We plan to continue holding Bible Bee Live Quizzes here on Memverse.com on Fridays at 4 PM EDT. (If for some reason we cannot hold a quiz, we will do our best to let you know as soon as we have that information available.) We are thrilled to have a new feature here that allows you to participate in these quizzes in real time with other Bible Bee participants. It is still a work in progress, but we believe some of the bugs have been worked out since last week's quiz.
If you plan to participate in any of these quizzes, please see this blog post: Preparing for Bible Bee quiz. It has important information about making sure your computer is ready for the quizzes.
During past quizzes, we have always had 15 questions: the first and last five were "give the reference" type questions (which are not part of the Bible Bee per se, but they are from Bible Bee passages and do reinforce the references in your mind), and five questions in the middle for you to "recite" (type) a Bible Bee passage. We have tried to keep these mostly Primary verses, with some Junior.
However, we are now entering the second season of Bible Bee quizzes - this is Week 7 in our studies - with a better quiz system and a need for more review, so the format of the quizzes may change. We plan to include more verses from previous weeks and hopefully more of these can be Primary and Timothy track verses.
On Friday, August 26, 2011, at 4 p.m. EDT, we will hold the Finale Bible Bee Live Quiz - the last one before the Local Competition on Saturday, August 27, held across the United States! Click here to enter that quiz. Bible Bee participants generally start to arrive about 10 minutes before the quiz opens. We hope you can make it and pray that God blesses you as you memorize His Word!
As a double-check to make sure your browser is ready for the quizzes, you could click the link for the last quiz and send a test message in the "Chat" section. If all is well, you should see your message.
Finally, if you experience any technical difficulties before or during the quiz, please let us know with our support forum: http://getsatisfaction.com/Memverse or in the comments below. You can spread the word by giving people the link to this post! We look forward to seeing you and your friends! Thanks.
