Re: NASAT Online Mirror

I would prefer the double mirror approach because I won't be able to play on the later date, which would have been the more preferred date according to the poll.

Re: ACF Nationals discussion

I loved this tournament. The history questions were just fantastic, so shout out to anyone involved in the creation of them. I did have one question though... For the Welsh Marches Tossup why did it ask for "two domains" at the beginning. This may actually just be a really simple explanation that I'...

Re: The end of the match

Right now, when teams shake hands at the end of quizbowl games, it is mostly a shitshow where people are throwing their hands into a massive disorganized pile-on of players. This reeks of quizbowl. It would be better if teams stayed in the order they were sitting, faced each other, stood in lines, ...

Re: ACF and Powers (POLL)

I don't think this is that hard. Literally you could just have the head editor be like "ok mates I want the power mark to end so that we intend to have 33% of people power it by the end of the tossup". Then he can send that logistics email to every other editor so they're all on the same page. Of c...

Re: ACF and Powers (POLL)

Powermarking is tricky because you really have to seriously consider what is the clue/word that separates "maybe a third of the people are buzzing" to "maybe half of the people are buzzing." You also, if you want to be as fair as possible, want all the people putting in powermarks to be on the same...

Re: ACF and Powers (POLL)

I think powers are kind of like three pointers in basketball, they're okay but I could do with out them. Given that most ACF tournaments are poduced in pretty compressed timeframes, this proposal would also create extra stress/work for the editors. I think the status quo is just fine. I really don'...
