The Art of Curating is a continuation of the Curator Knows Best blog series on the Sporcle Blog. The series features opinions, top-notch quizzes and quizmakers, bits of trivia, and even a joke at the end from Sporcle’s great curators.
How did you first get involved with Sporcle?
My cousin introduced it to me when I was 5-ish or so. However, I didn’t create an account until after then. I never thought I would be playing it for 7 years, though!
Why did you decide to be a curator for your subcategory?
I picked my subcategory because I had been applying for curatorships for a long time, and I knew a good amount about geography, so I took my chances!
What’s your favourite trivia fact having to do with you subcategory?
Alaska is the size of over 500 Rhode Islands!
What are some of your favourite published quizzes from your subcategory?
Find the US States – No Outline Minefield
It’s the most popular quiz of all time, and it’s that for a reason! It’s just so darn clever.
What are some of your favourite contributed quizzes from your subcategory?
There’s too many contributed quizzes to pick! I love all of them the same. *Though I will say for some reason there are a lot of sports quizzes in the State subcategory for no reason.*
What are your favourite quizzes from an entirely different category?
Games by Cupcake
I’ve always been a gamer, and I love cupcakes, so this is an obvious like for me.
Which Sporcle Group do you frequent most often?
The Game Room. I host a game there from time to time called Tune it, which is a music game. Other than that, Sporcle News. You gotta stay fresh with all the Sporcle news!
How can Sporclers in your subcategory best contact you?
Send me a message, and take my criticisms. Some people message me, I give them feedback, and they don’t change! It angers me, and I’ll definitely not pick your quiz now!
Are there any Sporclers whose quizzes you think merit more attention than they get?
So many. But there’s too many quizzes, I will say that the more publishes/CPs/EPs you get the more you are likely to get more publishes/CPs/EPs. Don’t give up!
Haiku or favourite Dad Joke (or both):
Had the formula
