Lack of Participation
« on: March 15, 2009, 07:32:59 PM »
Well, I suppose there are a lot of other things people could be doing other then enter this contest.

It takes a lot of time to watch the shows, create the questions, grade the answers, and do the things it takes to run the contest, if its a few people that enter, or a thousand, the work is about the same.

This week, so far, we have had less then 10 entries.  I going to do this one more week, and if things don't pick up considerably, I'm going to use my Monday nights for something else.

 We still have not had the first show of this season  ::) ::) ::)

  I would say, do what you have to do.

  Seems a lot of people are turned off this season  ::) ::) ::)
All truth passes through three stages:

   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

Jeff,  I have not even seen one of the shows this season.  No time this year, I am lucky to get on here for a while. :(  I enjoyed last years contest though. 8)

I don't have time to watch the show- I am usually asleep just as it starts, or fall asleep during it.  Last year they had each show on several times, and different times of day, but I don't see it on as often this year.

  Well I would play but I have never seen the show and it does not come in on my 3 channels.  Thats the problem of living way back in the woods.  Why at my house when the radio says "At the tone it will be 8.00 am" it is 5 after at my place.

Does that mean you have extra time or do you lose some time?

Sounds like by the time 8:00 gets there you can have an extra 5 minutes to get things done.

I would play if I had a TV.

I don't have satellite or cable here. But, I appreciate you putting together a contest once in awhile even if I don't or can't join in. I have participated in a few contests in the past, so I let some new blood have a crack at it. I don't need nothing anyway. ;D

  Time has no meaning here.  It is either day time or night time.  I eat when the sun comes up and when it is right over head and when it sits.  I work in between these events and go to Church on Sunday.

I'd play along but I can't seem to find the contest link. It must be right under my nose... I didn't play every week last season because here I am in my 40's with a more-than-full-time job and still trying to finish my degree too. I don't get much sleep.

Thanks. And I just found it and can't understand how I missed it. Apparently it WAS right under my nose.  :-[

Only place that I can watch the show is my computer at work. They don't put the episodes on in a timely manner so i can play. At least the first one was on line.
