Please do not "fill up" your Personality Quiz with "cheater questions." These are questions that do not take much research and are not very interesting. Some examples of this are:
1. When was he born?
2. Where was he born?
3. When did he die?
4. How old was he when he moved to Texas?
Not only are these questions not very interesting, but people just don't remember these types of facts. Who remembers dates?!
Our editors usually allow one of these types of questions per quiz. However, what we take most into account is the entire content set of your quiz. If it appears to us that you're just trying to "fill up" your quiz with trite little facts like those above, your quiz will be rejected. We will then send it back to you for editing. If you update your quiz to a point that we feel is acceptable, your quiz will be accepted. If you choose NOT to update your quiz to an acceptable level, our editors may edit and publish your quiz for you. However, you will NOT receive credit for the quiz or credit towards the current contest.
Bottom line, please make your questions robust and interesting. Try to focus on a person's life accomplishments and struggles. Make your quiz a robust, well-rounded report of a person's life!
For more details about quiz writing, please see the Quiz Design Guidelines under the Introduction tab on the front page.
