25 Quizzes a Month for All!

the-alphabet-movie-meme-L-XxZDUEWe have some great news for quiz contributors today, we’ve raised the limit for all quiz creators from 11 quizzes per month to 25.

This is the first time we’ve raised the contribution limit in over 3 years, and we’re really excited to see what kind of quizzes are released. In addition, we’re not allowing all users the ability to contribute 100 private quizzes per month, so if you enjoy making lots of quizzes for studying or friends, the world is your oyster.

We’ve also made a slight tweak to the quizmaster formula, so private quizzes will no longer count towards the score. It shouldn’t have much of an effect on most scores, but if you see your score drop slightly, that’s the reason.

3. From: Songs That Get Their Facts Wrong

AzazelloWhat about “I can’t get no satisfaction”? I call BS. That dude got so much satisfaction.

1. From: Any Food but Vegan

Honest_John: I considered becoming a vegan, but could not bear the thought of giving up emu or dogfood.


2. From: Blitz: Does It Contain ‘P’?

performaxI’m glad ‘urinal’ wasn’t one of the choices. Not sure what the correct answer would be.


3. From: Countries Whose Capitals Contain ‘City’

4. From: Animals Faster than Usain Bolt

ChileNoseJamA cat might be ABLE to run faster than Bolt, but most of the time it wouldn’t bother. Unless you put some food at the end of the track, it would still be sitting by the starting block licking itself when Bolt had finished.


5. From: 8-Letter Country Per Letter

Honest_JohnNever realised how many seven and nine letter countries there are until I did this quiz.

Welcome to ‘Back to Sporcle’ Week 2014

sweater_weather_-9526It’s the first day of our 4th annual Back to Sporcle week. It’s a special time where we discuss our love of sweaters, look forward to fall, and talk about what Sporcle’s been up to over the last few months

Today we’re going to focus on some of the sweet new features we’ve released into the wild recently. Everything from new quiz types, to live theme nights, we’ve pretty much done it all.

Here’s some of the good stuff we’ve been working on:

Trivia Bingo

bingo-2

The first real-time trivia game on Sporcle itself. Trivia Bingo uses our vast repository of Sporcle Live questions and lets you play them against your friends (and enemies online). It just takes a lot of trivia knowledge (and a little) luck to crown yourself a Trivia Bingo champion.

 


Live Theme Nights

theme2

We’ve taken our usual Sporcle Live theme nights and expanded them as far as they can go. Every month we have new rounds on topics like Star Trek, The Simpsons and Arrested Development, so check back often.

 
 


Quiz Lab

quiz-lab

We’ve embiggened the noble soul of our Discover section and turned into Quiz Lab. Quiz Lab is the place to release new quizzes and get them played by other users. It’s the perfect place to test out your new ideas, and show other Sporclers your quizmaking chops. Unfortunately, we ran out of free labcoats, so you might have to make your own.

Tomorrow we’ll be back talking about our favorite quizzes of the summer, so stay tuned.
