It’s been a year since Dummy Novels was established. Formerly known as Dummy Translations, our group has transitioned to be known as Dummy Novels back in May 2020. To celebrate this joyous occasion and express our appreciation for all staff and readers who have been part of this journey, we will be hosting a series of events.
There will be 2 main parts to this event. One will include discord prizes, while the other will allow readers to show their appreciation. If you haven’t joined our discord yet, what are you waiting for?! Nonetheless, if you have no discord or decide not to get an account, you are still welcome to take part in the event in the spirit of celebration and stand a chance to have your entry showcased!
📢 Event duration: All events will run from 1 May to 30 May. Any submission should be done latest by 30th May 2021, 23:59, +8 GMT. Winners will be announced on 31st May. Once you are selected, be sure to DM vivi#1040 on discord to claim your prize!
Prize Corner (Event)
🎉 Dummy Trivia!
Welcome to Dummy Trivia where you will be tested on how well you know your favourite dummy! In this trivia quiz, you will receive a random set of questions on little tidbits of Dummy’s history. Answers and clues can be found on our website. You’ll need to answer all five questions correctly to be a part of the lucky draw!
There is no limit to the number of times you may submit a response, but each person will only be counted once in the draw. This means that you are allowed as many retries as you’d like if you get the quiz wrong. You may also obtain additional lucky draw chances by leaving a review on your favourite novel!
You’re free to seek help for questions that you aren’t able to answer on our discord channel #game-hall but sharing of wholesale answers is prohibited!
Prizes: (Lucky draw) 4 x Discord Nitro Classic to be given out
Who is eligible:
Readers: 2 lucky winners
Staff: 2 lucky winners
