I have come up with many unique ideas for quizzes. Many don't work out and I delete the quiz. At other times an editor will recommend too many changes to make the subject possible.

What I would like to see, if not already done, are recommendations by people for quiz subjects that they would like to see.

I endorse this idea.

It might be useful to have a featured area where such ideas and suggestions could be aired. I would very much like to produce quizzes which might be appreciated, especially if quirky enough to interest me of course, and admit to seeking inspiration from reading these forums and the Message Board.

Just a quick note on this-

Both editors and quiz writers are frustrated when a writer spends a lot of time writing a quiz and an editor spends a lot of time editing it, and then the quiz is deleted. It's a lot of wasted time and effort.

Please, if you aren't sure that a quiz subject will fly, send an editor in the category a message and ask about the quiz before writing it! It saves us all a lot of grief.

One thing I'd like to see is more animal quizzes that don't feature dogs and horses. The Global Trivia challenge "animals" quizzes are at least half comprised of dogs and horses questions.
