Post ~* Swapnote Trivia League *~

S.T.L Season 6 has now finished!

to finish as high up the League Table as they can.

Step 2: I will then send you a Trivia Question via Swapnote to determine your League place.

Nickname: Paul
S.T.L
Friend Code: 3952 - 7691 - 5972

* League Rules/ How To Play *
-----------------------------------

Questions:

* Solo League:
- 7 questions
per season.
- Each question made up of 2 to 3 separate parts.
- 2 Points for correct answer,
- 1 Point
for a close answer.

Answers:

Solo League:
- Please submit answers via the reply button above the question
- Reply only to me. Make sure to deselect everyone else
- Answers will be sent to you as soon as I receive your reply.
- Answers are only sent to those who attempt to answer the question(s)
- All answers, for any question, are valid so long as I receive them
before the end of the current season.


Achievement Badges

- Players receive achievement badges for fulfilling certain criteria.
- Some are permanent, others require players/Teams to maintain performance to retain them.
- A letter will be sent to any player(s) who receives an achievement notifying them of their success.
- Achievements carry a Score which helps determine ranking when players Total Score is tied


What Happens When the Scores are Tied?

* If the Total Score is tied then ranking is determined by:

1) Achievement Score (Ach.) - The sum of the total value of a players combined achievement badges.
2) Responder Score (Res.) - The total number of questions answered on the day the question was sent.
3) H.R.T Score (Hrt.) - The players highest running total over 3 consecutive questions.
4) Tie-Break Score (Tbs.) - The players total from the end-of-season tie-break question.
5) Stalemate: If the scores are still tied, then both players will be given equal position.


Good Luck!

Hi Hosea,

Sorry I misread your earlier question. The points aren't for anything in particular. It's just a bit of friendly competition and another reason to check your Swapnote/Letter Box everyday and participate with others.

I agree that perhaps it would be amazing to have some prizes to give out as an incentive but that would be rather expensive for me, although if I do win the Lottery...oh man, i'd give out games and eShop cards etc to the winners. It'd be awesome =)

Hi Dex,

The Trivia will be purely gaming related and will be comprised of written questions, picture clues and sound clips. A good portion of it will be Nintendo focused but questions may be about anything gaming related, from any period/era.

Questions may also have multiple-parts to them sometimes or they could be trick-questions etc. I will try to keep it open ended and as fresh as possible.

I've added everyone so far, make sure to add me back if you haven't done so already:

Hi there,

I will be keeping track of everyone's points in a database on my computer. On Tuesday, I will tally up everyone's scores, enter them into the database and send a message to everyone in that particular League. The message will contain the current standings, showing the participants names and current points.

I will also include a shortened link to the first post in this thread, allowing people to view a clearer, more detailed league table online.

Hope this helps

~P~

- btw: You are now confirmed as a friend on my friend list. =)

Hi Players,

It's been roughly 24hrs since the first question was sent out so I thought i'd update you on the levels of response thus far:

League 1 Questions: 9 replies
League 2 Questions: 17 replies

Looks like the people in League 1 need to get a move on and send in some answers in time for the second question on Saturday. =)

Hi Bella,

The deadline for all answers is Tuesday, February 21st

Only the people who have sent in their answers will receive the real answers back so if you haven't replied to a question then you won't get the answer for it.

This way, players can take up to 3 weeks to send in their answers and people who join up during the season, are also able to have a go at all the questions so long as they get their answers in by Tuesday, February 21st

*thanks for your question, I will add details concerning deadlines to the main page shortly*

Hi Victoria,

People are free to join whenever they like. As long as players get their answers in by the end of the season on February 21st then their answers for any of the 2 questions released thus far, and the 4 remaining ones, will still be valid. Just leave your Nickname and Friend code here or send me a message and i'll add you to my Friend List. Here are my details:

Nickname: Paul
Friend Code: 3952 - 7691 - 5972

Once we are confirmed as friends, I will send you out an 'Info Message' explaining a few things about how the league works. I will then rush you the first 2 questions and add you to the League Table.

In the meantime, why not go to the first post in the thread Click Here and learn more. =)

Thank you for your interest.

Hey Paul,

Random question...

Do Leagues 1 & 2 get the same set of Questions?

Hi Binky,

League 1 and League 2 get different questions although they are usually based on the same theme. e.g - both got a sound clip question on Pokemon for question 1, but those in League 1 were given a more obscure Pokemon to identify.

Hi Serpestril,

We are now friends. I've sent you the info pack and the first 3 questions (which are made up of 3 parts each) I look forward to your answers.

* For those who were unaware, Question 3 was sent out nearly 24hrs ago.
* Updated League Tables will be sent via Swapnote this Friday (6pm u.k time)

Paul,

Should you perhaps revise your system for sending out answers...

What if 2 people are friends, and one tells the other the right answers before the 2nd person has submitted their answers to you? (if that makes sense). This scenario could encourage cheating.

Only kids will do this, it's not a test to fear failing, it's just for fun.

Hi Bella/Gamerfan,

The current system encourages increased participation through more immediate rewards and an acceptance of new players during the season, who may otherwise be deterred by having to wait a few weeks before being allowed to play.

My main focus for this season was to increase the number of players and to refine the rules and overall structure of the league to ensure a dedicated user base and to decide upon a system that worked.

Getting input from players is an important part of this and Bella makes a good point. One avenue of cheating, researching answers on the internet, is almost impossible to stamp out (sure i've tried by putting anagrams, hidden pictures and sound clips into the questions) but other things, such as when to release 'answers' is something I can control.

As Gamerfan says, it's just for fun, and not being a wealthy man =) there is no prize involved so I wonder whether even players are serious and invested players enough to consider trading answers with one another.

It's a balancing act between openness and minimising fraudulent activity. I'm really at a quandary as to what to do here. =(

*adopts the pose of the thinker*

Added after 2 minutes:

An Achievement System is to be added to the League. A Swapnote message will be sent out tomorrow. Here is a list of six achievements i've drawn up so far:



... and here's at look one of the Achievement Badges that I will also be sending out to deserving players tomorrow. (some of you are halfway to achieving a Six-Shot)




Don't worry about the Values assigned to each achievement, they are just used to determine positions when the Total scores are the same. Full details are on page one for those of you who want to read further.

