Are these trivia quiz geunine quiz or research projects - I answer them off the top of my head but sounds like others are going to get references for them eg maps, books etc
Lets play sporting please.
Even tho i've only answered one question correctly (which was the one about how far you can get without reversing etc...) that was all guesswork as I have absolutely no idea about this sort of stuff, oh, and i kinda worked out part of it from other peoples answers and where they went wrong.
Same with the Melbourne Suburban Quiz, i've answered tonnes of questions there but it's all from my head and if I don't know, I don't answer.
Lets hope everyone else plays like that too.
With the longest trip without reversing question, I doubt there are any references you could use to find the answer. Although using a map helps. Is this unsporting? I wouldn't think so, as it doesn't tell you the answer. With some other questions the answers are easily found elsewhere.
In my case, I when I answer a question, I can either know off the top of my head, or know off the top of my head where the answer is. I do have a relatively large railway library right behind me as I type this. I have used this to confirm my answers or add to them. But in the case of the list of closed branches, I did look up a list in Newsrail. If this is considered unsporting, then I'm sorry. I hadn't thought it was a problem. This is not a live radio or tv quiz where such things are cheating. I was unaware of any similar rules here. In any case, there are no prizes to be won.
If this is to be a condition of the quiz, then how can it possibly be enforced?
I'll refrain from asking another question (in a new thread) until this matter is resolved. Perhaps some rules need to be laid down.
