    Kewl. 1 question: is it that you will post the questions on the forum and the first one to reply with the correct answers will win? Cause I have a crap internet connection which is sometimes laggy. That makes my chances smaller.

    Of course not [​IMG]

    There will be a special page with a form.
    Any member can fill in the form (just ticking boxes)
    Once the quiz is closed, we will eliminate the members that gave wrong answers.
    Then, we will write and publish an algorithm that randomly selects a member to win the CycloDS [​IMG]

    yup.
    Nothing to input manually.
    No tough questions about GBAtemp/history itself either, would be unfair to the new members (those who were here only since 2005 or 2006...)

    We don't need fancy algorithms. I've been training this monkey to randomly pick names from a banana shaped hat.

    just put everyone in an array and use Math.random*testTakeArray.length and it should give you a number between 0 and how many people took it, and just put screen names in alphabetical order.
