Although stasbot couldn't make the actual event, I used my own log to give to stasbot. Unfortunately, stasbot is yet to review it and decide upon some stats. After that's dealt with, nfield or I should have it posted here.

Participation wasn't awesome, but it was decent nonetheless. A few Jeopardy casuals were missing unfortunately, and the scores were a bit low. On the plus side, ChanServ beat some people with a new personal best of 1200.

Final scores:

Sneaky_Sneasel 7600
Serpentsounds 6600
skullkid 4600
ChanServ 1200
Criss_Cross 1200
Happy_Ninji 1200
Peanut-Lover -600
poplers -800
Geno -1000
Ryo -3800
DragonPhoenix -12000
Frost "9001"
Ledyba "9000"


Scores at half:

Serpentsounds 1200
skullkid 1000
Sneaky_Sneasel 600
Peanut-Lover -2400
Geno -1000
Ryo -3000
DragonPhoenix -3600
poplers -800

For the first time all year, a Jeopardy will take place! If it wasn't January, that might mean a little more, but it's not exactly as rare as trivias are known to be. This time, stasbot, the chat stat bot of #psypoke will be playing along, too! More specifically, stasbot will be taking some chat stats of #psypokejeopardy during the event to see how it works out. Watch out though or stasbot could beat you. :wink:

Where/when?

In the #psypokejeopardy chat channel on Saturday, January 19, at 7:00 PM EST. (click for other time zones)

For using the java applet to access the chats: go here, click on the Java Applet link, and type /join #psypokejeopardy when you're connected.


How it works:

Jeopardy can be viewed as a twist on the occasional trivia. It uses many more scripts than trivia does due to its complex structure, but it is not difficult for participants at all.

This Jeopardy works very similarly to normal Jeopardy. A clue is given, and after three seconds, people can buzz in. In order to do this, all you have to do is say "buzz" after the mode -m is set and hope that you entered it first. The buzzing process will be explained again at the beginning of Jeopardy.

After you buzz in, you will have eight seconds to answer. In order to answer, you must give the question to the clue (like normal Jeopardy). For example, one clue would be "this Pokemon is the first alphabetically," and its correct question (what you submit) would be "what is Abomasnow?". If you get the question wrong however, you do lose Psybucks (in the game, not the forums). If you need help, simply watch other people play along.

Jeopardy also consists of the ability to choose the next question from multiple categories and Psybuck values. This only happens for the person who gets a question correct though. There are two rounds of six categories and five values, which adds up to 60 total questions. Sometimes however, a round will end a little before all of the questions are chosen if it takes too long. Regardless, this has happened very few times.

It even consists of its own bonuses. One Daily Double in the first round and two in the second round can (as they suggest) double your Psybucks in the game. Only the chooser will be able to answer the question, and ten seconds are allowed to answer. Daily Triples made a debut last time, and those can really rack up the points. Other special bonuses come and go.

Final Jeopardy concludes the event. Here, one usually tough clue will be given. Like Daily Doubles, you can wager as many of your Psybucks as you want. For this question, an amount of twenty or thirty (depending on the type of question) seconds is allowed for you to think over your answer while you imagine the special Jeopardy music. After this, the final scores are tallied, and the winners are announced.

All script commands will be explained during the event for those that need help.


Rules:

1. No /me. There are actual reasons why this is a rule, so don't do it anyway.
2. Do not argue if you thought that you buzzed in before someone else. The entire process is scripted, and it is based on what appears on my screen only.
3. Do not PM any ops, especially me. If you have a complaint/question/whatever, wait until a break. (during the event)
4. Do not use any reference materials (such as the site).
5. Answers MUST be given in a question format such as "What is Pikachu?". This will be taken loosely, but drastic mixups between "where" and "who" will be called incorrect. (Pokemon are considered as "what"s)
6. You must use your forum name to receive any prizes. Various exceptions are allowed, but ask first. Also, do not change nicks during the event.


