I will be providing the top 5 answer credits, along with a 1,000cc for the fastest answer given in the round.

If anyone would like to donate cc's to increase the #1 pot size, they are welcome to. If you choose to, please send the credits to 'GolphersGopher' with a comment in the box for the ROC Trivia. (any donation without the ROC Trivia in the comment will be assumed an act of kindness :P)

More competitions will come in the future, and everyone is encouraged to play, donate or give suggestions!

There has been a slight change in the time. Sorry about the changes. As mentioned in OP, more interest will mean an increase in price.

Damn. unfortunately that was going for atleast some people. but if this one is successful then we will hold more at different times so it is suitable for everyone.

how do we get the questions?

Once the trivia starts, there is a bot that will start with the questions. As mentioned in OP there are 6 categories that are jumbled up.

No one knows of the questions except Adam and myself who are both not participtating in the event but only monitoring.

3.5 hrs to go !

The competition lasted about 15 minutes, for 50 questions of random general trivia. Congratulations to everyone who won some easy CC's and thank you for everyone who participated!

We had some comments about the time of the competition, and we would like some suggestions on the best SERVER time to host these competitions. We also would like some suggestions on different trivia types (sports, movies, scramble etc.) people would enjoy participating in! We are obviously somewhat limited in specific question types, but once not too difficult (possibly an ROC only trivia) can be written, or found. :)

Feedback is helpful!
