    I was considering adding a quiz addon to my gaming forum and creating any quizzes related to gaming and youtube topics. I think it could be something different, i have some great ideas for quizzes to add. What do you think about quizzes? are they past their time now?

    I like quizzes, if done well. I use a quiz add on for one of my own sites, and it seems to work well enough.

    Of course, it works better if you can give people a badge or something with their score on afterwards... they can use it on third party forums as a way to draw people to your site.

    I think they could be really fun, but it depends on the context. Generic gaming quizzes might be boring for a lot of people, but specific quizzes might generate more excitement. Say, for instance, a quiz on a forum that's dedicated to Final Fantasy. Those users would likely enjoy FF quizzes vastly more than someone on a general gaming forum that's answering questions ranging from PC gaming to console gaming — it's hard to target their specific interests if things are generalized.

    A quiz addon would be cool.

    I tested a quiz add-on with our beta testing group, and it didn't seem worth adding to our main site. People seemed to mildly enjoy them, but not enough to warrant keeping.

    I tried a quiz system on IPS. It's difficult to gage interest or to gain traction amoung members. The biggest mistake with most quiz add-on's is making them a seperate app.

    I would be better if a quiz add-on would work like a forum poll where you add a allow members to add short quiz to general discussion post.

    Adding quizzes as an app with it's own tab doesn't create much user engagement.
