    Default #trivia

    ARE YOU GOOD AT TRIVIA?

    DO YOU LIKE COMPETING AGAINST OTHERS DIRECTLY IN A COMPETITION OF FINAL FANTASY KNOWLEDGE?

    THINK YOU CAN BEAT MIKE "NERDFINGERS" THOMAS NAMING THE ELEMENTS OF THE PERIODIC TABLE?

    THEN #TRIVIA IS FOR YOU!

    For the uninitiated, #trivia is a separate channel on the chat server. If you're not too good at chat-related things in general, once you're in the chatroom you only need to type "/join #trivia" to participate. For those who remember the OLD #trivia, this is pretty much the same bot Jebus used to run, with some historic scores carried over and all of the themes we could find, plus others.

    It's available 24/7! Yes, that means NOW! AND it's automated.

    So, if you're a fan of chat, come on in and try it out! If you've never used the chat, use it as an excuse to try out chat! If you're in the middle, you still need to play #trivia damnit.

    (Additionally, there's the generic trivia containing nearly 230,000 questions.)

    Don't see any themes you like? Make your own! In a plain-text editor of your choice, make a .txt file with each question on a new line. The format is as follows: "Question?*Answer*Alternate Answer".

    For example, if you made a line such as "What is one plus one?*Two*2", The question would appear as "What is one plus one?", the 'official' answer (for hints, etc.) would be "Two", but 2 would also be an accepted answer.

    If you feel like contributing, but don't want to make a new theme? That's fine, too! A lot of these existing themes are pretty sparse and could use some love. Jiro, for example, has volunteered to copy edit what amounts to a buttload of questions.

    If you do make a theme, you'll need to get it to me somehow so I can add it to the bot. That's as simple as adding it as an attachment to a post in this thread, or as complicated as hosting it elsewhere on a site like dropbox or something, I don't know. Notifying me thought a PM afterwards would be handy, since then I'll know to check it out. Conversely, if you want to try adding some questions to a theme I'll happily send you the current file to ammend.

    I am terrible at trivia and the only reason I would enter that room is to make the current worst player feel better about no longer being the current worst player.

    Looks like one Loony_BoB just submitted a theme based around EoFF itself! Also he's too lazy to ask for help in this thread, having make about 120 questions and getting bored.

    So help him out, that the circlejerk can be complete.

    I use to frequent the hell out of #trivia before I disappeared from chat for 6 months. We should schedule times to play! It would be really awesome to lose to most of you.

    Towns has submitted another self-indulgent EoFF-based theme, this time based on unscrambling members' usernames.

    Sure was fun trying to get it to actually work :I
