    THE QUIZ WILL TAKE PLACE AT #gbatemp-trivia ON irc2.gbatemp.net:5190
    IF YOU WISH TO TAKE PART PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW http://gbatemp.net/d...rc-server-rules
    You can also connect with mibbit.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Today on the #gbatemp.net IRC channel we have added a trivia bot for people to use in the channel 'down' time i.e when no one is chatting,
    Problem is we have no actual video game related questions. Here is where we want your help. We need as many gaming related questions as you can possibly think of, and care to submit.

    The format is:

    question*answer

    1 per line.

    Example:
    Who is the famous Nintendo mascot?*Mario

    You could also do fill in the blank stuff like:

    Fill in the blank: _____ the Hedgehog*Sonic

    Please submit your questions with answers in the above format VIA PM TO MYSELF so we can add them to the trivia bot on IRC.
    If you wish to join in and play please follow http://gbatemp.net/d...rc-server-rules

    Atm there are just general knowledge and movie questions running, but we want it to be exclusivley video game related, so the more questions you can think up the better.

    [-EDIT-]
    To make sure this gets some results, we will be running the trivia bot with all the added questions next Sunday. Whoever wins the round will receive a Supercard DSTWO, not sure if standard or a GBAtemp one, but either way you get a Supercard DSTWO.
    So obviously the best way to up your odds of winning is to submit the most questions so you know all the answers!

    This thread will be here for one week from today. All questions must be sent VIA PM to myself by 17:00 GMT+0 11/03/2012.
    The quiz will take place on the irc server at 20:00 GMT+0.

    THE CHANNEL THAT WILL BE USED FOR THE QUIZ IS #gbatemp-trivia ON irc2.gbatemp.net:5190


    The game is now over and the winner was @SignZ
    The chan is still open to play and it also runs in the main channel.

    How many Chaos Emeralds were featured in the game "Sonic the Hedgehog" for the Sega Genesis/MegaDrive?

    So, so, so many people will get that one wrong. :P

    Great question Foxi thanks for adding but I edited the main post so everyone doesn't see the answers, you can now also win a prize.
    Thanks.

    I see, I see. Well, you've seen it already, so rather then sending a PM I just blanked out the answer, if that helps, lol. Me and skim-reading - always works.

    Sent a message with a couple of questions, maybe I'll find some more later on. If I win the prize, you can give it to someone else, I don't need it all.

    Is this quiz a one time deal, or can you use the bot any time? Nice initiative, looking forward to it :)

    The bot can be used anytime this was just a small incentive to get a large questions.txt file to run on it and everyone gets to take part.

    I may do closer to the weekend as we have had hardly any questions so it will be really easy to win right now.

    Do you mean PM you on the forums or in IRC? I don't want to get it wrong and not get the question in :)

    you should consider postponing it if you don't have enough questions. i think everyone who plays should have a shot at winning, and it will be much more even if there are more questions.

    I'll probably move it to the portal to boost submissions. If there are less than 20 players it won't run this week.

    I'm not entering the quiz at that time, but I'll do it later on (my football club is playing then, number one priority!)
    Thanks for the effort!
