Yay.  We made it.  The world didn't end. And we have...




The Eleventh Quiz-Making Contest!

How it Works:
  • For the contest, there will be a theme. All entries must pertain to that theme in any way.
  • To enter your quiz, just post it on this thread.
  • October 5 will be the last day for entering. Voting will then start at midnight EST, and take place for 3 more days.
  • The winning quiz will (if all goes well) get published on Sporcle.

How to Vote:

Email me (sporcl...@gmail.com) with your vote. Your email should look something like this:

1. [Quiz 1] (your favorite entry)
2. [Quiz 2] (second favorite entry)
3. [Quiz 3] (third)

1st place is worth 3 points, 2nd is worth 2, and 3rd is 1. Please only tell me your top three 
I will then tally up the votes and post our winner here.
 

Other Rules:
  • You may only enter one quiz.
  • You may vote if you've entered, but please don't vote for your own quiz.
  • When voting, make sure to tell me your Sporcle username.
  • Entries must be created after the contest has started.
The theme is....

Fire.

I have no idea how this will go.  But I can trust y'all to make some great quizzes!


Your Contest Winners thus far:

Okay, I have spent my afternoon trying to figure out how to use some interesting facts I found that are relevant to the topic. Here's the result: Fire and Swords.

Any feedback is welcome.
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! iglew 9/24/13 9:00 PM
Just in case anyone's thinking of the Billy Joel song "We didn't start the fire", that's been done at least 35 times.
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! Scott 9/24/13 11:04 PM
Here is my entry!  As always, open to suggestions and feedback!

Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! Tom007 9/25/13 12:30 AM
Here's my entry: Fire in Movies (Slideshow)

Feedback is always appreciated.
RE: The 11th Quiz Contest! Rich Milligan 9/25/13 12:30 AM

I’ll have to get my thinking cap on for a suitable entry into this – are you sure “We didn’t start the fire” hasn’t been done before??? J

 

RedBengalTiger – Your quiz Fire and Swords – My comments would be, who the heck are these people!? And because it’s a 50/50 quiz if you get one wrong you can obviously make a correct guess next time around. I just wonder if the man on the street would know any of these answers off the top of their heads?

 

Scott – Your quiz People on Fire – Great URL choice J - Enjoyed this one although as a Brit I’ve no idea about the US (I presume) version of Celebrity Apprentice. Can’t believe though when I got down to guessing the last few answers I kept multi-clicking the same thing. Yep, if Meat Loaf isn’t a “Grace under Fire” actor once, he’s still not going to be one twice! DOH!

 

Cheers

BGC

Here’s my effort – Fire Fire by Steam Powered Giraffe

 

Two reasons for doing this, firstly I love a lyrics quiz myself and secondly I won’t rest until everyone has heard of the superb Steam Powered Giraffe!

 

It probably won’t get many plays, but I know I’ve done by bit for art!! J

 

Cheers

BGC: Heck, I don't know who these people are. It's definitely a niche quiz. I actually was looking up the information a while ago, as I have an interest in both activities (did anyone check out the sword-swallower link? Those records are crazy!) and it seemed to fit the contest description. Not intended to be an amazing quiz, just sharing interesting info. 
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! Droxnar 9/26/13 8:39 AM
Hello!
 
I'm a long time Sporcle player, but fairly new quizmaker, and this is my first contest entry (not to mention my first quiz of this type). I accept any and all feedback, comments or critisism.
 
Without further ado, here is my quiz:  http://www.sporcle.com/games/Droxnar/goodness-gracious
 
My Sporcle username is Droxnar.  Friend me if you will. Challenge me if you want.  I have no Sporcle friends and am very lonely. :*(  Though with literally thousands of quizzes still needed to get those badges, who has time for friends?
 
Thanks for your time, and Sporcle on, dudes!
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! adal 9/26/13 10:00 AM
 
Hi,
 
I've seen the Sporcle University link on the Create page so many times without ever clicking it, but today I decided to check it out. 
 
To mark the occasion I made a contest entry: http://www.sporcle.com/games/adal/fireworks-color-sources
 
:)

Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! Funnyfavorer101 9/26/13 4:38 PM
Droxnar: Is your username Droxnar or droxnar711?

Here is my official entry:


It inspired me to make another fire nerdy chemistry quiz that 10 people ever will take too.
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! Droxnar 9/26/13 4:54 PM
Red/Funny: It's Droxnar. The other one was created by mistake and really should be locked up in an attic somewhere so no one can ever see it again. ;)
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! Funnyfavorer101 9/26/13 4:57 PM
Okay. It was just a little confusing because here, your email shows as droxnar711, and then there was just plain Droxnar. :)

I know this probably counts as a niche quiz but figured I'd throw it out there anyway.

Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! Droxnar 10/2/13 9:10 AM
I'm loving all these, so far. :D
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! iglew 10/2/13 8:27 PM
This was directly inspired by Pope St Cyril's quiz, another bit of verse in the same vein as his:  'I Sit Beside the Fire and Think'
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! amazingjosh 10/4/13 8:31 PM
I would just like to remind everyone that you have 24 hours remaining to enter.

Your entries...


Wow!  What a turnout.

20 entries! I think that's the most ever.

Thanks everyone for participating.

Reiterating, 1 More Day.

Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! geshmonkey 10/5/13 12:31 AM
Just a heads up, the 'Rings of fire' doesn't actually have any ellipses(...) I just thought it would be more ominous for the entry line, but oh well, life goes on - 
and yeah, there are a lot of entries!
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! amazingjosh 10/5/13 8:40 PM
While there's 20 more minutes left, I am now officially opening voting. I doubt anyone else is entering. 

You know the format for voting (it's in the first post of this thread). And please provide your username when voting to prevent double votes. 

While you can vote for yourself, good gamesmanship is encouraged. 

Voting will happen for 3 days. Tuesday at 11:59:59 EST is the end of voting. My email is sporcl...@gmail.com

I would like to discourage CP's and EP's until Wednesday. 

Your final list of entries...





Thanks a ton!

Josh
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! Tom007 10/6/13 10:34 PM
Shortly after making my actual entry, I came up with the idea for this game. It's obviously ineligible because the contest is closed, but I thought it was relevant enough to post here. Hopefully some Arrested Development fans will enjoy it:
Tobias Fünke's Fire Sale Audition
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! amazingjosh 10/9/13 7:57 AM
Thank you everyone for playing. 

And we have a winner.

In 3rd Place, we have Classical Elements in the Bible. Congratulations Purple_Parrot!  PP received 9 votes, coming from 5 different ballots.

In 2nd Place, there is Rings of Fire by geshmonkey.  Geshmonkey got 10 votes from 4 ballots.

And the winner. 






I am happy to announce Droxnar as this contest's winner!  Droxnar made Great Sporcle Category Grab Bag of FIRE! which won in a landslide with 16 votes.  

Congratulations to everyone that entered.  If you entered, you will receive an email with your point total.

Go off and CP or EP everyone, now.  
Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! druhutch 10/9/13 1:48 PM
Congrats to Droxnar! Well deserved. Awesome epic quiz. And congrats as well to all the entries--this one was particularly hard to pick my favorite three. Great work.


Re: The 11th Quiz Contest! DesertSpartan 10/9/13 4:14 PM
I concur, It was very hard for me to pick and I thought nearly all were witty and imaginitive.  Congratulations Droxnar! and all that entered.
