Re: Quinterest: Hassle-free Database Search

Quinterest has been acting weirdly for me on Chrome for the past few days; search terms are just not returning any results whatsoever and the "Tournament" drop-down isn't showing any tournaments, just "all." It works in interface mode and on other browsers I tried. I updated Chrome and still no dic...

Re: Specific Questions Discussion

Can you post the toss up on oxygen evolution? I remember buzzing in with light reactions halfway through because I was unfamiliar with the term.

Re: What defines a team captain?

Does the rest of the team (and JV team) view you as acting more like a captain? I would say to hold a vote for who should be team captain, and explain to the rest of your team that you take on most of the responsibility of the team and that you are the highest scorer. I wasn't captain of my team ori...

Re: 25th Annual Walton Academic Challenge - 10/18/14

Why don't you stop meddling in Georgia Quizbowl and telling us how to run things. User was warned for violating the forum rules: "telling other people not to discuss quiz...

Re: Red Tape

Pretty much everything Vasa said. I'm 99% sure GATA and every other tournament in Georgia would be willing to let you guys play under fake team names, so no worries about no affilition. (Not sure how that would affect what division you guys get put in for state, though.) Just make sure that the fak...

Red Tape

My school system has decided to enforce new rules regarding transportation to club-related activities. All students must be driven by their own parent (carpool not allowed), including quizbowl tournaments. This is obviously a problem for my school's team seeing as we will never be able to get 4+ par...

Re: 2013-14 NAQT IS sets: question-specific discussion

At the NAQT Missouri Qualifier on IS-134, we had a protest on this bonus part that affected who advanced to be the top 4 teams in the tournament: C. Toulouse-Lautrec was a part of a movement named for coming after this other artistic movement, whose representative painters include Monet and Renoir....

Re: How to practice when at an intermediate level

A scrimmage would be great. I'll make sure to talk to my coach about it. We should talk more about it over Facebook. Also, thank you to everyone for the good ideas! This problem has been mostly solved by now by having A team only practices once a week and me being able to practice with the Georgia N...

Current Events?

Over the summer, I developed a new study strategy to improve in a few subjects for quiz bowl. This includes such things as reading textbooks, using SparkNotes and Wikipedia, etc. on a weekly schedule. I fell like I have made pretty good progress in all subjects except one: current events. Last year,...

Re: Distribution

Personally, I think YA "Lit", if it must be used, should be shoved into trash and not come at the expense of the Lit distribution. I agree with this. I am fine with trash lit coming up at tournaments, but it is extremely frustrating when one of the four literature questions per game is taken by a t...

Re: How to practice when at an intermediate level

Well, I guess I may have been misleading. Our team isn't really new... I just didn't know what forum this post should have gone in. We do have several sets of buzzers, so there is enough for everyone. I asked my coach about a skirmish match today, but my coach said she has tried in the past, but it ...

How to practice when at an intermediate level

Since the beginning of this year, my academic team has been having a problem at practice. The majority of my team is sophomores and freshmen, and there are a few juniors (including me). Naturally, the majority of our team is fairly new to quizbowl, so we have a great divide in skill level. We have b...
