I don't think that there's going to be a second round, since all the questions have been answered by at least one person.

On Question 8, I've decided to accept an alternative answer different from what I had intended, due to ambiguity in the question.

oh Its just that scores won't be updated continuously, so that people near my time zone would have an advantage.

I'm sure I prefered it the other way even when the moderator(stry and TJK) where on the other side of the planet from me particulairly when the mod forgets to update ....

Richard Niehart... is that you Paul?

I have the feeling that Dawn is once again going to squeeze by me on the basis of the bonus points and win the quiz. Oh well, at least I'm giving her a good challenge.

Richard Niehart hmm

Don't underestimate poirot Decebal, we might be tied for second after Dawn   Dawn amazes me with her ability at Total Quiz.  I think she deserves to win   She is the only person (so far) to answer #11.  And that question (if it must be answered without external resources) is one that even a historian has to think twice about.

Ahmed the scores are at the begining of this thread , your name is not there. When did you last submit answers? if it was less than two hours ago they will not appear untill II updates in a few hours. if it was more than 2 hrs ago you have not got correct answers and need to try again.

Yep, the scores have to be updated by humans so it depends on when I have time.

I'll try to update the scores again at 2:30 (one hour before the end of the quiz), but that is not guarenteeed since I'm away from home at that time and may not be able to find a computer.

*clears throat.  Imperator I really appreciate your generoristiy, but I must insist that I get the full 1 point for number 8, rather than the 1.5.    I think it must be a typo.

You can submit as many times as you want until you get the correct answer (but I will only consider the most recent of your answers each time I check scores).

1 hour remaining!

That's it. TQ is over.

Scores with bonuses* have been posted. Stay tuned for the answers to the questions and the final concluding "ceremony" once all the results have been confirmed. It looks like Dawn has won this one, but it was pretty close, as you can see.

I hope everyone had fun playing TQ!

*Bonus points are based on the percentage of correctly answered questions, excluding those submitted by the participant.

Wow, that was close. Congratulations Dawn. I still don't know how you got Question 11. I ended up looking at several complete lists of Chinese emperors with their surnames and went through them one by one, and still didn't get the answer...

II, I might end up pm'ing you next time I submit questions. I had submitted about 5 or 6, and apparently you didn't get any of them.
