Wanted to start a thread so we could start working out the details and collecting questions.
Maybe the first question should be about what your profile needs to take part in IAP activities as a subtle reminder.

Ive been working on questions and will post them here when I get them all typed out, then we can copy and paste like last year.....

It seemed to work well that way.

If someone has some questions they would like to ask make submissions here and I will add them. I also have a Russ Fairfield question... I was thinking about asking the day the Russ Fairfield contest started. I'm going to try to arrange them to work out with other contests going on at the same time.

IAP 2012 BIRTHDAY BASH TRIVIA CONTEST-1 FEB QUESTION



Welcome
to the First day of this year's
IAP TRIVIA CONTEST !!!




We will aim to start each daily contest by 12 noon ET on a given day; but TriviaMeister schedules may necessitate earlier or later starting times. Regardless of the starting time, you will have until noon ET of the following day to email your answer for the contest question. Please be sure to include your IAP screen name with your answer so we know who you are.



All entries "postmarked" before noon ET of the contest closing day will be placed in a hat(electronic hat, actually) and two winners will be selected. The winners will be the first entry selected at random that is valid and have the correct answer to the contest question. The winner will be announced on contest closing day after 12pm ET. (or thereabouts as the TriviaMeister's schedule permits) and the decision of the TriviaMeister will be final.



The prize you will be competing for today is:


TBD - Two winners selected by random daily.







!!!!!***HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK***!!!!!


Question for day 1.....


Day 1. According to the IAP Privacy Policy. What 2 items must you provide in your profile to participate in IAP Activities including the Birthday Bash?


Email your answer to: trivia@penturners.org

Please show the date and name of the contest in the subject line of your email entry i.e., 1 FEB Trivia. You can copy/paste the preceeding. (This saves time for the TriviaMeister in processing entries.) Also be sure to include your screen name with your answer!!


Note: "Laundry list" entries that include several possible alternative answers are "NOT" acceptable. Submit only one answer per question or question part(if there is a multi-part question) unless the question specifically asks for multiple answers. Thanks.


The TriviaMeisters have decided there will be "NO" limit on the number of times any one person can win a prize. If you know your stuff and are lucky in the draw, you could win as many as 28 prizes!!!

There are the rules for the trivia.

They can be copy and pasted each day for ease of use. Note - The highlighted portions need to be updated daily.

We have 4 trivia people this year. I am open to suggestions on how yall want to split this up. I believe last year Chris posted the questions and I posted the answers and announced the winners.

Word of warning.... my experience from last year is no matter what the question and what the answer, or explaining how the winner was chosen...... you will get complaints PM'ed to you. If that happens you can forward them to me, I got thick skin

Is there an easy way to find who member # 10,000 is for a question?

There is NOT a right answer.

The person who says he was 10,000, was based on the complete database. But the membership roster does NOT agree with the member count (on the home page). So there cannot be ONE RIGHT answer, here.

I suspect this results from Jeff purging some very old names that never posted.

Now, the FIRST member, outside of Jeff and Scott, can be determined by separating the member list by join date and taking the third name (a ten way tie on 1-1-04).

Last year I wrote most of the questions and answers then me and Chris got together and made some changes... Trying to eliminate ones with what we thought others would complain about. There was still issues and complaints.

I am working on a list of questions if you have a question you'd like asked please post here and it will be added. I have also used questions from previous bashes.

FWIW....
There may be other ways, but if you use the URL http://www.penturners.org/forum/private.php?do=newpm&u=xxxx

Where xxxx is the member number you are looking for, you will get the send private message page for the member xxxx. For example xxxx=4 gives you jeff, xxxx=1088 gives you Ed, and xxxx=10000 gives you nobody.... Perhaps jeff will chime in.

Since this post is so Trivial, do I win???

I am still working on compiling a list of questions and answers that can just be copy and pasted each day.

As far as the volunteering goes, I am good with anything. I am home all day, either on computer or in shop. Since we have 4 people we can split things however works best for you guys... then I can fill in where needed.

I think last year Chris posted all the questions then I gave the answers the following day.

I am about done with all the questions and will post them when done along with some other trivia related posts. I'd have the questions done but my lathe caught fire a few days ago and been working on repairs so I can play during the bash too...

Looks good. We do need one more question.

I started to add another and noticed we dont have trivia listed for the 29th. So dunno yet if were having it that day. I'm sure we will get an answer. I was about to post in other thread but sure we will get answer here shortly.

Mike those corrections will be noted..... but I cant edit my post now. Can one of you mods edit it?

We have the questions, Who wants to do what? Last year we had one to post and one to do the drawings. It seemed to work well. With an extra person it might be a good idea to have someone to answer questions during the day if there is any confusion. Any thoughts?

I am open to let you guys decide how and what you'd like to do.

Basically we need someone to post questions, post answers, select winners. I can give help in any area, I dont work so I am here daily.

Dale, Chris, Mannie,

It appears all of us are here for the majority of the day, with the exception of Chris. So here were my thoughts

Chris can post the questions.
Dale can post the answers.
Mannie can post the winners.

I will come up with a post to congratulate the winners and have them select a prize between 1 -15. That way when Ed comes to the thread he can announce the prize and get it allocated without having to come back? Ed is that ok with you? Will it make it easier on you?

Mannie, I realize you have a business to run also, I will be able to assist you when needed.

Is that ok with you guys?

I just heard from Chris (Sumterdad) who is working with Dan on the T-Shirts. Dan suggested we place all the daily winners in a drawing at the end of the bash for a T-Shirt. Sound good to you guys?
