Re: INTRODUCING THE AMERICAN QUIZBOWL LEAGUE

I want to preface this post with a disclaimer that nothing in here is intended to attack Joe or AQBL (or anyone else associated with AQBL, either named or anonymous). I do not doubt their passion for quizbowl and their belief that they are doing a good thing by trying to start a new centralized orga...

Re: On HS Teams Without Coaches

For what it's worth Basil's team also has an official adult coach. I guess it's worth asking: Has anyone ever filed a complaint with that person? It's also worth noting that the official coach was not involved at most tournaments they attended. Also, if I'm not mistaken, Basil's also graduated from...

Re: Y'all need to pay attention to your own community

Like I said in my first post, I am seeing no introspection, and honestly, I don’t think I ever will. I respectfully disagree that I haven’t seen any introspection on the men’s part, because I would consider the discussion of how the discourse makes them feel to be introspection in its own way. But ...

Men of Quizbowl, We Should Talk.

So. Men of quizbowl. Let’s talk about the misogyny (and other gender-based misconduct) problem in the community, again. I am furious that we clearly need to continually have these conversations, but I’m going to try and be as levelheaded as possible. I’m not going to yell at you, and I’m not going t...

Re: Directing bonus answers in Discord tournaments

When I was moderating WORKSHOP Online, both open and closed, I requested that players confer in voice if they were able and then type their answers (or if they were conferring in chat, to say "DIRECTED: [answer]" or write it in all-caps. Some of them did, some of them were voice-chatting in another ...

Re: Alex Wallace's big career retrospective

Alex, I don't think you're giving yourself enough credit for your role in the revitalization of the team. You are and have always been an excellent player who cares deeply for both the game of quizbowl and our team specifically. You were the only person this year who has been with us since the last ...

Re: DII Midseason Poll

Thanks for the podcast! For future reference, William & Mary's team at ICT will be composed of Logan, Akshata, Christian, and myself (replacing Saurav.) I'm still fairly new to NAQT-style quizbowl, but I'm primarily a literature player with moderate knowledge of arts & current events and some social...

Re: Small Colleges, LACs, and ICT

I wanted to add my two cents regarding Susan's point about college consortiums. I attended Smith College, which is one of the Five Colleges along with Amherst, for one year before transferring to William & Mary. I had done some form of quizbowl (local house-written tournaments in middle school, NHBB...
