I suggest we start a forum trivia competition.
Rules are a s follows:
Volunteers create a set of 20 questions on a topic for others to answer.
Each set of 20 questions is one round.
The volunteer questioner for that round gets 20/20 (motivation to volunteer)
Questions are up fopr 24hours, after which answers are tallied by that rounds questioner.
Answers must be submitted by PM or email to the round questioner, NOT POSTED on the forum.
Questions MUST be posted.
Those who wish to volunteer state the topic and round you wish to assume control over.
Do not research the answers, just have a go. Lets see who is really the best at trivia.
