    Default OOTS Quiz part XV

    This is the 15th edition of the OotS quiz game.

    Link to the 14th edition.

    Quiz originally started by Hilbert, rules originally drafted by Forbiddenwar, and extended by various contributors.
    Hello everyone!

    I just had the idea of starting an oots quiz. There are hundreds -- alas, even thousands! -- of little interesting and/or funny details in the comics which you sometimes do not notice unless someone is poking your nose onto it. (: poke thog's what?)

    The rules are plain simple. Someone asks a question that can be answered with (one or more) oots comic strips. (However, try to avoid boring counting questions...) Then people can try to answer it which should always include a link to the strip where you can see the answer. (Please do not write something like "Ah, that's A, you can see it somewhere between OOTS141 and OOTS200. Or maybe it was also a bit later, can't remember right now, but it's definately A.")
    If still no one has a clue after after -say- 24 hours (maybe earlier) hints can be given. Whoever first gives the correct answer can ask the next question.

    OK, 'nuff said, let's get it started! (: YAY!)

    Oh, btw... it would be nice if people edited the link to the correct strip right next to the question once it has been answered. (Not the answer itself, just where you find it.)

    Rules

    1) The first player to answer a question correctly, asks the next one.

    2) If that player doesn't have a question immediately in mind, then state "Open Question" ("OQ") and let someone else ask.

    3) Questions have to have an answer that is demonstrated by at least one, and no more than three, canon online strip. (No bonus material either online or in the books)

    4) No counting questions with more than 3 parts. For example: how many times has Roy said "the".

    5) If the answer given is not the answer expected, but still technically answers the question, allow it. You can rephrase and ask your question again later.

    6) there's a difference between rephrase - find a different, more precise way to word the question so it has a smaller number of possible answers - and just simply rewrite and rule out the last answer. Over and over again.

    7) If an answer is given that in no way is correct, then players can call attention to the fact. At that point, there may be 2 questions occurring at the same time. The 1st question that was incorrectly answered is the valid question. The second question may be answered, but for no prize (aka asking the next question).

    8) If your response is ninja'd, that is if someone beats you with the correct answer, please edit your post stating, "ninja'd, please answer above question".

    9) After 24 hours without an answer, please provide a hint. After an additional 24 hours pass, please provide the answer and take pride that you have stumped us all.

    10) Recognize that this is a game. It is supposed to be quick and fun. If a question seems to go beyond the rules, assume that the author is not familiar with the rules, and point them out. If the author affirms that the question is allowable within the rules, then continue with the game. If the question turns out to be not allowable, it becomes an open question. Groan and move on.

    11) Questions along the lines of "when was the first time X happened/was mentioned" are not allowed because to prove that they never happened before, one would have to link to every strip before it, which is unreasonable and would break the no-more-than-three-strips rule.
    And here is our current question:

    Looks like poor Haley found it first.

    On a related note, what was one of the Dark Mistress Shadowgale's favorite bands?

    I think this answers the hickey question.

    The secret is probably to think of questions beforehand, and keep them handy. But I'm better at suggesting ideas than actually doing them.

    Or think of a question first, and then press the Reply button, and look at the last post below the edit box to see if you got ninja'd. You can still get ninja'd while you are writing the answer though.

    Still OQ.

    Almost anything is scarier than nutmeg. But parsley might be. A good loofa and lavender bath gel are also right in there somewhere.
