Bible Bee Live Quizzes

Time Posted on July 21, 2011 User Alex Watt

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.

@Alex: I'm not sure I get one thing. You put a list of "Week 7" "Week 8" and so on. Are we to click the "Week 7" for this week's quiz and "Week 8" for next week's quiz? Thanks.

EDIT: Thanks, Alex, for answering my question!

@SBG: Congratulations on reaching 100 memorized verses. Yesterday, you were 1 ahead of me on the leaderboard...now you are like 15 ahead! Good job!

I have started a Facebook event called "Live high tech Bible Bee Quiz Fridays at 4:00pm EDT" at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=140680996014270. If any of you are on Facebook, you can invite your Bible Bee friends and other Scripture enthusiasts among your friends to attend.

Bethany - That is correct, you use the appropriate link depending on the week.

Super401 - Scoring is automatic! :) We are always glad to hear when people plan to attend, though it is not required at all, especially with the new system.

Phil - Thanks for doing that. At this point in my life, I do not use Facebook, but I know it is a great way to spread the word about things like this, so I really do appreciate you helping by creating that.

I'm guessing most don't have Facebook, which is a good thing. I am not in any way promoting Facebook. I am just putting it out there as a tool I use that others can also use to spread the word about these awesome quizzes. I will be using other methods as well. Alex, is there any limit that can crash the system, or make the quizzes difficult to administer?

Mr. Walker - Even if people do have it, they can use it to promote things like Memverse...like you are doing. You never know, maybe we'll have more poeple join because of what you posted about on Facebook!

@Andy, Mr. Walker, Alex:

To move up from level 5 you have to refer a new user. So, I referred my oldest brother. He joined and everything (a new user....Yay!) and put me as his referrer, but I still didn't move up from that level? BTW, that was the last thing that I had to do before I could move up. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Alex Watt

Phil - I've emailed you about the system capacity and am hoping we'll be fine. :)

Bethany - Is he showing up under your "Referrals" page (beneath Account tab)? If he is, then I would just try one more thing: go back to your Account Dashboard and see if it took you up a level. Sometimes it just needs to be reloaded... If that doesn't help, then I would double-check that you got all the quests done. Let us know how it goes.

I saw a chat message from Christian Alexander saying that he was having trouble with the quizzes. Christian, which browser are you using? If you are not using Firefox, I would recommend downloading it and giving that a try.

Also saw a message from Ashley that she couldn't see chats. I would wait for about 15 seconds, then if nothing happens, try refreshing your page.

I accidentally got cut off in the middle of the quiz, I couldn't "chat" there after a while, some of the verses didn't even come from Week 7, to my knowledge, and Google Chrome isn't working very well for me. Yikes...

I use Internet Explorer. I did question #1, and waited for it to go to #2. But it froze. So I refreshed, (sorry, I know I wasn't supposed to) and the page came up the same way it looks when a quiz hasn't started yet. My chat didn't work for a while either. The scoreboard didn't work at all.

I don't know if i can get permission to download FF or GC either.

We are having another quiz at 5 PM EDT. If you had problems and were using Internet Explorer, I suggest downloading Mozilla Firefox for your web browser by clicking on this link: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/fx/. Then click, "Get Firefox".

Thank you, Alex, for all your dedication to making this work. These quizzes are so helpful. I had a few issues: I wasn't able to chat; I would type it in and press send but it never showed up, even after I tried several times. I came in late but that was my own fault, and it seemed to handle that fine; it just let me jump right in. And also, I didn't have to sign in when the quiz started, like I did last time, so that was an improvement. Thanks! :)

We had to call off the 5 PM EDT quiz due to what appeared to be hacking. I don't expect it to happen again. Thanks for understanding and look forward to seeing you all next Friday at 4 PM EDT.

Dear EVERYONE who did the quiz at 3 this afternoon,

I was the fake hacker. I did it by changing my name in profile to your names. I did it as a joke and did not mean harm. So now I realize that it is wrong and can cause big problems. I am so sorry for pretending to be a hacker, I won't do it again. Please forgive me. I was very mean to do that.

Ashley - I have asked those same questions and the answer to the first one is - a verse is classified as memorized when the interval for reviewing it has grown to over a month. and the answer to your second question is - No, you cannot make a verse memorized ... you have to "wait for memverse to classify it as memorized :)
Hope this helps

*snickers* @BrookeNicole--that IS Georgie Henley from the Chronicles of Narnia movies! :) She has said before that she is a big fan of... well, either the movies or the actor, I can't remember which. So none of us know what she REALLY looks like.. yet. :)

Rachel - It will stay pending until you convert the verses to learning.

