Taking Over the World One Quiz at a Time

Taking Over the World One Quiz at a Time

Melanie Kibiler

Every bored student knows the joy of taking a buzzfeed quiz, but how much work really goes into making a quiz?  To solve this question, The Laker Current staff member, Melanie Kibler, took it upon herself to create a quiz.


Step 1: Making the Buzzfeed Account

This seems like it would be simple enough, but really it is quite difficult.  This is mostly due to the fact that Buzzfeed kept kicking us out as we tried to create our account.  Once that was finally made we moved on to step 2.


Step 2: Picking the Topic

This is the hardest step out of all of them.  We guarantee that you will spend the first two days staring at your computer screen until you want to rip out your hair.  Don’t believe us? Try it, we dare you. Once you come to the realization that you will never be able to do this alone we suggest that you go to your friends and ask for help.  More often than not they will have a fun/stupid idea/inside joke that will work perfectly. (If they don’t, you might want to find funnier friends.) After figuring out our topic we went around in a circle answering silly questions until we had enough material to fill the quiz.


Step 3: Building the Quiz

This is step is fairly easy, just time consuming, especially if you decide to add pictures to go with your answers.  We found that it was easy to type in the question and then the answers, so we tried to get fancy. This turned out to be a mistake, but it was too late to turn back.  When you add a picture you also have to site were your picture came from. We spent at least two days filling in the questions with pictures.


Step 4: Publishing and Praying

After we spent days on our quiz we published it to Buzzfeed, only to find out that you have to be verified by the Buzzfeed community.  This basically means that for the general public to see it you have to have so many views and comments. So we figured the only thing left to do was wait and pray that people went on our quiz
