Date Stamping of Questions Trivia and Quizzes
Questions where the answer may change as time goes by are what Quizzyland labels as 'time based questions'. Quiz creators have been permitted to date stamp their question with the words 'as of November 2001', especially with questions written in the present tense, so that the answer is fixed and cannot change. However, this date stamping creates questions which become stale as time goes by and, accordingly, date stamping of questions 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. If this is not possible the question must be removed and replaced, it will simply not work in an online environment. Some examples of a time-based/stale questions, and how they can be rewritten:
Finally, please avoid using the following words or phrases anywhere in your quiz: now, at the moment, this year, last year, next year, currently, present, 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.
