...are likely those entered in this contest. That's okay, though; we're here to have fun and be ridiculous by entering the craziest and hopefully wittiest questions possible.
 

Q&A Contest #2!

 

Things will work the way they did in the last contest. That is, you will be given three categories, each corresponding to a given "answer." Your job is then to come up with a question that fits the answer, but with all the necessary creative liberties. Puns, wit, onomatopoeia, metonymy? I dunno. But just be awesome and have fun. Here are the three answer categories:
 
1. "Well, if you click on that, you might end up banning yourself. Please contact Black Six if you want access instead."
2. "That's odd; when I was an OBZPC, that never happened. Try logging out and back in again."
3. "What you're seeing is intended. However, please refrain from entering any value greater than '5.'"
 
Each category will therefore have a winner!
 
Procedures:
 
You are allowed one entry per day! You may therefore enter as many questions as possible into as many categories as you like to increase your odds of winning. However, the competition will also increase this way, so pick a strategy accordingly!
 
Please use the following entry form:
 
Member name:

 

Answer category: [e.g. 1, 2, or 3]

 

Entry question:
 
Please post your entries in this separate, pinned topic. This topic will be kept open for discussion, questions, and the like. This means that entry topics in Q&A are not allowed. I want to keep this forum fully functional during the contest. Some members might have actual questions, after all.
 
Entry Requirements:
 
Please keep your questions relevant; i.e., no nonsense strings of letters or anything of the like. Your job is to be witty and creative. To that end...
 
There is no minimum or maximum length for questions. But keep in mind that brevity can be either your ally or your enemy, depending on what you're entering.
 
General Rules:
 
Again, one entry per day per member. Which category you choose each day is up to you.
 
Please do not edit your entry without permission once it is posted. If you need permission to correct a typo (for example), please contact me, Velox, or Sumiki.
 
No mass advertising on BZPower. That is, sending out PMs to random members in hopes of bettering your chances is not allowed. Please report any such PMs. Off-site, well, we really can't control what happens - but play fair.
 
BZPower's general rules are to be followed!
 
Respect each other. I've seen what can happen in contests. Please be fair to your fellow contestants. If you have any concerns, please PM me, Velox, or Sumiki about it; do not post in here about it. If you have any questions, then you are free to post in this topic or to PM any of the staff listed above.
 
Entry Period, Voting, and Prizes:
 
Let's give Saturday, December 7th until 11:59 PM Eastern, Saturday, December 21st.
 
Voting will take place in polls. Preliminary voting should run Sunday, December 22nd until Tuesday, December 24th.
Final voting should run late Thursday, December 26th until Saturday, December 28th.
 
Prizes are to be determined. But they should be awesome. Maybe autographed selfies. Hahahahaha no you're probs getting free LEGO stuff.

 

EDIT: Each winner will receive a free set #79000, "Riddles for The Ring" from the Hobbit line! Courtesy of me, no thanks to full parking lots at the mall. If you really want an autographed selfie, well, I guess I can make it happen.

 

Contest Staff:
 
Please PM any one of us if you have concerns, questions, or need to edit an entry.
 
Host: -Windrider-
Assistants: Velox, Sumiki

 

And they're off!

Can we submit a question that could be answered by more than one answer?

I used to have a banner here.

 

But that RPG is dead.

 

What now?

I...I guess? I need a haircut first. : X

In theory, yes, but you'd have to choose only one category for the purposes of entering. You can't enter into multiple categories at once.

Answer category: 2

Entry question:
I recently became an OBZPC. Previously, I had no trouble with logging out. Now, when I click the "Sign Out" link in the upper-right, a dialog box pops up that says, "Now you can never leave." What do I do?

Okay that's absolutely brilliant.
