7/26/2017 – Hi again – I’m looking to hopefully by the end of August begin redoing the site with a fresh look and new features, hopefully to be done sometime before the end of September. This includes a new design, appearance, scorekeeping (hopefully with live leaderboards) and more. Keep an eye out! Also I will be removing the Flash quizzes and geography quizzes that aren’t using Google Maps by then (remaking some of them after the remodel) to make the site more clean and organized.

    First off, I love this quiz. Thanks for making it. But just fyi, I can’t get it to accept the title for D’Angelo’s #1 ranked 2014 album, “Black Messiah.”

    Darkness on the Edge of Town (that’s got to be the Springsteen from 78, right?) doesn’t work. Also, I don’t think there’s enough (any?) time bonuses – I assume you get them for knowing every album from a year, but that’s tough to do. There should at least be some other bonuses – for identifying each number 1, for instance, or some general “100 albums” or “200 albums” bonuses. Even trying to get all the top 3 is really hard in the time.

      fixing now – making the bonuses for total songs lower totals and adding a few min to beginning time.
      1. 0
        Yeah, that’s really helpful. Now I end up giving up because I’ve run out of things I know, rather than racing the clock. Another error – Janet Jackson’s 1986 album is “Control”. (Nasty was the name of the lead single).
