April 2018 Recap – Random Trivia Generator by the Numbers

Hello dear readers and fans of the Random Trivia Generator and welcome to the first update of 2018. 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. Since the year started, our family gained a new family member which resulted in me focusing my energy elsewhere for a bit. But now that the little man is comfortable sitting by himself, I can focus on my hobbies.

New Questions

Since the last monthly recap in October we added 427 new questions to the main Random Trivia Generator website. As of this post, we are sitting at 19,744 trivia questions and I am hoping to cross the 20,000 barrier in the near future.

I want to thank everyone who sent in questions. I have been trying to catch up on user-submitted questions since the end of last year but things are a bit slow as there are hundreds of submissions that I need to go through, verify and fix some spelling mistakes.

New Quizzes and Rounds

Not much has happened since October 2017 as creating new themed quizzes and rounds takes effort and sometimes all I have is a few minutes to add one or two questions. I did have the time to create a 2017 recap quiz and start a new series of trivia rounds based on countries starting with a specific letter.

Stay tuned for even more questions next month.
