IRC Trivia - Help Needed

    If you haven't heard, we've got an IRC channel on EFnet: #buckeyeplanet

    This can be accessed via their web client or your preferred IRC client, here is the web client EFnet provides:

    On to what is important!

    I'm trying to add some features that I think will enhance the experience when a game isn't going, it isn't NLOI day, or there isn't some major story breaking. I'm adding trivia to the bot and need to compile questions that are all related to tOSU. BB73 has given me permission to pillage the trivia game threads, but I would be interested in as many questions as possible. The bot uses a text file to pull questions and answers. Questions and answers are great, but putting them in the correct format is even better! Asterisk is used as a separator. Acceptable formats are below:

    Default question:
    When did the Ohio State University win their last NIT championship*2008

    Question with alternative answers:
    When did the Ohio State University win their last NIT championship*2008*two thousand eight*2k8

    Scramble questions:
    UnScramble this Word: i e s h n a m*heisman

    Multiple answer questions:
    KAOS: What years have the Ohio State University football players won the Heisman trophy*1944*1950*1955*1974*1975*1995*2006

    Any and all help will be appreciated. I encourage everyone to check out the chat room as well. This could be a great place to just shoot the crap when you have nothing better to do or to really get dynamic during game days!

    I think it would be great during games. Plus I sit on my rear all day at work and I find this site drains my productivity, why not throw it all in the trash?

    A place to share and vent with friends would definitely be a plus and also let the moderators enjoy more of the action rather than babysitting every grumpy gus that lets off steam.
