AnimeShinbun Quizify: Your Questions - and Prizes!

Archaic | 1138d ago
User blog

As some of you may already know from the competition that's been running on N4G, we at HAVAmedia are involved with the development of Quizify ( ), a trivia app where you can create interest-based quizzes. Included in the app will be an official AnimeShinbun Otaku quiz, and after having put you guys through your paces with trivia over December, we'd like to ask you to join us in coming up with our questions.

The only catch? You'll have to get in quick. They'd like us to have this up before the middle of the month, so this competition will close on January 12th.
We'll be back to your regular contest format starting in February.

We'll have up to 10 $20 Amazon gift vouchers for people who submit questions for us. And yes, if you submit enough questions that we decide to use, you can win multiple times. ;)

Here's what you have to do...
1) Comment below with a trivia question worthy of a self-declared Otaku. ;)
2) Include for each trivia question 4 possible answers (1 correct, 3 incorrect)
3) PM me, Archaic, with the question, correct answer, and a link to a source which confirms the correct answer
4) Vote other members' questions up/down with Agree or Disagree votes to help us choose the winners!*

We will choose the 20 best questions to include in the App (plus a few staff contributions, including some of your favorites from our 12 Days competitions in 2011 and 2012 :) )

Want an example?

1. Competition is open to all AnimeShinbun users, except for employees of HAVAmedia and immediate relatives. Contests are not limited to the US/NA.
2. Closing date is 11:59 PM EST 12th January 2013.
3. In the event of unforeseen circumstances AnimeShinbun/HAVAmedia reserves the right to substitute the prizes for alternatives of equal or greater value.

I don't watch the series, but this seems like a possible major spoiler...
Archaic  +   1136d ago
While I would like to try and avoid spoilers in the questions we're asking, with series like Naruto, One Piece, Bleach or Dragonball Z, there's not a lot that will really be a spoiler to people anymore.

Now having said that....this question isn't really all that much of a spoiler. The death of Naruto's parents isn't so much a plot point. Who they are however...

We've been informed that we can take a little while longer to get the questions in. While I'll be assembling the bulk of the questions from what's already been submitted (and everyone who's submitted ones thusfar should get at least one of the gift cards), I will accept a few more questions from ones submitted between now and next weekend, so there's still a chance for you to pick up an Amazon Gift Card if you've been a bit busy these last few days.
