Welcome to Knowledge=\$\$\$!!!

Introduction:
This game can make you much richer, and hopefully will.

How this game functions:
10 people must sign up for this game. After 10 people have signed up, I'll ask a question and you must PM the answers to me. If you get it right, you earn Frih\$.

How to play:

• After 10 people have signed up, the contest will begin and I shall ask a question.
• Then, you have to PM the answers to me.
• After everyone has answered the question, I shall announce the winner.
• The winner will earn 85 Frih\$

FAQ's:

Q: What if nobody gets the question right?
A: Then nobody gets any Frih\$ and we move on to the next contest.

Q: What if more than one people get the right answer?
A: The money will be divided among the players.

Q: Where do the other 15 Frih\$ go?
A: To me.

Hammy.
william
Well, OK. I'm changing it from 50 Frih\$ 85 Frih\$. Is that better?
einstein
linexpert
I just have one question, what's the catagory that the questions will be in? Computers? Science? History?
william
The question can be anything. I'll be using multiple categories.
einstein
well, when will u ask my question then???
william
After 10 people sign up. Everyone gets the same question. Them you PM the answers to me.
einstein
oh, got it..
Hammy
Heh!, Thats more like it
Pm'ing you now.

Hammy.
einstein
well, looks like we have to wait a long time for the question!!!
william
Yeah, unfortunetly. I can't do much with only two players. Do you think I should reduce the number of players? (It will also reduce the prize.)
OutlawSpirit

einstein

Quick Q:

1. I don't check in here every day...how long will you wait for all contestants to pm you?

2. Will the first contestant with the winning answer be the winner or will you wait for all contestants to answer and split the pot with the correct pmers?

Thanks!
william
1. I'll wait until everyone has PMed me.

2. I'll wait for all the contestants. If more than one person gets it right, the award will be divided.
seastatue
 william wrote: 1. I'll wait until everyone has PMed me.

Suppose, say, a week goes by and not everyone has emailed you. Will you still wait?
william
I'll probably send them a reminder, so I probably will wait. If it seems like a really long time, then there is a slight chance I won't wait.

While I don't check in every day, if we wait a month for the game to continue, I might forget about it. How about an outside deadline? Also, if I'm not coming onto the Fri site for awhile, I wouldn't get a pm.
william
You mean make a deadline for the answers? Also, you can be notified via email when you receive a PM.
TeenZine
Nice idea stiling my idea of getting money for the contest. (its ok I dont mind. just had to say that ) Anyways I will give it a try count me in.
hunnyhiteshseth
It is stealing & not stiling.

He is not stealing your idea, you have never started such a contest.
Now please stop spamming in every other thread that it was my idea.
I guess I will participate also. I will send in my 10 FRIH\$.
mistuh griddlez
I might as well as i have lots now!!! But anyways i'll send you it as soon as i finish posting this.
seastatue
 william wrote: You mean make a deadline for the answers? Also, you can be notified via email when you receive a PM.

Yeah. I don't check the emai associated with pms here much at all. How about an outside deadline so we all know to check in every, say, two weeks for the deadline on answers?

Hey Griddlez, good to see you over here. How did you get all that cash?
william
Well, I'll make a deadline after everyone has signed up.
Josso

It's actually pretty awesome! I got it all one night after i finished making hogwarts' website. (He gave me a little much but oh well )

Also i can't wait to get this thing started!
seastatue
 william wrote: Well, I'll make a deadline after everyone has signed up.

I'll sign up if you make it, say, a 1 or 2 week deadline. The other rules are cool.

I'm in if he gives us an outside deadline now. That is awesome! I may need some help with a website sometime. You have an ad up here somewhere for your services? (I better start winning some games so I can afford you...)
william
Alright, once ten people have signed up, you'll have one week to answer the question. If you don't answer within a week, you are disqualified.
Hammy
I hope it's not oing to be a question that we can google, because out of 10 people.. surely someone will try n get an easy win.

I think it should be some Uber hard mathmatical Problem lol.

And no trick questions either lol
william
I won't really make any math questions or trick questions. I've made many questions, though I have to make sure they're extremely difficult to find on Google, if at all.
Hammy
Awww dangit lol ... i'm a A-Level maths student tho lol.