Yeah it is 'just for fun' but some people love win. And some people are very competitive.

We are on a video games forum, the emphasis is on fun.

Mario Kart 7 is all for fun but that doesn't stop people using glitches to advance their stats and how many people have posted theories regarding hacking and cheating whilst playing MK7 online? And I reckon most of the people who do this, are not young kids.

Just adding some credibility to my query.
May I be so bold as to suggest that you send the answers universally after specified deadlines. It would ensure fairness, and like you said something within your control.

You have put a lot of thought and effort into the SLT and so far it has been brilliant. I would hate to see it demise because of unfair gameplay. If I caught wind of cheating, I wouldn't want to play anymore, it would take the 'fun' out of it.

.
Im kinda also into this.
What if the right/correct answers would just be sent out after the deadline?
That way, sending the right/correct answers within the competitors will be avoided. Just to make it fair to those who give their answers immediately.
Just my two cents Paul. But im giving you my support to any improvements you have in mind.
More power to you and to the Swapnote League!

Hi Bella,

Thanks for your continued support and intelligent suggestions with regards to the issue of improving fairness within the S.T.L. The more I read the arguments 'for' a return to 'Answer Deadlines' (as there was in Season One) the more I am convinced that perhaps maybe this new 'Immediate Response' system is flawed.

I still don't have any evidence or a particularly strong belief that people are manipulating the system this way, but if even one individual was doing so, then that would be to the detriment of the league and would serve to discourage other players.

If I were to adopt the system you're proposing, when would be the optimum time to re-introduce it? Here, I think, is the case for each:
  • At the end of the current season: I have already tampered with the League System quite a bit already this season. Answer delivery times and methods were changed (to instant delivery and only to those who answer) the value of points was changed (from 1 and 0.5 to 2 and 1) and now achievements are being added. Players may already be bewildered as it is and need time to acclimatise to all the changes, altering it further may disillusion and discourage them.
  • Re-introduce them immediately: To ensure fairness for the remainder of the season, Answer Deadlines should be brought back from the next question onwards. Since the system has been tinkered with already, players are used to there being changes and any confusion can be dispelled by sending out a letter to everyone notifying them of the change and explaining that the current season is about refining the workings of the League to determine the best system possible.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks again,

~P~

I think you should reiterate deadlines and inform all players that you will now send answers to all respondents after the deadline, effective immediately. For the remainder of the season, all players who have yet to submit Q1,2,3 will now receive their answers after the deadline.
I don't think you should worry about having too many changes in a short space of time, people will understand your effort to sustain fairness.
Thanks for valuing my opinion and contributions.

Hi Binky,

Thanks so much for your continued co-operation and support. If there was an achievement badge for most involved member, i'd have to give it to you =)

Whilst deliberating on the arguments put forth by myself, you and others, one thing occurred to me that perhaps needs to be discussed:
  • Whilst I do see that cheating through sharing answers is plausible under the current system, the motivation to do so is less clear. The motivation of the person seeking the answers from someone else is obvious, but what of the person who willingly shares the answers? If, as you have stated before, some people like to win and the league is competitive by definition, why would another player share the answers with another to the possible detriment of their own position in the league?

I personally don't think the 'anchor' achievement is very fair. Still thinking of an achievement...

Added after 5 minutes:

How about it could be worth say 1 point? If they didn't answer at least one round of questions they get the achievement. Only for that season though.

Hi Word,

Thanks for your opinion on the 'anchor' achievement. I thought i'd reply with a few points on the achievements in general. Nobody has any points added or any points taken away by getting an achievement.

The purpose of the achievements are:

a) To give players something to aim for
b) To encourage players to answer more of the questions, particularly those at the bottom who for whatever reason, may only have answered 1 question of the 4 submitted.
c) As a way for me to determine league position when two players share the same points.

You are correct when you say that the 'anchor' isn't especially fair when you consider that there are people who haven't answered any questions and thus it seems like i'm unfairly bestowing a demerit on those who have at least replied to one question.

However, the way I see it, until you at least attempt to answer a single question then you aren't technically participating in the league. That is why in the current table (both on the thread and sent out via Swapnote) those with 0 points do not appear.

In-fact, should those on 0 points fail to answer a single question by the end of the season, then I will take it to mean that they aren't interested in playing and no more questions will be sent to them.

...keep working on those achievement ideas if you feel up to it and thanks for trying =)

~P~

You make a good point. I don't mean to sound cynical in respect of others, nor do I wish to accuse anyone of un-sportsman like behaviour. I try to be a sunny, positive person. But a strive for fairness in all eventualities should take precedent over assuming all possible outcomes and motivations of gameplay. IMO.

In conclusion: Given that it would appear to be very unlikely that another competitor would knowingly give another player the answers, when it would be to their own disadvantage to do so, I don't feel the case is strong enough to issue another change in the rules at this juncture, especially with the end of the season being a mere 10 days away.

...however; though the likelihood of cheating in this manner is probably slim and, as yet, unproven, it does not preclude the possibility of it happening. Therefore, in the interim period between this season and the next, the question of whether to revert to deadlines or to retain the current system will be put to a vote and the players can decide.

...In Other News
  • The 'Latest News' section has been updated on the main page.
  • League 1 and League 2 tables have been updated to include the results from Wednesdays Question 4 answer submissions.

Hi there Mike/Rae,

You are both confirmed as friends. I have sent you both a visitor message explaining what happens next and two Swapnote Letters are also on their way. They will contain an Info Pack and Question 1.

Although I haven't stated this on the main page yet, it would be best if players leave their 3DS in sleep mode for at least some of the day so that the Questions can reach you more easily.

I am thrilled that we have been able to add even more members to our ranks and I look forward to receiving your answers. =)

Hi Hipbot/Rose,

I'm not sure why there was a problem but i've re-sent Question 1 to you both. Please delete any invalid notes that came through and keep me updated. Also, if the letter is taking its sweet time getting to you, try forcing it to come through by tapping on the arrow in the bottom right corner and selecting send/receive. If you've already tried this then disregard this instruction.

