Actually, how do people feel about a Pratchett-specific day? I've checked the database and there are nearly 500 questions on the topic, so definitely viable.

And what about other custom categories to mix it up a bit? A cursory search of the database shows the following would be viable:

Sci-fi movies and/or books
Red Dwarf
HP Lovecraft
Videogames (although from memory when we've tried before that it was heavily weighted towards obscure console titles)

If you want me to check out a custom topic and see if it's viable just put it up here.

This may be heresy, but...

I'm not really a fan of Pratchett's books. 8-[

Red Dwarf I could get behind, though.

Yeah, obviously I wouldn't want to put up a category that not everyone doesn't have at least some familiarity with.

Another vote for RD :)

But one on a book I haven't read. I consider myself a Pratchett lover but I suddenly realised, quite recently, that I havent read a ton of his books!

I started when he started publishing, buying all his books , standing in queues to get them signed but then just stopped.

So, the good news is that despite his untimely passing I still have a lot of his books to enjoy :)

I don't know much about Red Dwarf, having only seen a few episodes when I was a teenager.

HP Lovecraft I've never read and know nothing about other than he was a complete Edwin.

Fair enough. I think I'm going to have a go at fashioning a general sci-fi round, which will feature stuff like RD and Dr Who etc in its pool of questions, and see how it goes. Let's be honest, I think it's going to be something we have a better standard of knowledge of than the crochet and MTG-focused hobbies round.

BOLLOCKS. Knew I'd got the last question today wrong as soon as loading the next page gave me time to think - there was another, more appropriate option on there :evil:

Damn, caught out by failing to spot the all important word 'not' in the question. Not the first time, either :oops:

As the only one not to miss a day (and even if you did) I suspect that your crown remains unassailable Alan :lol:

I'm annoyed at the fact I've managed to miss the equivalent of a week's worth of quiz days. Almost makes a man want to quit drinking. Almost.

Think that might be a record on my time today! I tried earlier but it was non-responsive, but apparently it started the timer for when I came back later.
