IMSANITY 2 set available for mirrors

Post by Dominator »

The quizbowl team of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy is currently producing its second iteration of IMSANITY. The set would be available for mirrors throughout the spring.

The set is written in ACF format and is not power-marked. It will be regular difficulty.

The distribution of the set is as follows:
4 Literature
3.5 History
3.5 Science
1.5 Math
3 Fine Arts
2.5 RMP
1 Social Science/Geography
1 Trash/Current Events

If you are interested in the set, please email me at <[email protected]> to discuss particulars.

I submitted the IMSANITY set from last year to George for posting at quizbowlpackets.com.

The source of delay was that I wanted to make certain aspects of layout better and more efficient. There are still some things I'm not happy with (like with spacing of answer lines) that I intend to fix before IMSANITY 2. However, I am very happy with one aspect, namely, the in-document linking. After each tossup and bonus, there is a link to the following one. When I moderate from a computer, I open a copy of the questions for tossups on the top half of my screen and one for bonuses on the bottom, but I lose a lot of between-question time simply scrolling. By including the link to the next question, I do not have to scroll at all, and so I can read the packet noticeably faster. Any thoughts on this system?

It has come to my attention that my emailing the set to George for inclusion on quizbowlpackets.com was an ineffective move. I am posting a sample packet here to attempt to get the conversation I tried to start in the previous post started.

Should this be moved to the mirror request forum?
