~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Anncouncing...
Total Quiz XIV

Thursday January 25
1 PM North America East Coast and default Server Time
7 PM Central Europe
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Total Quiz is a contest held every 3 months in which participants attempt to answer some very interesting questions about history. If you've never played in a TQ, be sure to not miss this one!

The first round will be 48 hours - if there are any unanswered questions after that, a second 24 hour round will follow.

You can read Rules, Policies, ... Here

Quiz Moderators: Imperator Invictus, Poirot (additional assistant moderator pending).

Submitting Questions:

I just realized that the questions submission form wasn't working even though I had announced that it was working (for the second time). This time, though it is working for real, so you can submit your questions here:
http://www.allempires.com/TQ/submit_question.php

We are looking for at least 3-4 good questions from guest authors like you. (Max 1 question on a single Quiz per expected participant.)

On the other hand, it's not too late to submit more questions. I think the form finally works now.

I think I will submit one (and make it beyond anything one can hope for).

Oh, Praetor, I see that you have the first place in mind. However, amongst many others, there are quite a few people you'll have to consider: Dawn, Decebal and Knights amongst the first of these, although the entire list is a lot longer..

Great Confused  I'm not brave enough to say I'm going to beat you Decebal ( I know from experience that it is easier said than done but I have done it so it is possible) but I'm sure going to try  and even Rocky might not help you  Wink

Sigh, I don't know if I should try. It's obvious that the one of the moderators would win...
