Exclamation No More Vapor Trivia Contest!

Well, it was fun while it lasted. I tried to do something fun and give back to our customers with a little friendly competition, but apparently someone had to take the fun out of it by scamming the system.

It seems a few people have been using multiple accounts trying to win and has been playing them all from the same ip address.

Due to those who can't play by the rules, I'm forced to put the trivia contests on hold until I can come up with a better trivia script that will keep things like this from happening.

In the meantime if you happen across any similar scripts I may be able to use, let me know!

It seems hackers and cheaters mess up everything. Well i hope to see a new contest up shortly if you find a good script.

It's not hard to get a lot of points if you take the test and get 9-10 right every day...that's what I did...

However, I never could understand how people could read and answer 10 questions in 20 seconds...

Actually, it's not that hard to get a perfect score in under 30 seconds - the information's not THAT sneaky.

Just like spike22...

I made 2 account names...

I made p8ntballfreak444 and Freestyle_ICD...

I used the p8ntball freak name while my friend used the Freestyle_ICD name...

Never did I intend to cheat, because those questions were hard. My friend just wanted to join and asked me to make a name for him, which I did....

And Darryl:
What do you mean by it isn't hard to get a perfect score under 30 secs.?
Please tell me what you mean by that..

Also, Goldie I hope you get a new trivia going, I will be looking for scripts, since I have my own site and would like to have a test for ppl...
