A thread stated by you in "KC Chiefs News and Discussion" relating to Chiefs only trivia or in the "Locker Room" if you open it up to All general trivia. As far as letting people know of the contest: I think that starting a thread a week or two prior to the contest advertising it making mention of specific rules in the thread starter would, hopefully, be sufficient. You could post a reply to it each day counting down the days until the start of the contest. This would daily keep the thread atop of the page in the forum list and would be better then simply making it a "sticky thread" keeping it in the "unread" list as well. With this being June all this would need to transpire relatively quickly; I would say the contest would need to begin no later than July first and run for a couple of months at least or until we have football, or until you run out of trivia questions. LOL! You could have one or two questions a day in the trivia thread that would be open for no more then an hour for each question or until the question/s has been correctly answered.
1. Trivia answers may be obtained by whatever means available.
2. Members may start or reply to a thread started by other members for the expressed purpose of answering the current unanswered question will the trivia thread is closed, but only the member who answers it correctly in the "Official" trivia game thread will be given credit for the answer.
3. All site rules: Read Before Posting - Kansas City Chiefs Forums must be adhered to by all participants.
4. All site "Leaders" are ineligible.
These are only suggested contest rules from one mod. I would suggest getting input from all the mods and not the least from Coach himself.
I hope this has been of some assistance kiddo! :smile
I am definitely ok with your idea Connie! Proceed and I an happy to put up chiefscrowd logo'd merchandise as a prize as well. Let me know what you would like from me to get started.
I need help! I'm already confused, LOL. I'm okay with whatever rules Coach & mods agree on. I personally don't have an issue with a mod participating, can't imagine any one thinking one of our mods would be dishonest, y'all are as honest as George Washington! haha
Seems to me more members participate in the Chiefs forums than Locker Room, so that is where I think it would be best to post initial announcement of the contest, rules, etc.. The contest itself we could have in the Locker Room, or Chiefs forum too for that matter, since it is Chiefs related.
Could one of you mods type out the rules after y'all decide them, that's where I begin to have confusion?
Coach has offered to add prizes too, which means we could have a first, second & third place...what do y'all think about that? Heck, maybe we could allow the first place winner to choose whichever prize they want. Someone could win who already has an autographed Len Dawson mini helmet, prefer one of the prizes Coach chooses to offer instead?
Anyway, I'll start researching questions and accuracy of answers, in the meantime if y'all could sort out the rules for me that would help alot! I like the idea of giving members time to come here & read the announcement, so starting the contest a couple weeks after the initial announcement thread is made is cool with me too TS. :)
The rules I posted are, obviously, tentative and whatever rules you and the rest of the leadership can think of and feel are necessary I will gladly support as long as there is a clear consensus regarding they're implementation. I just feel that the simpler and less complicated the rules are the better, but I could be wrong. As far as the thread announcing the contest and the contest thread itself goes: I'm of the opinion that if it is all Chiefs related then there's no need to go outside the Chiefs discussion forum. Anyone of the leadership members can start the thread announcing the contest that will be posted site wide in all forums as a site wide announcement. We just need your go ahead Connie whenever your ready after the rules have been agreed upon to your liking.
So, I guess where I'm at in this process is: does anyone else have any other thoughts regarding the rules I have already posted?
What is all this?
