Post Muscis Quiz 510

Back to "Standard" format this week

Have fun

1. Questions posted on Monday. Answers posted whenever I feel like it.
2. 2 points for each Lyrics question – 1 point for the Title and 1 point for the artist. Trivia questions normally 1 point. Some trivia questions will ask for additional information, which is worth 1 point. Bonus points may be awarded additional relevant information (at my discretion). Artist/Album/Song of the week 1 point unless advised otherwise.
3. There is no Rule 3
4. Judge's decision final.
5. During the first 24 hours from the quiz being posted
you are allowed ONLY ONE POST (containing answers to as many questions as you like).
Additional posts (within the first 24 hours) will be ignored.
Edited posts (within the first 24 hours) will be disqualified.
Complete answers will take precedence over earlier partial answers
6. After the first 24 hours there is no restriction on posts (usual free for all rules). It is better not to edit your posts. If you want to add or correct something post a new reply. The points go to the first person to get the correct answer. "First" is taken as the posting time. If you edit a post, the editing time will be used as the posting time for all answers in the post.
