Welcome to BACK TO SPORCLE! It’s been an amazing summer, but we have to admit that we’re pretty excited for fall, too.

In the midst of summertime fun, you may have forgotten about Sporcle. We don’t blame you–it’s hard to compete with warm summer nights, water sports, and family vacations. For many of you, Sporcle is part of your fall-winter-spring life. Now that you’re back to your regular routine, we want take an entire week to catch you up on all the Sporcle happenings from over the summer.

So…to celebrate the return of sweater weather, we’re officially inviting you to BACK TO SPORCLE WEEK!

Getting the week off to a good start, we have a QUIZ CONTEST! Check out the details below.

Back to Sporcle Quiz Contest

How do I get a quiz published? We get this question a lot, and the truth is that there are a lot of factors that go into our choices of which quizzes to publish. But this time, we’re making it pretty straightforward. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Create an awesome quiz. (See Rules below)
  2. Add the ‘Back to Sporcle‘ tag to it.
  3. Sit back and watch the nominations roll in.
We’ll be asking users to nominate their favorite ‘Back to Sporcle‘ quiz contest quizzes all week long, and if your quiz receives the most nominations, it will be published on the Sporcle homepage on Friday.

Of course, even if your quiz doesn’t win, that doesn’t mean that it won’t ever get published. We’re always on the lookout for quality quizzes, and we’re hoping that this contest will generate your best work.

The rules: The theme is SCHOOL. The quiz must be new, you must contribute it and make sure it is public. Post a link  to your quiz in the comment section. Only one entry per person. We’ll announce the winner on Friday.

For information about how to create quizzes, check out our FAQ page.
You can also get ideas from the quiz contests that have been taking place on Sporcle University.