Hi Rose,

To get into League 1 (Advanced) you will need to come in the Top 10 in League 2.

Originally, it was going to be much harder, like only the top 2 players would get promoted, but because about half of League 1's players from last season have dropped out then I need to get more players into the upper league to balance the numbers a bit. League 1 only has 15 players at the moment whereas League 2 has 30+

Thanks for your question.

btw: Q3 Answer, Q4 and an S.T.L Update letter has been sent to you. =)

Hi Josh,

The Deadline for new players for this Season is tomorrow, lucky to have made it in. =) I have sent you a Private Message detailing what happens now and have sent out an Info Pack and Question 1 via Swapnote.

Because there's only one week left (this season) then be prepared for a flood of questions (6 in all)

Best of luck to you

Hi Sean,

Thanks for all your encouragement. Question 5 will be sent out in roughly 12hrs time.
The latest League Tables have been published on the main page and it looks like you're sitting pretty at the top:



By my calculations, you need a total of 6 points from the remaining two questions to be guaranteed promotion to League 1.

Best of luck!

Question 5 has now been sent out via Swapnote to everyone* in League 1 and League 2.
Only a few answers have come in so far but it's early days and i'm expecting at least 10 or so by the morning. (U.K) League Tables will be updated on the thread tomorrow night.

* Q5 has not been sent out to those who haven't received Q1-4 yet: this includes Dex, Josh, Tiney, Dion & Badger. Come on you guys, get those answers in!

Greetings Players,

Sorry you had to wait so long for your answers. After sending them out between 1am - 2am, I normally retire to bed, which is why there's a delay. Thankfully I am awake now and answers have been sent out to both of you.

League Tables will be updated on the thread at around midnight tonight if you'd like to see how you did. =)

~P~

Hi Mike,

I've just checked the recipient list for the answers to Question 4 and i definitely sent it to you. If you mean that you haven't been told what your score is then perhaps i'd best clarify.

Providing personalised score summaries for every player would prove too much work, so the best system I could come up with was to a letter that gave the answers to the relevant question along with how many points it was worth. Players were then meant to check them against the answers they'd submitted or to check the league tables on this thread to ascertain their score.

I hope this helps.

~P~

Added after 3 minutes:

@Mike: Ahhh I think I see what you mean now, your score for Question 4 isn't given in the League 2 table on the first page.

No worries, your scores for Q4 & Q5 will be represented in the table when I update them at midnight tonight (U.K time)

...but i'm feeling generous so i've sent you a small picture of your score (only) via a private message =)

~P~

Hi Gamerfan,

I have checked using two different browsers (Firefox and Internet Explorer) and the images load perfectly fine. Have you tried using a different browser? Yesterday 3DS Forums wouldn't load in Firefox for me at all (temporarily) but loaded just fine in I.E, weird.

Anyway, if this admittedly lame fix doesn't work for you then click on the links below to see the most recent League Tables:

League 1 Table < click here >
League 2 Table < click here >

~P~

EDIT: I have uploaded the most recent League Tables on the first page in .JPEG format rather than .PNG. I do not know if this will fix the problem for you but I thought i'd try it nonetheless.

Yeah, seems like the .JPEG format has done the trick.

I appreciate your hard work and efforts, Paul. Keep the good work on!

Hi Josh,

I've sent you Question 1, 2 and 3 but i haven't got any replies from you thus far. Do you still want to participate?

Note: To make it easier to receive letters, please leave your 3DS in Sleep Mode for a short period during the day/preferably longer. Also, make sure to clear out your backlog of letters so that questions do not get lost in the shuffle.

Hope to hear from you soon.

~P~


Hi Players,



Here are the latest S.T.L updates:

  • Tables for League 1 and League 2 have been sent to all players via Swapnote.
  • The most recent, up to the minute tables for League 1 and League 2 are now available to view on the first page.
  • The Final Question will be sent out in less than 24hrs time
  • If players are still tied after the final round of scoring then those in Important Positions (e.g - 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Promotion Slots, Relegation Slots etc) will be sent a special Tie-break question to determine the victor.

  • New Achievements: Suggestions so far include the following:

    - 'Drawing' your answers
    - Finishing in 2nd or 3rd place
    - Unique Champion badges for each League
    - Gold, Silver and Bronze badges for the top 3
    - Current badges to be replaced by Mario related badges

I quite like the last suggestion. Perhaps a 'Star Coin' could replace the Champion badge and a 'Bullet Bill' could replace the Responder badge. Just an idea.


Let me know if you think of any =)

Unhappy Mamma Mia!

Hi Players,

** Update: Question 6, The Final Question of the Season, has been sent!**

Thanks Rose & Dcv for your suggestions. I really like the idea of different achievements for 1st, 2nd and 3rd and using something fast, like a Kart, as an icon for the Responder badge. Here are some of my own submissions:

Perfect Score


Champion


Progress


Responder


Anchor



P.S: Rose's boy, girl idea is something else i'm considering. Perhaps an award could be given out for highest male scorer and highest female scorer. It's all just one big idea at the moment. I'll keep you posted.

Hi 'Word'

I'm aware of the problem and have sent Sean a note asking him to avert his eyes away from your answer and to try and delete it before he is able to see it properly. Not much else I can do i'm afraid. I hope the collateral damage is minimal and that a lesson is learned =)

Hi Fef,

I've added you to my Friend List and we are now confirmed as Friends. Welcome to Swapnote Trivia League!

The current season is nearly over and the new one will start at the end of this month or early in March.

I will be sending out some League Letters before then asking new and old players alike what things they'd like to change about the league etc.

For now, check out the League Rules on the first page and be patient. =)

~P~

EDIT:

Hi Players,

There are only a few days left to get your answers in before the Season ends on Tuesday, Feb 21st. Here are a few pieces of news:
  • The most recent League Tables are now available to view on the first page
  • Due to a tie at the top of League 2, a Tie-Break question will be sent out
    on Monday to determine the top 3 positions.
  • Depending on how things play out, Tie-Break questions may also decide the final promotion slot in League 2 as well as the top 3 positions in League 1
~P~

Hi Rose,

Glad you are in for next season =) That's actually something i'll be asking all players once the season finishes on Tuesday. I suspect some will say they no longer want to play and others won't answer but we'll see.

