What's your LOWEST-scoring quiz? Any single-digit veterans out there?

I lament that my quiz on animutation on had a dozen takers....

"Face or Space: Which Social Network to Choose!" has had only 9 takers. It was launched only four days ago, but we all know that quizzes get the most action right after being posted. So come on, one of you Sploofusers! Put me in the double digits!

My "A Ride Down US 2" has earned a paltry 2899 points from its 25 takers (most of whom took it before the author point system changed). Pity too, it might have helped you all with one of the puzzles in the recent "TWO" WP!

9 takers on my 'stardust' quiz. I'd have expected more sploofusers to see the movie?

I did a series of "Know Yer Politicians - (A name)" quizzes. Several languish in single and near-single digit land. Bill Frist, Dennis Hastert and Newt Gingrich hover as the lowest of the low.

My History of Ceremonial Dress quiz generated the lowest points: 2,812 with 22 takers (and it's GOOD). My Roller Derby quiz has the lowest number of takers at 10 (and it's good too!), but gave me more points because it's harder.

Cool! Roller Derby! Are Ralphie Valladares and Ronnie "Psycho" Rains in there?

So far I'm winning in the "Loser" category. "Zeedee's Guam Quiz, Part 2" had only five takers for 1,995 points. Anyone have a quiz with fewer than 5 takers?

Eleven takers on a really good quiz, rated 8.14 without an EA. Wow ... this is teaching me something. Another good question, Rev.

These are my lowest
James Cameron - This is MY Film [31] LIVE 7.87 2 154 3,233
Official Texas State Symbols [24] LIVE 7.71 5 385 7,068
Kaelin's Eugene the Jeep Quiz [19] LIVE 8.18 6 462 7,150

Random Texas Trivia [24] LIVE 7.63 4 308 8,060

I've had people make really nice comments on both of the Texas quizzes - some asked to write about their state - which I Plan to do someday - but I guess it doesn't get much attention - it was fun to write though!

"Gallop To The Galapagos" had only 17 takers........and I thought it would be an exciting place! I know Alice thought so!!

The points system was restructured some time back, so that one of my quizzes ("Caution! X-Rated") which had 661 takers, woulda had way more points had it been on THIS side of the restructuring!

I can understand why my 2005 quiz titled "Wellington Mara-US NFL Owner" got only 11 takers, but I really expected my "Tom Lehrer's "Fight Fiercely, Harvard" to get more than 12.

My quiz Murder in the First-the Movie had 15 and Just Cause-the Movie had 16-on that one told folks in the quiz description that they would not score well if they had not seen the movie. Thought more people would have seen a great movie like Murder in the First-alas-think I need to try some "zippy" titles or perhaps watch newer movies-Linda

I know there are so many addicts to the boob tube and all they want are easy quizzes about TV and pop music. Most of them do their sploofusing in spam time or if they can't find any reruns of movies in the late hours, I bet. I myself avoid subjects I know nothing about, like the topography of Borneo or the ranches of Texas rated by head of cattle, just for some farfetched obscure topics. But I will try some subjects that pique my curiosity. By the way, I have had a perfect score of absolute zero before.

Maurlin....I'm off to find "Fight Fiercely Harvard" right now!

Is there a "poisoning Pigeons in the Park" in the works?

No - but only just! My two lowest scoring puzzles both had 10 takers ...!

I haven't written very many, but "Floober Floom Flizz! It's a Dr. Seuss Quiz!" and "The Bronte Family: Their Lives and Works" are tied at 38 takers.

Yes! I have had a single digit quiz:

Camp Fire Girls (9)

But among the losers that surprised me were quizzes on my two favorite TV shows:

The Prisoner (12)
The Avengers (18)

And Justin's movie didn't rate too highly either:

The Sploofus Video Quiz - Were You Watching? (29)

Do not believe there is anything lowlife or wrong with quizzes about pop music-my worst category- TV, or things related to movies. Do object when the title of the quiz or the description is deceptive-once I begin I keep on going. One of these days the mean side of me will come out and I will give a low rating-has not happened yet. Think it also rather curious but with some exceptions have received nary a reply from the people I send notes to regarding their quizzes. I do that most of the time. The people who have been here a spell always reply and some others but many do not. Is it because they are not Gold and cannot or is it because they don't want to bother? Linda

I'm the same as you - avoid most of the TV/Movie/(?)Music(?)questions
and sometimes will take a quiz I know nothing about, just because it sounds
interesting....AND I TOO have had more than my share of 0% results !!!!

I take quizzes written by people I like....people whose quizzes I like....
subjects I like....interesting obscure subjects....and sometimes easy
quizzes because I'm too tired to think....and too stupid to go to bed!!!!

Like tonight !!!!

Should have said in my last post that the title of the quiz can be somewhat deceiving as that is what gets folks to look at them the "Catchiness". However, what the quiz is actually about should be THOROUGHLY explained in the description-smart folks read those-Linda (To each his own on the types of quizzes one takes)

Lowest is 2,508 "Deborah Kerr fill in the blank". Obviously written a long time ago.

My quiz with the fewest points also happens to be my quiz with the highest average rating (8.69) and an Editor's Award winner: "Firesign Theatre--The First Four Albums." It's only had 19 takers for a total of 8658 points. I do have one other quiz with only 19 takers ("Tallactor's Mystery of Edwin Drood Quiz"), but it has a higher difficulty rating, so it's gotten more points.
