Okay, so I had an idea pop into my head, and I think that everyone may like the idea.
A daily/weekly/monthly quiz. The quiz would be just 1 question (although it could be more if you so chose) and obviously be poker based. Maybe make it what to do in XX spot, calculating pot odds, draw odds, spots in tournaments or something along those lines.
It'd be a lot of fun to have bragging rights here, and as well it would be a great way to maybe teach some people here a thing or 2 they didn't know about poker.
Perhaps make some sort of leader board, and maybe even give a small (maybe 10) mob points for every quiz people pass.
I know there's a plethora of quiz scripts out there, so I don't think it'd be that hard for the devs to implement. I'd even be willing to take some time and write out some of the quiz's if the idea took off.

Interesting idea but I think the problem with what to do in a certain spot is that it's subjective. I've seen questions on other sites where the answer has clearly been written by someone who is knowledgeable on poker but either the answer is obvious or the answer is debatable.
I suppose pot odds could work but surely a large number of members who know about poker will get 100% every day for a year. So to make it a challenge for all members and give a chance for bragging rights I think it will be quite difficult.
I also can't see admin taking time to create this feature or come up with questions everyday but I think a weekly quiz of 5-7 questions could work if someone in the forum set it up. Not sure how it would work or what questions would be asked though.

well I have seen this tried on other sites and it has always failed. I wish you all the best with your idea. Personally I will not be taking part but if it makes others happy then good on ya. I just know from personal experience on other sites that it is a waste of my time. Have seen this type of thing degenerate into all out flame wars as people argue about answers to what someone thought was a perfect question only to find out other thought there answer was wrong.
I do wish you all the best mate and I hope you have better luck then some others had.
Posted by demodawggy: I propose we start off with simple questions, progressively becoming more and more complex...
.. 2 dead BrM tourney cheating cockroach bingo queens with multiple accounts + 3 dead BrM tourney cheating cockroach bingo queens with multiple accounts ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ = ? dead BrM tourney cheating cockroach bingo queens with multiple accounts
What's the prize....?
The correct answer to your question is ...
Only 5 dead BrM tourney cheating cockroach bingo queens with multiple accounts is a really piss poor start
in my opinion.
Wait a minute... Are you sure that's correct? Can you just add "dead BrM tourney cheating cockroach bingo queens with multiple accounts" together like that?
Some of them might eat each other leaving less than 5 "dead BrM tourney cheating cockroach bingo queens with multiple accounts", and a few "fat ones". I've observed this actually happening. Granted that might be anecdotal evidence, but it's evidence nonetheless...
I suppose if they're "dead" though, they are unable to do much of anything, let alone eat each other (unless they are zombies of course).

Mathematically it may depend on how many multiple accounts each cheating etc bingo queen has as surely each one will need to be multipled first by their respective number of accounts to truly identify how many deaths there will need to be to get rid of them all!!!!!!!
Alternatively, we need to get DemonDawgy into therapy!

At the era we are living with all the info out there (well at least a big part of it ) it only takes some of your time and a few internet searches to get your answer right. Cant say i see this going too far
