### Re: a Game of Thrones Set

I was wondering a few things: -Will content from the novellas or The World of Ice and Fire be covered, or just the main books? -Will there be a particular focus on either one of the show or the books? -Will you mix hints from the show and the books into the same tossup, or will only one be dealt wit...

Did you calculate EFT adjustments for these rankings? Lisgar played the UOttawa mirror but their PPB from that doesn't seem to be included.

### Re: Specific Question Discussion

Boolean operators are equivalent to logical connectives Right, but you're not simplifying the connectives themselves, you're simplifying the expression as a whole. That's like saying "conjunctions" when the question wants "sentences" (in a natural language sense). The answer line should definitely ...

I got the tossup on gamma rays at ACF Regionals on "bursts" because I remembered it from this. I also got a Jesus tossup at HSNCT last year on "Quest for the Historical [this man]" thanks to Eric Mukherjee's hsqb username.

### Re: Help with HSQBRank! (incl. HS teams at college tourneys)

I'm not sure which stats you're using for OQT, but NAQT has significantly different PPB recorded for Lisgar from what HSQB has. I'm using the HSQB one; SQBS reports tend to be messed up less than NAQT ones. A quick comparison between HSQB and NAQT shows that the discrepancy occurs in the match agai...

Unless I'm mistaken, two teams from this tournament qualify for HSNCT. What does the second-place tie mean in terms of who qualifies?

I still feel that most of the buzzes will be happening because of science knowledge and not science history knowledge, but you guys are probably right that the historical significance justifies it being there.

That was the one. I suppose that the way it's worded does technically make it all historical, but I'm still unsure as to whether the details regarding the equation really should be there. The issue (as I see it) is not that it's lacking any historical context, but that the hint is inviting a buzz ba...

First off, thanks to everybody (especially the Maddens of course) who made this tournament happen. All of us from Lisgar had an awesome time. Anyways, though I found that the "non-history" tossups generally did a good job at approaching the topics from a historical perspective, I'm inclined to agree...

Didn't know if this was the right place to post this, but couldn't find anywhere better. We (Lisgar) are running into a small issue in that we're bringing 7 guys and 1 girl, which makes room arrangements a little tough. We seem to have resolved the 7 guys part, but we still lack a roommate for our 8...

Hey, sorry if this has been asked before, but I was wondering... Do you count stuff like trash tournaments (like ACRONYM for example) towards the rankings? And if so, what would the stat adjustment be for ACRONYM?
