Right, so i don't want to come across as too harsh, but i want to hear y'alls opinion too.

Two teams so far have come up with an answer for a question which is wrong. If they had seen either film (the correct one or the incorrect one) obviously they would know this; and when you reverse search the image the "answer" which comes up is the incorrect answer, which leads me to believe that the team members who provided the answers have been reverse searching images (potentially for the whole game)

I made it pretty clear that reverse image searching the images isn't in the spirit of the game and in previous pub quizzes (which im pretty sure everyone who is playing has previously played) Shaun put it pretty well with,,,

Quote:
I do ask that everyone refrains from cheating. Google has come a hell of a long way since the very first Pub Quiz on here back in 2011. For example, Image Search wasn't a thing. But Greg and Ben can attest (or at least they could if they were still with us) that running this thing is a total nightmare. Finding images in videos that have never been screenshot before, and are therefore un-google-able, is near impossible, and a long process. In a way, this is my least favourite game to run as a result. I don't do begging but I will go as close to it as I can in asking you all not to use things like Google Image Search, Shazam, posting my questions on other forums for help... because:

1) It is a waste of my time
2) It is a hollow victory
3) If I catch you doing it I'll out you and make your future time on this forum a living hell
and 4) I'll hate you and probably campaign for you to be banned. I am a really ****ing nasty person if you cross me and I cannot stress how angry this game makes me when it's being sabotaged.

It takes probably a solid fortnight of preparation for this and I ask that you respect that and just play the game with fairness. I'm not saying "DO NOT USE GOOGLE" because of course you're going to see some pictures and think, "hmm, that actress looks familiar, is it [Sarah Michelle Gellar]?" and then have a look at Wikipedia for a list of films/TV shows she's been in to see if they look like my screenshots. And that is perfectly fine, it's what the quiz is all about: educated research (or indeed guesses
Im not going to currently reveal names or which question it is, but i'd like to hear people's opinion on it before I make a harsh decision such as halving points for the round or previous rounds.

Also i will just say as well, on a personal note, that after spending ages trying to find ungoogelable images (and making a point of that numerous times in the thread) AND trying to run this whilst moving AND starting a new job, its just really disappointing and frankly quite disrespectful cause you're just wasting my time

Ban them. Unless it's us.

I just assumed that they wouldn't be reverse engine searchable so didn't bother, but I also see why that's the first thing people would do. Seems a bit of a grey area.

Hmm... I'd see if you can get James to remove these players frkm their teams and let the other players continue, rather than ban the team outright

this seems fair if its 100% that certain people have been cheating. Smithy will know which individuals it is by who answered the particular question.

...I donít know really what to suggest, Smithy...so the same incorrect answer that has been given by two teams...?...it isnít in any way a film that, that conclusion could have been reached by each individually..?..Like a really similar scene or some such thing/same actor(s) or characters wearing similar things...youíve re-tried searching the image and it does actually come up, so youíre pretty sure..?...

Yeah Iíve reversed searched all the images before I uploaded them and I know which ones give incorrect results.

The image in question if people actually bothered to look at what it is rather than reverse searching theyíd probably clock that their answer is wrong but they havenít and theyíve just gone with google.

I think you need to speak to those people you think are involved Smithy. It may be harsh to penalise whole teams but I can see how frustrating it is for you. There could be some explanation though and I think people have a right to be able to give a defence if you believe they have cheated.

I dont know if someone has cheated on my team or not. I know for a fact I havent cheated though as you will be able to see in the chat threads smithy. I havent known that many answers so I either have guessed or have known the film. For example I only knew like 5 ot 6 from this round
