Random Responses

I regularly receive e-mails with corrections, some of which are valid, suggestions for alternative answers, ways questions can be misinterpreted and so on. I take each one seriously and I do look into every request. I often have a discussion with users, especially those who are related to people whose names are forever immortalized, and we end up rephrasing questions or sometimes completely eliminating some from the database.

Once in a while, I get such requests submitted as questions. I take those seriously as well, but I cannot have discussions with those users because there is no way to contact them back. When you submit a question, this site does not capture any private details, just the question you submit. Therefore, I have decided to publish some responses publicly now in the hopes that the user sees the response. There won’t be many of these posts since these submissions are rare, but here goes it…random response #1.

I received the following from a user (there are no edits):

“question” : “? #7 says peacocks do not lay eggs”
“answer” : “You need to correct it. They do lay eggs. “

Unfortunately there is no indication to which question this is referring to. After a bit of digging through the 20,000+ question, I concluded that it refers to the following one:

“question” : “What color eggs do peacocks lay?”
“answer” : “They don’t lay eggs”

The reason why this question will not be changed is because it is meant to be a tricky question. Peacocks do not lay eggs, but peahens do. A peacock is a male peafowl while a peahen is a female peafowl. Males from these species do not lay eggs.

If it makes everyone feel better, I fell for this question years ago so I made it one of the first trivia questions when I created the original database.

September 2018 Recap – Random Trivia Generator by the Numbers

Hello dear readers and fans of the Random Trivia Generator and welcome to another monthly update. The purpose of these posts is to provide a peek behind the curtain and all the action that takes place to bring the tens to thousands of trivia questions to users. It has been a couple of months since the last update but I have had a busy summer and was away for a while. Now that Fall is here, I am back to spending time on writing trivia and working on minor updates in the background.

New Questions

Since the last monthly recap in April we added 111 new questions to the main Random Trivia Generator website. As of this post, we are sitting at 20,081 trivia questions. The 20,000 threshold was broken at the end of August and was celebrated with a round of questions focusing on the number 20.

I want to thank everyone who sent in questions and corrections. I am still tackling the submissions but I am down to the last 20 at the moment.

New Quizzes and Rounds

Since the last update in June, I only published the celebratory round on the number 20.
