I had a quiz bounced back because it might cause confusion to our overseas friends. For example using the term "we" in speaking about the American viewpoint during WWII. They also suggested I change the title from "Fun Movies" to something that stated the geographic locale I reside in. I have no problem complying with the requests but started thinking about the ramifications of the changes. Will we have to start labeling quizzes as U.S. Football to avoid confusion with European Football?

As a matter of fact, I have asked for that very specification.

There are Sploofus players from all across the globe, and I think it's only fair to try to keep the bias at a minimum. Because the site is based in the United States, it's hard to imagine that the site will be totally free from America-centric quizzes and puzzles. But when it's feasible, why not try to keep the quizzes friendly to all?

I live in Ireland and spent a lot of tiem in England. I do occasionally choose to take quizzes that are obviously american such as ' how to speak southern' but I get really annoyed if I get into a quiz on a subject I like only to find out all the questions are American.
Think how you would feel if the reverse happened - say a quiz quiz called 'Presidents' and you get to question one to find it is presidents of Ireland or some even nore obscure place.
I don't think it takes much to just add in to the into ' US based ' or whatever it is.
