Would anyone like to reduce the time period for questions to be answered? It seems like a week is a long time to wait to see who gets a question right...most of us reply within a day or two from when the message is sent. Maybe a three day period would be sufficient? :-?

That's a good question, but likely still too early to tell. Let's wait until we have the trivia folder, then there will be no notification popups anymore, and people will just casually open their trivia boxes when they feel like it. :-?

I would have to agree. I say 60 hours is enough time. That is 2 1/2 days

A week is good if you travel or ever go anywhere on vacation.

I may have missed this in the rules, but I was wondering... What happens if nobody gets the question correct?

It simply remains unanswered.

Well, if there's a week deadline, and I stump everyone with a question, shouldn't I get a point?

No that would start havok... all you'd see is impossible questions that nobody can answer.

And also... nobody answered the first question I posted. Time is ticking }:-)

Well, a bunch of people answered my question, they just all got it wrong. Maybe if a certain amount of people guess or something?

You're question was ridiculous and misleading though. The last thing I wasnt is people doing that just so they can get a trivia point.
