What do you guys think I should make the time limit?
Oct 26th, 2009 at 20:48 GMT
Can you check your link? I'm getting a different answer on "O" (#111, ahead of #120) and "R" (#20 ahead of #22).
Oct 26th, 2009 at 21:00 GMT
That is what it was on the 1990 cencus, on the 2000 census the "R" name is #9 and the "O" name is #94.

I think the time limit is about right but you could go up to 10 minutes to give people more time to guess. I was ready to give up when time ran out at 8 though. Great idea for a quiz.

^^ well phrased. time limit is perfect... got 14 and had a lot of fun!

A fun and good game, helpful for guessing random names on quizzes where you don't know anybody.
Oct 29th, 2009 at 20:02 GMT
I was personally surprised that "Ochocinco" was not the most common "O" name.
Oct 29th, 2009 at 20:05 GMT
One of those quizes that makes you feel really dumb when you see the answers

I think we could probably do with another minute or two. Hope this one gets verified by sporcle!

You should probably change your link to the original source:

Nov 3rd, 2009 at 01:57 GMT
I guess the time is fine, you could change it to 3 days and I STILL wouldn't have gotten a couple of them :) Thanks for this, it's fun, I hope Sporcle publishes it...
