For the past few years at least, we've been trying to add a new feature to BZPower during the anniversary. This year is no different, and today we're unwrapping the Quiz System! Are you the ultimate font of LEGO knowledge? Now you can see if you know more than everyone else! In the long term, only Premier Members will be able to make polls, but while everyone still has Premier perks, anyone can make one! Of course, all members will be able to take quizzes and compare your scores to the rest of the site. Head over there now, and you might see a couple of old favorites to help get you started.

Really glad to see this return! I've taken quizzes 2 and 3, but it seems that the scoring system is a bit off. I scored 82% on Quiz 3, but my score is listed at 27% on the leaderboard.

This is a really cool feature! I just had a quick play around with making one - will it be possible/allowed to make fun little "personality" type quizzes? Like as in "Which Metru-Nui district suits you most?" kind of quizzes? I can understand avoiding those but I have a soft spot for them. :P

 

(Will be attempting the current quizzes after I've done my revision and have a spare 7.5 hours. :P )

Wow, that's a crazy coincidence. I was just thinking a few days ago how cool the Ultimate Bionicle Quizzes were and how I'd like to see them return.

Anyway, this looks like a great new feature in general, and Quiz creation is an interesting new exclusive feature for Premier Members.

I'm not a huge fan of quizzes. Of course, I could definitely make a BIONICLE colors quiz to see how people do. "What was the last year parts in 25 Earth Orange appeared in sets?" "Which color did Medium Stone Grey replace?" "What is the official name of Rahkshi Turahk's armor color?" "Which of the following colors was not used for the Toa Mata?" But my time would probably be better spent on creating some kind of resource to actually educate people than on throwing arbitrary questions at them.

BWhat was the last year parts in 25 Earth Orange appeared in sets?

2003. Though if you want to be pedantic, those "Spring cleaning" Creator/Bionicle tubs from post-'03 had the occasional pieces due to their nature.

Which color did Medium Stone Grey replace?

Grey. Yes, just grey. Not dark grey or the very rare light grey (which never made it into technic or even system iirc.)

What is the official name of Rahkshi Turahk's armor color?.

Okay I legitimately can't remember. I want to say metallic bright red because that's what it resembles, but I know that isn't it.

Ooh, you're good. You're actually right with each question. No need to doubt yourself on the third one — Metallic Bright Red is Turahk's armor color, as you can see in its Brickset inventory. I do not actually know of any other sets that used this color (other than buckets that contained overstock Turahk parts, of course).

Well, I got 71% on Quiz 2 (BZP questions and MoL cast ruined me) and was so happy to be at the top of the leaderboard, but I'm at the bottom. With 7%, right under Bonesiii, our master of reference, with 8%. Something's not right there.

Scored 53% -> appear at the bottom with 4%. :c

 

Great feature nonetheless, I was actually looking for some BIONICLE trivia like this a few days back but couldn't find anything worthwhile. :)

The Vahki is cheese and Hoi Turtles fly.

 

Yarr, that leaderboard system is messed up. I actually got 90% on the Ninjago Quiz, and while my score on the UB4 is not going to win me any gold medals, it is higher than 13%. :P [Edit: It appears that the board makes it so that you can't score higher than the previous person on the leaderboard. Which is confusing, but there you go.]

 

And while I'm here, some of the questions on the UB4 are confusing and noncanon. There were two questions with two Ga-Matoran of the same name, so I got the correct answer but it was marked wrong anyway. [/complaints]

I took the Ultimate Quiz 2 and there appeared to be some errors made in the questions, but I assume that those are probably kept in the interest of the preservation of the test in its original form. In any case, it is neat to see the quizzes back after all of this time. Shame that the ranking banners aren't still tied into the whole system.

I scored 100% on the Basic Ninjago Quiz #1! Yeah, the leaderboards are a bit messed up. They say I got a score of 14%, even though the results page says I got all ten questions correct.

I actually would have phrased some of the questions on that differently, since the official season numbers are a bit up in the air. Cartoon Network and the American DVDs treat "Way of the Ninja" and "King of Shadows" as a stand-alone TV special, "Rise of the Snakes" through "Day of the Great Devourer" as Season 1, "Darkness Shall Rise" through "Rise of the Spinjitzu Master" as Season 2. But WilFilm and most international DVDs treat "Way of the Ninja" and "King of Shadows" as Season 1 and "Rise of the Snakes" through "Rise of the Spinjitzu Master" as Season 2. So this year's episodes are treated as Season 3 in all regions, and presumably all future episodes will also share the same numbering in all regions.

71% on Ultimate Quiz 4, neat! Do we have 7.5 hours for each quiz because we're allowed to do research before submitting our answers? 'Cause I completely missed that part until after I was done :P

It's awesome that the quizzes are a thing again, they're quite fun.

This is a new one:

I always wanted to know what my name/av looked like on the notification log, but I think the spacing there could use a little improvement. Also I didn't know quizzes could be drafted until I was done, so yeah. There's definitely some kinks in the works, but it's still fun. :)

I look forward to how this will be used, quizzes are always fun and a good refresher on info. Was going to mention the scoring issue in order to prove that I know more than 7% about the Toa... but I see you are already aware, B6. :P

Oops! I forgot no one else could see the tab. It should be at the top of the forums now, between the gallery and raffles.

I'd like to take some quizzes, but do you think I should hold off until the scoreboard issue is resolved, just in case the percentages can't be corrected later?
