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?
In the summer of 2010, my dad used to play the Sporcle quizzes ESPN would embed on their website. He eventually found the full site, and introduced me to it, and I made my account that August.
Why did you decide to be a curator for your subcategory?
I had previously been a curator a few years ago, and after finding my way back to the site mid-2018, I decided I wanted to get back into curating, so I applied for Sitcom when it opened up. This or That opened up about a couple months ago, and I applied for it because I enjoy making and playing those style quizzes, and it also allows for me to look for quizzes from a wide array of topics.
What’s your favourite trivia fact having to do with you subcategory?
I was surprised to find out that Steve Urkel didn’t appear on Family Matters until the twelfth episode, and he was only intended as a one-off character. It’s hard to imagine that show today with him.
What are some of your favourite published quizzes from your subcategory?
One of my favorites in sitcom is Mis-Matched Television Sitcoms by stevenmiller61. For This or That, I have to go with the classic The Beatles or Rebecca Black? By rockgolf.
What are some of your favourite contributed quizzes from your subcategory?
In This or That, this quiz by THEJMAN has a unique and cool format. Sitcom has a lot of good logic puzzles, including this one by DavidHoban.
What are your favourite quizzes from an entirely different category?
I’m a big fan of MLB quizzes, especially quizzes like this one which tests knowledge of stat leaders over several years. I also like playing music clip quizzes.
How can Sporclers in your subcategory best contact you?
I can be reached through Sporcle messaging.
Are there any Sporclers whose quizzes you think merit more attention than they get?
I’ve been enjoying WalshyMusic’s quizzes lately, and I also really like the Letter Grid series started by nateeverett and continued by Joshie_the_great.
Haiku or favourite Dad Joke (or both)
“Dad, I’m hungry.”
“Nice to meet you hungry; I’m Dad.”
