if there is an editor readin this please reply/quote saying "no. That idea sucks" Or "hey, that may be taken into consideration!"

I think that the 2005 geek quiz should be a crossword puzzle. So there are questions on teh Across and t5he DOwn and you have to fill it up and make it match. I think it would be cool. It would be a pain in the ass for you gusy making sure every letter matches up but it would be sweet.

Just an idea.


what do you people think? It would be different but it would force you to learn to complete the crossword.

And so people cant cheat, the sollution should be in the NEXT issue. I would personally love that.

Interesting idea but it wouldn't have much spark as far as a layout goes. Plus we like to put 50-60 questions in the Geek Quiz, so that may be tough to fit them all in. As always, thanks for the suggestion though :)

The year before lasts was the best IMO, the last one was just weird in questions and in grading :?

I agree, after taking the test and failing in the second round I flipped to the last page of the quiz and I was getting the correct answers left and right. And I found that most of those last questions were from the magazines, if you read most of the articles you would get most of the questions right. Maybe the authors were putting an emphasis on "If you read maxPC, you will be an elite geek." :wink:

I did enjoy looking at all the different items on the computer desks as the geek classification became more sophisticated. Overall, I really like the quiz and enjoy each one.
