Editors Note: Sporcle curator hscer posted the following post on his personal blog recently, and we liked it so much we asked if we could post it on the official blog. We appreciate hscer allowing us to to share his advice with all of you.
With over 180,000 unpublished contributed games, even if the Game Creation feature were shut down today, at the current rate of 57 publications a week (9 each weekday and 6 each Saturday and Sunday) it would take 3,158 weeks–that’s 61 years–for Sporcle to publish every game. Given these numbers, it’s easy to get discouraged if you have a hard time getting your quiz published. I know there are a lot of folks out there in that situation, as I have seen it in many a comment on many a quiz. There are plenty of things you can do besides lash out in a comment to increase your publication odds. I’ve layed out some helpful hints after the jump.
