*****KatKwiz! - April 22 - Warning! Numbers!*****

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
KatKwery: For the first time in a while, nobody used the word of the day, game(s). The other words not selected by Alley (Persi is in jail), were animate, points, same, equal. 1400 points today.

Every time that nobody has been able to answer the KatKwiz question of the day in the past, there were numbers involved.

On the surface, today's question sounds like an easy question, but is it?

The KatKwiz that you are looking at right now is the number ____________KatKwiz ever posted.

Since this is one of my infamous number games, I expect no correct answer.

The KatKwiz that you are looking at right now is the number 188 KatKwiz ever posted.

Congratulations!

There are a couple of reasons I suspected nobody would get the correct answer. There was an older KatKwiz that I ran last year that ran 73 times. This number is hard to find unless you do a search on all strings I have started. But the second gotcha was that this year my computer was broken down for three days, thus subracting from the 113 days this year. 73+110=183.

KatKwery: (1400 points)
How long do you think KatKwiz can keep coming up with new questions? How many points do you think KatKwiz has awarded altogether? How long do you think KatKwiz will last this time? How long before KatKwiz runs out of points? Did you like KatKwiz better when it was paying out 4,000 points a day?

the katkwiz cats are too clever too run out!
i think it will run for approximately 2-3 years IF it was too run out
and as long as everybodys Hospitality and good nature carrys on the katkwiz points will be forever more!
i wasnt around for the old katkwiz but its not the points that matter its the participating and learning new things that matters

I wasn't around when Katkwiz was paying out 4,000 points a day. I think Katkwiz will be around for quite some time.

I think KatKwiz questions will keep coming, you just might have to get a little creative at times to keep them new. As long as people are generous and donate points to KatKwiz there will always be points to give away. I'm guessing KatKwiz has given out 4-500,000 points already! I am new to this though, so I wasn't around when you could get 4,000 points a day.

I just got started going to KatKwiz. I'm not really in it for the points, but it is exciting when I do win, LOL! 365.25 new questions for a year is a lot of questions. I would guess you would run out of questions before points! At least I would. I would say you've awarded about 600,000 points so far. Just a wild guess!

I hope the cats can come up with questions for a long time!! This is fun!

I have no idea how many points have been awarded so far, but I'm sure it's a pretty high number!

I must not have been here when the payout was 4K/day. That is a lot!!

I'm happy that you sent out those PMs a while back to get some of us newbies involved!

Eventually of course there will be some redundance, just reworded. KatKwiz will last as long as the points last. KatKwiz has given out more than a quarter million points to date. (Don't worry, I won't make you get your calculators on this.) My old policy was to only give interest points away, so I would imagine that the points will run out some day without a further cut in payments, but I hereby state that there WILL be a 100,000 point payout to the KatKwery superbowl winner. Personally, I enjoyed giving out the maximum points possible and never worry about running out.

I dont think any of us want the katkwiz to ever stop, so therefore I dont think you'll run out of points because we'll just have to start donating points to you! And I think your infanite wisdom will prevent you from ever running out of questions! It doesn't matter how many points katkwiz gives out, we just love to play!! I think I would play for nothing just to have winner of the day!! However the 3500 points you were giving out each katkwiz gave me a great foundation on points, and for that Im very greatfull!! This game is too wonderfull to stop!! Im not sure how many points you've given out! Quite a few I imaine! I hope you dont run out of points!! People will have to go to the bank take their points out and make donations to you to keep ya going!!

I wanted to add that I love to play quizzes no matter if there are points awarded or not!
post #21 of 22
I would've guessed the over 500,000 points have been given out so far. 2000 points times 183 days is 366,000.... and that doesnt take into account that 2000 points is the REDUCED payout - by half!

I agree with others, I think that [eventually] the questions will run out before points do, although I have confidence in the Kats I personally look forward to the Kwiz everyday, but usually I am too late to answer/participate, so recently I am more motivated by the Kwery and the SuperBowl!! I also enjoy the opportunity it provides us to chat amongst each other and learn things about the site. I think that as long as you have participants and a volunteer to run it... the Kwiz has settled in for a long haul!

I wasnt here when the Kwiz was paying out the big bucks, or when the interest rate was higher... I think I came back just as it was all changing.But I am not really here for the points, although that is a bonus

I also liked when you posted the winners standings for the SuperBowl a few Kwizes back... even though I was on the bottom of the list it was a great incentive Not just the 100,000 points, but the for the ring!

What the heck would I do with so many points?

Now if only I was some kind of Psycho - errr - I mean Psychic - so I could read your mind and figure out the darned secret word everyday!

Yikes, maybe if we earned points by number of words posted in a post, instead of just per post, I would be rich.... I guess I do have a tendancy to run-on sometimes...

I think it's not enough adult interaction at home!

Try being stuck with 3 kids all day 24/7 most of the time with no one but them to talk to!! I look forward to this and just wish I could get here at the right time to answer! If I do get the secret word its long after the other players have done so!! Persi & Alley have done a great job keeping this going, and I hope that it stays forever!! I love learning new stuff about the cat site too!! I have learned such interesting things that I didnt know before! Knowledge is power (or so they say!) and I would like to keep my smarts up!
I mean, how many other sites have places where you can learn and have fun while doing so! Reading the rules and how to's and announcments just isn't as good! This way, we learn things we need to know to find our ways around the site while having a blast and maintaining conversation with people we have something in common with! The answers may be hard sometimes, especially the math ones, but everyone has fun playing, and its the best to log on to the cat site and find a PM from Persi & Alley saying you have recieved a donation of however many points!!

And Im competitive too, so that always helps! LOL
