About: Traci describes her life like this: I’m 28, I live with my boyfriend and my dog, and I love my small little family. She’s an animal person, with a special love for dogs. Outside of work she’s goofy and sarcastic, but at work she’s the picture of professionalism.
Interests: Traci likes to sit and watch TV for hours on end…or go for a hike. She likes a mix of the indoor and outdoor, and made it her goal this year to do more hiking. She also likes playing board games with friends.
Strange Fact: After college Traci traveled to Guatemala where she lived and volunteered in an animal shelter for a month. In her words, she is “weirdly obsessed with weird dogs.” She volunteers at a Seattle animal shelter, and her favorite dogs are the neurotic, nervous dogs.
Here at Sporcle: Traci spends her time in numerous spreadsheets, handling financial reports and administrative tasks. As she puts it “a lot of things come through me.”
Favorite thing about working at Sporcle: Traci likes that everyone works really hard, while maintaining their sense of humor. She adds “I laugh at something at least once a day.” Beyond the mix of hard work and fun, she loves getting to wear jeans to work everyday.

It’s been waaaaaay too long since we’ve had a quiz contest. So we thought, let’s change that! This contest is different from those in the past, because it’s an OctoQuiz Contest.
What’s OctoQuiz? It’s a new site we’re developing, that features 8-question quizzes. (You can read more about it in this blog post.) The Sporcle Staff have been having an OctoQuizmaking contest for the whole month of March. And we’re inviting you to join us for the final week.
1. Go to the Create section, and click the ‘Create an Octoquiz’ button. (Or go directly to OctoQuiz here.)
4. Experiment with the quiz format and add some images. When it’s ready to go, click the green ‘Publish Quiz’ button.
5. Come back to this blogpost and post your quiz in the comments.
Multiple entries are accepted, and you have until the end of March to submit them.
We’ll review all the quizzes, and the winning one will be promoted on the Sporcle homepage and the OctoQuiz Facebook page. Even if your quiz doesn’t win, there’s a good chance it will be published on OctoQuiz in the coming days and months.
And the most fun part is sharing these quizzes with family and friends. Share your quiz on Facebook or tweet it at someone you think will really enjoy it.

About: Eric describes himself as a goofy guy who likes to laugh. He likes spending time with his kids and their new family dog. Other places he’s lived include Singapore and southern California. He’s known around the office as the resident Star Trek fan and the voice of Slackbot.
Interests: Eric has a wide variety of hobbies and interests. He spends a lot of time with old computer hardware, collecting retro games to play and share with his kids. He has a 1986 VW Wesfalia Camper van which he’s steadily restoring to pristine condition. And he keeps up on trends in the music industry, with electronic music being his current genre of choice.
For a long time, Eric’s go-to Sporcle quiz was 3 Letter Body Parts. As he tells it, it’s a quiz that covers basic knowledge, but if you’ve been away from it for a few months, it can be a challenge to remember every last answer.
Strange Fact: Most people wouldn’t know that Eric used to be in the military.
Here at Sporcle: Eric is the guy we go to for all design-related questions (he also has good restaurant recommendations.) Eric loves designing for mobile–one of his first projects at Sporcle involved redesigning the main Sporcle mobile app. On the web, some of his favorite pages to design are the games pages. Eric has an exceptional eye for detail, and he works to make our products appear polished and eye-catching.
Favorite thing about working at Sporcle: Eric likes Sporcle for the “fantastic” team vibe. As he puts it, “Egos are left at the door…everyone is focused on producing a great product.” Though there’s a lot of work to be done, he says, there’s an attitude that we’re here to have fun. And it’s pretty awesome to get paid for that.
