    Would you enter the competition? The specifics have yet to be worked out, but basicly it's a group a rounds where you go head to head with your forum members battling each other by solving physics and math problems. Each round you'll have a new problem to answer within a certain amount of time (likely will be 48h). If you answer correctly you move to the next round. Also there will be two level for you to join, either intermidate or advanced. Sign up will start soon!

    Interested? Want to become a PF Science Olympian?

    I think it is a good idea...even if I'm not sharp enough to participate!

    How about the Physics Forum "Special Olympics"? And where do I sign up?

    Have it out, Big Guys! I wouldn't even know who's winning.

    Now back to the Philosophy threads...

    Well, I voted yes but now I wish there was an "undecided" category. What about Astronomy, Political debates, or questions. And Computers too. For instance, I know HTML, what if as a fun round you could have a competition seeing who could make the best website in a certain time frame. A free website like angelfire, freeservers, geocities, etc... You could also ask questions about HTML or other languages...of course i havent even gotten into languages yet so I'd probably do pretty bad, but it would be fun.

    It sounds much better than PF Olympic because I was scared by the word "Olympic".
    So what if everyone wants to post a question at the same time and it turns out to have more than 1 question per day?
  12. Jun 29, 2003 #11
    Only PF staff will be able to post a question and we are co-ordinated.
  13. Jun 29, 2003 #12
    I see, I thought questions would be posted by members, not staffs.

    Does that brain teaser forum have anything to do with this ?
    Anyway, I just wanted to say that, personally, I don't think
    that 15$ award is a good idea. We're not here to earn money
    after all, rather we are here to gain knowledge and intellegent discussion. I'm sure that money can be better used to promote
    PF and pay for the server/band weidth and so on. Just a thought.

    Live long and prosper.

    could there be another league called begginer for me and possable a 4 year old

    oh and i agree that the 15 $ is a bad idea because with the internet and all you could easily get all the answers within 2 days
