--------------------------------------------------
It feels like ages since we've had a trivia, so I randomly decided that we are going to hold one on <b>Saturday 2nd December, at 7pm EST</b>. All reguar rules will apply and of course Trainer Card ribbons and Psybucks will be up for grabs. There will be some spot prizes in the form of Psybucks as well, but I am not going to reveal them until after the trivia.

I will post the times for other timezones soon.

Note!! There will be a handful of questions from Diamond and Pearl! However, the answers to these questions can be found in the DP section of the site, or on the Psydex. Study up!

<b>What are the prizes?</b>
The three highest scoring members (staff and non staff) will get a fancy trainer card ribbon.

The <b>three</b> highest scoring non-staff members can get EITHER:
- a one-off 80x80 avatar (if you change your avatar after this, it will be erased), OR
- a one-off name change, OR
- 500 Psybucks

<b>When is it?</b>
Saturday 2nd December, 7pm EST. Check your timezone here.

<b>How to get there</b>
Trivia will be held on the Chats server in the #PsypokeTrivia channel.
To get there, use the java applet found here, and part #psypoke and join #psypoketrivia.
You could also use a IRC chat program and connect to the DarkMyst server (irc.darkmyst.org port 6667) and join #psypoketrivia.
If you are having troubles, please ask inside the #Psypoke chat room.

<b>Trivia rules</b>
1. We usually have a big turnout in trivia, so it is necessary to moderate the room. The operators of the channel may set mode +m in-between questions and this reduces lag. You will not be able to talk during this time.
2. When I say "Ready", this indicates that the question is going to be displayed soon. Please do not reply "Yes" or something equally as lame
3. You may guess as many times as you wish, unless the question states otherwise
4. The host's decisions are final and if you really want to complain, type the following: /msg ChanServ COMPLAINT: Your complaint here
Although your answer may appear on your screen first, it takes time for binary digits to travel over the Internet to New Zealand. I will award the point based on who appears on my screen first.

<b>Other questions</b>
1. How do I get there???
Read above.

2. My timezone isn't on there
I'm incredibly sorry.

3. It's too late/early for me!
The time was picked to best suit the general population. We can't all have our way. If you're that desperate to attend, sleep in or take a nap to offset your sleep schedule for a day.

4. Is it going to be Pokemon questions or general knowledge?
Pokemon.

5. Is use of the Psydex, Walkthroughs, or other help guides allowed?
By the time you find the right guide, click, scroll to read, the correct trivia answer will have been given. And for the record, the answer to your question is "no".

6. Does typing matter?
As long as I can make out the words. "Pikacuh" would be fine since it's clear that you actually mean "Pikachu". Trying to pass off something like "Paiowkfgn" as Pikachu will not work.

Okay, after trying to do this smoothly for awhile, I decided it would be easier to just show you a huge list of timezones.

By staff, do you mean raters too (Like myself - official authorized rater of Advanced Generation.)?

Also, can my friend sign up Dec. 2, and then do it that night?

No, staff refers strictly to the Elite Four, Lite Four, Frontier Brains and Gym Leaders.

Your friend is welcome to join as long as he doesn't join us as a member just for the sake of trivia.

I know this might seem like a strange question, but hypothetically, let's say you get second place and decide to get a one-off name change. Do you have to change your name at that time, or can you save it for later? (again, might seem like an odd question, to paraphrase, if you choose a one-off name change can you save it for another point in time or not)

Unfortunately, I have plans on December 2nd (forced ones), so I won't be able to attend. You might see me idling in the channel, though...

I never even come close to winning anyway (I fail at pokemon), so I guess it doesn't matter. :p

I'm sure you would be allowed to choose your 80x80 avatar. The only restriction is that as soon as you change it, you lose your 80x80, so if you win, pick carefully!

I'll be extra nice and say you don't have to take your name change or avatar immediately. You can use it like a voucher.

And by one-off, I mean that once I change your nickname or avatar, I won't change it ever again unless you have the required amount of Psybucks.

There is nothing in the rules that states Pokefans- or members with any other rank- are not allowed to take part.

Everyone can play, and every registered member of the forums is eligible for the prizes.

From the main chat room, yes. You'll still be free to go to the trivia since it's in another room.
