    No, I'm not asking questions here. That's the theme's name.

    Link: Removed because of reasons.

    This is simpliest the stupidiest theme I ever made. Not even joking here, it's an idea I thought it was so stupid that it was worth the trouble of coding it (although I didn't test it, but it doesn't even matter).
    This is basically a trivia game. Each player must answer 3 questions, and those who succeed at that win the game.

    Now I dare you to make a theme stupidier than this one :3

    EDIT: Want to submit questions to the theme? Use this link: http://goo.gl/qDHWL1

    Idk, but it'll be a time when we all know the questions and it won't be as fun as it was before. Loving the idea anyway.

    It's not about making it stupid, but making it stupid while still playable.

    Next challenge: Play Mafia at Trivia channel? :3

    Big thread revival because new stuff.

    I'm testing a way to make it possible for people to submit questions for the theme. Use this form http://goo.gl/qDHWL1 to create questions, then I will review them and add to the theme when possible.

    P.S.: You don't need to put the possible choices in the question, a script will deal with that. e.g.: You don't need to put "Who's the coolest? Type /bulbasaur, /charmander or /squirtle" in the question field, simply putting "Who's the coolest?" and then filling the answers fields normally is enough.
    P.S.2: The source field is only really necessary for the Pokémon Games category, you can skip for the other ones.

    I'm also thinking about adding a 4th category (would be between the current Q2 and Q3), and it would have 4 choices with 1 being correct. I need ideas for the theme of this new category. I want something remarkably different from the other 3 categories (Capitals, Pokémon Games and Mafia Themes) which is not too niche for the general PO population. Ideas given so far include Anime/Manga, Movies and Sports. Someone also suggested simply "Games", but that would overlap a bit with Pokémon Games. More ideas are appreciated.

    But wouldn't Anime/Manga overlap with Mafia Themes?

    It could be helpful to reduce the seconds per round. Especially for capitals, there's more than enough time to open google and look up the answers. Answers to some of the Pokémon Games can be looked up in team-builder. Ultimately you can't prevent cheating, but reducing the ticks would make it less viable. Also, if you are planning to add round 4, it will take 2 minutes to answer 4 questions, which seems excessive. Reduce to 25 or 20 per round imo, maybe even fewer for question 1.

    For the new third category, Anime/Manga would probably be too inaccessible for some of the PO population, and since Questions always uses the same categories it would be a bit unfair to someone who just doesn't watch anime/read manga. But the same can be said for any category that isn't related to PO or global geography, so it's a bit of a dilemma. You could try making Q3 'miscellaneous' meaning that it's either Anime/Manga, Sports, or Games, so it would be a bit more evenly distributed. That's probably the best way to add something that isn't in the PO playerbase niche.

    I will look into making the turns shorter.

    Misc category is an interesting idea. Another idea I just had was Animals, which is something global enough (inb4 "it overlaps with pokémon").

    On a different note, I may need to write some guidelines for questions submissions sometime, but just some notes for now:
    1. When writing answers, don't worry about putting or removing spaces. A script will take care of that.
    2. Q2 category is Pokémon Games. Stuff about the anime will not be added.
    3. There's a field for adding your username if you feel like it. I may add that to the question someday (something like "Question submitted by RiceKirby" below the question).

    You can always do a Science category. Something that probably won't overlap with any of the other categories, and relatively is accessible to almost everyone.
    Example Question:
    Which of these is NOT an organic substance?
    /oxygen, /carbohydrates, /lipids, /proteins

    That error message is making no sense. There's nothing about a 'parts' array in the line 163 of the Mafia script. I can't even tell if that's related to the theme at all or if it's an error thrown by someone using another mafia command.
    Edit: Yeah, seems like it was not an error with the theme.
