I had discovered that "trick" of getting them all right, but didn't want to use it because I wanted to earn the trophy for 100% at least one month without feeling like I cheated to do so. (Alternatively, it's just as easy to search the quizzes or forums for most of the answer. Again, I avoided that for me personally.)

For the sake of getting points, it really doesn't matter how many we get wrong. (And to answer your initial question, that was the only reason I was doing trivia daily. Back when I was doing this, I was getting 100+ points every single day - from huddling, doing trivia, reading articles and blogs, etc.)

does anybody do trivia just to collect points?
I have discovered a way to 'cheat' into improving your percentage.
just answer the questions you are sure of, if one comes up you don't know, just go back to spark points or anywhere and start trivia over again. the questions you have answered correctly still count.
ok you'll never learn whose hamburger or burrito has fewer calories....
but thanks for telling me about the coconut oil, I was really beginning to wonder about it!
