Here's a thread where members can ask trivia questions and member's can see if they know the answer. How this works is that a member will ask a question and the answer will be hidden by the spoiler button feature, meaning that the answer will not be visible to a viewer until they tap on the spoiler button. This will allow members to see if they can guess the answer, then tap the button to see if they were right.

One last thing, all questions and answers must follow the forum rules, see link in my signature.

OK, here's one to start it off.

What would you find on a billboard outside the town of Biggar, Saskatchewan, Canada?

New York may be big, but this is Biggar

Here are some anotated screenshots to show how to create the spoiler.

Do I get this right: no one needs to post an answer, but everybody is allowed to add another question?
Correct, there's no need to post the answer, it's already there, hidden by the spoiler button. It's not a contest, simply a way for members to exercise their minds in a search for the answer. The spoiler button is there to see if you managed to guess the answer without having to wait for the member who posted the question to reply. Everyone is welcome to post a question of their own but that is not mandatory.
