RegisFan: Yep! The holidays are always slow at Millionaire Fans. Which is kind of a good thing, since it means people are spending time on the important things in life. Activity always picks up again in January.

FinalAnswer19: JCEurovision, RegisFan has nothing to do with that. This is a problem that has happened this time of year, every year with the RPGs and general low activity on the site.

JCEurovision: RegisFan, I am very disappointed at the low turnout given in RPG 105.

Since the Clocked Format was introduced, the contestant felt more pressure during the questions and the game became far more challenging. However, when the Shuffle format was brought in, the clock was removed in order to give the contestants a greater chance to think about the questions and possibly answer them correctly. With the syndicated format being the most recent one, the game was not entirely changed except for a stable money tree and the revival of 50:50. But what if the clock would make a return today? Well, here's my opinion on how it should be:
The clock should be set to 30 seconds on the first five questions and probably be disabled for the remaining questions, as those are the harder ones in terms of difficulty and add more pressure to the contestant, as he tries to figure out the answer. If the clock would be implemented in harder questions, the contestant could likely rather take a guess or walk away than use the time to think about the next move, since the clock would add the feeling of not having to waste any time - and while that is one of it's intentions, it would be quite risky to further pressure the contestant when a great amount is at stake.
Now, I would to discuss this certain topic with you, as well: Should the clock actually return to Millionaire? And in case it should, how would you implement the clock into the game?
There is a still a time limit. If the producers feel like you are taking too long to answer, they will come out and tell you make a decision before they sit back in their chair off stage. If you do not make a decision by then, it will be considered a forced walk.
Before the clock returns to WWTBAM, the hot seat and dramatic music needs to come back. These are staples to the original show. Aside from that, if the clock would return to WWTBAM, I believe they should be more lenient with the time. For example, instead of 15 seconds for the first five questions, they should give 20. For the middle five questions, they should give you 45 seconds. Finally, for four questions leading up to the million, the contestant should get 1:00. I would still keep the idea of banking leftover time for the million dollar question. I do not believe the clock format should come back, but if it did, I believe this would be the most efficient way of doing it.

I'm not a fan of the timed limited version, but in my opinion Syndicated Millionaire is so bad that returning to timed limited (assuming that they will return to the classic or rave soundtrack) would be a great idea.

Or how about this...
1. Slow Time - x2 regular time limit. (optional) 15/30 30/60 45/90 MDQ is 90 seconds/2 minutes www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEdtMio3lYs Video by WWTBAMFAN1 2. Super Millionaire Double Dip - Stop the clock for BOTH answers, not just the first. That way, it doesn't abruptly cut back to the clock ticking. 3. Set Details - Each second is represented by a tiny light on the set's floor. As the seconds tick down, the set gradually changes its color from green to red. For the final 10 seconds on 30- and 45-second questions, the set pulses white.
In my opinion, you can add a clock back, but you have to extend it a bit. It annoys me that the participants sometimes think 10/15 minutes, which does not give a chance to others. I agree with the fact that the clock has a negative impact on the participant because it puts pressure on him, but as I say, others do not have a chance to play. I will also add that I really like the sounds of the game with the clock.
I personally prefer the clock format as in introduced a sense of drama and tension not found in the original format of the game. I personally think it would be best for the producers to reintroduce the clock. That being said, I would also like to see WWTBAM return to primetime again and get more attention.
WWTBAM is an underrated show that deserves more attention in my opinion.
If the clock were to return, I think that the contestant should get access to six lifelines: Plus One, Ask The Audience, 50:50, Double Dip, Switch the Question, and Ask the Expert. That would make the game more fair to the contestant.

trevor okay, so two strikes in one night. While it appears you made this dead thread bump in the time it took me to open up all the different undread threads of the day, run downstairs to let the dog out, and write your last warning post, seems you have struck again. I will issue no further warnings from here on out about bumping dead threads. While this is sort of still on the boarder of technically being a dead thread, it still doesn't look good on you to be posting in such old threads.
