Method 1 - First-Come-First-Serve: Basically what we have been doing. The first to guess the anime/hint get the points and the later one bites the dust. This will no doubts give the disadvantages to players who weren't online at the release time, but I plan to counter that by releasing different games at different time of the day.
Method 2 - Hide And Seek: Players will submit their guesses through PM without knowing if they did it right or wrong. The right answer will be released after a specific amount of time, and all correct guesses will be awarded by proper points. The rest of the unsolved questions are up for first-come-first-serve, if any. While this method makes sure the game will be more fair, sometimes it simply finishes after the answers are revealed. There will be no competitive elements like before, and players sometimes have only one try (when they submit their guesses through PM) before the game is over, while they may have 2 or more sounded theory of the correct answer in their head.
Of course, If you have any other ideas, do leave the suggestion in the topic. It might not be perfect but we can always work on it if there're potentials~
