This. Is. The Third Quiz-Making Contest.

As Always, Here's 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.
  • September 24 will be the last day for entering. Voting will then start at midnight EST, and take place for 2 more days.
  • The winning quiz will (if all goes well) get published on Sporcle.

How to Vote:

Email me (banjo...@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.
Voting will start at midnight EST tonight, and will be over in two days. 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.

That would be it for the rules. If you've got any questions, feel free to ask me.

Ah, yes - the theme! The contest's theme is:
MONEY

I think this'll be an interesting one. As always, have fun! :)

Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest needapausebutton 9/22/12 8:02 AM
What will be as much fun as this new theme, will be predicting some of the ideas that are developed as entries.

I've already written down five that I'd be willing to bet are made (and which contributors are probably already feverishly racing to complete).

For some of them, I can see multiple players developing the idea; and whoever doesn't enter it first might have to start again from scratch. Hopefully anyone who ends up in this predicament will be able to avoid smashing their keyboard when banging the fist on the table in exasperation.

I'm still confused, what is the theme and how can I submit my quiz? > --

The theme for this contest is money. To enter, just create your quiz on Sporcle and post a link to it on this thread.

Thanks citkeane: One down, four to go. Now, excuse me while I glue my keyboard back together... :)
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest citkeane 9/22/12 8:42 AM
It's good to know that I'm so predictable. Though to be honest it was the first good idea that came to my mind.
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest teddy109768 9/22/12 9:02 AM
I'm sure mine is one of those predictable quizzes, but I noticed that there are no quizzes within the Sporcle Universe that already uses my concept.  I was surprised since it is a very general quiz.  I know I probably won't win because of my lack of originality however it is worth a try because Sporcle can use a quiz like this!
Good Luck to everyone!

Thanks for this topic. It totally reminded me of a game I was going to make a few days ago but forgot about. Here it is:


I hope it hasn't been done before. It was a difficult thing to search for and I only found a non-clickable version.

Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest SproutCM 9/22/12 11:28 AM
Crikey! This is the first theme were I've made a ton of money based quizzes already, but now I don't know what ideas I have left.
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest SproutCM 9/22/12 12:11 PM
Ok. I had an idea.

Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest teddy109768 9/22/12 12:26 PM
I was just wondering if you are still only accepting the first four answers or will you narrow it down to the best 4?
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest BanjoZebra 9/22/12 12:36 PM
No, every entry that is submitted before September 25 will be accepted.
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest Flick 9/22/12 3:19 PM
Money Movies  for me
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest needapausebutton 9/22/12 4:42 PM
With utmost appreciation and gratitude to both Hejman & citkeane, I excitedly released my first-ever Sporcle "picture quiz".

I could not have pulled that off today without their generous assistance (made all the more "significant" owing to their OWN participation in these quiz-making contests), so to them I say "thanks for offering me your two-sense".

The following quiz is thus entered as my ante: Funny Money, or "Hey, that doesn't look like George!"
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest TheBestDRose 9/22/12 6:12 PM
Now before you read the title of the quiz, I want to make sure you know that it is Clickable and updated... so, enjoy:


If you played it, then thank you :). Because I still know that I'm not going to win this contest, although I can see that the quiz above me is serious competition.
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest TheBestDRose 9/22/12 6:24 PM
Excuse me; the quiz title is actually:

Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest Hejman 9/22/12 8:29 PM
And here's my entry:

Who's on Your Money?
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest Hejman 9/22/12 8:48 PM
Shoot!  Sprout points out to me that he made this quiz several months ago:

US Historical Figures from Money Portraits

I didn't remember it (though I had actually played it) and unfortunately it didn't come up during my search.  Other than the fact that included the state quarters series, it's the same quiz.  Yikes!  I'll try to come up with something else for this competition.


Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest googlebird 9/22/12 9:09 PM


I feel Hejman's pain. I had my quiz "Funny Money" ready to go and then I saw needapausebutton's entry with the same name. SNAP!
   I changed the name of my quiz. Here it is. Similar idea, but different images.

Damn, for a second there I honestly thought the theme was what the winner gets:)
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest SproutCM 9/22/12 10:02 PM
Hejman is a noble and wonderful man. I had made a bunch of money quizzes because I'm a gigantic huge coin collecting NERD.  I collect Canadian and US coins and I go to flea markets all the time and I even have "a dealer" and my parents think it is an addiction, but I'm sure I could stop at any time.