Currently, only the top 10 players in League 2 will be promoted but this could change depending on how many people decide to opt out. My decision isn't final, final yet but I wouldn't count on it being changed unless the circumstances left me with no choice =)

P.S: Yay, the thread has reached 100 replies =)

Hi Players,

As Rose has stated, only the Top Ten players from League 2 will be promoted at the end of the season.

Currently, I need to promote a lot of people due to the small number of players in League 1. (16 in League 1 compared to over 30 in League 2) but depending on how many people tell me they don't want to play and drop out each season then the number of promotion slots may change.

I hope that makes sense.

~P~

Hey Mike,

League 2 was always going to be tough this year. The people at the very top were so good, I was having a hard time coming up with questions to stump them.

Even the person currently in 10th place has scored 29 Points, out of a possible 36. Astonishing. It'll be interesting to see how up on their gaming trivia the new members are, but with a similar performance I think you'll get a little closer next season. =)

Update: There's about 8hrs of the season still to go, after that i'll start drawing up the Final League Tables and will send you out a copy via Swapnote.

~P~

Hey Players,

Season 2 has Officially Ended!

I am currently in the process of sending out the Final League Tables as well as any remaining Achievements. In several days I will send out a Questionnaire that will help to use Player feedback to determine changes to S.T.L Season 3.

In the meantime, why not head to the first page (Click Here) to check out the latest news and see your final league position.

I want to extend a sincere thank you to everyone who took part and helped to make Swapnote Trivia League a success.

Season 3 will begin at the end of February or Early March

See you soon!

~P~

I was so happy at 3rd place! I thought I'd be rubbish at this when I joined!
Congrats to everyone who placed as well!

Good luck everyone for next time.

Question for Paul: Hiya! Does the points system reset to 0 or does everyone keep their points and accumulate more next season?

Hi Bella/Sean,

Thank you both for your continued support, enthusiasm and valuable input. I thought i'd made a big mistake by posting this thread in the 'Matchmaking' section rather than on the Main Page, but it's been anything but lonely and your continued correspondence has provided the motivation required to maintain the thread.

@Sean: You are gracious in defeat, although 2nd place is hardly a defeat, particularly when the caliber of your opponents was near perfect. Coming up with those Tie-Break questions was tough, I sort of wish now i'd just made Champions of all 3 of you. =)

@Bella: In answer to your question, all scores revert back to 0 i'm afraid. Although, I keep excellent records, so if S.T.L is successful enough to make it through a few seasons, i'll publish a Super Table that collates scores across every season.

~P~

Hi there,

Season 2 has finished and we are now recruiting new players for Season 3, so you're more than welcome to join. =) I have added you to my Friend List and we are now confirmed as Friends.

I will be sending out a Questionnaire to all players soon, asking them what changes they'd like to see in Season 3. Players are also encouraged to send any suggestions they have via Swapnote or to leave a message on this thread.

Feel free to familiarise yourself with some of the core rules of the League by reading the first post on the main page, if you haven't done so already. <Click Here>

Welcome to Swapnote Trivia League.

~P~

Hi Sean,

I thought i'd covered up too much of the picture but frankly by that point I was desperate to fool one of you so I could declare a Champion before the season ended. =)

The useful aspect of it was that if ever I need to issue another tie-break question to determine position, i've got at least 6 I can re-use.

Update: By the way, the proposed Questionnaire will be sent out tomorrow. I look forward to hearing your suggestions and receiving your votes. =)

anyways, looking forward to the questionnaire.

Hi Players:



-
The first of two Questionnaire's/Survey's will be sent to Season 2 players via Swapnote later today, at around 5pm (GMT)

-
They represent an attempt to get some constructive feedback from players and improve how the League operates. I would be very thankful if you could contribute and send me a reply. =)

- An Opt-Out letter will also be sent at around the same time to those players who only answered 1 or 2 questions last season and will ask them whether or not they want to participate anymore.

- Depending on how many say no, as well as how many New Players get added between now and the beginning of Season 3 I may decide to create a 3rd league to accommodate everybody.

- Main Page: The Latest News section will be updated soon and the Final Standings for Season 2 will be taken down this weekend to make way for the Season 3 Roster of players.

P.S: Taken down is perhaps a poor description, Season 2 results will still be viewable via a link just like the Season 1 results are, and important information like who was Champion, promoted etc will continue to be shown on the main page.

That's all for now.

~P~

Hi Players,

Here are the latest S.T.L news & Updates:




I have also tweaked the Achievements image to show the new League 1 & 2 trophies and Graduation achievement. Depending on the results of this weeks survey, the icons may be replaced by Mario/Nintendo themed ones. I will keep you posted.




That's all for now...

Hi Players,

@JMundo:
We are confirmed as friends and you've been entered into the League. Welcome to the S.T.L

@Alvin:
I will send you a sample question from Season 1 later on today so you can gain some insight into the nature and difficulty of the questions you'll be facing. N:B: if anyone else would like to see/try a sample question, leave a message on the thread and I will get back to you.


That's all for now...

~P~

Hey Alvin,

Nobody likes the 'Anchor' it seems =) That said, players who usually receive the 'Anchor' are ones that only answer about 1 or 2 of the 6 questions in a season, so as long as you answer as many questions as you can then you're unlikely to finish bottom and receive the anchor achievement.

Thanks for your response.

- S.T.L -

I loved playing STL Season 2 and can't wait for Season 3 to start. Although I am a bit worried the questions in league 1 may be a bit hard for me. My goal for Season 3 is to avoid relegation. Keep up the good work ~P~

@Derreck: Of course you're welcome to join! I will send you a private message soon and send out an -info pack- via Swapnote so as to officially welcome you to the S.T.L

@ Alvin: forgot to mention actually but it looks as though that achievement won't be called the Anchor anymore as players taking part in the Survey are voting strongly for the achievements to be Nintendo-themed. So i'll be changing them soon and putting them up on the main page for you all to see. =)

That's all for now...