Ashley - Like Rachel said, the interval must be over a month for it to be "memorized", which of course means it will take about a month for the ones you already know to be marked "Memorized". I remember it seemed like a long time for me at first, but I see the benefit to it now.

Thanks to everyone who explained the problems they were having.

I thought you all would like to know that we are working through the bug with the scoreboard and such that vburk, Ashley, and others have reported. We just tried doing a bit more testing with Internet Explorer and realized that one of the code functions we were using for the scoreboard is not supported by IE. Other browsers may not support this function either. It is called to update the scoreboard, which happens right after the first question. Some browsers, though, like Firefox, worked fine... I suspect that when this error was hit, other things stopped working as well for some of you, including chat. Things are starting to make sense. I am optimistic that the problem will be gone for next week's quiz. Thanks for giving details.

BTW to everyone who's accounts seemed like they were getting hacked....
I had a dream last night that it was the next Bible Bee Quiz (on the 29th) and we were all chatting...and then I saw something under MY NAME that I did not type......."Are you ready?" and then Sarah's Bible Bee account said "Yes!" Then all of our computers froze, then the whole Memverse website changed to an eerie gray color and then pops up some top news stories.....the website was called "Memverse? No way! NEWS!!!" (the chat section was still there) then someone ( i forget who it was) messaged "we did it!!!" and then all of our accounts were deleted and then all of our computers blew up! Memverse became a new website that if you visited it it would blow your computer up!!!!!
All in a night's sleep. Great. Hope it doesn't really happen ;)
have a wonderful Sunday

I wish I had dreams like that (and could remember them). :)

Sorry, this has nothing to do with anything, but when I tried to add John 13:3-14 to my list of memory verses, but it seemed like it wasn't there. The reason is that I typed in MATTHEW 13:3-14. So now there is a Matthew 13:3 verse in NIV that is actually John 13:3. It is still etitable, but when I tried to erase what I had written, the screen just said "We're sorry, but something has gone wrong." I'm sure somebody is able to fix the verse, right?

SavedByGrace - I believe the reason you got the error is because you tried clicking "Edit" without anything in the textarea. The best thing to do would be to Edit it again and make the text of "Matthew 13:3" the right NIV text (instead of nothing). Basically, there is now a verse for this in the database, and you can't delete it out of the database. So please fix it by putting in the correct text, and then go ahead and delete the verse from your account. That way, it will correctly be in the database for any NIV user who wants to learn it at some point, but it will no longer be assigned to your account. Thanks! :)

@Rachel Crosswhite--that seems to happen to me too, but I think I have it figured out. Sometimes, for some reason, when you click on the Blog tab, it brings you to old blog posts, and it seems like new posts. When you go back again, it only shows the new blog posts (like the one we're commenting on now) and it seems like the other ones have been erased, but they are merely farther back in the blog history. But if you find something wrong with this advice, don't be surprised--I have a record of doing that and having Alex, Andy, or someone else having to correct me. :)

Rachel, you can count me in for memorizing 1 PETER with you guys. Do you have any time frame of when everyone wants to finish. Around the end of November each year, I lead a world wide group memorizing a short book of the Bible (or a group of around 100 verses) at the pace of 1 verse per day to give some Scripture memory in the Bible Bee off season. Last year we did 1 JOHN and the year before that 1 TIMOTHY. This upcoming year the leading vote getters are JAMES and 2 TIMOTHY.

Bethany, I tend to be a little optimistic, but I predict that memverse hits 100,000 by September 15th and hits 150,000 by the end of 2011.

All you Bible Bee guys are doing a great job spreading the excitement about memverse. But don't forget to do your best preparing and mastering your own Bible Bee verses and studying the 1 PETER sword study.

Bethany: I've done the Bible Bee since it began, so this is my third year. I've made it to Nationals each time. The first year it had nothing to do with scripture memory (I probably memorized around 5% of the verses, and everything to do with bible knowledge (the written test was weighted pretty heavily the first year). Last year I actually did all of the verses, so... What about you?

But now doing it, it seems not that hard. This is the first time that I had actually done this much Bible memory. Before, I would memorize about 3 to 4 verses a week....now I'm doing three times that amount each day!

