Re: STACKS - Call for Editors (Nats Level, 2020-21)

I would like to second Vishal's statement - please don't put me on the "permanent writers" list until you can get actual editors on board and also prove that you or others you bring on board can manage this set well.

Re: Studying Science

I mean I myself have only been to 1 HS tournament but my recommendation for getting science is 1) reading textbooks/packets to understand the high school science canon a little better and 2) if your parents are scientifically based, they likely have access to newsletters/journals which can have a tr...

Re: Preseason Poll 2019-2020

Just curious on what people's thoughts on the new Yale team are, because even though they are losing all of their A team from last year, they do get both Fred and Daniel who are both extremely good players (at HS difficulty, at least)

Re: Preseason Discussion

James Clemens With the graduation of Sharath Narayan, the James Clemens quizbowl team has fallen off the radar, however I think this year's team could make an insane run. The entire Liberty MS squad that went 4th at the 2019 MSNCT all join James Clemens this year. Expect Ethan Xu (History), Yuti Da...

Re: Literature "Progression"

Also, if you are willing to cash in some money, NAQT's frequency list for literature is a decently complete list of books and their authors. I do not believe there to be plot summaries in the lists though.

Re: Preseason Discussion

I would definitely like to agree with the strength of Stanford Online A, as they retain their entire roster from last year. They did have a somewhat disappointing finish last year but with such a young roster they can probably do quite well for years to come.

Re: Running Club Meetings

At Smith last year, we generally set up a cycle of players and subbed people in and out every 8 questions with everyone not in usually on protobowl.

Usually, when we’re short on time, we shout buzz or slap the tables.

QEMS2 Appears to be down

I'm a high schooler who is interested in using QEMS2 as a method of possibly writing small housewrite packets. However, after I created an account on QEMS2, it redirected me to verify my account, and when I attempted to connect to the "accounts" page, it doesn't appear to work and the domain cannot ...

I would also like to add a few points of consideration to this conversation as I am one of the rising freshmen from Smith Middle School. I do not know much about the current High School situation but I would like to add a few points. 1. Playing with BMB myself in the past, he is an incredibly talent...
