post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I am trying something today. Right now, this is a one time thing. But, who knows?

Part A. is for premium members only!

Part B. is for non-premium members only!

A. Scroll down and look at the KatKwiz thread for yesterday.
I made the thread title appear different yesterday for the purpose of this quiz.
List each and every step that I performed to accomplish this. _____(one or more steps)_____.
(Thread title must be viewed in The Cat Lounge.)

B.In what city was the cat breed pictured below first shown?__________.

That's it! And, although there are two questions today (I wonder if we will have a Premium winner), you still get 2,000 points. The problem is going to be getting them to YOU. As you know, there is also, in addition to a Sammysmom, a Sammies'mom but I will be careful.

Answer: You just have to look for this one. You could have started with Cat Breeds above, but today's cat can be found by clicking on TheCatSite.com logo where you will find a special article on Siberian cats. Open the article and you will find the picture.

KatKwery

Would you like to have one of these cats?

I will answer first. When I was making up this quiz last night, DW came up behind me and saw this cat and announced to me that she wanted one. And I must admit, that article makes me want one bad! But it looks like I have a long wait ahead of me.

Bonus: How long does it take for one of these cats to mature? (A quick 700 points to the first person that answer this besides SammiesMom.)

The Siberian is a medium to large cat, taking approximately 5 years to mature.
That was a quick find!

I would...but I'd probably drive it crazy playing with it's gorgeous tail!!

You have been telling me the last few days that I did not quite have the right answer in your trivia thread, and now I get to return the favor! I also see you have colored my thread for today. Thanks! But today's winner must determine exactly which items were purchased. And give a step-by-step solution (so that our newer premium members can learn how to do this.) You can closely examine my thread for yesterday. (There is also a "cheating" way of doing this.)

Note to our non-premium members: You cannot see these things. Sign up today!

This portion of the contest is still open. There is a way for premium members to tell exactly what I did yesterday to change my thread appearance. I will be back in a couple of hours with my detailed answer. Remember, the guidelines state that you can only enter a contest once. (Unlike yours.)

C'mon premium members. I know you only make up a small percentage (a previous KatKwiz question) but surely one of you will step in before the contest ends.

Ok, I am a premium member but KatKwiz from the 17th does not show any different title to me.

You have to be looking at the thread from within The Cat Lounge, it does not show up different if you are viewing the threads with New Posts or Today's Posts. If you are not seeing the thread title in red, then we have uncovered some new information that periodically does come up with KatKwiz questions, and that is good, because we will get the answer.

What about you other members? (It does not matter if you are premium or not.) Do you see a red thread title for the March 17 KatKwiz when looking from within The Cat Lounge?
post #17 of 28
Yeah, I am looking at it from the Cat Lounge. Other ones that have different title colors (like the shamrock hunt) are showing for me but not the KatKwiz. Oh well, I guess I am never meant to get one of these right.
post #18 of 28
I think that the siberian pictured is a beautiful cat. That sure is a lot of fur though.. if I ever get a purebred I think it will be a Japanese bobtail.
I could see the red italicized title yesterday. This one is red now -- but it wasn't when I looked earlier.
post #19 of 28
Ok, either my Premium membership is not showing things correctly or something. I am going to give this a shot in more of a round about way.

I had to:
1- Go to vbPlaza Menu
2- scroll and select "Most Sold" (It did not show me it in a normal option)
3- Select "Colored Thread title" ( I see it should show in vbBux but that does not show for me though I am a premium member)
4- Enter Thread ID/Thread URL in and color desired
5- Purchase

Ok, don't know if that is right but it is what I had to do to find it.
post #20 of 28
Ohhhhh YAY!!! I won!

And yes, you deposited them to the right account!

Thank you!

Yes I do!! But somebody tell me why I don't see it under "new posts!"
I've tried to find out why all day and all last night, and it's driving me crazy!!

Most of my answer will not make sense if you are not a premium member. If you look at my thread from yesterday (March 17), you should see that it is highlighted in red. Since most of you see that, I am going to assume that this is a given.

Looking closely at my thread title you should be able to see that it is italicized. In fact, for part of the day yesterday I had it just italicized and then I added the shadow effect (not glow). So there are two things I did after posting. First I added the italics and second the shadow effect and I specified red.

Begin by clicking on vbPlaza. Then click on Most Sold. Here you will find a list of Most Sold Items. If you are not a Premium member, you will only see 4 items here. Premium members will see a list of 26 things to buy!

To buy something, choose from the left side what you want. I chose item 23, Italic Thread Title, which cost me 700 points. Later in the day I chose item 25, Shadow Thread Title Color for 1050 points. I also got to choose a color.

Both of these purchases will go away in seven days.

If there was any doubt as to what purchases I made, look in the extreme right column, Item History, and it gives you a record of who has bought what. In my case, I was the first person in history to ever to have a shadow thread!

OK folks, I have shown you two things you can do when you become a Premium Member. There are twenty more...

Note: Here is some very enlightening information that Fran (rapunzel47) supplied in the poll that I am taking today that is directly related to today's KatKwiz:

Something else to keep in mind about the various thread features and other enhancements which can be bought: you'll see them all if you are using IE, but you won't necessarily see them in other browsers -- some features, yes, but not all -- so some of those features are lost on those of us who prefer other browsers. It obviously doesn't bother me enough to make me use IE, but you could be spending for an effect we won't all see. Just a thought.

Just a suggestion, but why not post the questions for "Premium Members" in their lounge, rather than here, since their User CP is a bit different?

Yep, I'll do that too! There will be many different experiments in the future, all with the intent of steadily improving KatKwiz, based on the results. Since we did not have a premium member winner today, perhaps a once a week KatKwiz for just premium members (in the PL). I don't know - the cats are always coming up with new things.

Oh, the reason this was put in The Cat Lounge and not PL was to whet the appetite of our non-premium members to sign up and become one of us!

Oh well, I guess since I couldn't see it I missed in my guess that it was also italicized. At least I am learning things.

Well, I don't know. But this thread is seen by several Moderators each day and we always get an answer to things like this. If there is not an answer by in the morning I will pm Ryan (hydroaxe) because in KatKwiz history there has never been a question left unanswered!(I'm here to learn, too.)
