  7. Quiz Creation Notes for Movies Trivia


Quiz Creation Guidelines are generic and apply to all categories in Quizzyland. The creation notes in here outline some of the peculiarites which apply only to movies quizzes.

[ 1 ] Movie quizzes should be about films that have had a theatrical release, and players should be able to answer questions by having watched the movie and its credits. If extra knowledge (for example DVD extras) is required, this must be stated in the introduction.
[ 2 ] Interesting information should be both relevant and factual (not just opinion), and give players a little something extra. Two or three sentences that add to the question and answer are the goal. For Match quizzes a bit more info is requested.
[ 3 ] Please avoid questions about picky details, such as license plate numbers, how many shots were fired, the colour of someone's shirt, etc, which will not be accepted unless there is a good reason for a player to remember the answer, such as a plot point turning on that detail. We encourage all players to take quizzes that already exist on your chosen topic so that you can better come up with questions that haven't been asked already.
[ 4 ] Questions containing objectionable language (including quotes) will not be accepted. Country-specific questions, such as release dates, and monetary questions are unacceptable as the answers may vary. Fill in the blank questions should be kept to no more than two in a ten question quiz (except in Movies Word Play). For photo quizzes, no screenshots from movies or recognizable faces please.
[ 5 ] Ten or fifteen question quizzes are preferred for Movies quizzes. If you have enough questions for a longer quiz, consider making two quizzes instead.

Please note that actor and character names must be spelled correctly e.g. Nicolas Cage not Nicholas Cage. If you don't know the correct spelling, or are unsure, look it up at www.imdb.com, which is an excellent resource for verifying information.
