Hello dear readers and fans of the Random Trivia Generator and welcome to the first of, what I hope is, many monthly update posts. 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.
This month we added 145 new questions to the main Random Trivia Generator website. As of this post, we are sitting at 17,199 trivia questions.
New Quizzes and Rounds
The following new trivia rounds and quizzes were added:
- The Weekend Edition – 10 More Totally Random Trivia Questions
- The Pub Trivia Round
- Random Movie Trivia – The Sixth Sense
- Valentine’s Day Trivia Round
- Car Trivia Quiz (a 55 question quiz all about cars!)
- Academy Awards Trivia Round
That’s another 107 questions!
We are slowly tagging all questions with specific sub-categories in preparation of one of the most requested features – sub-categories! The process is very time consuming as we need to re-evaluate each question and what general sub-categories it could be tagged under. This activity also allows us to do some double-checking of the facts and the spelling.
For the eagerly, check out the preliminary implementation on the old website.
Stay tuned for even more questions next month.
By popular demand, and to celebrate the 2017 Canadian Auto Show, here is a 5 round, 55 question trivia quiz on cars!
10 Valentine’s Day Trivia Questions to entertain your lover…also some joke is supposed to go here, but I couldn’t think of anything that wasn’t filthy.
After some time in development (and a lot of holding page teasing), our new look is finally live. Welcome to the new Random Trivia Generator!
Everything is new! Except for the tens of thousands of trivia questions which are still here. The new look was designed from the ground up to work seamlessly across all popular device platforms. So if you are using your smartphone to look up trivia questions, you no longer have to squint or zoom in to be able to read the questions.
Not only did we completely update the look, and modernized the platform, but we also added some new user-suggested features, like card view and hidden answers. Don’t worry if you don’t see that feature you really wanted. We are working on lots of new features that will be rolled out in the future.
Take the new Random Trivia Generator out for a spin and enjoy the following new features:
- Card and List views
- Tap-to-reveal answers in Card view
- Customizable random quiz generator
- Category-specific lists
- Infinite scrolling (my favorite!)
- Improved trivia submittal tool
The work doesn’t end with this update. We are shifting our focus on developing new features to make trivia nights easier and more enjoyable. But we also haven’t forgotten our #1 priority – trivia questions. While we are working on new features and rolling them out, we will also be adding new trivia questions to the database and to this blog.
