Quiz Creation Notes for Hobbies

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 Hobbies quizzes. Before you create a quiz, please play a few games and familiarise yourself with the contents of Quiz Creation Guidelines and these Notes. Please do NOT write a quiz unless you've played some games and are familiar with the contents of the Guidelines and these Notes. Please keep in mind that creating quizzes isn't about winning - there are no prizes in here for posting an impossible quiz.

The most common errors are:
(a) time reference questions the answer is not a constant, and may change as time goes by,
(b) linked questions inter-dependent questions are not allowed, each question must stand on its own 2 feet,
(c) date stamping of questions with 'as of 2001' which results in questions going stale,
(d) interesting info every question must have interesting info. Opinions should not be used.
(e) inadequate or an absence of blurbs explaining the answer don't leave players hanging, wondering why the answer is correct - it is an author's responsibility to inform players, and
(f) writing a quiz in the present tense should be avoided, write it in the past tense if at all possible.

Minor typos and spelling errors in quizzes are usually corrected by the editors before going online, but quizzes with a significant number of errors will be returned, as will quizzes which do not adhere to the creation guidelines and notes.

If you have a question about a rejection notice that you have received, send a reply to the editor who sent it. Do NOT click the box where you submit your quiz because it's ready to go online and be played. Other editors may not see that you have a question and will reject your quiz again because they think you are just ignoring the notes. Instead, wait for a reply and once your confusion is cleared up, THEN you may re-submit your quiz.

Closed subcategories:
Wines, Beers and Spirits

Restricted subcategories:
Mixed Food and Drink

If you submit or resubmit a quiz to a closed category, it will not be edited and may be deleted without warning. Please do not submit quizzes to us in a closed category as this takes time from the categories that are still open. If a category is closed, then this means we have enough quizzes on that topic at the current time. You are welcome to write to us to ask about a different topic.

Restricted means we are no longer accepting all submissions in this category (including subcategories). In order for your quiz to be considered it must be of exceptional merit and in good condition (as in follows guidelines and uses good English) before it is submitted the first time. Quizzes not following the guidelines, that do not show original thought/questions and that do not use proper English will be rejected without being edited further.
