LearnedLeague: We Have The Technology

As you may have heard, LearnedLeague suffered a catastrophic server failure on May 5. Their hosting company lost the whole site, with no backup. (Exclusive documentary video footage of LL's hosting company.) Fortunately, Thorsten is a smart fellow, and had his own local backups, and he has now rebuilt almost the whole site. Private Rundle rosters didn't survive, though. You need to re-register for the MetaFilter Private Rundle if you want in for LL77. [more inside]

LearnedLeague signup roundup 2018

Registration is open for LL76, the 76th quarterly season of LearnedLeague trivia. Membership is by invitation only, but plenty of Mefites are members and are totally willing to invite you, right here in this thread. Each weekday for 25 days, you answer 6 trivia questions and assign points based on how hard you think your head-to-head opponent will find them. Here are some questions from last season. Referrals are open through February 6; registration closes February 14; LL76 starts on Tuesday, February 20. [more inside]

LearnedLeague roundup 2

It's been 2 1/2 years since the last "Hey, who's on LearnedLeague, and who wants to be?" post. Some folks got invited then, and some folks (like me!) got invited later, as a result of posting in that thread. Referrals for LL73 are open, so: Who's on LL, and who isn't but wants to be? [more inside]

LearnedLeaguers, sound off!

In the recent Mefi thread about LearnedLeague, we had a decent number of joint members. I thought I'd create a space where we could say hello! [more inside]

MetaFilter vs. Reddit 3 in 3-D

It's that time once again--the London Mefite contingent is going to do battle tonight with Reddit in an epic pub quiz. It's a smaller crowd this time, with only nine of us confirmed, but it's still enough to do two teams. Come by and cheer us on, or do so here. As usual, one of us will be posting updates at the halfway mark and afterward.

Reddit trivia rematch

Good morning westerners! In just over four hours, our Trivial Special Forces will reassemble in central London to do battle with our arch-nemeses, Reddit, in a re-match after we mopped the floor with them last time. Current IRL thread here. Any MeFites in London are encouraged to come along and participate and/or cheer us on. Live updates in this thread will follow I'm sure, though we will go dark during the quiz. Tally-ho! [more inside]

I'll take "Nerdy Outings" for $1000, Alex.

Considering how many of us wear glasses, I'm pretty sure we should be fielding a pub trivia team here in Houston. Let's have a meetup and see how it goes! Maybe it will be a fun night of nerdery. Maybe it will become an institution. We'll never know until we try. [more inside]

In my mind, I've gone to Carolina, and in May, I'll be there in person.

So, I'm going to be in Raleigh, NC, May 22 to May 29. Do any MeFites in the the triangle want to have a pub night sometime that week, and if so, may I join you?

Interesting gimmick, but not sustainable

I understand the point of the Enduring Freedom casualty count thread and admittedly admire its style. But I'm not sure trivia questions are appropriate as Metafilter posts, if only because it necessitates moderating one's own thread, which we are generally discouraged from doing here.