@Simeon--sorry it took me so long to get back to you. All you have to do to get those other symbols is type numbers in the hundreds, not just the tens. Also, I have never been to the Nationals. This is the first year that I am really trying hard to study. (And don't give up with memorizing verses just because you are behind!)
@Bethany--no, Alexander is our last name. I don't completely see how that would lessen our Internet safety though... Also, I think that Rachel Crosswhite wanted us to memorize 1 Peter AFTER the Bible Bee. Trying to do it before the locals would be a little--well, actually a lot--difficult. :) Oh, and I think that Matthew Minica is a Junior.

It's great that so many people are attempting Rachel Crosswhite's challenge. But just for anyone who wants to... is anyone who hasn't volunteered already willing to memorize the Bible with me? I've lowered my goal of 100 people to just twenty, and we have fourteen already, so... anyone willing to take up the challenge?
@Josiah DeGraaf and Marie Morris--wow! You've made it to Nationals twice too? Oh, I wish I had done that. But I'm really trying harder to memorize this year. And I'm also working hard on my Sword Study, so I'll probably do well on the written test too. Wouldn't it be cool if some of the Memverse members met each other at the Nationals? That would be so awesome...

Yes, that would be very neat if we got to meet people from Memverse at Nationals. We just have to continue studying and working hard at it!

I'd like to keep memorizing the Bible Bee verses...finish them all (i'm TT and would like to do the NT verses after the Locals) I think it would be great to keep memorizing (it IS great) so we will still be in the habit of doing it so it won't be so hard to pick up again next year in the BB
~SBG - It's totally alright....go grateful you aren't offended :) Our 1 PETER PROJECT number is growing!
~Bethany (i always start to type your name with an A after the E) This is so wonderful! Praise the Lord! Thanks for keeping the names for the 1 PETER PROJECT updated :)
~BBJ11 - Praise the LORD that you only have 50 cards left! I have about 35+ card left (but then I'm doing TT)
~Alex - is it okay if I create a topic on the Feedback section for the 1 PETER PROJECT? Thank you :)

Here is the current list of names for the 1 PETER PROJECT
-Rachel Crosswhite (Me)
-SavedByGrace
-Bethany
-Mr Walker
-Matthew Minica
-Josiah DeGraaf
-Marie Morris
-Eunice Sopia
-BibleBeeJunior11
-Ranch4Christ
= 10 people

What a blessing! I am so blessed that all of you would like to join me in this challenge :) May the Lord bless you all as you hide his word in your heart.

BTW I am thinking of changing my name (om Memverse) to "Rachel4Him" - then you don't have to call me Rachel Crosswhite all the time (it's so long to type out) what do you think?

have a great day! (can't wait for the next quiz! hopefully it will work for me)

About a week ago one of my friends was in the back of a truck and the truck accidentally backed into a small car crushing his right foot underneath the tail gate and against the bumper of the other car.

Just a quick note that we've worked on the scoreboard issue which we think was causing some of you to not be able to see any more questions after the first one and believe we have resolved it. If you had trouble last week with the quiz, it would be particularly helpful if you could try again this week to see if the issues have been resolved. We also figured out why the chat wasn't allowing colons, so now you should be able to smile again in your messages. :) Thanks for your patience and hope to see you at the quiz!

Thanks for the quiz last night, Alex and Andy! It was great! And guys, do you really like the blue triangle? I never liked it. But I found out that I'm not allowed to put my picture here, so maybe I'll keep it. But maybe it would be a better idea to just change it to something else, like Simeon, BBJ11, or Zachary Baas. But if you like it THAT much, maybe I won't go through the trouble of doing that.

SBG - This is my personal opinion...I really like it :) But, of course, it your pictures, so you can do whatever you want to do with it. Did you do your reading yesterday?

@Bethany--all right, I guess I'll keep the picture. And yes, I did my reading yesterday and today. It is so amazing to get that much variety in so little time! I had no idea that reading the Bible could be so... exciting! Did you do your reading yesterday and today yet? And who should my next person be...? How about Josiah DeGraaf? Did you read your portion of the Bible yet? :)

@BBJ11--I was talking about the ten-chapters-of-the-Bible-a-day project I suggested in the post one down from this one (it was originally going to be seven chapters, but a link Alex suggested made me change it to ten). You don't have to do ten a day, just tell me if you are reading at least two chapters a day (I just made up that rule, but it seems fair), I will add you to my list. If ten chapters seems like way too much, check out the second link Alex suggested there. It might change your mind--I know it did mine! :)

@Rachel Crosswhite/Rachel4Him/Rachel Irene--As you can see, it doesn't really matter to me what your name is as long as it isn't too bulky for the scoreboard at the Friday quizzes. But if I had to give my personal opinion, I like Rachel Crosswhite best, because that's what I'm used to typing. :)

@Josiah DeGraaf--okay. Completely fine with me, as long as you get it done, or tried to. :)

Simeon and Zachary - Regarding the tag cloud: Please try pressing CTRL + F when you are on the Tag Cloud page. Then type your "search term" in the box. This just uses your browser's built in searching ability. It will help you find all the occurrences of a word on that page. For now, I think that makes more sense than a special search engine...