Hi Players,

Hairy moment earlier when yours truly accidentally gave his Laptop a drink of water. =( It completely died on me for a few hours, effectively cancelling Season 3 since all my STL data is saved on it.

But Don't Worry! SEASON 3 still starts on Wednesday, February 29th.

@Reks:
You've been added to the roster on the main page.

I'd best get working on the first question. See you Wednesday and keep watching out for the 'Blue Light'


That's all for now...

Default Question 1 Has Been Sent!

Hi Players:

Update:
Question 1 will be sent out via Swapnote/Letter Box between 1am - 2am (U.K Time) If anyone else would like to join, we've got one more slot still available, so join up quickly before the start of the new Season.

Update 2: There will be a total of 7 questions this Season, each with either 2 or 3 parts each. It will alternate, so Q1 has part a, b and c; where as Q2 has only two parts, a and b.

They have been moved to very top of the page (underneath the Latest News banner)

Main Page (click here)

* Updated League Tables will be sent via
Swapnote/ Letter Box on Friday.

That's all for now...

~P~

Post S.T.L Update

Hi Players,



*
The first League Tables of the new Season have now been sent to all players via Swapnote/Letter Box.

* Question 2 will be sent to all players via Swapnote/Letter Box on Saturday, March 3rd (1:00am U.K time)

* Question 1
was sent out several days ago, still awaiting answers from 17 players out of a total of 46. Of course, you are free to answer any time you wish, it's just I wouldn't advise leaving it too long as you'll be swamped with questions.

* The Main Page has been updated with the Latest News and most up to date League Tables. Go check it out =) Click Here.

Thumbs up S.T.L Update

Just letting you know that Question 2! has been sent to everyone via Swapnote.
Also, League Tables have been updated once again, just go to the Main Page to see where you stand in the rankings. =)

Check out the League Table on the main page, it seems like you're doing rather well, don't you think =)

The caliber of player in League 1 this season is very high indeed, so if they are true to form then finishing in the Top 10 may prove difficult. That said, you are currently two points ahead of a previous champion and look on course to securing your goal of avoiding relegation. =)

That's all for now...

Hi Paul,

Just sent you my Q2 answers, boy, tough one! You're sure keeping us on our toes this season!

Quick question, on the Tables, what does A-Score, R-Score & TB-Score mean? Or is that just for your benefit?

Cheers, Binky

Hi Binky,

Thanks for your question, it actually helped me realise that I hadn't updated that portion of the table correctly. In future, the columns will look like this:

Total A-Score R-Score HRT-Score

The A-Score, R-Score etc are a way of determining ranking when the Total Score is tied. So if two players have the same Total Score, then I would decide their ranking based on the following scores:

1) A-Score: Achievement Score: The sum of the total value of a players combined achievements.
2) R. Score: Responder Score: The total number of times a player answered questions on the day they were sent out.
3) H.R.T Score: Highest Running Total of 3: The players highest running total over 3 consecutive questions.
4) Tie-Breaker: A tie-break question will be sent out to try to finally separate the players. This will only be done at the end of a Season, as a last resort
5) Stalemate: If the scores are still tied, then both players will be given equal position.

It's mostly for my own benefit but players could use their knowledge of it to try to improve their overall position. For instance, one of the brand-new achievements is really obvious, yet nobody seems to have taken advantage of it thus far.

Hope this helps explain it a little better =)

~P~

Hi Players,

It's Wednesday!! Time to send out Question 3 and the first batch of Achievements!
It's been awhile since I posted here so for anyone who is interested, here are the latest updates:



* For those who haven't answered Q1, Q2 or Both, send your answers in before you get flooded
with Q3 and Q4 which is also coming this week on Saturday.
* League Tables will be sent out on Friday

...but for now, check Swapnote/ Letter Box for Question 3 and start sending me your answers.

Good Luck!

That's all for now...

~P~

Hi Chaotix,

To be honest, the achievement didn't exist originally. It was only after you sent me the letter about the mistake in Question 3 that it occurred to me that I could base an achievement off it, thus increasing the number of badges but also as a special reward for people like yourself who really helped me out by drawing attention to potential errors in the questions.

Thanks again. =)

~P~

Added after 1 41 minutes:

Hi Players,

It seems i'm pretty accident prone at the moment.

* League 2 table on the main page has now been Updated with the correct
scores from Question 3. I should have allocated 2pts for a correct answer
for both parts b) & c). This has now been corrected and your new Total Score's
tallied and represented in the latest table.

Again, awfully sorry.

~P~

Hi Erico,

I've just double checked League 2 Question 3 on Swapnote and I haven't received an answer from you. You did very well on Q1 and Q2 so I did think it strange when I didn't get any answers from you on Q3.

I have re-sent (a fresh, newly created ) Question 3 to you, and have also sent you Question 4 (yesterday) so leave your 3DS on stand-by and make sure it is connected to the internet. Check to see if you've received any questions from me in a few hours and then write me back on the thread to let me know they've arrived.

If they have arrived, answer them both and i'll check Swapnote to see if they've come in. If it still doesn't work I have a fix we could try.

Real sorry this has happened, but i'm sure we can work together to fix it. =)

Thanks for letting me know!

~P~

I think I'm going to bow out of SLT for now. The questions are a bit out of my Nintendo scope of knowledge. I might be interested in going back to the easy league, but you can take me off of the league 1 . Thank's! Its been fun!

Hi Hipbot,

Sorry to hear of your desire to exit the League, although i appreciate that the difficulty of the questions is high at the moment.

If you are still interested in playing in League 2 (easy) next season then that could be easily arranged.

Whatever happens, you've been a credit to the league and a high scorer in the majority of the questions you've answered.

Let me know what you decide.

Post S.T.L Update (14/03/12)

Hi Players,

Not a lot of news to report recently which is why the thread's been relatively dormant.
However, today is different. Here are the latest updates:



New Idea!


