Participate in our weekly quiz!
With little easing in the restrictions, we will continue these "lockdown quizzes" for a few more weeks, but can only do so if members help out by contributing some questions. These quizzes have been downloaded by hundreds of members, but only a handful have responded to pleas for help in devising them. Many thanks for the efforts of those devisers, who can derive satisfaction from seeing their quizzes published and the entertainment hopefully enjoyed by members who "have a go", though we get very little feedback or thanks. So please do give some thought to contributing questions to keep the quizzes going a bit longer. Normally a quiz has 50-60 questions on a theme, but if you could devise a smaller number that could be combined with other members' contributions to make up a complete quiz. Send to Chris Wright.
Devising original questions can be an absorbing pastime. Please don't think your questions may be inadequate, as once Chris has the basis for a quiz they can often be modified. Please create only original questions, as plagiarism has copyright implications.
There is further guidance on copyright in the ‘support for u3as’ section, under ‘Keeping it legal’
For advice on all of this and running your own quiz sessions, including on Zoom, see the Quizzes page and contact Quizzes subject adviser, Chris Wright, who will be pleased to help.
