Once upon a time, playing brainoffs would affect your fact count. Then things changed and the only way for you to boost (or bust) your fact count was through playing Fact Master.

Well, up here in Factacular Towers, we've had a change of heart. We figured, if you know something, you know something.  Should it matter whether you know it in a brainoff or in Fact Master?

We've scratched our heads and can't think of any reason why it should. So, it's back in and there's no need to work away in a corner of the Factopedia on your own to improve your fact count.

There is, indeed, a Factacular Towers. 
 

Think more in the line of Fawlty Towers than Trump Tower, mind.

If you had a Minnie Cooper, I would beat it to death with a stick, just for you.

There may be a bit of confusion...

You might have noticed that your fact count doesn't necessarily increase by 10 when you get all 10 questions right in a brainoff.  That's because your fact count is only increased when you correctly answer a question which you haven't previously answered or which you got wrong last time.

There's another side to this too. If you answer a question incorrectly when you answered it correctly last time, your fact count will actually decrease.

Boy, now I'm confused...

Hi Big Doc, I have not been able to play any of the Kevvie brainoffs and most of the regular ones this week. The subject comes but no questions--HELP.

I've temporarily removed this modification to the site.  I don't think it has anything to do with Lucy's problem but it may have caused a problem where the last person to complete a brainoff wasn't counted in the final scores.

I'll get it back as soon as I'm sure it's not causing any problems.

That was the way it was way back when, though, Doc.  One removed when you preivously got it correct,

Yes, HB, I know thanks.

I was explaining it for the benefit of folks who aren't quite as old as the site and time itself.

Hey Doc .... you going to kick start this mod again?  I think that it's a great way to know whether a player is gaining or losing knowledge as we play quizzes.  Adding facts through Fact Master is not as much fun as participating in the quizzes and they should count in our fact counts.

Yes, Seve, I will put it back in.  I've been a little bit busy lately so I haven't had time to look into the effects it may be having on the completion of brainoffs (that is, the last person to play a brainoff being left off the scoreboard).

A pass button?  Hang on, didn't I do that one already?

Sorry - it took longer than I expected but this change is back in now. 

Your fact counts should now change according to your performance in brainoffs.
