / Results]
Week 2 (14/02): Quick Fire Quiz with chrissmith276 [Entry / Results]
Week 3 (21/02): Album Cover Quiz with Mangř [Entry / Results]
Week 4 (28/02): Chart Forum Dingbats with PeteFromLeeds [Entry / Results]
Week 5 (07/03): NMTB: Number 1 Intros with Mangř [Entry / Results]
Week 6 (14/03): Song Title Anagrams with jimwatts [Entry / Results]
Week 7 (21/03): Only Connect with Ansel [Entry / Results]
Week 8 (28/03): Pointless Fortunes with dan::G [Entry / Results]
Week 9 (04/04): NMTB with JulianT [Entry / Results]
Week 10 (11/04): Family Fortunes 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 I will try my best to get back to you!

Great this is back! Though it means I may not be keeping my title for long... I'll give some thought to hosting something, maybe in one of the later weeks.

My quiz will be called 'Mango's Quiz of Two Halves' smile.gif

I'm also happy to take a slot in one of the later weeks if there's still gaps (the takeup seems a little slack so far) as I've got a few ideas for a second quiz.

I’ve added the quiz theme to the schedule! smile.gif

You are most welcome to offer to host on another week, there’s not many others offering so far.

After some deliberation, I've decided to change my quiz format for next week to an Album Covers quiz. As it seems likely that there may be gaps to fill in later weeks I'll save my Two Halves quiz for then!

Even after consulting with Chris I couldn't decide whether to or not but went with it in the end - in any case I highly doubt they'll be scoring points in any subsequent quizzes so they'll be gone from the leaderboard soon enough.
