I think 300 plus is way to many questions for one topic. After awhile, you start getting bored.

I understand what you are saying maralyn but how would you decide the criteria for allowing or declining facts.

rodbox, I guess it would have to be an arbitrary decision by you and informing everyone in the "how to contribute" section that only X amount of questions are allowed in each category. I've recently been doing "land borders" and there are, I believe, 536 questions. As I said, I think 200 would probably be the best. This is not a school, it's a game. Having said that, I have to tell you it's a great game and I tell everyone about it.

Maralyn I think the more qs the better....

the amount of time the regular players spend playing facts is quite alot to be doing qs over and over again i think it would become tiresome and boring...

and besides that not everyone plays all the subjects that are posted...

just my thoughts...

Maralyn just in the specific case of land borders, they are 197 countries in the world, all sizes available, e.g. China and Russia borders with 14 countries each one, so the subject must get very extensive. It is a big world

Czza/Susana, I just finished playing land borders and I thought 560 plus questions were too much. I would rather see more categories to make it more interesting. This is, after all, just a game and by the time I finished with land borders I was aching for something else. But, then again, that's what makes the world go round, no pun intended. It's good we all have our opinions.

I disagree with you Maralyn. Land borders for instance: which countries would you eliminate? If you're bored move on to another subject.

Another point: it should be FEWER questions or a SMALLER number of questions, not LESS questions (just to be grammatically correct).

But here's what really gets me: I played all 500 and some land borders, but look, I only have 146 facts. That's because I am NOT DOC1386, but only STUCK in here and cannot get out !! HELP!!

It pleases me, cazza, that you think I'm funny. I often think I'm far too serious.

Cazz agree with you on 1,200% the more intelligent the dryer your humour becomes, and sure Sag is one of that people. Smiling also (following the leader)

Doc, it's your right to disagree with me about how many questions a topic should have, however, I don't see that it's necessary to correct my grammar or anyone else's, for that matter. This is a game and nobody made you teacher.

But it is our beautiful language and it should be used correctly.
You are correct that I am not the teacher -- I am the Professor! I got a raise last semester.

For you Susana, I always make a special exception. After all, English is not your first language. Anyone who is using a language other than the language of their mother (idioma de madre) must be cut some slack.
But for Maralyn or anyone else who may be offended by such correction, it is not intended as a personal attack. It is only constructive criticism.
As for you, mi amiga, you write beautiful English. Already I have heard two of the best metaphors that I have ever heard. Gracias como usualmente.

I, for one, believe that the language is too often misused and corrections which are made are always a good thing. I am so appalled at the degradation of the language used by people who should know better, for example newscasters, that I start to scream at the TV for them to correct themselves. I may seem petty but I abhor the misuse of the language and I agree with DOC and Sag. No offense is meant toward Maralyn, I just would like to see the demise of correct English delayed for as long as possible. And, yes, I was an English major in college. Susana, your first language is not English so you are excused!

Teabag, you better believe it. I can't even have my own opinion without everyone coming down on me. As to my grammar, I gues we al mak mistaks.

Teabag, I was not an English major but I did fairly well in business so I am over being insulted. It's just a game and people have to know when not to speak.

Maralyn, I am not attacking you or your worth....I am only expressing a general opinion, too. Let's all drop it so you can use your time for better pursuits such as finding that dog you want! Case closed?

The case has been closed now for some time. I've communicated directly with the offended party and all is patched up. There is no need to have the last word by anybody else. Case closed.

Except for the fact that the bad grammar has yet to be corrected in the topic heading.
