BORING QUIZZES

What opinions are there about a raft of boring quizzes which have recently started flooding onto the front page of quizzes. They began with the 100 songs of 1970. There's 10 quizzes a year, 100 quizzes for the 70s. Currently they are up to 1975. I guess the list he's working from goes to 2000. That will mean 400 quizzes that simply ask who sang a song.

I know that music quizzes are popular on Sploofus and there are quizzes that are interesting and varied. A couple of authors have said to me that they can't be bothered spending a long time on a really interesting quiz, and then have it blasted off the front page in a matter of hours. This means also that for quiz takers, there is no variety on the front page.

As authors or takers, what do other people think?

I complained to the editors about one author dominating the New Quizzes list to no avail. I don't know if that's even in their power, but it seems to me there should be a limit to how many quizzes by one author can be launched at one time. I haven't written any quizzes in a while, and that's part of the reason. I don't want to show up for 5 minutes and then get pushed off by 20 new ones from the same author.

I just don't take them if I think they sound boring - maybe they won't get many takers and will give up before they're done with the series.

It's good when I can time my quiz to the end of the editor's work time, and then it stays near the top for 6 or 7 hours instead of 20 minutes.

Just have to keep plugging on.

He hasn't put one up for 12 hours. Maybe he died or got bored. If he got bored, that makes all of us.

But I'm not holding my breath.

Well I know at times I've put up five or six quizzes in a day at times, but at least I try to vary them.
At the moment I've lost interest in writing quizzes as they pass by too quickly and I feel I've put in all that work for nothing.

Well I might be Black Balled for this one. When a fellow pays for a platinum membership he can do what he wants whether you like it or not. I post a lot of , I'm sure, uninteresting quizzes to a lot of you and so do you "Scrabq". Lay off!!! If he wants to post his quizzes let him do so. That is what Sploofus is all about. Hey "Smoke" I will take your "spend money like it's going out of style" idiot in your picture and throw that beer back in his face. I call that "FREEDOM OF SPEECH".

I enjoy those "boring" or "drive-by" quizzes! Sometimes I just want a quick trip down memory lane or a little break that's not too taxing and those '70s tunes are just the ticket

I guess one person's "boring" is another person's welcome diversion

Maybe someone could write a Friends or Who Sung Quiz just to break things up. I am working on a Moth quiz, so hang on a bit longer.

My thought, is: if they're boring, don't take them. If there are too many, don't take them. Geeze...people can complain about anything. Turn the channel if you don't like the show, ya know? There are thousands of quizzes on here. Some were pretty easy for me, but I like the music quizzes and I like them to be easy. People like to remember the songs and the recollections that they have of them. Most people do, too. Where was I when I first heard this song, that was "our" song, etc. If they have to try too hard on their quizzes, they aren't fun for them. Its not rocket science, its just fun. Their are many people that commended me on my quizzes heres an example: "I really like and have fun taking your 100 songs of the 70's music quizzes. I was reading something in the forums about them. I haven't paid sploofus so I can't post a message there, so I wanted to let you know I hope you keep on writing these type of music quizzes. Keep up the good work!"

Far as I know, there's no rule that you have to take so many quizzes to write one, but if you enjoy easy music quizzes, you can't go wrong with Mitchy's, she's got a slew of them. She's a lot younger than I am, so I don't do so hot on them, but she's the queen of the music quiz biz around here.

Frank, if the quiz writers are complaining, that's one thing. But if the quiz takers start complaining, then you better listen.

Boring?

Variety is the spice of life. But, what may be someone's junk could be some one else's treasure.

Either he's got a bloody big ear or no ear at all. He has not listened to a word anyone has said. Far out man, write three quizzes a day and leave the rest for someone else.
