When it comes to Sporcle, curators truly do know best. In this blog series, some of the great curators of Sporcle share their expert opinions on curating, top-notch quizzes, up-and-coming Sporclers, and a wee bit of trivia.
How did you first get involved with Sporcle?
In 2009, my brother’s friend had found some NHL quizzes when surfing on the Internet. Then my brother told me about this great trivia site I might like, and I got addicted so badly. At first I only played quizzes, and started making them myself in 2013. Sporcle community has given so much to me, and my brother always likes to remind me that introducing Sporcle to me is like the best Christmas/Birthday present he has ever given me.
Why did you decide to be a curator for your subcategory?
Back then, there wasn’t an art subcategory in Sporcle and I suggested it in old Sporcle University forum, Sporcle established this subcategory and I became the curator – one great example how Sporcle is a low threshold community, users have the ability to develop the site together with Admins. And personally, I love art: classic art, paintings, installations, graffiti, re-cycling art, modern art, cultural art.
What’s your favorite trivia fact having to do with your subcategory?
Did you know that, from 1912-1948, the Olympic Games awarded medals for artwork inspired by sport?
What are some of your favorite published quizzes from your subcategory?
My Favorite quizzes are Survivor‘s Works of Art: Odd One Out, bam_thwok‘s Toddler Art or Modern Art?, and needapausebutton‘s Aesop’s Fables Illustrated. Those three, very different kind of quizzes are a great example of how versatile the subcategory Art is!
