Again I am not sure where the appropriate place to post things might be. This is not meant to be offensive in any way. Just would like a clarification of when a quiz author should cite sources. Perhaps some people can recall lists, dates, names, etc. in their heads-I cannot. If one is a regular viewer of a TV show or watched a movie or read a book, I can understand a source not being given. Would just like to be clear on policy-thanks.

There is virtually no wrong time to cite your source(s). If your information is from a single source, be it wikipedia, a site dedicated to the subject, the Old Farmers Almanac or another single source, you should definitely cite your source. If your quiz is heavily from two or three sources, citing is a good idea. I appreciate citings. They help verify things such as spellings of names, places, etc. Also, if a quiz is interesting, it can lead me to some addition fun checking out more on the subject.
