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?
I was reading the comments on a Buzzfeed quiz and someone mentioned Sporcle. I did a quick search, started playing quizzes, and I was instantly hooked. I made it my mission to learn all the countries of the world, after that I expanded to other categories and I’ve been playing ever since.
Why did you decide to be a curator for your subcategory?
How I Met Your Mother is my favorite show. I knew that I wanted to be a curator for it as soon as I found out about curating. Once I saw that the subcategory was open, I applied. I was lucky enough to be chosen as the curator!
What’s your favorite trivia fact having to do with your subcategory?
The real-life spouses of many of the characters have made cameos in the show. Scooter and Barney are married, Sandy River is Lily’s husband, and Robin married Gary Blauman.
What are some of your favorite published quizzes from your subcategory?
I love HIMYM: I Only Have One Rule…. The decoy answers all sound like possible rules Barney would have made up.
What are some of your favorite contributed quizzes from your subcategory?
Vintage Instructional Film or HIMYM Episode? is one of my favorites.
How can Sporclers in your subcategory best contact you?
Through Sporcle’s messaging service. Please do contact me! My subcategory doesn’t see a lot of traffic now that show is ended, so I’m always looking for great quizzes.
Haiku or favorite Dad Joke (or both):
What do you call a fish with no eyes? Fshhhhh.
Pearl does a variety of media-related tasks at Sporcle, including blog writing, video production, and social media maintenance. She does research on penguins, enjoys snail mucus in her skincare, and once turned herself Sporcle Orange from eating too many carrots.
