FanIQ Season Two has Begun

11/4/09 in FanIQ   |   Ty   |   81 respect

As you know, we’ve been hard at work developing the next generation of competition on FanIQ.  Now, we’re pleased to announce that Season Two has officially begun! 

Here a summary of the exciting new features launching today with Season Two:

Quick Fantasy – A New Season Every Day!


Quick Fantasy is a fast and social fantasy game that makes traditional fantasy games a thing of the past.  Instead of playing one monotonous game against the same group of friends for an entire season, you can play a new game against anyone every day!  Games can either be played for Cash or our new currency called Q Bucks (cash games coming soon).  Challenge your friends head to head, and the winner takes the Cash or Q Bucks pot!
  
Q Bucks – The New FanIQ Currency


Q Bucks is the new currency on FanIQ.  Use Q Bucks to wager in Quick Fantasy, buy gifts for your friends, or pimp out your profile with goods from the Q Store.  Low on Q Bucks?  Get more by winning in Quick Fantasy or through the daily login lottery, where you have a chance at winning Q$5,000 every day!

New and Improved Fan Rankings

Your team fan rank is now based solely on your “Contributions”, which are your submissions about your teams (comments, articles, etc.) and the “Respect” you receive for these contributions.  The more team-related contributions you make, the better your team fan rank will be!

Weekly & Career Rankings


In Season Two, we are now tracking both weekly and career rankings for all FanIQ games.  Weekly rankings will enable new users to compete with existing users, and career rankings will reward long-term excellence from our most dedicated users.

We’re excited at launching this new and improved season of competition on FanIQ.   We hope you enjoy Season Two even more than Season One.

As always, your feedback and questions are welcome below.  For more information about the changes, please visit the FAQs.

I would like to see fan articles as an option on my page. I thought they were gone until I began searching this morning, then when I found them I was lost and didn't leave a bread trail so I am lost again! 

UPDATE:  Finding Fan Articles and Hotlinks

The best way to get there is to go to the "More" Option drop down above, click on Locker Room.  Once there, there are links for Fan Articles and Hotlinks - after you hit either of those tabs, you can navigate to the sport of your choice.  It's a bit of a pain, but until they raise this issue from the back to the front burner, this is about the easiest way to consistently get there.  Hope this helps!!

I think it is great... The good part about it is you can always buy more respects... Before we could not do that. I think the Q has come a long way since season one.. It is much easier to move around the site now.. I love it.. @Seal... I do not even get sign on bonus' anymore.. So you better be proud you get your 25.00...:)

Mary I think you are still getting your sign on bonuses.  If you click on the Q by your Q-bux, you will see you are getting a daily bonus for sighing in, it just doesn't come up in a little box and tell you that anymore.  If you need more help figuring out how to check, let me know :)  Huggzzzz!

11/18/09   |   seal_warrior1   |   2231 respect

Message me anytime Deanna, I will be glad to help you.  If I don't know, I can sure find out   I'm still learning fantasy sports, so I'm not a huge help in that area yet.

Um........................When does season 3 start?

Technically I think this is season 3 since it's the 3rd different points system we've had here.  But since they're calling this season 2 and the site has been around since 2006, we should probably expect season 3 in about 3 years.

I'm not sure how much I like the new "respect" function.

For example, today I read 65+ articles on the Q. Am I really supposed to try and remember the 10 best comments I saw out of all those articles? I mean, when I read a good comment I want to give them a thumbs up. But with only 10 per day to give out I feel like I have to read all the articles I'm going to read first to make sure that I don't give out my 10 too soon. That is really hard, IMO and my initial reaction is I don't like it.

likewise me too don't really understand how the respect do work, despite reply to some articles out of almost 78 i read, may be one can just say it is fun

It's gonna be a GREAT season.    Now go fetch me a towel and some Gatorade, and make it snappy.  lol

Oh God what have I done???  <sighs and looks helplessly toward the heavens>

I gave you a RESPECT back because Im hoping that 2 Wrongs might possibly on occassion make a Right.     Here's your towel and Gatorade Diva.

