Earn SparkPoints When You Play SparkPeople Trivia


Monday, May 18, 2009



Good morning, SparkPeople!

We're excited to launch a fun new feature today called SparkPeople Trivia!

You'll find it in the Wellness section of the site, as well as the Healthy Lifestyle Home tab and your SparkPoints page. Basically, when you choose to play our trivia game each day, you'll receive a random assortment of multiple-choice health, fitness and nutrition questions. You can take as many tries as you need to correctly answer 3 questions each day. Once you answer 3 questions correctly, the game is over (until tomorrow) and you'll earn 3 SparkPoints!

Plus, you can choose to place yourself on our trivia Leaderboards to see how your overall score ranks with other members. It's a fun way to learn more about living a healthy lifestyle!

You can play trivia now by clicking here.

We hope you enjoy playing, learning and competing with other members using SparkPeople Trivia!

    Is there a way I can go back to see the questions I missed. There have been several instances when I hit the next button before I realize there is a linked article to find out more. I'd really like to be able to see the questions I missed... or may want to learn more for the ones I actually got right too. Thanks!

    I really liked the idea of the Wellness Trivia to earn points, and to track our ranking with others. However, in practice, it has been very frustrating, as I attempt to move up on the board.

The wording of some of your Trivia questions have been misleading and some questions are making Trivia exclusively American when SP is an international community.

How do those people on the Leadership Board get 100 Percent correct? I think they skip questions that they might miss, answering only the ones they are certain of the correct answer.

Please make these questions less ambiguous and think about eliminating the way you score on the Leadership Board. Instead of listing the percentage of correct answers (keep that on an individual basis only), list the ones who have participated the most days that month: If I answer 3 questions correctly, no matter how many I missed, it counts as participating. If on June 26 I have answered 3 correct questions every day, I am 100 percent. If I missed a day, my percentage goes down, and I go down on the board.

If you make that change (and revise the questions to make them less misleading or "tricky") I think you will inspire people to learn more by answering questions they do not already know FOR SURE.

Please consider revising the program, and the questions/answers to make them more clear.

If you want some examples of ambiguous questions/answers, please drop me a SparkMail.

    Some of the Trivia answers are wrong, or are marked as wrong on my scorecard, yet correct in the explanation. Example: Which of these do not lead to high blood pressure. I marked high intake of calcium. Game said my answer was incorrect. The explanation said high intake of calcium does not lead to high blood pressure. These need to be checked. Fun game anyway.

    I thought I knew a lot more than I do about food, etc. Very good and as Sherry666 said it is great that it explains the answers for us.

    I love trivia to begin with. so this is a lot of fun for me to play. Is there a way to set up an email to come to our home emails about this. Like our Healthy Reflections and others come to us?

    This was fun. Point of interest, though, the Leaderboard has a bug in it. Pages 3, 4, 5, 6 and I don't know how many more pages because I stopped looking at them are duplicate pages. Same members, same scores, same percentages.
