Week 7 (September 16th - 22nd) Special Rules.

The Trivia Contest will take a different turn this week.


We're going to hold 3 sessions, of 40 questions each. 1 Point per question, first right answer gets the point. Additionally, we will be giving out 1 prize per session, instead of the usual 1 prize per week. To test your knowledge, all you have to do is show up in #animenewsnetwork channel on DALnet at the scheduled times. These sessions are open to everyone, not just forum members!

The sessions will be on Wednesday at 7pm, Thursday at 8pm and Saturday at 4pm, eastern standard time. Try to get in at least 10 minutes ahead of time.

Dalnet's webpage also provides a Javachat that everyone should be able to use

For the 3rd "IRC" session we will be moving away from IRC and onto a single server html chat. This should make the session more accessible to more people, and remove some lag issues.
