    Is the deadline still noon on Tuesday? I'm presuming that you just miss changing the date above.

    just over 10 hours till poll closes.

    FYI: The Q4 question was changed and is not the same as in Leg8, but I didn't completely delete the description from last week. Surprised nobody noticed this till now.

    If anyone wants to change their vote, log back in and answer just that question without any penalty.

    Had to check...yes, I think I read that question right and didn't take the time to read the description. :)

    I didn't notice the mismatch until I went back to print the questions/answers. Initially I read it and noticed the question was different then from L8a, but like you I didn't read the scoring description.

    Hey Danny,

    I logged back in to review question four. Decided to go with my initial answers so I didn't resubmit anything.

    Danny, I screwed up and used my real name instead of mwgiii on my answer page.

    Do I need to do anything to correct it?

    With your quest to be the worse player, I would have though you would want the opportunity to start out at the bottom of the list AND get non-response penalties for your normal entry username.

    hehe... figured it out on my own. No worries. You aren't the first one to do it.

    Posting preliminary data above. Please check for any omissions, errors.

    How come 8b is listed by the times it took us to answer? And not by our day total?

    Its just in the state I last left it in.

    I can't grade the response bonus until I had the Leg 8 scores complete, and keeping it in time order is most convenient for that.

    I'll be watching the show tonight (didn't have time last night) and will have scoring up afterwards in a more final form.

    I seem to be doing better. Had I not missed a whole week, I might be in the lead now, or closer anyway. :D

    :lol: That way I could be a double winner.

    I was actually doing pretty well (this time) until I missed a week while I was on vacation.

    How did you determin who opened the roadblock clue Danny? I can see Kelly since we see her holding the clue and reaching to pull the strip, but we don't actually SEE her open it. Same goes for Alex. He holds the curled up strip, but we don't actually SEE him open it. The other two just show the team member reading it. We don't even get a clue as to who might have opened it. We saw last week that Ron opened it, but Kelly immediately grabbed it and read it. I would have though the correct answer for at least R/A and M/G would be neither since it wasn't shown.
