Quiz Creation Notes for World

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 World 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.

The World category explores global cultures and interesting mixed facts about such diverse things as languages, politics, tourist sites and other characteristics of the countries on our Earth. Please feel free to submit quizzes that regard cultures and other unique information about your favorite country or culture! No word scramble quizzes are allowed in this category. Quizzes consisting largely or wholly of very simple questions are *not* accepted.

Language Quizzes: Please always make sure that you give all the information necessary to enable people to *use the answer correctly*. This means that you must give the grammatical gender of nouns (or, if the language doesn't have grammatical gender, say so). Also give the plural if it is irregular. With verbs you must give details of irregularities in an accepted and clear form, for example 'helfen - hilft - half - hat geholfen + dat. - to help'. Bear in mind that your knowledge of the language must be sufficient to deal with any correction notices, and that the latter may even be in the foreign language. If you create a quiz on a language that is not written in Roman characters please use a recognized system of transliteration or transcription.
