  • trivia questions to get money are a terrible idea :( i first heard about sparkfun from the previous free day and i love your site but i don’t know anything about electronics. i just got some tools that i use all the time and i remember your site every time i do.<br />

    “Goal: Educate new users on the basics.” i’m afraid all you’re going to do is discourage new users from trying to participate, and making people feel bad for trying to answer 10 questions and winding up with negative 30 dollars of credit.<br />

    either give stuff away or don’t do anything. but making people who aren’t experts feel stupid isn’t a good way to promote your site.
