    The first quiz not to be made by me (and the first I'm gonna enter!).
    Well done to Blisterman for the questions.


    The point of the game is pretty simple. In a PM to me, answer each of the 10 questions below.


    Try to think of the most popular answer.


    If you need to comment or clarify a question then do it in thread please. And if you could reply once you've sent a PM it'd keep the thread alive Thanks!



    Write your answers like this...

    Do not repeat the questions, no full-stops at the end of answers, no spaces between lines, no comments, no fancy list coding. Thanks.



    JUST LIKE THIS:

    1. Dr Maria O' Brien
    2. Kathy Wells
    3. XXXX

    Those who don't reply like this will be ignored.


    The game will end when we have 40 entrants or after 5 days, whichever comes first.


    Please, no full-stops after the answers and put a space in between the 1. and the answer ok?



    1. Name a well known Fashion Designer
    2. Name a well known Baseball Player
    3. Name a well known Doctor

    Does it matter if my physicist is really an astrophysicist???

    I'm in like Jim
    Thanks!


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 10,911 Mod ✭✭✭✭Ponster


    Then why was the format 1 - etc in the question??

    Because Blisterman made the questions and didn't know that the tool used to correct the answers doesn't accept "1 - xxx" format answers.
