Re: Specific question discussion

I was told that my answer of Atwood's Machine was incorrect because it was "Atwood"; however, to my understanding, the two names are equivalent. Perhaps this should be changed?

Also, could I see the tossups on "Sirius" and "resistors"? I feel like at least of the two was a bit too transparent.

This would have been a MUCH better pseudonym.

Also, I would like to thank MSU for running a great tournament on some great questions. The long drive was totally worth it.

Re: Illinois '12-'13

According to the stats, the "two guys" are Greg and Rohan. Also, I echo the sentiment that Greg is an underrated player - he pulled 105 ppg at Earlybird. I look forward to playing those guys in the future.

Re: Horatio Nelson Memorial Tournament at MSU, October 20

Oh...well I emailed you again. And just in case you don't receive that one either, I am signing up 1 team for a team under the pseudonym "Not Metea Valley," with no buzzers or moderators. I'm going to be the only person playing on the team, so I was also wondering about any solo player discounts you...

Re: ProtoBowl

I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude for the existence of ProtoBowl. We all like to nitpick about answer algorithms and small features, but honestly, this website has really bolstered interest in quizbowl in my school. Because it's so readily accessible, members of my team are excited to pl...

Any news on the field expansion? I believe our coach signed us up for a few teams at this tournament.

Re: NIU HS Mirror of ACF Fall: November 3, 2012 in DeKalb, IL

Metea Valley A would like to register, with the possibility of a B team and a name change if our administration wishes. Unfortunately, we cannot provide buzzers or moderators. If we need to sign up centrally, how do we indicate that we're doing the HS Mirror? There doesn't seem to be spot for it on ...

Re: Illinois '12-'13

NIU will be hosting a high schools-only mirror of ACF Fall on November 3rd. Brad or anyone else: Will the fee structure of the high schools-only ACF Fall mirror be the same as all regular ACF events? Also, if I wouldn't be able to make that date, are there any other mirrors of ACF Fall relatively c...

Re: OSPL 2012-2013 EXPERT - Official Sign Up Post for August

In light of the ongoing discussion on the first OSPL announcement, I'll play this, rather than novice.

Hopefully I average >0 PPG!

Re: Illinois '12-'13

So I don't think I know all of the Illinois teams well enough to have the authority to rank them, but I can offer some insight on my own team. 10. Metea Valley - Shreyas knows science pretty well, but I'm not sure how good he/his team are at picking up other categories. Yeah, so our entire team is p...

Re: ATROPHY 3 @ Northern Illinois University (4/28/12)

Both tournaments were great. I really liked both BHSAT and ATTACK; they were super well written and I had a lot of fun playing on good questions. I only had a small issue with the time delay because it was a bit tougher for me to get a ride home, but it wasn't too big of a deal. I'm really glad me a...

Re: Masonics

This is the second year I've played at Masonic and the questions were much, much better than last year. I thought the Oswego East site ran pretty smoothly on the whole.
