Pictures in Quizzes
I've been on this site a year and haven't made a suggestion yet. But this is something I've often thought about:
Would it be difficult to make the quizzes not only text based? Currently, we can click on an icon and it pulls up the image. I think that including the images for each question (say, the current size of the quiz image) beside it would be an improvement.
Why would this be a good thing?
(1) Unless a player wanted to see it full size, it would eliminate the need to have to click on the icon, making quiz taking faster and smoother.
(2) The Internet is all about eye candy - look no further than any blog, myspace page etc. for proof. Pictures would add that extra "zest" to a quiz that is lacking in a text-only format.
(3) The ability to add media to a quiz question is one of the many wonderful things that separate this site from the other trivia websites. Why not accentuate the positive? Imagine a hundred magazines on the same subject with no pictures, and one fully illustrated. Which one would be the most popular?
Just an idea. Maybe it would be too difficult to change, and maybe others disagree. Those with slow Internet connections would surely suffer - but dial-up is certainly a thing of the past, right? Something to think about anyway.
