This is a thought I had, (I do have some occasionally).  With so many items in some categories I think a bit of information , even just a word, about the corrrect answer, would be very good.  What do other players think about this?  I am saying for the info to appear AFTER we have answered, not before. This would be very helpful in giving some insight into the answer and would prevent facts being added without the editors having to do so much checking.  What do you think?

What? How can it help if it comes after you answer. We already have that - the extra info. If you mean before you answer then I can't see how that would work nor can I see it being helpful to have extra stuff to read. I really can't visualise what it is you are suggesting.

I a saying that after you answer it is helpful to have a bit of information to remember ther answers.  For example, in Gangsters.....how can you possibly remember all those anonymous people without a signal going off in your brain to help you make a connection.  I speciffically avoided asking for information which would help give the answers away.   I just think every answer should have a bit of information.  I'll help in areas I have knowledge about.  If I don't know the topic I can't be of much help. In the future the person adding facts should be required to add the info.

I can't add it if I don't know it.  I know nothing about rock music, for example.  An example of simple but good information is when the answer is NZ and it says North Island.  That just helps.  Does that make sense?  I'm just trying to be helpful. I think that rather than add 500 facts with no info at all it would be better to add 400 with a word or two.

Yes I see that but the ability to do that already exists so not sure what you want done.

I would make a strong suggestion, a very strong suggestion, that people submit their new topics with at least a bit of information.  People can also be encouraged more to add info if they know some on currently listed topics.  I really do think it is important or I wouldn't have mentioned it.

Where I think a subject could benefit from extra info I usually ask for it.

If I see any questions where I can add info, I will.  I hope other people do the same.

OK.  I willl be glad to add any info if I have it.  I have several topics I am thinking about doing but to be honest with you, I have such a disaster here with the flood we have it is hard to feel like doing much.  I have the ideas, at least.  I just want my house repaired. This is no fun.
