Do we have any idea who they actually are? ��

They might be genuine members but it's unlikely. My guess is that they tried to cheat by entering a fake username to find out what the questions were before then entering again with their real usernames, having had time to research the answers. Hope I'm wrong though, would be a shame if that were the case.

haha I thought the same, but seems like a lot of trouble for a game that's just supposed to be fun

Oh that’s a shame if they did that, but thankfully it doesn’t look like it’s impacted the game too much.

They did pretty well if they were doing a trial run though. The real attempt would then need to belong to someone who finished higher than them, which I think is very unlikely. If there had been some unknown users with blank / rubbish answers near the bottom that would seem more suspicious for trial running.

Could just be guest members who don't want to formally sign up to the forum doing it for fun?

I had a similar idea for a quiz format but never got round to doing it, so looking forward to your one!

Yeah it's possible, which is why I included them in the leaderboard for now.

I assumed this was the case which is why I thought they'd be left off the leaderboard ~

Just a reminder to Pete who kindly offered to host a quiz this week if that’s still possible. wink.gif

Another invite for more hosts in the coming weeks if you have an idea of something to arrange for everyone! happy.gif

In case of no host for next week, as it stands that is the case, would you mind hosting your chart a week early if possible? smile.gif

Since "D" and "G" finished ahead of Bjork in last week's quiz, I have them to thank for still being top laugh.gif

I still need some time to prep, but if no other hosts have come forward by Sunday then maybe - alternatively I could launch mine a few days earlier but keep the results day the same.

(48) =19. CJK (30 points)

I'm going to be like a rubbish single which was wallowing outside the charts and then was performed on Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway or something and managed to make the charts... only to fall away just as quickly the week after!!

Hahaha I like this analogy.

I am suffering a third single slump after a #1 and a #3 in the last 2 seasons....

I'm like a front-loaded early 2000's single with my 1-6-12 chart run so far!

I've got a NMTB style quiz almost ready (which I started preparing before I changed my mind and did the Album Covers quiz) so if need be, I could host that for next week's quiz. I've also got my quiz of two halves which I never did, if subsequent weeks need filling. Obviously it would be great if there was a variety of hosts but I'm perfectly happy to step in whenever needed, as for once I've actually got a little more time on my hands at the moment.

That's great, if you're happy to go ahead with that next week, I'll stick with the week after.
