hopefully a good idea

I really hope this idea has not been suggested yet.

I was sitting in the bathroom thinking just now. I thought, "What if pbnation did a paintball trivia for prizes?"

Perhaps once a month pbnation could open up a chat room and run an hour long paintball trivia game with prizes being something like: A free ASM upgrade, a free gold up, pbnation paraphernalia, etc.

A mod could run the questions and another mod could keep track of the scores. People love trivia and trivia games. It would be a great opportunity to generate traffic and maybe even get a company to sponsor the event.

What do you guys think?

I'm sure they could afford to give away a hoodie or something from the PbN Store.

I agree with Jon. It would probably influence people to buy anyway. It would almost be like an advertising expense.

You think pbn would seriously give stuff away for answering a question right? Maybe, just maybe, asm only or something, but never for the entire site. What happens if more than 1 person is right, jsut the first person to get it gets it right? I doubt this will ever happen.

you are missing the bigger picture I ate christ. It would be a prize for whoever got the most right after an hour. have prizes for the top 3 or 5 or so finishers.

All I am saying, I just can't picture the PBN I have known for 2+ years giving anything away to a few people because they answered a few questions right. Waste of time for the mods who have to make them and a waste of money. But if they do do it, I am all for it. Free stuff is better than no stuff. I think I was looking at the bigger picture.

haha. wrong bigger picture man. I was not trying to flame you. You are right, you were looking at the bigger picture. It was a bad choice of words on my part. I meant the competition as a whole and getting rewarded for answering the most instead of individual questions. Is this coming across clearly? I hate internet talking sometimes.

Haha. Yeah, I get it. All I am trying to say is that I doubt PBN would ever do it. Trust me, I would love it, but I just don't think it is practical.

edit:// so you mean like a questionnaire? A list of questions. Person with the most correct after __ amount of time gets a small prize?

yeah, I agree with you that they probably won't do it, but it is worth a shot.

I think it would generate a lot of traffic, although I don't think that they need to generate any.

Edit: It would be very worth while if it became popular enough to have a company sponsor the trivia hour. That could be a potential gold mine.

I am a harry potter fan. I went to a HP website that had a running trivia chat room. A bot would post a question and keep tallies.
the first to answer would get the point. it would post a new question every minute or two.

yeah. I know they don't need to generate any more traffic. They could potentially make money off it though even including the prizes.
