Have a go at making one !

Hi All

Anyone can make a mini competition. 
You earn good points for setting one up. 
Some tips...

* one Mini competition per person at a time please
* Should have a CLEAR and MEANINGful topic / title
* If you make a mini comp then YOU are responsible for coming back and marking it say 1 to 2 weeks later
* If it is popular then we may moderate it so you can mark it earlier
* Recommend easy to answer / easy to mark. 
* Multi-Guess is a good format and you can have a lot of fun cooking up fun misleading funny answers
* Keep them short say 3 to 5 questions
* Range of questions and difficulty

 

If you keep it to bright sparks sorts of things then we will award more points to the creator of the minicompetition.

Award less points for general topics but more points for relevant topics.
It is better if it is about what bright is ABOUT...
E.g.
... If it is about Hi tech, Electronics, Careers, Programming etc
... If it makes people think and look and do research in the same general sorts of topics
... Breakthough technologies or discoveries

No problem with making general competitions about anything.  Maths puzzles etc.   We are just encouraging keeping a bit on topic or discussion that is of general interest. It is too easy to get distracted by endless ghee whizzy video and over the top sensational 'techo stuff' that is on;ly put up there to help sell advertising in a lot of cases.