Prizes:

(non-staff, except for ribbons)
Winner: 3x Psybucks from Jeopardy, top three trainer card ribbon, temporary +v (voice) in #psypoke
Second and third: 2x Psybucks from Jeopardy, top three trainer card ribbon
Other people with positive scores: Psybucks earned + 1000
Other people with scores > -5000: 500 Psybucks
Yet other people: 100 Psybucks (for "effort")
For all people that come: the participation trainer card ribbon


Questions:

How much different is this from a normal trivia?
The biggest difference is in the questions themselves. It is possible to lose points, and you have to buzz-in before you answer. The question format for answers is slightly different, too. Similarities are basically in the knowledge bit, and it has the same trivia-like "atmosphere" to it. Benefits of Jeopardy comparatively include the amazingly high Psybucks amounts, an ability for everyone to score more easily or get back into contention for the lead, and the addition of small strategies (picking higher questions and the like). See above for all the little details.

Why should I go?
Because it's something really fun and worthwhile, and because I said so. :P

Are the questions Pokemon-related?
Yes, although there is a special category for random knowledge.

What time is it in my time zone?
Click the link and find out.

Is there freezing?
No. There are no extra restrictions like this, but in the event that someone goofs off, I can put he/she on "buzzignore."

Does only "buzz" work for buzzing in?
Yes, so you better type it out first and wait for -m to press enter. Even missing a "z" or using colors would cause the script to skip over you.

What are the special commands that will be included?
!chart: Shows the chart to the person choosing the next question.
!stop: Stops the countdown when a person is answering a question.
!q (category) (amount): Selects the next question.
!wager (amount): Allows an easier process for wagering in daily doubles, daily triples and final jeopardy.

Only the third and fourth commands there will be mandatory. All will be brought up during the event.

Why can't I talk when I get in there?
This would be supposing that you're late and +m is set. This usually means that it is between questions. +m is a special mode to be set on chat channels that mutes people without special privileges (voice or op). These are only given to staff members and people choosing questions.

How will typos be dealt with?
If they are understandable, they will be acceptable. Eight seconds are allowed for one to answer, so this should not come up too much.

What happens to rule-breakers?
Loss of 10000 Psybucks in the game, loss of all Psybucks on the offender's forum account, and permanent bans from #psypoke, #psypokejeopardy, the forums, the main site, and the internet forever. In other words, don't do it. :O

I'm going to assume that cheating will be easily spotted, by you guys changing the psydex?

What if there are still discrepancies - "Zomg, you got 5 questions in a row right, you cheatz". Could you just say arbitrarily that all are cheaters?

Well, changing the psydex wouldn't do anything, because there are still other poke-resources on the internet :O

But I think everyone should just play honestly, and if they don't, well shame on them >:(

BTW Krisp if you want something to laugh at...

You never know Krisp, you never know...

Hopefully, I won't buzz in too early. I probably could have gotten a better score.

To be honest, it's trivia that gets the cheaters. I've only done about two of those questions total counting each Jeopardy I've done. Getting five questions in a row is not uncommon, and it wouldn't raise serious suspicion of a cheater. All you have to do is say buzz first and you have your shot. What lets you know that someone could be cheating is if they don't answer (or buzz) for a period of time, and then suddenly come up with the answer. Of course, it could be argued that the person was thinking that whole time. I've suspected many different people of cheating before, and no one can stop that.

On the other hand, that doesn't mean that I don't have back up plans specifically for cheaters. I'm not as harsh as other people when it comes to proving the cheater, but at least some people have admitted it when they cheat.

Being serious, I've never seen another Pokemon site as well organized as the one we are so fortunate to have. In the case that no one knows the answer right off, I doubt that you could find the answer on some random other site in less than thirty seconds and still even be able to buzz in. Plus, if there are enough wrong answers (four), the question will stop.


As for the occasional people that are awful at Jeopardy, it's not something you apply for; it's more of something that you were made for. I can get rid of people that try to get negatives or even make them look worse. Not knowing the answers and completely failing are different things.

God dammit, Peanut Lover, is it REALLY that necessary to create drama everywhere you go? Believe it or not, you're NOT part of the staff, so you really DON'T need to worry about cheating/lying/whatever. Christ, please, you're a normal member, and nobody (read: nobody) likes your constant nagging/questioning/etc etc about this and that and things that really have NOTHING to do with you. You're getting as bad as garbanzo, or whatever that colombian ex-user's name was, and you know what happened to him.

Anyway, I won't be there, but stasbot will be (assuming my computer will work by then), and it will create stats similar to those of #psypoke's, with a few different changes :)
