I have written 2 quizzes, One concerning the Andes survivors, and the other about The "Busby Babes" Munich air crash.
I have put them both under Planes and Boats.
The Andes quiz has had a nominal amount of takers, but the Munich one has had none. Now I do understand that they might not be everyone's cup of tea, and not everyone (Especially the USA) will know nothing about British football .
These are the first two quizzes that I have actually done a lot of research on instead of my usual lyrics quizzes and such like, and am finding it a bit disheartening.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, and I apologise if it seems like I am plugging them... that's not my intention!

I hate when I can't decide where to put a quiz. I think general is a good place. The only other places I could see would be Trivia Expert or maybe History. Hang tight I'm sure you'll get more takers

Hey Debbie - I find that the quizzes that I write that I feel are the most intelligent and that took me the most time, are taken by the fewest number of people. If you think they are really tough, move them to Trivia Expert - that way they will probably stay visible longer.

I find that, though I know almost nothing about movies, television, or songs, every once in a while I have to write something with the word television in the title just so I feel good about the number of people who take one of my quizzes.

Personally I think it is more important to me to be proud of a quiz that I write than for it to be popular. If you know you did a great job, that should be all that should matter.

Saying that....who can I pay off to take one of my quizzes...??? LOL

Hi Everyone,
Thanks for your messages,
I have decided to move them to the "Expert" section, as the highest taker's average is roughly 50%. I will just have to see how they go..
Isn't it awful to try and think of quizzes that you think other people may be interested in, apart from the usual (mine included) television and music?
Thanks again

I totally agree with BB here . I have found the quizzes I have just thrown together have done far better than the ones that I have spent a lot of time on and constructing a begning middle and end.
I am still very proud of my 'Life of Elizabeth Fry' though it only had 11 takers. It gores from birth to death and contains a lot of information about a woman whose actons improved the lives of many.

I knoe it was a typo, but I find the insertion of "gores" instead of "goes" kinda ironic

I agree with those folks who said that the quizzes that take them the most time to put together are often not the most popular. My simple list quizzes on movie lines and catch phrases have been much more popular. Think I as well as everyone else needs to understand that song lyrics, songs, movies and roles are the ones that usually are successful. entertainment is "IN" it seems-perhaps the way it is supposed to be. Know how you feel about being somewhat dishearted by unpopularity of quizzes that you have labored over and are not received well-just the way it is. If you or your subject matter is not US oriented you have it even harder-for a while that is-hang in there.
