This must be the easiest quest set ever...

Look, I understand that the fine folks at Whiskey gotta get paid, but seriously...handing over a whole quest set ("Next Class") just as a stupid ad for Best Buy laptops? Seems a bit lame. If you're going to do that, at the very least make the quest a bit more fun than "view someone's profile" or "use an 8+ character word on the forums."  How about "convince the Old Spice guy to mention Anime Vice in a viral YouTube video while making it sound manly?" Or "fill out information on an episode of a series you hate, then cry in shame as it becomes a guilty pleasure of yours."
 
I trust that no one will really need any help for this "Next Class" quest, but for those who lack the necessary two or more brain cells, here are some hints...
 
  1. Gee, there's a text box underneath this news/opinion story on AV that I can type stuff in. I wonder what I should use it for?
  2. I'm a big boy when I use big words in my comments and posts, often ending in something that earns a warning from the moderators!
  3. Huh, what are my friends up to?
  4. Hey, look at that, [USER X] is also cruising this site! It's a good thing we follow each other, it's almost like having a real friend!
  5. Grandma, don't eat the yellow snow, try the yellow link instead!

If the choice is between giving away easy XP and stay afloat or closing up shop, I side for easy XP and staying afloat.  Also, some super complex quest that almost nobody can do is probably the total opposite of what an advertiser would want.  Plus it's Best Buy.  What could they possible do for an anime site other than make us click links to their online store (which we only had to do one of). 
 
If you must complain, complain to Viz, Funimation, Crunchyroll, Bandai, Tokyo Pop etc for not advertising on an anime site that could create something compelling and engaging for the audience.

@Kelleth: Same here....I was the 2nd one to finish this after it first appeared yesterday. At least it is nice to see Best Buy take notice in AnimeVice and help support it.

Perhaps the ease of this quest will mean we'll have enough participants to reach the bonus. The last few didn't seem to get enough interest.

@ShadowKnight508:  Hmmm maybe we can get sponsoring from Bol.com too!? ^^ (its practically Best Buy for me at the moment)

Why not try doing a promotional tie-in for a future Quest set for anything like Rightstuf or other anime selling online stores? If possible, maybe even offer prizes for a set number of people who are the first to complete it. Could motivate more people into doing it if they get awarded something for it and it brings in consumers for those particular sites.
