I have an idea for a 5-question quiz, but when I go to "create new quiz", the smallest option for # of questions is 10. I've seen a number of 5-question quizzes online. Are they no longer allowed?

I'm not sure when they cut them off, but, yes, ten is the smallest quiz allowed at this point. Is there a way you can come up with five more? If not, you might try posting in the single question queue.

Ah. Thank you. I'll stop looking, then. Not sure if I can stretch it into a 10-question quiz--definitely wouldn't work for single-question--but I'll certainly consider it.

Here is a thread from 2002, and it looks like they had just dropped five question quizzes then.

Would it be possible now to see five question quizzes come back to select people, similar to the photo quizzes? That would cut down on the poor quality quizzes submitted that seems to have been the problem as to why they were discontinued.

I'd like having the option to write five questions.

As a player, I find them disappointing - I'm just getting interested, and it's over.

Agreed. In my experience, 5Q quizzes are nearly always unsatisfying.

In the days when new 5Q quizzes allowed there was no facility for asking single questions.
