Hi all
I want to write an In Other Words quiz for a singer.
Would this go to the Music or Brain Teasers category?

Also, would I need to provide interesting information?

I cannot answer the first of your questions, as I am not an editor. An editor can tell you which category that would go in.

As for the interesting information, that is required now in all quizzes.

If it is all about this particular singer, then it would be considered "specialized knowledge" and would go into Music, in the alphabetical listing of that singer. It would need to follow all the guidleines about In Other Words quizzes, and all Music guidelines. That most definitely includes factual interesting info for every question.

Brain teaser quizzes on entertainment-related topics all go to the appropriate entertainment-related category.