@SBG - Bible Bee is keeping me busy enough, plus Rachel Irene/Crosswhite/Rachel4Him challenged us to memorize 1 Peter. BtW, Rachel whatever!!!, I will do that after Bible Bee is TOTALLY OVER.

Matthew - I agree Psalm 117 is a great Psalm. There is an urban legend that it is in the middle of the Bible.

It's been great to have you on the Live Quizzes for the Bible Bee. We are actually working to open the Live Quizzes system to others, but we're not ready for that yet. We've also decided that the blog is not suitable for quizzes, which is why we're building a new system (running quizzes on the blog is difficult with some new blog comment technology we've implemented and also can overload the commenting system). We appreciate your patience as we ask that you refrain from quizzes on the blog... You and others will one day be able to use a great Memverse Live Quizzes system!! We're getting there. Thanks Matthew. Hope to see you tomorrow at 4 PM EDT.

I'll try to attend the live quiz tomorrow; I'll be in the middle of a twelve hour trip as part of a three day trip to Yellowstone, but we should have internet access in the car (because of a special internet router), so doing the quiz should be a fun excursion on the long trip to get me from being bored :)

EDIT: About the middle chapter in the Bible, after some quick googling, I found that there is much debate between whether Psalm 117 or 118 is the middle chapter... I don't know why it would be so difficult to discover as it's a pretty black/white question but... *shrugs* I didn't feel like going through the researching to figure out which one was actually correct though...

Hannah Cupcake - That is understandable. We are doing some review, though, so if you decide you'd like to do it, that's fine.

Sarah - Right; verses anywhere from Week 1 - 9, mainly Primary.

Matthew - No need to apologize. OK, glad you should be able to come!

Wow. Did you actually see that? I could not see what I was posting!

I am on the live quiz. It is not starting on it and is acting like the quiz hasn't started yet. I even tried to reopen it in a new tab and it still would not work. It may be that I do't have the latest version of Google Chrome, but I don't see anymore the link where you can download the latest version. But again, that may not be the problem.

I usually add the questions Thursday evenings, but none of you knew that until Andy added the feature that says how many questions are in the quiz. :) Didn't mean to scare anyone. :)

Phil, Jamie, and Hannah - Don't worry about missing the quiz, though we certainly hope that you all and others can participate next time.

Jamie - Sorry that you didn't realize there was another quiz. We almost always have a second quiz, so perhaps if you're able next time you can wait a few minutes after the first one ends to see if we decide to hold another one.

Only one more quiz to go and then we have the Local Bible Bees on Saturday, August 27th, across the United States!

Sorry, Rachel (not Crosswhite), that you're not as far as you'd like to be. But keep trying, and God will allow you to do as much as He'll let you. Try your best, and you'll do well!

I have a few comments about the last quiz.

Ok, so it worked really well for me considering I was tethering off a phone, my laptop battery died in the middle of the 2nd quiz, and then I used my iPod...there were really no problems on the tech side, only on my side. One thing that happened to everyone is that the first time, everything bogged down after the 2nd Q of the first quiz. Alex quickly fixed that. Thank you! :) I thought I had something else to say, but I must've forgotten.

Alex, Andy, Mr. Walker, Im really excited because after knowing html, and some CSS for a while, I am now taking Windows Programming (ugh, I'd rather do stuff on Mac's lol) doing C#, and after that, I plan on learning Ruby on Rails because I would LOVE to help you guys out! I really do enjoy programming. So, why not use it for God's glory, right? So, maybe in a year I'll be helping you guys out. :)

Also, I only have about 150 of my 800 verses memorized, and most of those are Primary. So, this week I am mostly just reading over the verses so that I'm familiar with them for the Written Test. I'm doing great in my Sword Study, though. Today I will do Week 12, Days 1 and 2, and then I'll be on track to finish! I am so happy since I only got to Week 5 last year! :)

I love this song, and hopefully everyone feels encouraged by it:

Sarah - we would love to have you join us in contributing to Memverse!! Any language you learn will improve your programming skills so nothing is wasted. Every programming language you learn takes half as long as the previous one. This is a long term project so you have plenty of time :)

Alex Watt

Sarah - Yes, that would be great! A lot of people who develop Ruby on Rails use Mac, so that part should work well. :) Since I don't have a Mac, I use Linux (works better for development than Windows).

