I know a lot of quizzoners enjoyed the family fortunes thing we did, but I think it fell down on the live aspect and with the limited scope for players. It's a shame to let it go altogether though.

How about trying it out using Private Messages? Like before, you PM your solutions for each question (this was the survey), but instead of having a further round, these solutions are also your entry. You score according to how many people send similar answers, so you have to think about that. Everyone has the same chance.

So lets have a go then. PM me your suggestions for the following 10 questions. Winner in a week, who will then set the next one.

1 Name something that flies.
2 Name something you might accidentally cut yourself with.
3 What creature are the most people scared of?
4 What is the most unpopular subject at school?
5 Name a football team that most people dislike.
6 Name a sport that doesn't use a ball.
7 Which feature of the body which both men and women have would most like to improve or alter?
8 Name a mainland European country.
9 What is the most popular alcoholic spirit among British women?
10 How long in minutes (for the purpose of the solution, I will allow 5 minutes either way) does it take the average person to get out of bed after the alarm has gone off?

I was obviously mistaken. From the (zero) response, it has died, it is the proverbial parrot. Forget that one then. :cry:

Hang on in there! tim.666 has had a go, and suggests the slow response is due to holidays or the weather! :)

I'll keep it open then. Plus I'll send a few PMs in case people haven't noticed the posting. 8)

Because I start back to work on Sunday, and its unlikely I'll be able to get to the forum for more than the odd couple of minutes in the following week, I'll close this on Saturday. If there's anybody that's missed out, they can always join the next one.

I will also publish some tables that you can cut and paste which make it simple to collate the responses and work out who has won!

Okay everyone, the result.

tim.666 has won! :D

Well done. You will see from below that it was a close run thing. Zevon had the same score, but tim goes through as he had more top answers.

Over to you, tim! :D

These are the tables I used to make working out the winner simpler. See the ones I used with the data filled in after them for how to use them. I think they help, but of course you could just do it your own way! :)

You may not have a use for the last one. It depends if you have a question like my number 10.
I think if you look at how things are entered, its pretty much self explanatory.

Cool 8)

Okay, your qs...

1 What is the most boring series on television?
2 Name a part of the body that grows.
3 Who is the best prime minister since 1945?
4 What is the most popular colour in Britain for a car?
5 Name a country considered a danger to world peace.
6 Which is the busiest motorway in England?
7 Name an English coastal resort popular with old people.
8 What is the most popular chocolate covered bar?
9 Name an item of clothing with sleeves.
10 What is the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning?

REMEMBER! You need to consider what all people may answer, not just put your own opinions down. :wink:

PM answers please. :D

Can't show full results without that 'Click Here...' message. Does anyone know the maximum size before this rather annoying thing kicks in?
