Hey folks! :)

If you haven't seen the group chat break thread yet, go and check that out. As mentioned there, we'll be having our Summer quiz on Tuesday 13th of this month, from 7-8pm. This will be moderated by Leanne.

For anyone unfamiliar with community quizzes, they take place in group chat and have three rounds of 10 questions. One point is awarded for each question, and the first person to answer correctly gets the point (so there are 30 up for grabs in total).

This time, the rounds are:
  1. Entertainment
  2. The Mix trivia
  3. General knowledge

As always, we're looking for you guys to write these rounds for us. This means writing those 10 questions with answers and sending the list over to us to check a few days before the quiz. Ideally, it also means being there for the quiz to host your round (ask the questions and award the point for each one).

The winners of each round will get a prize, and there will also be a prize for the overall winner. Depending on what we have to give away, there may also be something for runners up. Oh, and the hosts will get a little something for helping out.

If you're interested in getting involved, comment below with what round you'd like to write and whether you're also available to host it. If you want to write a round, we'll ask you to send your questions over before Saturday.

Thanks everyone - hopefully we can knock some of the reigning champions off their podium. ;)

Mike & the team

    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    Yeah definitely knock some champions off the podium. Even if we don't knock them all, 1 is the target.

    Hey folks,

    Brilliant! So it looks like we've got...

    @Laine doing The Mix Trivia
    @Millie2787 doing General Knowledge

    If you could all PM us your questions and answers before Saturday, that would be spectacular. I'm assuming you can all host your rounds too, but if not, let us know and someone else can. :)

    Pitch Perfect could definitely be a contender for a bonus round for future quizzes @Jellyelephant. ;)

    Yeet! 😂

    I'd love to include a multi choice question about what my first name is but seems more like Laine trivia than mix trivia 😂 

    I'm buzzing i'll get writing!

    Do you mean @Kasa2103 ;) You accidentally put 2013 instead of 2103. Those things happen though.

    Haha thanks for the love. I can understand that you want to keep your bonus. I think that anyone would. It is also understandable that you want to save the days for when you are actually ill. Enjoy work. If that can happen.

    Definitely the more competitive. 

    Oh and a quick message for @Laine and @Millie2787. On the day of the quiz try and make yourself an avatar like the mods do but instead of saying mod, put it as saying host. I was encouraged to do this last time and I found it really creative and fun and people noticed I was a host and not just someone participating.
