I haven't spend a whole lot of time on this site, and there's a reason why. I can review it without even having to spend more than ten minutes on it. First of all, this is a trivia site that promises money to the person with the most points at the end of the week. Points are accumulated by answering questions correctly, adding questions, and surfing sites with their "site surfer" (which, conveniently was out of service for maintenance when I tried using it). Here's how it works: A trivia question is posted on the site once every ten minutes. If you answer the question correctly (multiple choice) you get 2 points. Also, there is a "hard question" in addition to the regular question. If you answer the hard question correctly, you get 7 points. Three points for adding your own question (which I'm not sure how that goes, as my question is still awaiting moderation), and 1 point for Surfing a Site (e.g. their advertisers sites, which is down for repair).
Now, first I would like to note that whoever is in charge of typing the info on the website, faq's, how it works, etc.. has HORRIBLE grammar and spelling. It's not even a word here or there, it's the same word, multiple times in some cases (e.g. using "loose" instead of "lose" several times, etc), or regarding bad grammar, there are a lot of sentences that should actually be two sentences, not one (example: you did not get the question right you can try again in ten minutes.) That should really be two sentences, not one. I'm not the grammar police or anything, but these are really obvious mistakes. It makes the website look unprofessional right off the bat.
Another gripe I have is that they state that the person at the end of the week with the most points wins. Now, I went over how points are accumulated, correct? Answering a regular question is 2 points, answering a hard question is 7 points, and adding a question is 3.
EACH question (both regular and hard, together) runs on the site for TEN minutes. Then the two questions are changed to two different questions. Considering that the site surf option is receiving maintenance (for God knows how long), and the questions users submit have to be moderated and then MAYBE will be chosen for a question on the site, the basis of the points you can potentially receive come from answering questions correctly.
With that said.....
I have my own question. What is the INTERNET???
Anyone who is on this website is online, and anyone who is online has access to the information highway. You can find the answer to ANYTHING in the world, just by taking a few seconds to type it in your browser's search bar! The fact that EACH question on this site runs for TEN WHOLE MINUTES is pretty much an INVITATION to cheat!!! Ridiculous!
Well, needless to say, my first trip to this website was not a great one. TriviaBucks.com did not make a good first impression on me. We'll see what happens and whether my question actually does accumulate three points, if the site surfer gets fixed this century, and if the moderators/creators/whoever of the site start using spell check.
