Welcome back to another edition of Question of the Week! Last edition
was interesting - ccst would have won first place except there's the
rule that a user can't enter the contest in which their question
suggestion was used (for fairness reasons). We forgot about the rule
when judging at first. So this is just a shoutout to say we agreed
overall that one was the best, but unfortunately a badge can't be
awarded for it. Information:
Each time an article is posted, it will contain a question to be
answered. Just post your answer in the comments section of the article
to participate. Easy right? The best answer and runner ups will be
chosen by a panel of judges that includes: Foodies
, Toxic Spectrum
, Zano, OrangeFox
, and Kyrow
Despite the name, I will be hosting this biweekly
(every other week)
either Thursday or Friday. The specific day depends on the number of
other articles that need to be posted for the week.
articles will contain the response of the winner and up to 3 runner
ups for the previous question. If participation is low, there will be
fewer runner ups; the minimum number of entrants for a contest to be
judged is 4. Submissions will close one week after the article is posted. Guidelines:
- As stated above, just post a comment to this article to participate.
- None of the questions will have a direct, correct answer
If one does, the question chosen was bad and I give you permission to
type angrily at me.
- With that in mind, make sure your answer is creative
Being clever, witty, and/or funny will heavily influence your
chances (in your favor, of course) of having the best answer! If you
want to be really thorough, maybe even consider the preferences of
- It’s possible
to answer some of the questions in one sentence, but writing slightly
longer responses will most likely help you win. However, if your
one-liner is amazing we won’t discount it just because it is short.
Similarly, if you submit a wall of text with nothing of substance
don’t expect to win just because your answer is long.
- Your answer must pertain to the question.
- You may only post one answer. If you post more than one, only the
first will be looked at.
- Keep your answers appropriate.
- Proper grammar and punctuation helps. Prizes: QotW winner
QotW runner up
Note: There is no participation badge due to the nature of the
contest (typing one sentence with no thought can take 10 seconds), so
make sure to put effort into your answers!
Want to suggest a question for future Question of the Weeks?
Send Foodies a PM with a subject with something along the lines of:
“QotW question suggestion”
Your question should be Smash/AiB-related, appropriate
, and thought provoking
. Questions that have the potential to produce entertaining answers are also highly preferred. Do not
send questions that could cause a flame war (Ex: Should the
community ban MetaKnight?), questions that can be answered with just
yes or no (Ex: Is playing against Ice Climbers annoying?), or
questions with correct answers (Ex: How many mid-air jumps does Kirby
Here are some past examples to help your question designing:
- Which SSBB character would be the best at playing SSBB?
- You wake up as your main. What do you do?
- If every character was as powerful as they are in their actual
game, who would be the best/worst fighter, and why?
The questions that are featured will give credit to people who asked them. You also get a badge! Note:
You may not participate in the contest if the question featured for the
contest is the one you suggested. Prize: QotW featured questioner Results
And now, here are the results from the previous competition! The
question was: “What would you do if you could spend a day with your
★ ★ Winner
I could spend a day with Pikachu, I would generate infinite
electricity worldwide to homes, businesses, cities and towns to
eliminate the cost(s) of energy completely."
"Not sure if it'd be infinite but it would be a nice boost. Yay for saving money."
"Clever as hell"
"I like this idea! It would be really helpful! My question is.. Have you thought about the poor Pikachu though..?" = Runner ups = Senobekim:
"If I could spend a day with Pit, I think it would be pretty awesome.
The first thing I would do would have him take me up to Heaven. I could
finally see what actually goes on up there, if it exists, what it is
like. Hopefully I would get a chance to see some of my loved ones that
have passed on. Then I would get him to take me to Palutena, so I could
join her army and learn to fight among the ranks of Angels. Perhaps I
would even be given weapons like Pit's with his Angel ring, bow and
detachable blades. I would hopefully do some training and sparring with
Pit, maybe turn into a formidable fighter. I would only get to spend
one day with Pit and in Heaven, but I would hope it would be enough
time to earn my wings. Flying would just be so incredibly cool.
Anyways, that is what I would do if I could spend one day with my main,
"Neat story he put on."
"Very well written short story"
"Another good read! Good job!" Yoshinendo:
a day with Yoshi will be quite an adventure. First we'll be trying
out all the restaurants in the area...and subsequently get kicked
because the owner and managers believe I brought a pet inside the
restaurants. Afterwards I'll take Yoshi to a farmer's market because he
has been itching to eat some fruit, only to find out that they ran
out of melons and watermelons. (Green Yoshi is Green.) He takes out
his frustration by swallowing all the bystanders, turning them into
eggs, and tossing them at all the stands. To cap off the day, we're
going to play his favorite game, Yoshi's Story. Unfortunately, Yoshi
believes the fruits on the TV are real and eats the TV. Overall, it
would be an interesting day.”
"Swallowing bystanders and throwing them as eggs heh"
"Yoshi will eat you if you don't vote for his."
"I kinda feel sorry for Yoshi, bathroom break comes later!" File:
"If I could spend a day with Pikachu, I would encourage (force) him to
mate with other mice, that way I could breed a new species of electric
rodents, which would provide everyone with free electricity."
"Forcing Pika to breed with mice for the worlds benefit? GENIUS"
"Pretty much the same idea as Horsy's."
Congrats to the winner and runnerups!
