    Novembers' Quiz- what do YOU want the topic to be?

    Post  macrocephale on Tue Oct 09, 2012 11:53 pm

    Well, I'll be taking over quizmaster duties for a little while (I suspect a conspiracy to stop me winning but I enjoyed hosting them more anyway), and to keep people interested I'm going to let everyone decide the topic of the quiz! I've posted the same question on Facebook, and the results of the two polls shall determine what Novembers' quiz will be based on!

    As the vote is on Facebook as well, try not to vote for the same thing twice, vote for your favourite two of the three!

    I vote the fish - might get the chance to collect them next year in the summer, so even if I don't get a point it would be interesting.

    Ooh I was hoping a vote or two would come up for them- I did my Vertebrate palaeontology essay on them last year Smile Nothing like a good old Antiarch! geek

    Ahh sorry I forgot about that, I'll try to get the scanner working in the morning- when I'm more sober!

    It's currently Hadrosaurs: 0, Cats: 2, Placoderms: 2 on Facebook btw! (try not to vote for the same category twice people)

    Between the poll on Facebook and here, it's currently:
    Hadrosaurs - 1
    Sabre-Tooth Cats - 5
    Placoderms - 5
    You have one day left to vote for your favourite, and then I'll start writing the questions for next weeks' quiz! If it's still a tie I'll either discount my votes, or write questions on both! Make your vote count!

    They're the armoured fish which were very prevalent during the late Silurian and Devonian periods, and included fish 20cm long to giants like Dunkleosteus. That's as much as I'll say
