Quiz Creation Notes for Video Games

Quiz Creation Guidelines are generic and apply to all categories in Quizzyland. The creation notes in here outline some of the peculiarities which apply only to quizzes in the Video Games category. Before you create a quiz, please play a few games and familiarize yourself with the contents of the Quiz Creation Guidelines and these Notes.

  • Video game titles must be in quotation marks unless they are standing alone as an entire answer.
  • The title or introduction of your quiz must include the system of the game you are writing about. If you are writing about a series of games, this is not needed as some games in different series span different consoles and systems. This ensures that any system variations do not pose a problem.
  • Fill-in-the-blank answers should not have quotation marks or other punctuation. There should be only one discernible answer to a FITB question. Answers such as 'Mario & Zelda' will not be acceptable as they are completely different answers.
  • Interesting Information must be in complete sentences and should go beyond simply giving the title of a video game or simply stating the question and answer again. All quizzes in the Video Games category require at least two full sentences of Interesting Information per question. Remember, this is often the most important part of a quiz, so devote some time to it. Please also note that this information should not be your own personal opinion. An editor can send back a quiz based on extremely repetitive or minimal information at their own discretion.
  • All questions should be stand-alone; they should not refer to other questions in the quiz or signify their own place within it since any one of them can be used, at random, for our site's daily/hourly games. A question beginning with "Let's start with..." or "Next up is..." won't make sense if it's in a different spot in a different quiz.
  • Minor typos and spelling errors in quizzes are usually corrected by editors before going online, but quizzes with a significant number of errors will be returned, as will quizzes which do not adhere to the Quiz Creation Guidelines and these Notes. We always recommend having a quiz spell-checked/proofread before submission to the queue; it often makes the wait time significantly shorter!


    If you are a first time quiz creator, then your quiz must be just ten questions in length, and you can not use any fill-in-the-blank questions (as per the template system; not even an editor can make this exception!).

    If you wish to submit quizzes that are 20 or 25 questions in length, please consult one of the editors in this category to see if it suitable. Quizzes with only 10 or 15 questions are expected in most instances, and anything longer could easily be made into a two-part quiz.

    We accept quizzes about Flash and app-based games on a case-by-case basis. Please consult an editor if you wish to base a question/quiz on an internet-based Flash game.


    Do not submit quizzes with the following:
  • Offensive language or material (FunTrivia's audience is a large one, and we aim to keep it friendly).
  • Long or hard-to-spell fill-in-the-blank answers (out of fairness to the players; we're looking for trivia and not a spelling bee).
  • Silly give-away answers (like "who cares," "I don't know," etc.).
  • Questions which will have a tendency to change as time passes. While something may be true at the current time, patches and released builds (especially in online games) will result in certain accommodations and this may result in wrong answers and informstion. This should not be remedied by time-stamping the quiz (ie. saying it's correct "as of...a certain date"). We will not accept questions/information about unreleased/unpublished games.
  • Questions about video game cover art, release dates, and ratings (as they vary around the world and over time).
  • Scrambles/anagrams (anagrams are only allowed in quizzes going to the Video Game Wordplay subcategory).

    If you have any questions or concerns about your own submitted questions, please ask an editor for clarification.


    Regarding the rejection of quizzes by editors: if your quiz is rejected, don't get upset - make the suggested changes and resubmit. If you don't understand the rejection note, please reply to the editor and politely ask for help and clarification. We will make sure that anyone who puts some effort forward will get his or her quiz online and will offer any help we can. Remember, most first-time quiz writers will probably get at least one correction notice; even our most prolific authors get them occasionally. After a few quizzes, the guidelines will probably become second nature. :)

    When filing a Correction Note, keep in mind that this is a fun site, not a competition, and the points earned are just for fun. Also keep in mind that there are many children and young adults making some of these quizzes so try to "cut them some slack" about their errors. Rude and offensive remarks (even if they are to your friends) will be reported to the administrators and could result in your suspension or removal from this site. When making a correction, make certain your information is correct and be sure to include the question number so we can find the error. All error reports are evaluated.


    That's it! Again, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact either kyleisalive or eburge, your category editors, if you have any questions about quizzes, the queues, or editing. We're here to help!