I've been thinking about ways I can increase player choice/control, and one of the ideas I came up with
was to give players the ability to earn Topic Tokens. These could be exchanged at any point during the
season and allow players to decide the topic for one of the next questions.

I haven't decided how Topic Tokens would be earned but here are a few possibilities:

  • Awarded for every season you complete
  • Awarded for answering a special Star Question correctly
  • 5 Responder Points would earn a Star Coin which can be used to
    purchase a token. These Responder Points could be accumulated across
    multiple seasons.
I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know what you think of this idea, or if you have any ideas about
how Topic Tokens could be earned, or any other ideas, please let me know on the thread. =)

@Sean: Hey man, questions were always going to be harder in League 1 but i've had to make some of them
harder still just to stop the top players from getting a perfect score every time. If it helps, you're currently ahead
of both Season 1's Champion and the guy who finished 2nd last season.

That's got to count for something right =)

That's all for now guys...

~P~

Hey ~P~

I really love the idea of Topic Tokens, that you could purchase with responder points, as it means anyone can buy Tokens if they have enough points and not just people who are top of the League. I hope this idea gets implemented, but may be best to do this at the beginning of next season.

Keep up the good work

Awesome didn't know there was a forum thread.

guess I'll check this out from now on.

EDIT: wait what's the difference between league one and league two?

@John: Apologies if I haven't promoted the thread all that much. I've included a link in my S.T.L letters
quite a few times but it's always phrased as "if you'd like to see full league tables, please visit..." which
doesn't really explain that there's a whole thread devoted to it. So i'll make that clearer in future letters.
Thanks for the idea

Also, in answer to your question, the difference between League 1 and 2 is that the questions in League 1
are more difficult. Also, new players automatically start in League 2 and have to work their way up.

Well, it's a pleasure to see you here, don't forget to check out the Main Page (CLICK HERE) to see the
Latest News and the most recent, detailed League Tables. =)

--------------------------------------------------

Hi Players,

Here are the latest Updates:



Responses to Question 5 have been very slow indeed. With less than half the active players having
sent in their answers so far. Of course, players are free to answer whenever they wish.

I am also considering some New Ideas for the League:
  • Topic Tokens: Players could use these tokens to select the topic for a
    future question.
  • Team Table: Teams made up of two players each add their scores together and try to win the
    Team Table Title. Players will be able to pick their own team names and team emblem.
  • Prizes: Although strapped for crash, I am looking for ways to give out prizes to winners etc,
    so stay tuned.
These are merely ideas at the moment, but I would like to add something that gives players some control
over questions as well as another feature like Team Table that provides further motivation and encourages
people to keep playing.


That's all for now...

~P~

Lightbulb The Prize Question...

Hi Players,

Just a small update...



I've added little head shots of Players Mii's (well 10 so far) beside players names in the
League Table, just to personalize things a bit. Plus, it looks nicer than having a wall of text
and numerical data =)

If you'd like a Mii Head Shot beside your name instead of a black silhouette then just send
me an image of your Mii's Face. Here's how:

- Mii Maker
- Q.R Code/Image Options
- Save Mii as Image
- Choose your Mii
- Save as Face
- Add Pic of Mii in Swapnote
- Send it to Paul (STL)

-------------------------------------------

@John: It's okay, I don't feel forced to offer prizes, it's more that I want to, or at least would like to.
Still i appreciate the sentiment so thank you for that.

Regarding the proposed Topic Tokens feature, I figured that people would have games, franchises that
they were more familiar with or knowledgeable about and thus select topics based around those.

I suppose the kicker is that the question may still stump you anyway, but hopefully it should be a fun addition
should I decide to include it =)

@Mike: I read your most recent letter (Swapnote) and have decided to give the matter some further thought.
I will add you to my Friend List here on 3DSForums, which is a more suitable platform for sending long messages
as opposed to using Swapnote, and we 'll discuss things in more detail.

That's all for now...

Hey Sean,

No need to apologies, I fully understand that we all have
lives and that business has to be taken care of before we
can do the things we want.

I apologise if I ever gave the impression that I was being
pushy in any way about people getting their answers in.

My intention is rather to issue reminders since I know that
sometimes Swapnote/Letter Box can fill up with letters
really fast and the ones you want to pay attention to can
get lost in the shuffle.

One more question to go this Season and then i'll be taking
a break from Swapnote Trivia League for a little while to
work on other projects.

Then i'll be back for a bigger, better, more exciting Season 4

Thanks for your contribution.

~P~

Post S.T.L Update (19/03/12)

Hi Players,

Here are the latest update, well update:



i)
I've altered and refined the Achievements section on the first page.
Some of the scores for the Standard Achievements have been lowered
and the scores for League Specific Achievements have been removed.

Basically, I didn't think it fair that the top 3 players from each League
get to carry over an Achievement Score (between 1 - 3) to the next
Season, as firstly, these are top players, it's not as if they need any help,
and secondly I think Ach. Scores should reflect your achievements over
the course of the current season only, which ensures a 'fair fight' so to
speak.

League Specific Achievement Scores will be removed from Season 4
onwards and the badges themselves will be purely decorative.

ii) I'm a little dissatisfied with the image quality of the Badges and
League Tables
you have received via Swapnote/ Letter Box. I'll
be improving them which should make reading them a little easier.

iii) League Tables on the main page are now a little bigger, which
makes viewing them a little easier on the eye. Don't forget, you can
always click the image for a larger, higher quality version.

iv) The Final Question of the Season is this Wednesday and it'll
feature a brand new style of question.

--------------------------------------------------------------

@Gamerfan: Hey Man, sorry about the 'back & forth' about the Mii Pics earlier,
i'm glad that you've fixed the problem and I await a re-send of your Mii Pic for the
League 1 table.

Also, thanks for alerting me to potential issues surrounding the inability
to save pics on Swapnote. I've now added a whole section about it on the main page for
the benefit of anyone else who may make the same mistake.

If you choose to do prizes, a good idea for one would be one of those $20 gift cards to the e-shop

20 dollars seems a little much but e-shop gift cards would probably be the best idea since it get around having to ship the gifts.

Lightbulb S.T.L Update (21/03/12)

Hi Players,

Here is the latest news:



Normally i'd send out a League Table on Friday but since the season ends this coming Tuesday,
i've been debating holding off until then.

@John: Thanks very much for the Mii Pic, it is now proudly displayed next to your name in the League 1
table
on the Main Page. I also tried to transfer the image with the Shy Guy mask but alas you cannot.
Unfortunately there are no image repositories for the masks online either. =(

@Cheezy&John: The possibility of handing out Prizes is still in the planning phase. Mike (from League 2) has
generously offered to assist with the prizes for North American winners in any way that he can. At the moment we're
deliberating on:


* What prizes
* Who can win them
* How many prizes
* Budget
* Shipping costs
* Regional concerns

John's point about how gift cards negate any shipping costs is a good one and it's a prize we're considering.

However, the League as it stands makes sharing prize duties potentially one-sided, since it's perfectly possible that all
the winners in Season 4 could be American say, which would leave some possible prizes like (Wii Shop Gifts, Software
that only works in one region) unclaimed.


To that end, i'm considering splitting the player base into North American and European Leagues (maybe 4 leagues of 14)
with an easy and hard League each. I'm still keen on having a separate Team League as well but i won't take on that
much if I feel I can't handle it. Thankfully S.Bear (from League 1) has offered to manage one/two of the lower leagues if
that's what I choose to do.

So it's all just an idea at the moment. I'll keep you posted.


That's all for now.....

If you do decide to give out prizes, would previous winners get one, and would 1st, 2nd, and 3rd winners get one?

Post S.T.L Update (22/03/12)

Hi Players,

Just a quick update:





Almost all of the 'Active Players' in League 2 have now sent in their answers to Question 7
and most people have now responded to the Vote on the additional question.

Players have until Saturday, March 24th to cast their vote, as if the result deems that the
majority support an additional question then i'd like to send it out quite soon considering the
end of season Deadline is on Tuesday, March 27th.

@Morgan: Giving out prizes retroactively unfortunately that would mean giving out at least
5 prizes (we're in our 3rd Season, the second with 2 Leagues) which wouldn't have much to
give out in Season 4.

S.T.L
is simply a fun little game we can all play together on our 3DS's and the Prizes are just
something i'm doing for next Season as a Bonus really.
It would be great if I could give out prizes to the top 3 in each League but ultimately it'll be a
question of what's feasible considering the budget. It also depends on how the Leagues are
structured next season. At the moment it is likely that they will be reformed according to region:

League 1
(North America)
League 2 (North America)
League 1 (Europe)
League 2 (Europe)

A prize might be given to everyone who finishes in 1st Place in each League, and then if
possible, for all those who win their respective end of season Playoffs.

Possible Prizes: eShop Gift Cards, Club Nintendo Rewards, Wii Shop gifts (VC, Wiiware)
Kid Icarus AR Cards, Nintendo DS Games.

I've been thinking it'd be great to get a Gaming Magazine or Gaming Site interested in getting
involved with Swapnote Trivia League but the main problem is that I don't see how it would
benefit them. I've probably got my head in the clouds even considering such things, but whether
you think i'm daydreaming or might be on to something. Let me know in the comments.

~P~

Is it really a good idea to split the leagues? They're small enough as it is... Perhaps it would be better to simply award prizes to the top players from each region rather than splitting the user base, for the spirit of competition if nothing else.

Nintendo is already driving me crazy enough due to their obsession with regional segregation. We shouldn't encourage them!

Hi Champ, (if the name comes across as something a proud father calls his Son after a game of stick
ball in the driveway, believe me, it's not meant that way ^-^ )

Great to see you here on the forums! With regards to the user base, it is something that's always been
fluid, I dare say there are no more than 5 left from Season 1, so I was always going to have to recruit
new players, especially since I suspect that at least 30-40% of the people in League 2 are no longer
'active players'


The reason behind setting up regional leagues was so that I would handle the European prizes and Mike
the North American ones. I didn't want to have a scenario where one was giving out more than the other.

Your idea about awarding prizes to the best player from respective regions is nevertheless a superb
alternative as the balance I hope to maintain will not be unsettled as we'd simply be rewarding the best
American player and the best European player in each league. I'll be giving it some serious thought once
this Season is over.

Thanks again

~P~

Despite setting myself the goal of avoiding relegation this season, i'm still disappointed Serpream and Youssef scored so highly in the end as I was hoping to hold on to 6th. =(

I like Tekka's idea but i think leagues should have equal numbers of players from each region so everyone has same number of people to compete against.

It would not be very fair if there were more Americans say as it would be harder to get American prize whereas European one would be easier because less competition.

Post S.T.L Season 3 is now over!

Hi Players,

Here are the latest Updates:



Now that Season 3 is over, i'll be taking a short break from S.T.L
and then i'll be back to plan the next one.

I will formally announce it soon but Season 4 will now feature
Prizes as well as a Team League, amongst other minor additions.

@John: Luckily she did not, although I say luckily when really
I sort of feel worried that she got the first 4 questions correct
and then suddenly disappeared. Seems she hasn't been on her
3DS in nearly 2 weeks.

Still, Congratulations are in order, anyone who came within
2 points of dethroning the mighty Tekka clearly knows his stuff =)

That's all for now...

Disappointed that Binky gave up after question four! I was half expecting her to rise from the ashes like a phoenix, and soundly defeat me at the last minute. Still, it was a great run and congratulations to the other winners and everyone who took part right to the end. Of course, big thanks to you Paul for running another great game.

Looking forward to next time!

I was half expecting a dramatic return from Binky right at the 11th hour as well. Well Done Tekka and Everyone else for making it interesting. I would also like to thank Paul for his efforts as well, as it requires so much work behind the scenes. Keep up the good work, and I can't wait for Season 4.

Sadly Binky Phoenix didn't rise from the flames in time, but according to my Friend List, she's back
on her 3DS. Perhaps she will sign up for Season 4, we shall see.


That's all for now...

@Tekka & Chaotix: Those are some good ones, suitably Nintendo themed and
most likely popular choices. I will add your suggestions to the list of Team Names
i've already compiled and who knows, maybe they'll make the Final 10.

