Quiz Creation Notes for Sports

Quiz Creation Guidelines are generic and apply to all categories in Quizzyland. The notes in here (see the seven topics below) outline some of the peculiarites which apply to sports quizzes. Before you create a quiz, please play a few games and then familiarise yourself with the contents of Quiz Creation Guidelines, and these Notes. Please keep in mind that although sport may be about competition and winning, creating quizzes isn't - there are no prizes in here for posting an impossible quiz.

The seven most common errors are:
(a) time-based questions: the answer is not a constant, and may change as time goes by, e.g. "When did ... win their last title?"
(b) linked questions: inter-dependent questions are not allowed, each question must stand on its own 2 feet,
(c) date stamping of questions or sentences with "as of", "currently", "this year", "now", "still", etc. .. which results in questions going stale,
(d) inadequate or an absence of blurbs explaining the answer: don't leave players hanging; wondering why the answer is correct,
(e) all-time records: are time-based and thus not allowed e.g. "Who is the only player to ... ?", "Who holds the record for ... ?"
(f) do not write a quiz above 10 questions: please consult a Sports category editor. Only in certain circumstances can they be accepted; which is rare.
(g) writing a quiz about one game: or one round during a season or tournament (apart from the final), where it's neither memorable nor famous e.g. one FIFA World Cup qualifying game is not allowed, but this memorable qualifier is: Australia v Samoa 31-0 on 11th April 2001.

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 to the author, as will quizzes which do not adhere to the creation guidelines and notes. Once again, please do NOT write a quiz unless you've played enough games to be confident you're familiar with the contents of the Guidelines and these Notes.
