At the behest of Ezlo's Apprentice, I'll provide a summed up version of the details regarding this tweaked version of the three popular game threads, "Who Am I?", "Zelda Quotes", and "Zelda Quiz".
All rules are the same except that everyone can only post a question/quote/who am I once every five turns at least.
Anyone and everyone can still participate openly in trying to guess the answer. If you get one right, but it hasn't been five turns since you last posted yourself, you must choose someone else to post a question, and it must be someone who hasn't gone for at least five prior turns as well. If you've gone ten or more turns, you may choose to request to go next and after the current turn is over regardless of who gets it right, you may go next. Person who gets it right still gets the "points" as it were for getting it right of course.
This doesn't completely guarantee that whoever gets one right will go next given the circumstances, but it will make it possible for those who have a hard time getting a turn to have one.
Anyway, that's the summed up version. For full details, read on.END UPDATE.
This is a tweaked version of the "Who Am I?", "Zelda Quiz", and "Zelda Quotes" threads all rolled into one, but with a bit of a twist. When it's your turn, you can pose one of any of the three game questions. Same rules apply for all except one. Whoever gets a "Who Am I?", "Zelda Quiz", or "Zelda Quotes" right still goes next. However, that person can't go again until at least 5 other people go afterwards in posing a question/quote/who am I. And if the same person gets one right and it hasn't been 5 other people since that person's last turn, he/she will get the "points" for guessing right, but must choose someone else to pose the next "Who Am I?", "Zelda Quiz", or "Zelda Quotes", and it CAN'T be someone who has gone within 5 turns.
If you wish to have a turn, but haven't gone at all for at least the last 10 turns, then you may request a turn in the thread by simply asking and you may go after the current turn at the time is finished. First come, first serve on this one. So if someone who asks to go next fits under this prerequisite of not having gone in the last 10 turns, that person goes before you do, and you must fit that prerequisite too as well. Once you've gone, you must join the others in the "must wait at least five turns" to qualify to go again.
I made this for those who aren't so intimately knowledgable in all the Zelda games and want to have a chance to participate a bit more often while keeping things relatively fair. I don't mean this to replace the existing "Who Am I?", "Zelda Quiz", and "Zelda Quotes" threads. But rather for those who have a hard time getting a turn because someone always beats you to it. I admit, I fall under this category, which is what motivated me to (re)create this game. If you don't want to wait to participate again, then just use the existing seperate threads to have your turn as often as you like. But this one was made so everyone gets a turn more often, whether or not they are knowledgable in Zelda.
One more thing, whoever is up in posting a question has 24 hours to pose his/her question or quote or whatever. If you don't go within a day, then someone else can go instead, again as long as that person hasn't gone within five prior turns. If the person who has gone longer than 24 hours shows up at that point wanting his/her turn, then he/she must wait til the current turn is finished to go next. This should be fair since there are some who aren't always online and sometimes may suddenly NOT be online for a while. So the wait time between turns should never have to be more than one whole day.
On the other hand, if it is your turn and you've posted your question, it's your responsibility to check back within 24 hours to see if anyone got it right. If you don't, then you forfeit your turn and someone else can go next and you must wait another five turns to go again. If you find yourself having to be gone all of a sudden for longer than a day during your turn, then try to let everyone else know so someone else can go next.
I hope y'all can see where I'm trying to come from. Anyway, I'll go ahead and kick things off. And of course, I won't be able to go again for at least another five turns. And one more thing, these three games are pretty popular so I encourage everyone to keep using the existing threads for each of those games. But if you want an extra chance to carry the torch, then this version is for you. Personally, I''ll probably just play here for the reason I made this thread, to be able to participate more frequently. Anyway, like Wario would say, "Here I go!"
This is just me, but I think it best to just put which type of question you're using such as what follows.Zelda Quote:Zelda Question:
orWho Am I?
But that's entirely up to you. We'll know which one it is as soon as it's read. It's just for convenience. Anyway.
This one should be easy.
Hee hee hee! Bye!
PS: By the way, as I said, it's not my intention to take anything away from the existing threads. But if everyone likes this idea that y'all would prefer to just consolidate and play the games solely in one thread, then that would be fine. It would certainly be more lively as a result and more mixed up. But that's up to the majority of everyone who plays these games. It's up to you.
