Well it seems that this thread has attracted some attention Smile.

This Trivia will take place in my friend's chat: "Cookieslay3r"


"Irl trivia" is like slayer nest trivia in a lot of ways except it will lean towards subject matters of the real world: including but not limited to Biology, Chemistry, Algebra, Social studies, and General knowledge. Prizes will vary from around 1m to 5m depending on the amount of donations we gather.


Here is the link to the slayer nest trivia which got this trivia started Smile (thanks to paper for starting it and amy and stits for continuing it ).

Spoiler:
 



(the people who will be supplying the prizes are Amy (snt trivia funds), Cookie (me), Pholus, and Veg.)


Prize Winners:


1/12/13 Mremmawatson won the first ever trivia (zgs prize donated by amy)
1/13/12 Darfwantwarp won the second ever trivia (100 extreme melee sets and 100 d bones)(donated by mremmawatson)



1/15/12 Mremmawatson won the third ever trivia (25k air/fire runes 50 torstols and other kk bossing supplies)(donated by mremmawatson)

1/15/12 Pholus won the second round of trivia (5million gold coins) (donated by Giwi)


1/25/13 Mremmawatson won !!!! (2.9mil in various prizes) ( donated by giwi and mremmawatson)





Rules
1. The first person to answer a question correctly wins one point.
2. The first person to get 5 points is the winner.
3. Answers may not be abbreviated and require correct spelling.
4. The previous trivia winner is not eligible to win the current episode of trivia without my consent.
5.
(more rules to be added as needed, and thanks for the consent of Amy in letting me copy the rules for slayer nest tirvia Smile)

Very nice, however I have one concern with that game (or just in general). In the case where you asked Veg as to whether to accept my answer or someone else's: since I was sitting at 4 pts, by not ruling in my favour Veg stopped me from winning, and then later went on to win. Before people start calling me a whiner, I must state that I don't disagree with Veg'sruling, and was, in fact, not eligible to win anyway. The problem is, you had a participant in the competition decide which person to award the point. In the future, having a participant in the game decide who to award points to is probably no the best thing, as they will naturally have a bias towards whichever situation will most benefit themselves. Perhaps the introduction of a non-participant to rule in matters such as this would be worth some thought? Otherwise, just don't ask for anybody else's opinion and declare the winner based on the asnwer that you are looking for. (sorry about the wall of text Rolling Eyes )

tl;dr don't have participants in the contest judging who is awarded points in the future

Wouldnt it just be ideal to award the point to who ever is first with correct spelling?

Sorry Pholus, but you had won the last game anyway, meaning you couldn't have won that game of trivia anyway Razz.

I need to refine my rules a bit more. (remember im just a beginner at this)
