Welcome

This site, Big Green Help Guide, is a guide for the game Nickelodeon's Big Green Help Trivia. It provides the answers to all of the questions that can be asked. The icon to the left of this text is a link to the game.

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.

News

3/18/11 - I cleared affiliates and fixed buttons. The game was on the site for over one year. I'm still a little shocked. After a while, even when you haven't really done much with a site, you sort of get attached. I was thinking of editing some content and possible making a new layout, but obviously, that's no longer required. Right now, I'm deliberating between a closed sign and changing all the questions into statements so people can continue to learn about the environment.

3/17/11 - Nickelodeon's Big Green Help Trivia was removed from the site. Plans for the site will be posted later. I am aware of major coding and site errors.

2/2/11 - The site wasn't majorly affected by the recent coding filters. Other than the fact that text areas and new windows are totaled on here, there isn't much trouble. I decided to leave the coding as it is for now, since I'm not really sure what I can do right now.

1/22/11 - News entries have been cleared. I removed Gossamer Webs Ixi as an affiliate. I organized the link back buttons.

Intro

Overview

Nickelodeon's Big Green Help Trivia can be found here. Nickelodeon's Big Green Help Trivia promotes environmentally friendly actions to save the planet. The game asks you ten multiple-choice questions about the environment in hopes that you will learn the facts while answering them.

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.

Disclaimer

Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee that the game will perpetually remain on the site. It is classified as a sponsor game for Nickelodeon. Be aware that it may be taken off at any time, but at least for as long as I have maintained this guide, it has been on this site.
