Æthelred II, the Unready, 978 - 1013, and again a year later from 1014 until his death in 1016. Almost exactly 1000 years ago, folks!

Joke is his name meant "well-advised", and "unready" in those times meant the opposite, "ill-advised". They were 'avin a larf... LOL

@pgn 

As you can't post again until someone else does, I will just add a bit of info on my first choice Edgar 1st the Peaceful. He was just 16 when he became King of England. He was crowned in Bath. His wife (whose name I have forgotten Lol) was also crowned, making her the the first Queen of England

Re: THURSDAY QUIZ 6 June 2019

Well.... I am sticking to the rules and simply giving @pgn  a chance to post again.

If 'we all win', who cares? If you add more info to yours and get more credits Rich, I won't give a damn. As everyone said before it's a bit of fun. The only difference is, it ain't a copyfest and certainly a much better format. tongue winking

Who the hell knows? I'm not the quizmaster, though I am following the rules.

Go and ram in a bit more info on your two submissions and see. rofl

I could add a bit more to one of yours, but I'm not allowed to Dance

Re: THURSDAY QUIZ 6 June 2019

PS In all honesty I doubt it's loads of credits for 'as much info as you can ram in'.

Otherwise we would all be writing lengthy tomes (if we knew a lot) Confused

Re: THURSDAY QUIZ 6 June 2019

Morning guys.

An interesting and relevant discussion on credits @Cleoriffand @MI5 .

Credit is awarded for additional information given on each post, not for each piece of information given - otherwise, as @Cleoriff pointed out a post could be filled with info to score extra credits [for exmple, if I was playing and the subject was The Beatles, I could fill the whole forum with biographies to score 1000s of points]. The additional information should be relevant and apply to the answer to receive credit.

 

Thank you @Cleoriff for posting additional info to one of your answers. There is nothing wrong in that [although it does not get extra credit] but allows another player [in this case @pgn ] to give a second answer. This was how I intended the Thursday Quiz to run should this arise.

 

I hope that this helps clarify credits and thank you for bringing this to my attention slight smile

 

@pgnAs mentioned, you can now submit your second answer.

 

Any other players who wish to join in may do so and have until 12 noon tomorrow [Friday] to give their answers.

 

I hope that everyone finds the new format fun, even though it maybe requires a little bit of thought to come up with the answers and additional information.
