IS SPLOOFUS BECOMING A TRIVIAL GAME RATHER THAN A GAME OF TRIVIA?

I direct this at no one individual. I am as guilty of creating a quiz from the "list thing" as anyone. I realize my limitations in areas out of my knowlege such as Religion, Technology, most Sports, etc. I have been playing this since 04. That does not make me good at it. Just seems that the new quizzes are not at all like the daily questions one gets nor the wordrounds or wordpuzzles. It seems if one is not in the "know" about current singing groups, song lyrics, sitcoms, or the like you might as well not play. I respect anyone who takes the time to research any of these things. Also, I will not score a quiz low because I do not do well. Just wopndering, am I alone out here in this? Just do NOT want this to become a trivial game rather than a game of trivia! Linda (my apologies if I offend).

Hey Linda - I sometimes think that there is no one here with the same interests as me...since so many new quizzes are about stuff I have no clue about. But then I remember that this is what makes Sploofus such a great place! There really is something here for everyone. Everybody has a different pool of trivial knowledge.

Don't be afraid to use the search engine on the Quizzes page to find older quizzes on topics you might like.

Often if I am watching an old movie, I'll check for a quiz on it, and find half a dozen! I can ace them all right then and there! Or I write my own

Hi Linda - I'm with you with the pop culture thing. I know nothing about current music, performers, etc. We go to maybe 3 movies a year - if I pick up one of those magazines at the check out counter I don't even know whom they are gossiping about. I think I've only watched 3 episodes of Friends, and we don't get HBO.

I never touch the music quizzes, the movie quizzes, the celebrity quizzes. I never touch the fill-in-the-blank quizzes, cause I don't know the names of the songs, the movies, the wives of the stars, whatever.

That said, I love it here! As far as answering quizzes go, there are always food quizzes, word play, science stuff, and general trivia that I find fun.

But there is more. There is really something for everyone here. I first went "gold" because of the WordPuzzles. I am totally addicted to the WordPuzzles. And, I find that I really enjoy writing the quizzes - OK, I write quizzes that very few people take (my Kohlrabi quiz is not exactly hitting the top of the charts) but I enjoy feeling that I have written something that is well constructed, and sometimes even interesting.

I think that Sploofus is a site that we can all enjoy many different ways. I have taken your quizzes, and enjoy them (I think we are in the same age bracket, so I can relate!); please don't stop writing them. I don't feel bad that I have no desire to access a lot of what is going on here, and you shouldn't either; who would have time for it anyway!!?!
