Default What about an idea for a competition?

How about some sort of competition on here, for everyone to get into?

Someone would compile a list of questions, invert related, of course.

Someone else might have a spiderling or a spare hissing cockroach they could donate, as a prize.

The first set of correct answers, within a designated period, would win ?

Of course, it would totally rely on people having something to donate, and of course, at the outset, what that was would be known, so that those entering would be aware of what they may be winning.

Might be worth a punt...

It's a cool idea, but wouldn't everybody just get their answers off google?

Ah. That darn internet. Those Luddites were right, all along

I suppose there is the chance of that.

However, it is the same with any competition, I suppose.

People will look to the net for answers, and if the net wasn't around, they would look to books.

On the upside, in looking for the info, they will learn along the way?

Even if people did get answers off of the internet why not put all of the peoples names with the highest scores into hat and pick a winner randomly. That way it encourages many people to research and learn lots about inverts.
