Extra Info and Blurbs

From the webmaster:- 'Quizzes that have explanations or interesting educational blurbs in the 'interesting info' field for each question are preferred. This makes sense -- if you get a question wrong it's nice to know what the correct answer is, and why. So spend a few extra minutes writing up some interesting info for your quizzes.'

In other words, be creative! Don't spoil your quiz by leaving the field 'Interesting Information' lacking for most of your questions. This leaves your quiz 'bland' and resembling a rifle range, question-answer-question-answer... Quizzyland games aren't a school exam paper, question-answer, and no explanation! Full sentences about the answer along with anything that YOU'D find interesting can really spice up your quiz. Some examples:

Who was the 3rd Prime Minister of Australia?
The answer is John Watson, but players need an explanation of why it's correct e.g. the years he was Prime Minister, who the first two were, the years those two were in office, he was the first ever ALP Prime Minister.

Who won the 1961 FA Cup Final?
Here the blurb would give the score in the match, and the name of the losing team. The blurb should (ideally) also state that Tottenham Hostspur were League Champions, and thus became the first team to win the League and Cup Double in the 20th Century.

There are many games online which are good examples of well written and well thought out quizzes, with blurbs for every question. Accordingly, a quiz which has inadequate explanations in this field, for any or all questions, will probably be returned to its creator. Finally, don't just repeat the answer in your blurb.