Ahh well.. at least it's not on google
william
Well, I might make math problems, but not very many. I'm mainly going to stick to science, history, maybe computers, and potpourri.
seastatue

PS: BTW, is anyone doing any more hangman contests soon?
william
C'mon guys! Only one more player is needed. After that, I'll give you the question. (I have a ton of questions, I just can't decide which one to use.)
seastatue
 Quote: PS: BTW, is anyone doing any more hangman contests soon?

While we're waiting to start here, if anyone want to join me for a quick Hangman round, check out the new game.

I'll guess we will have the final player here within 4 days, Will.

Yeah, I'll probably join the hangman contest. It's only a matter of time before somebody signs up here.
mistuh griddlez
Only one more person!! yes! Can't wait to get his thing going!
william
I can't wait either. However, the positive is that since it is taking a while, I have the time to make the questions harder.
einstein
well, i hope u make it as hard as possible, that cannot be searched on Google....
rajhank

Okay, Can we get the question know.

Donated the money to u.
einstein
i guess v have to wait for just one more member...
rajhank
 einstein wrote: i guess v have to wait for just one more member...

Didn;t u read the last post.

It says the I donated him the Money, that means i am the last member and I think William hasn't updated this thread.
einstein

Will, you didn't post the deadline for answers. You should say here at the END of the thread that you put the questions in the FIRST post and WHEN EXACTLY the deadline is DATE/TIME/TIMEZONE for our answer pms.

Thanks for waiting for ALL answers to be pmed before telling any contestant any info about the questions. Much appreciated.

So, when is our DEADLINE to get these back to you?
william

Friday August 25 2006, 20:15 GMT.

william
C'mon people! If you don't submit your answers by Friday, you will be disqualified!

By the way, I may need a tie breaker.
einstein

Hammy
Ooooo.. tie breaker

dought it'll be me tho.. i thought i knew the answers, But wasnt sure about them lol.

rajhank

william
OK, only three more people have to submit their answers.

-TeenZine
-Josso
-seastatue
einstein

william
I may wait a little longer, but they still have some time left.
einstein

william
It is. But the time is 20:15 GMT.
TeenZine

And, to quote a statement
 Quote: "Nothing is Impossible."
einstein
ummm well..........i don't think these questions were too hard!!! though quite challenging all the same.........so, when r u going to announce the results??? and of course.............NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!
william
I'm just being "nice" and giving just a little extra time. I will announce the winner.

But, I'll just tell you guys this, one person did get them all right.

Then there are some "maybes." Either I put up a tie breaker, give it to the person who got 'em all right, or divide it.
Hammy
Rightly that the person who got them all right should win the money..

except there wasd a mis-understanding in a question, and either answer was correct tecnically.

but anyways, im not one to complain .. so i dnt mind if that one person wins it all

Well done whoever it was.
william
Do you think I should post the winner now and not wait?
I Guess it's best for you to post now, Everyone must be dying to figure out who is the Winner. I am about to get an Heart Attack if I dont find out soon!
einstein
yeah, it will be better if u announce the winner..................we are all very curious!!!
Hammy
Heh, yeah post the winner.. They had their chance.. plus more lol

May the best man/woman win!
rajhank

I am desperately waiting for it.

Hope the Best Man(Me) wins.
william
OK, I shall now announce the winners! I reviewed the answers multiple times and figured it out. Also, there are TWO winners!

Do you want a tie breaker, or should I divide the prize?

Anyway, the winners are:

mathiaus and Hammy. Congrats to both of you!
rajhank

I am sure i am also a winner.
william
Oops, I forgot to. I'll do that now.
einstein
even i was sure that i had won!!! still, congrats Hammy and Mathiaus!!!
Hammy
Congrats Mathiaus and.. oh me!

I'm happy to split the prize..
unless mathiaus wld like otherwise?

gud job.
william
OK, Hammy and mathiaus, you can go ahead and decide if you want to divide the money, or if you want a tie breaker question.
william
I did, they're on the first post. I'll go ahead and post them here.

a. 17th century. Weighed 43 pounds 7.25 ounces or 19.7 kg.
b. 1913
c. 8 minutes. Duck, Sheep or Hen
hunnyhiteshseth
oh no, I just missed the contest with only 1question
william
Yeah, a lot of people were close to winning.

Next time, I will make the questions much harder.
hunnyhiteshseth
Yes, questions should always be such that either answer to all is known or answer to no question is known.
mathiaus
Well done as well Hammy
I'm happy to share the \$FRIH, luckily I'm not greedy
william
OK, since both Hammy and mathiaus are willing to divide, that is what I shall do. 42.5 Frih\$ for both of you.
