This site was officially launched January 24, 2010 when oh_chloe made a layout for it. At first, it was called The Unofficial Guide to the Nickelodeon's Big Green Help Trivia Game, but its buttons had the text of Big Green Help Guide. On May 15, 2010, it received a new layout and was renamed Big Green Help Guide by the owner of the site, Egg. On September 5, 2010, a new layout was designed by Egg to replace the current layout due to excessive coding problems, but it did not receive its site coding until September 18, 2010, courtesy of Josephine. The site was reopened on September 20, 2010.
The maximum score you can receive is 300 points every time, which has a estimated ratio of 1.64, though the ratio 1.63 is used, and gives you 491 NP. If you gain that score three times, you'll receive a total of 1,473 NP.
To start the game, open the small window in which the game is played, then when you see the option, click Start Game in the upper right corner. You can also choose to read about Nickelodeon's work to protect the environment. Nickelodeon's Big Green Help Trivia has no time limit for answering a question. The question has fully loaded when the background and pictures have stopped moving into and across the screen, but the answer can be selected while it is still loading.
When you answer a question correctly, a speech bubble with a phrase relating to protecting the environment and a statement that the answer was what you chose will come up. When you answer a question incorrectly, a red X will come up and the game will state which choice the correct answer was. You must click Continue to go on to the next question. For full NP, it is recommended that you end the game and start over if you miss a question. When the ten questions have been answered, it will come to a screen that has your score and a button to send it and one to restart the game.
