Arlo and myself are currenty trying to put the final touches on the rules for the season trivia contest that will start on March 25.
One thing we are very unsure about is if we should give a little incentive for people not only to anwer questions, but also to ask some. So for instance, for an answer to count, you would also have to ask a question, or (probably better) you would have to post at least 1 question for every two correct answers you give.
Right now things seem to be running pretty well, but in a competition it might be different. After all, if you're in a good position, asking questions would only give others an opportunity to answer them and catch up, so maybe requiring everybody to ask a certain amount of questions according to the points they have on the scoreboard would be fair?
On the other hand, maybe some folks simply like to answer questions, while others prefer to be quiz masters, so it's pretty stupid to force everybody to do both. And possibly the overall quality will suffer if people have to ask questions although they actually don't want to?
Please give us your input, guys, we'd like to do what you prefer!