These are some of my old-school coin quizzes if you're curious:

Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest citkeane 9/23/12 10:24 AM
The similarity between napb's and googlebird's games is pretty unfortunate. There is probably a chance they'll cancel each other out when it comes time to vote, which is a shame since there are both good games and it was obviously just a coincidence that they both had the same idea.
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest titanjmg 9/23/12 10:50 AM
I'm thinking citkeane is right. I played both quizzes and liked them both a lot. One of them is currently my favorite of this competition and the other was very good but I didn't think it was quite as good. I'm guessing lots of people hold opposite opinions to that, and that is probably why, like citkeane said, they'll cancel each other out. They were really great quizzes, though, and good luck to everybody!
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest googlebird 9/23/12 10:50 AM

Hey...I don't want that to happen. I didn't even think of it. I don't mind if my quiz is eliminated from voting. I thought the images were different enough, otherwise I wouldn't have submitted it.
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest needapausebutton 9/23/12 11:13 AM
To googlebird:    It just so happens that I'd just sent you an e-mail about all of this, because I fully empathized with you for what happened... I'm sure both of us had a moment of frustration about the situation, and have each chosen to be gracious about it and move forward "positively".

 The aforementioned e-mail was written in that mode  :)

To All:      Personally, I'm not worried about this. I loved googlebird's quiz. So if other players out there happen to like both of ours, that's terrific. If we knock each other out of this particular contest, I'm sure the winning entry will be just as worthy as either of ours might have been. So I don't remotely think googlebird's should be "eliminated from voting".

I'm a fan of googlebird, and the recent thread about "Collaboration" is in indicator that working together harmoniously is the focus, and that is a focus I share.

Perhaps for the next contest, someone can come up with some sort of posted "Contest Quizzes Already-In-Progress" list, so that as we contemplate the construction of a quiz, we'll know if someone has already taken on that idea. I do believe that someone had a "premonition" that this sort of thing could occur ;)



Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest vikZ 9/23/12 12:57 PM
I don't have enough free time to make a quiz for this contest. But good luck to everyone who's entering!
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest googlebird 9/23/12 3:58 PM
I want to officially withdraw my entry "Spot a Counterfeit" from the voting line up. I will contribute a replacement when I get an idea. needapausebutton contributed his quiz first and I should have thought about how similar quizzes would cancel each other out. Congrats to needapausebutton on his first image quiz. That's not an easy task. On top of that he had the nerve to apologize to me!? No sir, I wasn't thinking and I am sorry. But, like I told needapausebutton, I think the true spirit of the contest is to inspire quiz makers to get their creative juice flowing. It's not about the contest. It's about making more quality quizzes on Sporcle. So I think it all works out in the end.
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest needapausebutton 9/23/12 5:10 PM
I agree with googlebird about the spirit of these quiz-making endeavors.

I'm the one who posed the question after the first contest "Why not make this a 'Challenge', rather than a 'Contest'" -- because I shared googlebird's outlook on inspiring quiz makers, and having that be the focus.

Never for a moment did I presumptuosly feel that either of our quizzes "would win" this round of competition, and I actively encouraged that googlebird's  quiz be left in the competition.

I'll repeat my suggestion that if these remain as "contests", that there be a way to list games that are being worked on. I truly felt bad that so much time was spent working on an excellent quiz, and my "apology" to googlebird was more of an "acknowledgement" of the frustration that the scenario of dual-themed quizzes led to.

Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest BanjoZebra 9/23/12 7:40 PM
@needapausebutton:

Honestly, the main reason why I wanted this to be a contest and not a "challenge" is because the quizzes that come out of this contest are extremely creative.
If this was just a challenge, users would not be pressured to make the best quiz they can think of that fits the theme. So, then, the final products wouldn't be so incredible.
But as it is, we've had tens of entries in all three of these contests so far, and I think people are loving it. The "contest" seems to be a very enjoyable and successful format, anyways.

Besides all that, I think these contests are pretty fun. :)
Re: The Third Quiz-Making Contest needapausebutton 9/23/12 8:42 PM
@BanjoZebra:

To clarify -- I'm fully on board, just the way it is, and I'll try to rephrase things so that I do not appear self-contradictory in the process...

Firstly: Sorry, I didn't mean to appear to be like I was "re-lobbying" there to get rid of the "contest" format. I'd already accepted that it was going to remain a contest after I'd made the original suggestion! (Hence, my continued participation in contests #2 and #3; and my enthusiasm for the recent victors & contributors whose quizzes I've been wowed by).

I was just trying to emphasize creative quizzery and de-emphasize the "win/lose" aspects, so I used that as an example of how such a format would ONLY focus on creating great games while inviting participation from all.

And I DO agree with you that people are loving it -- as it is -- and it has been successful.

I would argue that if you, or someone else, had originally presented a Quiz-making "Challenge" that it WOULD have resulted in an array of incredible quizzes as well.  But we'll never know, and besides, it is a moot thing to mull about.

So, I'm at peace with these continuing on in contest-format, and I thank you for the huge amount of enthusiasm, time and energy you've brought to us by originating and coordinating them.

I love the quiz-making contest idea! I'm a little late to this one, but I made a quiz about money almost a year ago:

Razorz, I think you just missed out. Voting has already begun. Also, old quizzes were explicitly disallowed this time around.
