Stale Questions

Date stamping of questions with the phrase "as of November 2001" is no longer acceptable. The question must be reworded or completely rewritten so that it does not require a date stamp and, if it was written in the present tense, the tense may also need to be altered.

Example of a stale question:
How many Oscars has she won, as of November 2001?

One possible alternative:
When she won an Oscar for Best Actress for her role in 'Titanic', it was her ___th Oscar?

Furthermore, the blurb in the field 'Interesting Info about answer' would (for example) explain the answer to players by giving the year and name of the film for her previous Oscar wins, Creators of higher-ranking quizzes would also add extra trivia like which of those films also won Oscar for Best Film, whether her co-star also won an Oscar. Do not write words like 'she has just been nominated for her role in xyz' in your blurb as that phrase has, once again, date stamped the question.

Finally, please avoid using the following words or phrases anywhere in your quiz: now, at the moment, this year, last year, next year, currently, next season, last season, will be, recently, latest etc. The use of any of these words or phrases (in the introduction, in a question or answer, or in the field 'Interesting Info about answer') will, in all likelihood, make your quiz time dependent.
