Re: 2016 HSNCT discussion

Could you post the tossup on Mexico? Because I remember re-reading the last sentence a few times and every time I read it it seemed like there were a few words missing from the last sentence.

Why you should vote for Caleb: He's pretty good at quizbowl I guess

Why you shouldn't vote for Caleb: He has objectively bad taste in musicals

Re: Question-specific discussion: 2016 DII ICT

Can someone post the Intentional walks tossup? It seems kind of harsh not to prompt on walks, considering the exact number in the Barry Bonds clue is the only thing I can remember that explicitly refers to intentional walks but not also regular walks.

Re: Specific question discussion

The "Lost Tribes of Israel settling in America" tossup is a godawful idea for a tossup. But like at the very least you need to drastically expand the number of things accepted in the answerline, my teammate Finn buzzed really early and gave the completely right answer of the "Nephites being from Am...

Re: ACF Regionals 2016 Individual Question Discussion

I thought it was sort of weird that two bonuses in the same packet had "witches" as their easy part.

What were the conversion statistics for the TU over Nicholas Nickleby?

Re: 2015 HSNCT discussion

Can I see the TU over transgender people? I negged it with transsexual so I'd like to see it again to figure out what made my answer wrong. Also, can I see the Melee bonus round because I love that game? Transsexual and Transgender mean different things in the sense that gender and sex are differen...

Re: 2015 HSNCT discussion

I think the tossup about Okonkwo mentioned Obierika by by name in the first clue, which was way too early. I wrote this tossup after reading the novel; I'm not sure if I agree with you. Obierika is, like, the eighth most prominent character in the novel? I'm not sure how you could know his name unl...

Re: 2015 NAQT HSNCT: Congratulations Arcadia!

For whatever it's worth, I answered Hunchback of Notre Dame for Quasimodo in one of the scrimmages and the moderator said the answerline didn't say anything about prompting on that.

Re: Specific Question Discussion

I think that the 1666 question dropped Christopher Wren/St. Pauls too early, because I thought that St. Pauls being rebuilt after the fire was a fairly well known thing about the Great Fire. Maybe should have been switched with Annus Mirabilis?

Re: So Panasonic is back...

If I remember correctly, the Maine coach learned about the tournament relatively late, so she had to just pick four people without time for tryouts or something like that. Team Oklahoma was one from Edmond Memorial, two from Edmond Santa Fe, one from Choctaw High School, and one from Oklahoma School...
