If this is ever offered again, maybe it would be a good idea to post the rules of it in one post [such as how many questions it will be] then ask one or two questions at different intervals during a multi-day period so more members could partcipate!

Many times, many members are not online, due to one fact alone... life!

Benefits of the above would be obvious more members would benefit, more hits would be generated so more attention to this site would benefit its growth as well as countless other benefits!
