Change your profile image for Halloween

Since the majority of Quibblonians celebrate Halloween, let’s all show our Quibblo spirit by changing our profile image for the days leading up to Halloween.

From October 28 to October 31 (but especially on the 31st!), let’s put some Halloween imagery into our avatars. And it doesn’t have to be frightening either, since Halloween costumes come in all varieties, from candy bars to ladybugs to pumpkins to vampires.

Looking forward to seeing all the Halloween profile images on Quibblo!

Quiz Contest 5

There are lots of Halloween quizzes out there but let’s try to create one that tops all others (and apologies to
Quibblonians who have already created some):

Whether it’s about candy, costumes, scary movies, or even graveyard trivia, create a new quiz (minimum 5 questions) that tests our knowledge of Halloween-alia. (Is that a word?)

Give it a descriptive title (not “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), tag it with QC5, and share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo. On Monday, we’ll select 3 winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page. Create yours now!

Deadline: 11:59 pm (EST), Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012. See this post for the rules and winner selection.

Quibblo Story Contest #5

Just in time for Halloween, this subject should appeal to the darker side in us. Write a story (600 words or more) around this topic:

You always knew there was something spooky about your neighbor Dr. Pivens, but, as Halloween approaches, things are getting downright bone-chilling…

Extra credit for using this prop and/or this sentence somewhere in your story:

  • Prop: Antique silver-plated dagger
  • Sentence: “Would you care to see the basement?”

Give it an interesting title (don’t include “Quibblo’s Contest,” “QC,” or similar), remember to check spelling and grammar, tag it with SC5, and share it with all your friends, both on and off Quibblo. On October 30, we’ll select three winners to showcase on the Quibblo home page, just in time for Halloween! Get started now!

Deadline: 11:59 pm (EST), Sunday, October 28, 2012.

Many of you have wanted this change for a long time, and so have we! If you take a look at your Inbox (previously called “Messages), you’ll see that we’ve separated out your private messages.

  • New: Everything that is unread. This list decreases and then empties out as you read items.
  • Messages: Personal messages from other users.
  • Comments: Notifications about comments on your quizzes and stories.
  • Invitations: Quiz and story shares from other members.
  • Requests: Friend requests.
  • All: Everything, both read and unread.

We think this new feature will help all of you find your Quibblo messages more easily. Be sure to let Qlockwork and his team know how much you like it!
