Before taking part in Complete Chaos, PLEASE read the rules below:

1. Assuming the quiz master actually remembers, quizzes will be posted at some point on Monday (usually 20:00) and will close the following Friday at 20:00 or once all questions have been answered correctly.

2. Questions will be allocated to a match that is being played on the following Saturday (these may be from any League or competition).

3. Forum users will be restricted to entering once in each weekly quiz. The quiz master is aware of duplicate accounts and will ignore further entries from the sad and pathetic individual who attempts this.

4. Contestants will be restricted to supplying one correct answer in a particular quiz. Any instance of multiple answering will result in the instant termination of the contest (I haven't gone to this trouble for one idiot to ruin it for everyone else).

5. If a player answers a question incorrectly, they will have to wait one hour before having another attempt at that, or any other, question.

6. Once a question is answered correctly - that's it, it cannot be answered again.

7. Answer values will be based upon the Scrabble points values of the initial letter of the goal scorers' surnames in the match that the question has been allocated to. For reference these points values are as follows:

1 point: A, E, I, L, N, O, R, S, T and U
2 points: D and G
3 points: B, C, M and P
4 points: F, H, V, W and Y
5 points: K
8 points: J and X
10 points: Q and Z

For example, Smith would earn 1 point and Jones would earn 8 points; for simplicity's sake, own goals will be valued in the same manner. If a game finishes 0-0, it will yield zero points.

8. If a game is postponed, it will be treated as a 0-0 draw and gain no points. The quiz master will do their best to exclude matches that have been called off before the launch of that week's quiz.

9. Challenges to point awards etc must be made before the start of the following quiz.

10. The use of the term 'BEE' in any posting within CC will result in the deduction of 10 points from the offending player. The only exception will be if the answer to a question is 'bee' and even then, the use of block capitals will not be tolerated.

11. The posting of music videos within CC will result in the deduction of 10 points from the offending player. This penalty will be increased to 20 points if the video features Rick Astley.

12. Remember, it's just a bit of fun.

mendacem facimus ignis anhelat.
