    Hey guys,

    General trivia has been taking off on certain areas of the forum lately so I've thought about making it a competition (which will hopefully be more successful than Sherlock's attempts at making competitions).

    We'll have 1v1 trivia quiz battles, those that lose get eliminated and those that win will be matched against other winners (and this process repeats until we reach a final battle between two people).

    Requirements are:

    You must have at least 25 forum posts
    No cheating/no googling (I trust you guys)
    If after a reasonable amount of time a question is unanswered, the question is forfeited.
    The first person to get 10 points (one point award per question) wins the round.

    Please write your name here if you want to play (please also write if you're willing to be an adjudicator as well - you'd have to make up the questions for the competitors). You can be both! But it goes without saying that you can't write your questions/be the adjudicator for your own match.

    Matchings will be randomised and/or based on availabilities of members (we're going to spread out the competition so it's not going to all be on a certain day as that'd be logistically nearly impossible and it keeps the fun lasting for longer!).

    Prize: Thanks to Mana, this is now a gold star competition!

    The benefits of a gold star allows for site privileges, including the following (other rewards are possible depending on suitability) 1. permanent change of username colour to a colour of your choice 2. restore or grant access to chatbox to someone who does not have access 3. permanent change of username to a username of your choice (you can use Unicode symbols!) 4. custom user-bars (eg. what hpfanfiction has).

    Redemptions for colour usernames/custom user-bars will be permanent. Gold stars have to be redeemed shortly after winning (so you can't hold onto them forever).

    Good luck and have fun!

    Sign-up before this coming Friday, the 17th of August! (Late entries might still be considered if we've got another late entrant to pair you with and if we haven't finished the initial rounds)
