Here's something I would love, both as a quiz author and a quiz taker, to see added to this site. Would it be feasible, practical, and easy enough to program?

To explain the need, let me describe a quiz I took and really enjoyed tonight. The quiz was by Goochy, and called, "Do you know your continents?" In each question, a country was described, and rather than identify the country, you simply had to choose which continent the country in question lay on.

Now the problem: At the end of the quiz, I was as usual told which answers I'd gotten right, which I'd gotten wrong, and in the latter case, what the correct answers were. However, it should be obvious that in no case were the actual countries in question revealed. And I wanted to know the identity of some of the countries Goochy had described.

I suppose I could pester the author with an email, but if dozens of quiz-takers did that, it might become tedious. My suggested enhancement to the site would be for quiz authors to optionally associate with each question an annotation that would be displayed with the quiz answers, in order to provide a bit more information to the quiz-taker when appropriate.

Look, if something like this would require a dreadful reconstruction of the Sploofus database, or the commitment of gigabytes more storage, forget I said anything. But if such an enhancement would be relatively painless, would people appreciate and utilize this idea?

Considering the potential benefits, this would be relatively painless to setup. Please submit a support ticket with such fine ideas so that they are not missed - and can be properly addressed.

This is a very cool idea! I might want to go back and add info to old quizzes too!
