I am happy to announce some great updates to the aircraft quiz section! I have tried to work on some of the shortcomings discussed in the previous thread and can present the following new features:
- The competition mode is on a time limit. You get a maximum of 10 seconds to consider each photo (if you do a photo faster than 10 sec, the time left will be added to the next photo and so on). It also contains a nifty countdown application to make the situation extra stressful
- If you are really good you will get on the high score list! There's a separate high score list for each category and for each selection of number of photos (so the high score list for category cockpit with 20 photos is not the same as the one with 50 photos).
- The bottom of the quiz index page will show the most recently updated high score list and in the future it will show many more high score lists.
The quiz competition feature is currently for First Class members only. As First Class Members surf Airliners.net without ads, the pages will load faster and it will be less unfair as lots of time can be lost when the ads are loading. Also, this is in accordance with my concept for the First Class Membership: Basic features in all sections are free for all but you need a membership for the extra value features. You can all upgrade to First Class for as little as $5 (for one month of membership) and when you stop paying, your membership is automatically restored to your current one (like Premium, Photographer etc). Try it out!
So check out the quiz section!
I hope you enjoy it!
PS. I used my own username when testing the system (just clicking randomly) so you'll notice that I'm topping a lot of lists with really poor results.
