The MTN Y'ello quiz was first of it kind in the Cameroon. It pulled about 10000 participant per day all over the territory.It has been the major headline on both the MTN website and facebook page. The most interesting about this competition was the fact that it was free to register, However, all particiapnts were rewarded . The best per category is given a tablet. Every other participant is offerred free hours of communication during the weekend.
Briefly the quiz consisted of questions from four categories; SPORTS, TECHNOLOGY, MUSIC AND MTN SERVICES. Partcipants must be facebook users. After registering , you simply open the Yello Quiz site and select the category of your choice. You will be offered 20 questions which should be answere as fast as possible to feature among the top. Each question is worth 10points. Every 50 points equals an hour of free communication. 5hours is the maximum number of hours to be won by every participants.Participation stops at 17:00 GMT+1 on Friday for each session which starts on monday.
The quiz was a very good one but did not actually favour every paticipants , especially those whose wish was to win a tablet.
Firstly you must have a fast internet connection to participate. If your internet connection is slow,then the checking epriod too will be log thus giving you a longer time spent per question
secondly,no room was given for transparency. This is because there was no option for participants to sign in directly on the quiz site.Participants could view all the possible questions before answering.
Another problem was error messages during participation. An example was "an expected error occured please move tp the next question" Sometimes you will have to refresh to continue.
To end with this post, it was the first of its kind in Cameroon.It is one of the few opportunities that Cameroonian could earn online. Internet users were motivated. I rate this quiz as good based on my finding. I wish that other companies in the territory should copy this . I rememebered a bike rider who told me he wanted to create a facebook account to be part of the quiz. It was a great one MTN Cameroon. Bravo to the MTN Y'ello quiz. we hope for the best in terms of your services in the future.
