It's awesome, thanks for working that into the site Terry and thanks for writing the first Photo Quiz Kyle.

I hope it works out for more of these to be done in the future.

Very nice quiz! Though people should note that it only works in HTML, not Flash.

Details to come soon.

I'll open it up to editors first for a while to give it a good test.
Then we'll open it to some of our more prolific authors.

THAT'S AWESOME!

Will the format also be available to single questions as well and for other topics such as non-descript objects, plant materials and animals? Have you sorted issues such as image load time affecting the time to answer each question, i.o.w., will these only be in untimed games for the start?

WOW.

I'll say that again... WOW : )

I guess I'd better get busy and write more quizzes as I'm more than likely not in the "prolific" group. But I'd LOVE to "write" one of these once the specific rules are set!

Good job Kyle!

Part one: there are currently no plans to make the single-qs photo-style. We're still working on the template for the quizzes. There are not yet plans to make hourlies or dailies either. It's still very early.
Photo quiz questions, like Brain Teasers quiz questions, will not be placed into hourlies or dailies either.

Part two: we're working on the dos and don'ts at the moment. Most creative common image banks will be fair game. Personal shots are also good to use. All photos will require proper accreditation and editors will need to ensure that the uses of certain pictures are fair and not illegal.

They will not be in any games from the start.

Thanks. I guess I meant untimed quizzes rather than games.

Most of the code for photo quizzes is complete. Editors will be testing it out over the next week or so!

Could it be your default values for displaying images from unknown sources?
