    I think we should have a new thread for the actual game. Then this thread can be deleted.

    Why deleted when it could be locked?

    There will be no need for this thread and I don't like clutter. There's too much clutter on the JC now as it is.

    I agree Salty, on both points. I don't want to have to go to page 4 in order to see the first question for the game.

    Yeah, I'd agree that the game should have its own thread. I'll post one tomorrow.

    *****Classic Trilogy Trivia Contest*****

    Rules

    -The questions will come from a variety of sources but they all relate to the Original Trilogy. No aspect of the Original Trilogy is too minute. If it appears the questions are way too easy, I'll search for harder and harder questions.

    -Only the questions and the list of people who got a question either right or wrong will be in the thread. NOTE: PLEASE DO NOT POST IN THIS THREAD UNTIL THE NEXT SIGN-UP PERIOD BEGINS!

    -People will have 2 days to answer the question. They should PM the answer to me. No answers will be taken once the 2 days is up. The time starts as soon as the question is posted.

    -Once the 2 days is over or everyone has responded to me via PM, the answer along with who got it right and wrong will be posted. Please pay attention to the thread so you don't miss a question.

    -The next question will immediately follow the posting of who was right or wrong.

    -We'll keep going until only one person is left. If you get the question wrong or don't answer at all, you will be banned for 24 hours and eliminated from the game. You may still post with a sock during this 24 hours. NOTE: GIVEN "DARTH-STRYPHE'S" POSITION AS CITY REP, HE WILL NOT BE BANNED. HE WILL BE TEMPORARILY DEMOTED. AS A FORMER CITY REP, I UNDERSTAND THE NEED FOR THE CITY REPS TO BE VISIBLE ON THE JC AND HAVE THE ABILITY TO GET INTO THE PRIVATE CITY REP FORUM.

    -The last person standing will get VIP-ship and a custom title for 1 week. That person will be able to use whatever color combination they choose. The only thing I ask is that the winner doesn't change their colors every hour. Please don't abuse this prize.

    -The winner of a game can participate in the next game unless it gets to be a case where there's only one winner every time. If that happens, I'll prevent that person from playing a couple of games.

    -If there's a controversial question that may have multiple answers, I have the final say. I assure you I will be as fair and accurate as possible.

    Everyone still has about a day and a half to look around and brush up on their skills. The first question will be posted at 12:00PM (High Noon) EST on Monday.

    Looks good to me. :) We'll probably find out what needs changing as we go along.

    Is the ban from the OT board only or from the entire boards? I a FF officer, so is there a way to not get banned from my FF board?

    That's what I'm hoping. My only real concern is the questions being too easy. These movies and all sorts of infomation about the movies, actors, and time spent on set have been around for years and years. It's going to be tough to find questions people don't know and can't readily find.

    The only privilege I'm extending is to Darth-Stryphe because he is a City Rep. Everyone else will have the name they signed up to play the game with banned for 24 hours if they get an answer wrong or miss a question. KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO POST WITH A SOCK DURING THAT 24 HOURS.

    There's no way to ban a person from just one board, but you can still use a sock to post when you have a game ban. :)

    The ban will be from the entire JC.

    That sucks for the people that don't use socks... :( Oh well, it comes with playing the game. :)

    This all sounded good until you had to go and mention behind the scenes trivial facts, like how many prop lightsabers were used. :mad:

    Oh, and the rules sound fair. :)

    Don't worry. I won't use the really anal questions unless nobody is being eliminated.

    Then in that case, it is still sounding good. :)

    One question, or maybe two. Does the banned person get banned after submitting the wrong question, or are they banned after the 48 hour deadline? As to the actual banning, is there some kind of procedure that one must undergo to get unbanned? I've also heard that when one is banned it goes into our user record, will this go under the record?

    **Has never been banned before, in case one did not notice. :p**

    The ban doesn't count against you in any way. That's why you can post with a sock while the other name is banned. The bans will start as soon as DLM or another Mod sees the list of people that need banning, but I'd like the bans to start right after the next question is posted. The ban only lasts 24 hours.

    I just hope the questions aren't impossibly hard, like the TPM quiz ones, as that takes away the fun somewhat.

    This should be fun and exciting. ;P Though what, exactly, is a sock?
