Previous System[edit]

WikiJeopardy was available for live viewing via here. During it's two-year run, it had only had one episode, which has never been documented. The pilot aired as a live broadcast on December 18, 2008. Reservations were available at the reservations page.


The first 15 minutes was for everyone to join in. First all players buzz in to find out who selects the question. Players can buzz in by entering buzz_in or just buzz. Then the host gives a 5 second warning and then asks the question, then a random 5 to 10 seconds to say "buzz in now" is given and first to buzz will have 45 seconds to answer. And so on for the next 15 minutes until double Jeopardy. Then Final Jeopardy has a choice, a b or c as a random wager. Final shouldn't take longer than 90 seconds. Rounds were originally to be logged, but the pilot was never recorded. Example:

Possible Spinoff[edit]

The show's executive producer is considering a remake, with the aid of bots, specifically named "JepBot". Unfortunately, the process will require a volunteer to write the three bots. The new show will also require a qualification process. The producer has notes for the volunteer as well as notes for himself if anyone is willing to participate.
