    Default The FMCU Forum Quiz 2012!

    The FMCU Forum Quiz!



    This isn't a career thread or anything to do with Football Manager for that fact however it is all to do with the people of the Football Manager Career Updates Forum, so I suppose you could 'technically' say that it is to do with careers and Football Manager. What I can say, for certain, is that this thread is exactly what it says on the tin, well the title, it's a Quiz for the FMCU Forum users. How did this idea come about I hear you ask! Well, I was on B.W.G's brilliant career thread and I made the comment 'You'd be great at writing quizzes' to which he (I assume B.W.G is male) responded: 'I'd be much better at writing them than answering them' so I thought this has to be tested, who is the sharpest tool in the box? Brightest spark in the oven? Of the FMCU forum...

    I discussed the possibility of this happening on the FM Career Forum Discussion thread and it got thumbs up from a lot of people, so we then discussed the rules/layout of this quiz. I'd already given a guideline but I wanted other peoples input, seen as they will be competing in the quiz itself and here is the outline of the quiz:

    • The Quiz will last for 10 weeks with 1 round each week.
    • So it's 10 'Rounds' in total, each week being a round.
    • 10 Normal questions each round, each worth 1 point if answered correctly.
    • 5 of those questions will be on football and the other 5 will be general knowledge.
    • 1 Bonus question each week which will be worth 2 points.
    • The bonus question will be about the career thread of the previous week's winner.
    • The 1st week the bonus question will be on my career thread, seen as we have no 'previous week winner'.
    • If we get someone that wins 2 weeks running then the bonus question will move to the runner ups thread.

    Thank you to SnakeXe for the idea of 5 questions on football and the other 5 on general knowledge.
    Thank you to Makonnen for the idea of a bonus question being about the thread of the previous week's winner.
    And thank you to everyone who commented and put forward ideas, voted and gave me the thumbs up.

    The way this will work is, I will put all 11 questions up on a Tuesday, I will try and get them up between 4pm and 5pm (UK time), if not, they will definitely be up on that Tuesday. Then everyone in the Quiz can PM their answers (any time up to Midnight on the Monday) once I have got all the answers in and checked I will announce everyone's scores and the correct answers to each questions. I won't embarrass people by putting up their wrong answers

    The overall winner will be determined by whoever has the most amount of points at the end of the 10 weeks, this will be displayed in a weekly updated league table with information such as how many bonus points they have received etc.

    Now obviously, with this being on the internet you could technically cheat but really, what is the point? You're not going to win anything (I know I've just lost a lot of interest ) apart from pride of knowing you're a know it all, well a very intelligent person is the way I look at it. So don't ruin it and cheat. After all this Quiz is for the enjoyment of the great community we have here! *large crowd cheers in the background*
    However there are rules and here are those god forsaken rules:

    • No cheating.
    • You have to refer to me as the Quiz master.
    • Don't copy each other's answers.
    • If your pen runs out, tough should have brought a spare.
    • And most of all enjoy it!

    Obviously you don't have to refer to me as the Quiz master but please, don't copy each other's answers or I'll have to devise a seating plan and sit you boy girl.

    Please comment saying if you want to take part in this Quiz it would be great to have a lot of you and there aren't any restrictions on how many people can join. The closing date for joining is a week on Tuesday (for those of you who can't spare 30 seconds to work it out that's Tuesday the 17th of January) Here are the candidates that have already signed up for 10 weeks of torture, err I mean enjoyment

    ssestig - nope, you don't have to have a career on here. If you win one of the weeks and don't have a career thread the bonus question will go to the runner up thread etc
    Flamers - I've just set one up today before I saw your post, thanks anyway though

    Thanks for all the interest as well, I'm amazed so many have already joined. Hopefully we can a few (a lot? ) more for the 17th!

    I'll give it a go but I'll be away for one week skiing.

    As we don't have to call you the Quiz Master, I'm going to call you the Quiz Cock instead.

    Think I'll just be passive for now until I see the questions. If there is a big "wooooosh" sound I will pass!

    Great interest in this, really looking forward to it! Just getting the first set of questions together then they should be up a week on Tuesday unless there is a demand for another day?

    Should be a great quiz, a lot of competitors!

    I agree with this, we have a good number of entrants now so would be nice to get going earlier if possible.

    There is something that's been bothering me for a bit, while I appreciate the question about the previous weeks winner's thread gives it a forum element, either it benefits the guy who is already on a roll or people will more easily be able to look it up without it counting as searching online. I'd feel slightly cheating if I did and a bit disadvantaged if I didn't as it might be taken as being ok, it's that sort of 'half-way' situation.

