WPTavern Trivia Game

trivia Longtime listeners of WordPress Weekly know that recently, we’ve started a new segment called WordPress trivia. Up until now, the segment has been used as a means of education and also to have a bit of fun. However, I’ve decided to turn this segment into a game by awarding points to the first three people who answer the question correctly within the comments of that shownotes page. The point system is as follows:

  • Be the first to get it right and earn – 3 points
  • Be the second to get it right and earn – 2 points
  • Be the third to get it right and earn – 1 point

There will be other methods of earning points as well such as through the WPTavern forum and by interacting with me on Twitter. The bonus point amount will be announced along with the question. Only the first person to get the correct answer will receive the bonus point amount.

The scorecard will be kept on the Trivia page along with the rules, how to participate and the prizes that will be up for grabs at the end of the year. Speaking of prizes, if you’re interested in sponsoring this shindig with a prize package, please get in touch with me. At the end of the year, the top point totals will be able to choose their prize until there are no prizes left.

I plan on starting the trivia game with the July 3rd edition of WordPress Weekly. If you have any comments or suggestions related to the game or ideas on how to make this thing rock, let me know.
