View Full Version : POLL: New 'OT' Community Thread Choice - You Decide

A simple poll to gauge if there would be enough support in either of the following thread ideas.

1. Rolling Quiz

- Questions can be about anything you like, in keeping with Ubi's Terms of Use.

- Only one question is live at any one time, and only for a maximum of 24 hours - If the correct answer isn't posted, the person who posed the question must post their answer (and source)

- Whoever answers the question correctly gets to pose the next question.

- Use of pictures, photo's etc is permitted in setting questions.

2. Life in the Day

- A combination of a status update (ala Facebook etc) and what you have done that day. This community is worldwide, so we are bound to get some varied and interesting posts.

- Participants can post everyday, but only once can they post their update - otherwise it'll degenerate into a 'chat' or 'BUWYWL' thread.

There is no option for 'Neither' because I'd rather read people's opinions Cas, as opposed to them voting 'Neither' and not saying why.

It's just a couple of idea's thrown out to the community. You not like, fair enough http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yeah, I do not like either of the ideas.

How about we beta test another game:

<span class="ev_code_green">Rules:

The Asker chooses a word/phrase and lists out the number of letters in it in blanks. For example, the phrase "PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN" would be represented by "_ _ _ _ _ _ _ ** _ _ ** _ _ _ ** _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _". Be sure to clearly mark out spaces between words. (Smileys, noticeable symbols etc.)

The Asker will then state the category of the word or phrase. For example, the phrase "PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN" would be categorised under "MOVIES".</span>

<span class="ev_code_blue">Hence, your puzzle would look like this:

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ ** _ _ ** _ _ _ ** _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Category: Movies


As a player, you will have to guess the phrase by asking for letters. For example, if Mr. Z asks for the letter "A", I would fill in my puzzle as such:


_ _ _ A _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ A _ _ _ _ _ A _
Category: Movies


This goes on until someone solves the puzzle!

The Asker edits his post or reposts the thing further on. (We need to try both.)</span>

<span class="ev_code_PURPLE"> No special prizes for the winners, but you get bragging rights (until the next winner, anyway!), as well as a mention on the winners' list. You'll also get to come up with the next puzzle!</span>

Let's try:

_ _ _ _ _ _ ** _ _ _ _
Category: Drinks

Cas answered that one already, but he didn't post the next word riddle. Bleh...

Try your luck with a letter first.

It doesn't have any meaning to it, it's just some random letters. I thought I was typing in english, forgot to switch after typing in russian to you (which you still didn't answer by the way).

Edit: No and no.

@ Lost:

You have already raised the idea for your 'Game' thread elsewhere. This is a poll, in which you are asked to vote and are invited to comment on the two ideas 'Rolling Quiz' or 'Life In The Day'.

You are not this community, you are but one member.

By hijacking this poll, and given you are already under a 1st warning, I am removing your posting rights.

Let me remind you, posting under another user name will result in an IP ban.

I would go for the Rolling Quiz.

Lost gets perma ban? There goes the "Everything we know about I Am Alive" thread. You know, realjambo, your avatar of Shrek is kind of.....kind. Like Shrek. While I disapprove of him "hijacking" the thread, he's just 15. Your act seems too overpowering - I only request you to calm down a bit. Thanks.

dtisalive - You are assuming your friend has been given a perma ban.

I have not specifically said that anywhere, neither am I obliged to comment on the Moderation of a member.

I suggest it is you that needs to 'calm down a bit'.

If anybody else would like to discuss this, I suggest they contact Raide.

We'll give the Poll a day or so to run I think, take it from there.