    The idea of the Bonus Question was simple: It rewarded the person who won last weeks round and it got people reading each others thread, you are allowed to look through the whole thread for that answer, it's encouraged, I may have missed that out in the OP. Obviously every other question you can't look anywhere for but for the bonus question you are encouraged to look for the answer. This will also show who is more determined to win

    They had 60cm fall in a single day on Friday and at the moment they have three times more snow than they had this time last year. It bodes very well.

    Wow, amazing place to go. I'm a good few years off being able to go somewhere with purely Red and Black runs!

    Enjoy!

    Fully intend to Quiz Cock.

    Went to Les Arcs four (I think) years ago, but the Vanoise Express lift connecting it to La Plagne was shut.
    Staying in a chalet for the first time this year. I can see that being either fab or tonk.

    I can only imagine it will be fab. When we went to Scotland we had an 1 hour drive to and from the Ski resort every day which was a bit of a trek but it was worth it for the Skiing. So far I've only been to Finland, Austria and Scotland skiing, hopefully that list will extend

    I'm going to be away for a couple of weeks of this. Completely forgot about my upcoming holiday when I signed up. I'm still going to compete for the weeks I'm here if thats okay. I'll probably miss weeks 2 and 3. Should be back for week 4

    Getting your excuses in early eh?

    Nah, that's completely fine! I assume you wont have internet access? I could e-mail you the Questions if you didn't want to come on the Forum while on holiday!

    Have a great time anyway

    There's a lot of competition so I had to make some excuse

    Off to Goa for a few weeks with the missus. Chances are I'll just be relaxing so won't be going online if there is any internet access.

    We'll have a short ski to the ski lifts and then be able to ski to pretty much the front door of the chalet.

    Wow, first I was really impressed as I thought you meant the place in Mali. But that was called Gao (what would I do without google? ). Looks like you mean in India (fits with the username I suppose), which should be spectacular too. Enjoy

    I was just asking everyone to send me an email with their usernames so I could store them in my contacts.

    I could have got the answers sent via PM but just thought email would have been easier.

    If you haven't sent an email don't worry, I'll explain everything when the first set of questions is up later

    Unfortunately, I'm also a Forest fan although not looking forward to League One. Although I did hear that the January transfer window has seen some activity for us which has brightened up my hopes for the remainder of the season. Apparently we've had the captain of the Costa Concordia down at the City Ground yesterday...Doughty and MArthur want his views on how best to deal with a sinking ship!

    Hahahahahahahahahaha . I'm not looking forward to League One either. Just saying it for the sake of it. Last time we were there, it took us three seasons to get free. This time I reckon it could be 5 if we go down as alot of our players will want to move on.

    Is it too late to join this? I just got my computer back today from the repair shop (hard drive replacement , I've only had internet access through my Wii since Christmas !) but I would love to be involved if that is still possible!

    Not sure on my football quiz credentials, but I'll give it a go!

    Have to admit, this season has gone much better for us than expected so far. I said, give the new manager 3 seasons to get us up. 1st season top 12, 2nd season playoffs, 3rd season top 2.

    Massive game this Saturday though, I'm obviously hoping we can win, not bothered about how we go up, so long as we go up.

    Default How to send in your answers

    So, the first round is to be posted and you will be wondering how you are going to send in your answers, to make it as easy as possible for everyone you can do either of the following:
    1. E-Mail your answers to this adress: fmcareerupdates@hotmail.co.uk when you are e-mailing me your answers please put as the title 'Username - Round no.' for example, if I was sending in my answers for this round I would put as the title 'HotChocolate - Round 1'
    2. If you haven't emailed me yet and you are to send in your answers, don't worry. Just send me your answers as stated above.
    3. Or you can PM on here, I will make sure my Inbox is clear, so if you are to PM your answers use the same method as the e-mail, the title will be: 'Username - Round no.' example: 'HotChocolate - Round 1'.
    Hope that all makes sense to you! If you have any questions you can ask me, via PM, e-mail or on this thread.

    Enjoy!

    Emailed my answers, was totally stumped on 4 of those questions.

    I spent a good long few minutes desperately trying to remember the first FA Cup winner, it was one of those things where you have read the answer before, know that you know it but for the life of you can't remember it before suddenly having that Eureka moment!

    Cheers guys.

    I did and do know about the double answers, either will be accepted you don't have to get both (unless I gave an amount you had to give)

    Sorry, should have made that clear
