I have been making 80's quizzes for a while now and I put the description in the 'details' part of the quiz. I will give you the singer, you tell me what song they sang.
I had a quiz rejected because I should have put more than a name in the box.
eg. Elton John (5 songs..which one is his)
I should have written 'Which song did Elton John sing?'
Maybe I haven't had my daily dose of caffiene and happy pills...but c'mon now! I have had a least a handful of quizzes accepted and even quoted on 'nice ones' (I think they were talking quizzes and not ta-tas) but I have to wonder about the rules too...

If you notice on 'create a quiz' there are different sections:

1) Name (2) Details (3) Image (4) Questions (5) Status Results

#4 mentions that these are questions, not fill in the blank, but questions. Their site, their rules. If we want to play, we have to play by their rules.

I actually think a question looks nicer. Spend the extra time, you'll get rated higher from me.

I think alot of it is the FITB quizzes were flooding the quiz queues and people were upset that their quizzes were getting shuffled out of sight too fast by the torrent of FITB's.

Please be patient, as a new "Quiz Authoring Guide" will be posted very soon which offers an exhaustive reference to the quiz eligibility rules, guidelines, best practices - including lots of examples.

In the mean time, our editors are approving the quizzes that they can. Ultimately, this guide will serve as a great reference and "single source of truth" for all quiz authors and editors alike.

Thank you!

These are NOT fill in the blank quizzes.
If you have taken these quizzes you will see that it takes more than 5 minutes to put it together.
Why am I even wasting my typing skills responding....

I wasn't talking about yours, but so many from many others.
