My first submitted quiz. All feedback welcome :).

This is an interesting idea for a quiz, so good job on your first quiz. However, there is one thing to look into. I'm not sure what happened but I was not penalized for wrong guessing. I was able to get 100% even though I made multiple mistakes.
Feb 11th, 2013 at 03:39 GMT
Ah, yes, I didn't know the etiquette for that so made it totally lenient. I'll fix it!

Cool idea. Dimebag Darrell was buried with Eddie Van Halen's guitar from the pictures of Van Halen II.

Thanks Phil, and wikipedia confirms it - ADDED!! Cheers :)

Nice job for your first contributed quiz. The key to a quiz like this is maximizing the number of clues that can be "deduced"... are there any more "good ones" you can find to add to the quiz? You want to minimize the ones that it is unlikely that most players have heard of (such as for Pringles and Doritos). - napb (History editor)

A novel subject for a quiz, with a lot of answers you have no way of figuring out.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 05:04 GMT
I enjoyed this in spite of not doing well. And I managed to resist clicking King Tut and Doritos, as much as I wanted to try it.

Thanks for the feedback guys, you're spot on about the clues and deduction and figuring out...it is a little unfair isn't it? I can learn from this for future quizzes! :) I'll also do some more research and see if I can put some more good entries in and remove the weak ones. I kinda knew that the Doritos and Pringles were unfair but I love the idea of them and the humour of matching them completely anachronistically, a la prouvaire's comment!

I bet you'll find some good alternatives (and some new ones) just by doing what I call "synonymous searches" on-line, using quotation marks.
For example: "was buried with his", "was buried with her", "also put in the casket", "in the casket next to him", "people buried with", and so on. Good luck. I think that would improve an already-fine-quiz. - napb

I noticed this was a curator pick in a subcategory I hadn't seen before. Who is the
Curator of Death
? Is it you, napb? In any case, I think that's got to be the most badass job title on this site.
Feb 13th, 2013 at 23:08 GMT
@Q_Pheevr: No, there is no current curator, so I'll be scything, er, making picks, in some of the History subcategories interimly.
Hmmmmm.... speaking of History subcategory curator vacancies... you'd make an excellent curator, Q. Have you ever thought about being one? There are 5 vacancies currently.
Feb 19th, 2013 at 19:18 GMT
Your advice was excellent napb - I got another one from as you call it "synonymous searches" and cut out Mr Pringles. I couldn't bring myself to do the same for the Doritos chap after what prouvaire said, but I have switched a few objects and put in more hints to make the answers easier to deduce, so hopefully that Doritos match will be a reasonable process of elimination for the keenies.

I saw Tut and was sorta hoping his answer would be the obvious "Tons of gold, mummified animals and pots full of his own internal organs".
Feb 26th, 2013 at 02:04 GMT
Hahaha! I certainly could have chosen something more entertaining than "Large quantity of seeds" but I was rather constrained by two pressures: 1.) That in general the items are longer than the names which makes the layout awkwardly asymmetric, so I wanted minimise items lengths as much as I could, and 2.) I needed items that were unique but not too obvious. I think "mummified animals" might have given that one away a little too quickly... ;) "Pots full of his own internal organs" is hilarious though.
Feb 26th, 2013 at 03:09 GMT
No, I'm pretty sure King Tut was buried with Doritos.
Feb 26th, 2013 at 06:33 GMT
So I learned that King Tut was "buried with a donkey" for nothing?
