Interesting thoughts disguised as a quiz! With the huge number of titles being posted every day, I've often thought that new ideas will dry up eventually, rather like oil wells or gold mines do. I don't see that as a flaw of Jetpunk, but more a fact of nature. You've done the easy bit spotting a "problem", now are you up for the hard bit of creating solutions? I'd be interested to hear what you would do now to make Jetpunk "better".

I don't know. I think badges are a great addition and I hope to say more released. I also think making it easier to insert pictures or maps in quizzes would help. What do you think?

Inserting pictures isn't as easy as it should be, and purposefully too! Many images have copyrights attached, and allowing all users to go and insert random pictures into their quizzes would result in immediate "downhill" for the state of the site.

It's a point of view, with the last part optimistic, so I respect it. But doesn't this seem quite hypocritical, since this quiz itself if the "no good new quizzes" "no good quizzes being made" and "no new intelligent creators (much hypocracy, since you are a fairly new JetPunk and calling yourself not intelligent!). But we shouldn't only be looking at the cons! Look at the pros and how they came to be, and use the same methods to alter the cons into something better. :)

Agreed. I like how you made this quiz to show what you think. But as Jerry said, nitpicking is quite easy, but can you provide solutions to these problems? Also, what do you consider "stupid quizzes?

I am new to making quizzes on Jetpunk. There are certainly a lot of pros that I didn't mention, and I would say that JetPunk rivals Sporcle for the best quizzing site on the internet, and that JetPunk is definitely a very influential and important website. I'm just a little scared for the future

Quality over quantity for one. I know a few users in particular who need some practice, and others who are perfect at this ;)

I try to stick to 1 quiz a day, but I'll admit I got carried away today. I'll be more careful in the future

Honestly, I wasn't referring to you, but you admitted it and are willing to make a change, so that's awesome :)

The thing is I spent a long time accurately making a quiz about the countries of Europe in 1000 AD. I thought it was really cool and I worked really hard on it, but it only has 21 takes. That made me pretty sad considering how hard I worked on it and it got me thinking, what could be changed? I am still thinking and I'd love to know if anyone thinks of anything!

Yeah, I understand the frustration. It does seem like a lot of people make poor quality quizzes, and so creative or well-researched quizzes get buried in the shuffle.

JetPunk from 2012

The quality and quantity of the quizzes is higher than ever. I look at some of the old quizzes I wrote and am surprised by how bad they are!

We need a bit more quality control when it comes to user created quizzes I think. I have raised this in the past but I'm guessing the demands on the quizmasters time is the problem.

From a personal perspective, most of my quizzes aren't ever going to be featured given the subject they relate to, but there are some good well researched ones in there as well which could be featured if the quizmaster so chose. 400 plus quizzes and not one featured!

I love this site and I'm sure there is plenty more quizzes that can be done. Just need to unleash creativity and the well of quizzes will never run dry!

I floated the idea of letting quizzers in, say, the Top 200, nominate one of their own quizzes once in a while (every 3 months?) for featuring, and I still think that's a good idea. This would widen the pool of people being engaged with the process. The other suggestion I have is that the "ranking" system be updated to something more accurate, that incorporates at least (a) the numbers of quizzes, (b) their quality (so allow user feedback to establish that; it happens already with featured quizzes) and (c) the number of times taken. Take any one of those elements in isolation and you only get a partial picture. (Better still, scrap the leaderboard altogether so that quizzers get back to the real point of the exercise, which is to learn, to have fun, and enable fun for other users).

Nice Quiz, I will say one thing, I believe there is still a great variety of quizzes. I go to the recent quizzes page and I see a quiz about Call of Duty, then The Spanish-American War, followed by Beyonce, then New Zealand, parabolas, the Periodic Table and To Kill a Mockingbird. I believe there is still a good variety.

Some good suggestions in this quiz, some of which I think have been implimented since its creation.

Personally I think there is a good range of quizzes on lots of subjects although some of mine have been quantity over quality. I have now made a mental note to try and be more quality orientated. None of mine have been featured yet although there have been a couple of copycat quizzes that have been featured.Luck of the draw I suppose.

One thought I had was that whilst I take certain quizzes repeatedly (Countries of the World etc) just to keep myself up to date, why cant we get a bonus point for beating your own personal best time, or would that be too difficult to program?

What a uncool quiz. I make new, unique fun quizzes, pretty often. If you are bored, deal with it. Learn a new language and more quizzes will open up, or make good quizzes yourself.