While we're at it I might as well inform you of 3 other changes we HAD to make to your contract.
#1. NO... You will not be guaranteed 500 free courtside tickets for all road games to give away to your WE LOVE JANET stalkers fanclub. The new league CoC does not permit the type of cheers that seems to always emminate from that group of jerks individuals.
#2. You will NOT be allowed to refer to me, the Coach, as Freakin George Bush Wannabe or Damn Rush Limbaugh Hiney Kisser when I decide to remove you from the game. It does not accurately describe my beliefs or coaching style ... not to mention its just bad for TEAM moral.
And, #3. We have included a NO TRADE clause in your contract because we are certain you will not care much for the first 2 changes and will throw a Jersey Girl tirade and want out. Sorry DIVA....

Fantasy is for only NFL and NBA. Why? Is it only for American Guys? Why not for Asians? How about Soccer, Rugby Football, Cricket, Golf? Asians don't play American Football or whatever that's America. Oh come on Jesse! make sense and come with more novel things without restrictions to one particular country and their sports.

as a veteran member of the Q i have seen a lot of changes to the site....i have gotten used to them and continued to enjoy coming here each day. The second season is the biggest and so far the worst in my opinion, the problems that have been ongoing are still here ( getting the dreaded white screen on trivia) and have been for months. Now the site is slower than it has ever been.....

     Since much of the site is user driven may i suggest a "user panel" that could provide input into future changes? I realize that "we" do not own nor control the site but as most of the comments so far suggest sometimes newer is not always better......

I have just used up my quota of "respects" for this topic alone! Where shall I go now?   Yeah, I know, back to work, or to my other forums......................

11/5/09   |   richard_music   |   67 respect

Oh dear! I think I´m going to become the resident complainer here.

No more thumbs up for Smart, Funny, and Bold? Booo! And then only 10 "Respects" per day? Double Booo!

Play fantasy? with a choice of only TWO games? And the games are: NFL & NBA...."yaaaawn!  This will be played by our American friends mostly. So what about the rest of the WORLD??? This is supposed to be an international SPORTS site. So where´s the international sports???

Oh yes, and "Trivia" still hasn´t been fixed, so not much left for me to do now here..........................

I have to say I'm excited about this, but I sure would like to see the comments upped to about 50 a day and no limit to whom you give them.  With millions on this site, we are supposed to pick only 10?  Also... isn't 10,000Q bux kind of expensive for a rose?

 The number of respect is certainly low in comparison to the materials and quantity of members in "Q" ...for me it should have been 25 minimum ..anyway many good, encouraging stuffs will go without respect but will surely get.. from me.....

I didn't say you did, but many others did just that.  This is going to force people to give respect to posts that actually deserve such, no more 25 accolades for a comment by a popular member that really wasn't that funny to begin with.

Yeah, I'm not crazy about the 10 run rule myself.  But I am one of the people who give out when I think they are deserving.  I do think 10 is pretty limiting.  20 might be a better number for the people who are on here more than an hour.

But there's so many people on that make contribution's how could 10 possibly cover all the ones I think are best. Maybe I'm confused but I just got used to the way things where and new at the same time so,I don't know??????????I'm all for change don't get me wrong just seems like everything else, putting limitations on everything.

I'll give you one of these old things  

Thanks,

The way I see it the new respect thing has it's good side, i.e. people aren't just throwing around thumbs up. But the downside is that it is a bit like being a gymnastics or diving or ice skating judge. You never give a "10" to the first competitor, because if you do you might see something better later.

So when I read a comment I think is good early on in the day, I'm hesitant to give respect because I might see something better that really deserves a respect. And no, I'm not going to write it down or otherwise remember to come back and give respect the following day when I've got more to give. So it's making me kind of mental at this point.

11/4/09   |   woody050681   |   13691 respect

For example, today I read 65+ articles on the Q. Am I really supposed to try and remember the 10 best comments I saw out of all those articles? I mean, when I read a good comment I want to give them a thumbs up. But with only 10 per day to give out I feel like I have to read all the articles I'm going to read first to make sure that I don't give out my 10 too soon. That is really hard, IMO and my initial reaction is I don't like it.

You mention that your fan rank is based on your submissions about your teams, including comments. So does that mean when I respond and leave a comment on an article that is written about my team that gives me points toward my fan rank?

And does the article have to be tagged in a certain way so that it is associated with a given team?
