User-submitted Content

To be able to post a quiz to the App server, a user must log in via one of the proposed social networks (currently facebook or google+). YoupiQuiz is a community supported App, relying on its user community for the bulk of its primary content. Currently we accept quizzes submitted in respect of the simple rules specified in the corresponding section of the App user interface. In order to maintain the quality of our content offerings, only quizzes fulfilling our Publication Criteria are selected to be published to publicly accessible portions of the App.

Any quiz posted to this App would not content any material likely to be considered an explicit or implied insult to a person, racially or culturally insensitive material, sexual content, or other material not suited for a family audience including small children.

We reserve the right to moderate the content posted on YoupiQuiz, both during and after the submission process. The moderators may delete or edit content; manually or via automated means including the use of user-generated data to obtain quizzes eligible for publication on this App.

Publication Criteria

Each quiz posted on YoupiQuiz is checked to determine first if the content is acceptable according to our exclusion criteria for prohibited content. If the content is in principle acceptable, then the quiz will be validated if the following conditions are met:

– Neither the question nor the clues must not contain the answer of the quiz

– The clues should provide enough information that validate the proposed answer

– The answer must be verifiable and worthwhile for any user

As a thank you for your quiz submission, you will receive, upon publication, between 15 and 25 hints into your account depending on the quality of the posted quiz. The quality being determined by the published picture(s), number of clues, etc. An additional 5 hints will be granted to you if the posted quiz turns to be a multiple choice quiz.
