this should probably mention online buzzers like buzzin.live Eric Yin (talk) 01:16, 24 September 2021 (CDT)

I added a few sentences about online buzzers, but there's still plenty of room for more info (particularly in the body of the article). Reilly Melville (talk) 08:04, 24 September 2021 (CDT)
I think details about online buzzers belongs in a separate article or the article about online quizbowl, since they serve a fairly different use case than everything else on the page. The short bit just added to this page seems fine. I don't feel that strongly about it. —Jonah (talk) 08:07, 24 September 2021 (CDT)

I added an external link for a decently priced USB buzzer that works very well for buzzin.live or Discord. Why are USB buzzers considered impractical? Are they even considered impractical? George Tagtmeier (talk) 11:44, 24 September 2021 (CDT)

It was my belief that USB buzzers were considered impractical because pretty much no one has USB buzzers lying around so it'd be expensive to set up (plus I'm not aware of any recent tournaments that used them). I'm hardly an expert on the matter, but I think the advent of Buzzin.live has rendered them obsolete. Also, I got an error message when I clicked on the link you added, although that might just be my internet or something. Reilly Melville (talk) 14:27, 24 September 2021 (CDT)