@Altair: To answer your question, Swapnote Trivia League isa twice-weekly quiz using the Swapnote application for the Nintendo 3DS.

Players answer questions to earn points and achievement badges, and try to finish as high up the League Table as they can.

We are currently recruiting players for Season 4 which should start in around 2 weeks time. If you'd like to know more about the League and want to know how to join Click Here and follow the instructions on the first page.

Btw: Are you a resident of Syria? If so do you know what region your 3DS is? e.g PAL or NTSC. If you imported your console, which country did you import it from.

Can't wait to play Season 4, sounds like it will be even more fun than Season 3. What with all the new additions and everything.

@Fotane: Hi there, what relief to find another person from
the U.K who wants to play S.T.L, we're rather short of your
like at the moment =)

I've added you to my Friend List and we are now confirmed
as friends. I have sent you a Swapnote about what happens
next and await your Mii Face Picture.

@ S.Bear, Morgan, Lohengrin: I must admit I LOL'd
when I read Team Rocket. So much so I might actually
include them. Team Pong is also pretty funny when
you realise Pong relates to smell, and whoever gets stuck
with Team Slippy will be the laughing stock of the League =)

Seeing as how there'll be between 10 and 15 Teams, I figure
i'll throw in at least 1 or 2 oddball names. But here's a few i'm
seriously considering:

Team Mac (Little Mac from Punch Out!)
Team Pit
Team Meta (Meta Knight)
Team Samus
Team Sonic
Team Snake
Team Shyguy
Team Banjo
Team Ganon
Team Valentine (Jill from Resident Evil)

More updates soon. Big thanks for all your suggestions thus far.

P.S Lohengrin: are you a current S.T.L player? If so, who are you? If not, are
you interested in joining?

"We apologize for the inconvenience."

I'm Zaphod on the 3DS and Lohengrin here. I just joined the forum this week and jumped in with my suggestions. Apparently, I really like my anonymity. I see a lot of people use their real names. I may change that.

Post S.T.L Update (01/04/12)

Hi Players,

Here are the latest updates:



- I don't think i'm going to be able to have equal numbers
of PAL and NTSC players, so the plans I had to restructure
the league around that may have to be scrapped.

- There's been a steady influx of new players for Season 4
since I started advertising on the NintendoLife forums so
we've got more than enough to keep the league viable.

- Finally, here is a look at the Shortlist for possible Team Names:



Note:
if anyone is still confused about how the Team League
functions, a Swapnote explaining things should be with you shortly,
there's also some info on the main page of the thread about it.

@Zaphod: Hey man, sorry I didn't know it was you =)
Nothing wrong with preferring to remain anonymous,
some could argue that people are far too willing to part
with their personal information these days.

I've sent you some Swapnotes explaining basic League rules,
Team info and a Test Question for you to get a feel for how
the questions are presented and how easy or difficult they can be.


That's all for now guys. More updates soon.

Hey I'm ClaytonLuigi from Nintendo Life. The person whose fc you couldn't add. Well, the thread there was deleted. Just letting you know!

Added after 31 minutes:

But I would still like to join this. My Username is Clayton☆ from the USA. Is there anything else I need to register for this?

@Cheezy: Sorry man, didn't realise you wanted to play Season 4. I sent out a
Swapnote
on Friday asking everyone if they wanted to play S4 but i hadn't received
a reply from you. The deadline for entries is April 5th. If you'd still want to join i'll
add you right away!

@Clayton: Hey man, was afraid i'd lost you when the thread got deleted. According
to Nintendo Life, i'm not allowed to advertise my own competitions on the forums and
that's why it got pulled.

I've tried resetting my wireless network and many other tricks, but it still won't add you.
Let's just leave it a day or two and if they still don't connect to each other i've got another
way around it.

As for anything else you have to do to join, don't worry about it. When we are confirmed
as friends, i'll take care of the rest.

Hi Players,

Plenty of updates to tell you about, but first,
here's our brand new S.T.L Logo:



Now for the latest updates:



- Everyone
will be told (via Swapnote) which Team they
are a member of on April 5th

-
I'm still deciding on how Topic Tokens will be earned,
but it will all be finalized come the start of the season.

- I should mention that the bottom 5 team names will be
dropped from the list when voting ends on April 5th

- I'm thinking of renaming League 1 - Master League
and League 2 - League Hyrule. To make it sound
less bland. Any thoughts on what I could name the
Team League?

Looks very likely I'll get my first choice team, thanks to other peoples questionable tastes.

if each team has four then you could call it the Four Swords League, sticking with the Zelda theme.

Also looks like I'm pretty much destined to be on Team Snake since Team Meta is no more and Team Koopa is way to popular.
I find this very... TASTY.
Also my avatar is of Foxhound, just a random note.

Gah, I was going to sign up yesterday but put it off.

I'm still interested if anyone drops out - though I can't seem to attach photos to swapnotes. Do you have to unlock that option?

Post S.T.L Update (05/04/12)

Hi Players:

Some big updates to tell you about:



Here's an explanation of what the Coin Shop is:




- Every player starts the season with 3 Coins
-
More coins can be earned by answering questions
and unlocking achievements amongst other things.
- Coins can be spent at the shop on the following:

1. Learning how to unlock achievements
2. Solo Items that can help you (I can't say more)
3. New backgrounds for your Mii Picture
4. Territory on the Wuhu Island map.
* some spots also contain hidden treasure *

- The Coin Shop opens on Sunday, April 8th
-
Visit the 1st page of the thread to see the shop,
Wuhu Island, revamped League Tables etc.

( Click Here to go to First Page )

are right. I'm busy sending the Team Notification
Swapnotes
at the moment.

of the thread to see how good an idea I thought it was =)

@Hogo: Hey Hogo, hope you got my Swapnote Letter earlier?
Just got your Mii Pic. You've been added to the League Hyrule
Table
which you can view by clicking (Here) and scrolling down.


That's all for now guys...

The coin idea sounds cool. And I was wrong about getting my first choice team, it didn't even get enough votes to be in the top 10. Oh well.

Eagerly anticipating that blue light!