Regarding the next Live Quiz for the Bible Bee on August 26 - If all goes as planned, the first 12 questions will be Primary Timothy, the next 5 will be Junior Timothy, and the last 3 will be Senior Timothy. Hopefully this will work better. I would like to post the scores in the comments at each of those marks so you can see scores from the first part with Primary Timothy verses, from the second part with Junior Timothy, and from the third part with Senior Timothy. I'm not sure if I'll be able to re-run the quiz on Friday, as we may be helping our Local Bee get setup... Thanks all and hope to see you at the quiz!

Since my family is hosting, we'll be at the church all day (leaving in a little bit), and last week I was at the church, and the internet wasn't that great. As long as I remember to bring my charger (forgot last week) I should be good. If worst comes to worst, I'll use my iPod again. :P Alex, the iPod worked! It just got overloaded a couple times and quit the browser, but I was able to get back in fairly quickly.

I am so happy to be able to learn a bunch of programming! I really want to learn Ruby on Rails to help you guys. When I do learn it, I'll be self-teaching myself lol. Well, that's probably how most people learn programming languages lol. I can't wait! :)

The Finale Bible Bee Live Quiz went well and I think it was encouraging to everyone. Thanks to everyone who came! I have been encouraged each week by seeing you all demonstrate diligence in your studies and grace and encouragement toward one another during the quizzes. It's been a lot of fun! I apologize for technical difficulties with ChampionBuilders that we were not able to resolve this time. If you are able to give us feedback on that, we would can try to help you through the Feedback or blog comments. (We could see your chat messages, but you couldn't see ours.)

Since the quiz was constructed with the first 12 questions being Primary Timothy, the next 5 Junior Timothy, and the last 3 Senior Timothy, I copied the scores at each of those segments. By the end of the quiz, we had 40 participants - praise God!

I hope you all do well at your Local Bees and see God's grace throughout this summer's study of His Word. Having His Word hid in our hearts is the greatest treasure of all - it is a means of His grace as He guides, strengthens, corrects, disciplines, encourages and nourishes us. To Him be the glory! One Bible Bee passage I've been thinking about recently is from 1 Peter 4:11 (not a memory verse, but part of the Sword Study), which says that "If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God." Let's ask God to help us do that tomorrow.

This was so much fun! Too bad I can't type very well. I knew the answer to most of the questions, but I kept misspelling words or forgetting to press submit in time.

But, hey, it was soooooooooo much fun! And, Alex, you were really encouraging and funny. Thanks so much to everyone who made this possible. You guys rock!

Thanks for the quiz, Alex! Also, where's the "Rest Schedule" button? Or do you have to be over-due so many to let it show up? I'm a little confused about that right now.

Bethany - If you have three times more verses due than Memverse thinks you should, then you should find the "Reset Schedule" button on the "Home" page under the "Memverse Today" tab. :)

Alex - how do I know if I have three times over-due on my account? I normally receive about 75 a day, and now I'm over-due about 305. It must not be three times over-due though, because I don't see the "Reset" button :)

I'm anxious to hear how you all did!

Bethany - Please refresh the "Home" page and try checking the "Memverse Today" tab again. If you still don't see the button, please let us know. Thanks. EDIT: Just realized that it's based off you having three times more verses than your minutes per day ("workload") would indicate, so it makes sense that it didn't give you the option...

Alex - I typed some of the verses in today, and so now I'm down to have 235 over-due. And again, I didn't see the button. You don't need to worry about it though, because I'll just try to get them all typed in before Wednesday :) Thanks for your help.

Will we be having quizzes for this year's Bible Bee or are there too few verses to do it?

@Matthew - Yes, we're going to be preparing for that soon. We're hoping to add a feature for multiple-choice questions. Look forward to seeing you and the others in a renovated quiz room sometime soon! :)

I can't wait to see what the quiz room looks like, and what the questions will be like. Those quizzes were a great help last summer. :)

If there's a feature for multiple-choice, then maybe we can use some of the questions my volunteers and I make up for the practice tests! Cool!
