So uhm, it doesn't seem like the last question sparked much interest.
Looking at it now I see it would be difficult to have come up with a
creative response considering the number of mirror responses and lack of
participation, so my bad on that! Ups and downs are part of life, but
we'll keep on trucking and move onto the next question! Information:
time an article is posted, it will contain a question to be answered.
Just post your answer in the comments section of the article to
participate. Easy right? The best answer and runner ups will be chosen
by a panel of judges that includes: Foodies, Yoshinendo, Zano,
OrangeFox, Toxic Spectrum, Volke Aeno, Nether Specter, and SGOlympian.
the name, I will be hosting this biweekly (every other week) on either
Thursday or Friday. The specific day depends on the number of other
articles that need to be posted for the week.
The articles will
contain the response of the winner and up to 3 runner ups for the
previous question. If participation is low, there will be fewer runner
ups; the minimum number of entrants for a contest to be judged is 4.
Submissions will close one week after the article is posted. Guidelines:
- As stated above, just post a comment to this article to participate.
None of the questions will have a direct, correct answer. If one does,
the question chosen was bad and I give you permission to type angrily at
- With that in mind, make sure your answer is creative! Being
clever, witty, and/or funny will heavily influence your chances (in your
favor, of course) of having the best answer! If you want to be really
thorough, maybe even consider the preferences of the judges.
possible to answer some of the questions in one sentence, but writing
slightly longer responses will most likely help you win. However, if
your one-liner is amazing we won’t discount it just because it is short.
Similarly, if you submit a wall of text with nothing of substance don’t
expect to win just because your answer is long.
- Your answer must pertain to the question.
- You may only post one answer. If you post more than one, only the first will be looked at.
- Keep your answers appropriate.
- Proper grammar and punctuation helps. Prizes: QotW winner QotW runner up
There is no participation badge due to the nature of the contest
(typing one sentence with no thought can take 10 seconds), so make sure
to put effort into your answers!
Want to suggest a question for future Question of the Weeks?
Send Zano a PM with a subject with something along the lines of: “QotW question suggestion” (or "I love Zano")
question should be Smash/AiB-related, appropriate, and thought
provoking. Questions that have the potential to produce entertaining
answers are also highly preferred. Do not send questions that could
cause a flame war (Ex: Should the community ban MetaKnight?), questions
that can be answered with just yes or no (Ex: Is playing against Ice
Climbers annoying?), or questions with correct answers (Ex: How many
mid-air jumps does Kirby have?).
Here are some past examples to help your question designing:
- Which SSBB character would be the best at playing SSBB?
- You wake up as your main. What do you do?
- If every character was as powerful as they are in their actual game, who would be the best/worst fighter, and why?
questions that are featured will give credit to people who asked them.
You also get a badge! Note: You may not participate in the contest if
the question featured for the contest is the one you suggested. Prize: QotW featured questioner Results:
now, here are the results from the previous competition! The question
was: "If characters from Smash went on a picnic, describe an interesting
situation that might occur?"
★ ★ Winner ★ ★
"Olimar would be accidentally stepped on."Judge’s comments:
"Realistic sizes I see. Squish."
"Get stepped on."
will be no runner ups this time due to lack of participation and no
other responses grabbing more than one judges attention!
Congrats to the winner!
here’s the question for this edition’s Question of the Week! "When a
character is doing well in smash they have their name chanted, who are
these people and why are they watching and cheering?
