WHICH OF YOUR QUIZZES ARE YOU PROUDEST OF?
I was just thinking that the quizzes that I've written of which I am the proudest are not necessarily the ones that did particularly well - but they were the ones that I thought were on off-beat topics, or more interesting topics, and some of them were quite a while ago. We need a place to pat ourselves on the back, so how about we each list 3 quizzes that we have written that we really liked? Remember, you are only allowed to list 3!!! LOL
I'll start - I was very proud of:
"How Did Santa Get Down Your Chimney?"
"Crossword Puzzle History"
"Groundhog Day - Fact and Fiction"

Hmmmmmmm.....I loved writing "Yum or Yuk", and was giggling a lot as I put it together.
I liked "Red Herrings" for its diabolical cunning, and must admit to some evil snickers whilst writing that'un!
"Caution! X-Rated!" was designed to promote curiosity...and certainly did!
I have authored quite a few vocabulary quizzes, but my geography ones were a bit tough for most, so I reallocated 'em to "Trivia Experts Only".

My very first quiz, because it fulfilled the "Hey, I can probably do this" factor for me. It was "Pages and Potables: Know Your Literary Drunkards" (two things I know well). It didn't have scads of takers, but I got some really nice e-mails and it got the ball rolling.

Hard to figure out this one is. One really old quiz that many great remarks and comments it has generated and high score been given is "Driving for Teens". It is a virtually no-brainer. But many, many parents of teens have commended it after having their teen take it.

Like the very smart food server above me, it was my first quiz. It was called 'In The Kitchen' and it got over 250 hits. That was quite a feat back in September 04 when Sploofus had less than 1000 members.

WOW - it's going to take me some time to hunt these all down and take them!
I am quite proud of my 2nd quiz - Whose Line is it Anyway. I even managed to include a couple of questions on the BBC version!
Musicals: Where Do They Come From?
I just spent some time revamping this oldie of mine, and it has inspired me to write a 'Part 2'!
And a third favorite would have to be What the Heck is This Movie! A bizarre concept quiz, that my son helped me write, about a favorite crazy movie of ours, and it got an EA, and it hit the Top 10 list!

This thread should of course be called, "If you haven't taken this quiz yet, why the heck not?" And believe me, I'm going to check out some of the ones posted here that I missed.
I like a lot of mine. But, when all's said and done, today I'd say
1) "You Must Remember This ..." (just for the fun I had in making up wrong answers)
2) "Surely You're not Taking an 'Airplane' Quiz" (I'd like to think my questions correctly captured the spirit of the movie)
3) "Weird Al Fillintheblankovic" (a title that just had to be used)
Ask me tomorrow, and I'll have three others.

Right, my biggest ever flop as a quiz but one I thought deserved to do better was 'The Life Of Elizabeth Fry'
'Agatha Christie - Queen Of Mystery' Both this and the Elizabeth Fry one go from birth to death and I was hoping to do a lot more 'Women In History' quizzes but the poor take up of these has put me off thaat idea.
I suppose my top favourite, mainly because I lovethem so much, has to be 'Maine Coon Cats' - that did better and got an EA

1.I am very fond of the second quiz I wrote entitled First Lines of the Great Poets.
2.The most callenging quiz (and not my favourite one), was Solecisms and Barbarisms, as it incolved so much grammatical detail.
3.My favourite however, is Artology. Being an art lover, it was a joy to write, as I was able to express and convey my appreciation of the subject in this quiz. I was even more elated when it received an Editor's award.
It would be interesting to review our choices say in six months time, to see if these are still our favourite quizzes. (By I hope we will have written many more "favourites").

My "Female Tweenie Boppers" quiz got an EA, and I put a lot of time into that one...
Aside from that, i'd have to say my two most recent - "What's Red and Looks Like a Bucket?" and "You Think You're So Smart" - mostly because noone has gotten a 100% yet!!!
I do have fun creating quizzes though, but i'm partial to the musical theater ones that only a few people seem to be familiar with....!!

My first quiz is called Photography 101, and while it lacks creativity it's a solid quiz on a dying art-- film photography. These are also (I feel) strong quizzes:
"The 'Paul Is Dead' Hoax"
"Forensic Science: The Basics"
"Tennis Hall of Famers from the 70s and 80s"
"Can I Take Your Most Excellent Order, Sir?"

Lots of great quizzes and some I definitely have to check out. The quiz I had the most fun writing and researching was "Old News - The Search for the Oldest New Thing".
It took several days and led me to some strange places looking for the answer to my own question which is always great when that happens.

1. Latin for the New Millennium
2. Saints Who Am I? (It didn't get a lot of takers, but it took a while to research, condense information and write.)
3. Speech and Language Pathology 101 and 102 (By the way, May is Better Speech and Hearing Month so everyone should go take these!)

Only a few people took it, but I was proud of my "Life and Times of Indiana Jones" quiz... all of my "Pulp Fiction" stuff, only because it's one of my favorite films... I was also kinda proud of my "It Happened on My Birthday" quiz because it was cool finding out all that stuff happened on my birthday... had no idea about half of it..

All of my Bible quizzes
My 3 novel quizzes (To Kill a Mockingbird, The World According to Garp, and Pride & Prejudice)
I am not proud of all my fill in the blanks Movie quizzes-though, ironically, that's where I get the most points.

The quiz I spent the most time creating was "A Politically Incorrect Quiz". It was about the "Amos and Andy Show" that moved from radio to TV. I loved it, but most folks had never heard of it much less seen it-my age really showed. Actually most consider it the first TV sitcom. Sigh.... Linda

Even though not many people took this quiz, I was proud of Lizards Invade Chicago because I wrote it from on the job experience.
