    I refuse to believe that Hotel California is not the most guessed song for Eagles, or Don't Speak for No Doubt.

    So, I rejected Freddie Mercury for the planet question, since he wasn't a group. But then I come to the all-male group question, and do I even think of Queen? N-o-o-o, that's what a person with half a brain would have done!

    August 2014 marks the 5th anniversary of the first time I had a Sporcle quiz published under my own name. This one:
    http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/us_songsofyear

    I actually contributed a few before the month before, but user accounts didn’t exist at the time. Neither did the “Create” pages. I had to send in my quiz in spreadsheet format via e-mail! Here it is:
    http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/4wordmoviereviews

    I think that may have been the first Sporcle quiz written for purely humorous purposes. It wasn’t a subject you could study or even research, and getting answers wrong meant you still got a chuckle out of the revealed answer.

    In those early days of few contributors, I would often get 2 or three front-page quizzes a week. Now that’s down to (maybe) one per month. Hopefully, that’s not entirely due to my lessening skills but more due to the staggering number of good quiz makers out there.

    I’ve tried to expand the parameters of what can go into a quiz, and embrace the new puzzle formats as they become available. I swing for the fences, but that also means I get more strikeouts than home runs. I’m okay with that.

    This is not a retirement notice. I intend to keep creating quizzes as long as I have ideas, and will continue to hope that one of them, someday, someday, will prove more popular than Beatles vs Rebecca Black.

    Who knows? I have high hopes that this one will get to the front page someday and is original enough to go viral:
