Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

Suggestions/Brainstorming what we might want to ask: Was he (super) rich? Did his job involve a lot of sitting? Did his job involve computers? Did his job involve animals? Was he loved for doing his job? Was he a staunch republican/democrat? Was he generally known internationally (not just the US)?...

Re: Adjudicator bug?

Kestas, did you catch this from the global chat of this game?
"2. When I put in the Pause vote a couple of days ago, the game also entered a Draw vote, which I did not enter."

It reminds me of a serious error that I experienced back in 2009:

Re: Adjudicator bug?

Wow! This does look like a misadjudication to me too.

Have you tried double-checking that webDip still passes all the DATC tests?

Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

Hmm, I'm not sure and maybe totally wrong, but there is something on my radar the whole time and I'm not sure if that fit ... but Texas and the region is still considered Southern US and the stuff, right, so maybe, maybe it was some sort of Cowboy or Texas Ranger, or someone from the wild west, but...

A famous southerner who isn't military, sportsman, KKK (criminal) or entertainer, and was never portrayed in film?

What civil rights' activists haven't been portrayed in film? MLK was. Loving was. Rosa Parks was.
Also not a politician – meant to mention that.

Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

I know that that was probably just a typo, but the Mexican-American War took place before the Civil War.

I thought about the Civil War because Confederate generals would be best remembered in the Southern region of the United States.

Re: XX Questions, Game LXII

I considered Clarence Darrow, but he has been portrayed in film and is not associated with a region.

I wonder if somebody from the Civil War may fit.

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

He is famous in his own right, mind you. Not many 18th Century military commanders regularly get articles written about them today in the popular press. The main issue was that you all focused on the 17th Century. Which articles? In which publications? Just sticking to your country, try searching f...

Re: XX Questions, Game LXXI

But I understand, of course. British people are very sensitive when it comes to remembering national humiliations. ;-) I should be pursuing a PhD in Iberian studies to even begin comprehending why, as a British person, I should feel national humiliation. On top of that, the event took place before ...

Primary sources, of course, wouldn't be the secondary sources that I referred to: Did he die of natural causes?
