[DAILY QUESTIONS] Give clues for the Dailys
« on: August 01, 07:33 AM »
I didnt see a thread for this already, so i decided to start one.


anyway. i got the first one for today (Winning team at DOTA 2 international) but there is a linked daily that doesnt seem to be working.... or maybe im confused as to what number its asking for.


has anyone been able to get it?


2 seconds after i posted this, the daily question changed, i got it.

Are they only up for a limited time, because I'm not seeing anything for today???

Some updates have been missed the past couple days hence the blanks. Sometimes, it will also be a linked daily. You must've answered a previous associated daily (ie Part A -> Part B) to see it, otherwise, the daily will appear blank.

CHECK IT! IT'S THERE! (as of PM, not AM). More questions are set for 2AM as well, so we're BACK ON A ROLL.

Questions can go up at either 2am or 2pm PST, so there CAN be some variance. Most questions run for 24 hours, however.

Answering in the first 12 hours earns an A grade and full points for the question. Answering in the next 4 hours is B, then C, then D. Anything after 24 hours for questions that are scheduled to last longer receives an F and minimal points. However, ALL questions answered in daily format will earn equal or more points to their quiz counterparts once the questions are added in (a future consideration, not SUPER relevant right now).

Is it a bad thing that I knew the answer to the Xtreme Beach Volleyball Daily question without having to look it up? ;)

Just so there's no confusion, the question regarding the grandfather of modern day shooters has no punctuation marks. Its follow-up question pertaining to the first platform it ran on does have punctuation.

It's a VERY bad and sad thing. However, you're also not alone with that statement though. DOAXVB Lore is amazing.

Yeah, the "first word is necessary" is a red herring. It's a one word answer. Edit: Rather, I've only seen it referenced as one word, unless people were entering "xxxxx swimsuit". There are lists of the swimsuits out there.

There needs to be a better way to tell when a question is new. I can't tell which ones are new and which ones I've answered anymore from the color. I almost missed the two follow on questions because of it.

I haven't had any issues with figuring out which questions are new, try taking a look on the right hand side of the question.
If it doesn't show a score/10 then you haven't done it yet.

 AFAIK the questions are bright green once they've been completed too.

No the questions change color with the number of points you have - bright green if it's a 10/10, different colors for the other values. Puke Green, Yellow, Orange and Magenta - they line up with the scoring by time. The questions were I think magenta on black or something when they weren't answered. 

And that's what made it hard to see because they're all so colorful. But I never noticed the /10 thing, thanks.

Oh you're right, forgot that they're different colours depending on the score.
No problem, glad I could help.

1st question relates to a mass produced timekeeping device that was the standard bearer for timekeeping until the atomic clock was invented. Seiko made the first wristwatch of its kind in 1969.

Two words.

THe second word of the first one is a bit hard, but it's the thing you hang on the wall.

There are way too many options for that answer.

New dailies will be live at 2pm PST today (around four hours from the time of this posting). Their end time will be the new live time for dailies from now on, 5am PST where any conflicts exist, then 5am/pm PST from that point moving forward. That change should make for more equal answering opportunities across all NA time zones in the first 12 hours of life.

Awesome, that works out well for me too.

1st question: Pretty self explanatory - 1 word
2nd question: It's a secret room! - 5 words
3rd question: 2 words (there aren't that many 3rd party titles to guess through anyway)

Chris Houlihan question: spell out OK in full as in 'okay'.
Mario game: it seems if you get the question right, the question wont turn green. Just check in the list below if its there.
2004: I wonder if its possible to have a flood in space.

I was so stumped that I was not getting the Mario question. I was trying over and over so thanks for the heads up on checking the list. I was correct after all!
