Add a Quiz Section to IMDb, Allow Users to Make Quizzes.

IMDb already has a Poll area, with polls contributed by users.  This would basically be the same thing, only the users make trivia quizzes!  The quizzes could be for shows, movies, music, celebrities, etc.  It could be along the lines of the trivia on the website of MeTV:  https://www.metv.com/quiz/

I ask that whoever is in charge of the ideas and suggestions on GS seriously consider this.  The quiz questions could be verified to be true so no incorrect information would get out there.  I think it would be a very popular addition to the site and very fun for the users.  

Thank you!

NarniaisAwesome,

It looks like IMDb already has the software for creating quizzes. However, this looks like it is exclusively available to the IMDb Editorial Staff.

Dan, 
First I will respond to your previous comment.  So far, I know Ed, SeventhAr7, and I have expressed actual interest in authoring quizzes.  Not sure if can promise 10 hours a week, but I probably will be suggesting trivia very often.  Between me and any others there should be plenty of quizzes to go around.  

I'm not really prepared to setup and blog or anything, but I can show you some quiz ideas on this thread; that I will get to later on this post.

The quiz software is very interesting... the way I understand it it is only accessible to IMDb employees?  If that could be changed, that would solve everything.  :)

Before I end, I would like to say that if this is not do-able, I understand.  As I said in a post way above, I know the staff can only do what they believe is necessary.  Thank you!

Quiz Ideas (rough drafts, not yet polished):  I am assuming the questions will be multiple choice.

Can You Guess the Sitcom by the First 2 Words in the Theme Song?

Which Actor is Taller?  (Each question consists of two actors; guess which one is taller)

Can You Match the Quote to the Correct Mystery Science Theater 3000 Episode?  (I'm a personal MST fan; this quiz can really be done with any show)

Which of These Films Did Not Win an Oscar?

Can You Name All of These (place movie/show here) Characters?

Hope these make sense!  That's just a few ideas - I think of them all the time!

Correct!  There are literally tons of options for a poll like that.

Bear: "No ma'am, I don't.  The highest I've ever been up is on a kid's shelf!  Do have any honey?"
Stewardess had fainted from shock that Bear talks; but she spoke to him in the first place!

ACT_1, 
No, we were not really referencing Ted - we were just goofing off about the bear in the Die Hard pic.  ;)

I haven't seen H&W!  I kinda wanted to but it's out of the theater now.  Will give it a try when it's on DVD.  ;)

New quiz idea: Did These TV Actors Ever Play a Double Role on Their Show?

1. The castaways were always meeting other people on the island; sometimes doubles.  Did Bob Denver ever play as both Gilligan and  someone else?

2.  How about Tina Louise (Ginger)?

3. Did Chuck Connors ever play two people on his show The Rifleman?

4.  Did Craig T. Nelson ever play Hayden Fox and someone else on Coach?

5.  Did Barbara Eden ever play two women on I Dream of Jeannie (excluding times she transformed herself to look like someone else)?

6.  Did Melissa Gilbert ever play two people on Little House on the Prairie?

7.  We all know Patty Duke played two little girls on her show, but did she ever play triple role?
