    For question 5, if we enter more than one caption, do they both go to poll, and do we get the combined points for both captions?

    Also, are all captions being polled together, or is it seperate polls for each pic?

    If you enter two captions, they will both go in the poll. It will be a multiple choice poll, so both can receive votes, but you will get points for your highest scoring one only.

    All captions will be polled together - as it is multichoice, anything worth a vote should get one.

    I have put up the final two questions in this round.

    As I will not be around, db1986 has agreed to take over the Dux competition so please PM your answers to db1986. I have forwarded the answers submitted so far for Science to him, and also the details of what I had planned for the Music, Humanities/Arts and Maths rounds. Enjoy.

    Just to let you all know, Saff has decided to take an extended break from the forum. She has not told me why she is having this break, but I wish her all the best for whatever she is planning to do.

    One of the reasons I have decided to take over the running of the Dux is because I do not want Saff's excellent planning to go to waste. I haven't had a chance to look at what Saff has sent to me yet, but please all keep your faith in what Saff has prepared for me to continue, I'm sure she has done a fantastic job.

    Let the competition continue! :)

    Just a quick reminder that Question 7 is due today if you would like to have a bonus point :)

    Another reminder to say that the Science round will be closing shortly on 15 June.
    Unless I have sent you a PM discussing your progress, you still need to enter nearly all the questions.
    Please also let me know if you wish to use any bonus points for use in this round.

    Queries about Question 8: I will be accepting any depiction of Cara that is possible.

    Is there still going to be a poll or something for the fantastic contraption entries?

    I'd quite like a spy at what other people did :twisted:

    Oh good point. I forgot about that one, thanks NH :)
    I will organise a poll for that shortly.

    I think you'll only be spying on one person if only two people have completed all the levels :rolleyes:

    * storm pouts. :cry:
  14. db1986

    db1986 Super Moderator

    4 people have completed all 21 levels :)

    Because Saff scored the contraptions part, I've had to change the efficiency thing slightly.
    I have an idea for a poll and I have PM'ed the winners separately so that they don't know who else has completed all 21 levels.
    Hopefully the poll will be up later today/tonight. If not, then tomorrow :)

    lol why the face?

    and I heard about your idea for the poll... should be tough decision for people entering and people voting :eek:
  18. db1986

    db1986 Super Moderator

    Yeah, I wasn't entirely sure what to do. If I polled all of the designs it would take ages, and there would be lots of polls to make.
    Hopefully people can choose their favourites. I know it is not an easy task, but it's the best idea I could think of that wouldn't be too time-consuming :)
