Ultimate Quiz Mod

Postby battye » Sun Aug 29, 2004 12:38 pm

I'm making a new MOD, a Quiz Mod. It will allow you to make and play quizzes :)
Before I really get into it, I need to know what people want to see in it though, like layout, features etc.

Thanks,

lol bacon :lol:
why don't i make a 'The Panel' section just for you :lol:

It will be about all subjects, but maybe an idea is to have categories to group the quizzes by? Similar to the front page of the forum maybe? :)

Keep the suggestions coming guys :D

categorizing is good, but that depends on the number of quizes that are going to be made. There really isnt any bad way to go about doing it. You can list quizes the creation date or cateogrize them, which is a good idea also.

To begin, I think listing them descending by date is the best idea, then start to touch on categories :)
Just thinking of what the easiest way to begin is.

Sounds like fun...

I would think that by categorizing under topics and also listing by date would make it easier for people to recognize what they want..... JMO

Development has begun, I've created a DEV topic over at phpBB, be sure to check it out :D

http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=222002

There are a few links to some Beta stuff I've been doing as well, the index page is coming along nicely, but with its fair share of problems :lol:

Maybe now is a good time to start compiling some questions for a test set of quizzes ? How many do you think we should have per quiz ?

It's currently at 5 questions per quiz, but we aren't at any real stage yet. Any questions have to be entered manually into the database...
I'll let you all know when we have a working MOD :)

No, it's not automated. All the quizzes are made by the users, so make as many as you want Bongo! :D
