@all: For the last 2 days, I have been putting up some quizzes in the Topics section, with the following design: . 1. Each quiz starts with a statement. . 2.... more...
Then a question, followed by 4-6 choices. . 3. AFTER a member makes a choice, all the other choices are revealed, along with the creator's choice and a detailed correct answer and some web links. . 4. The number of Topics will be increased in the coming weeks. Also, other languages like Hindi, etc. will be allowed. . 5. Quiz statistics will also be collected with a member's Correct Score indicating their knowledge of that Topic. . This type of quiz was meant to be created right in the early days of IRI, but somehow kept getting postponed. I have personally believed that quizzing is a good way to activate our minds to learn more about the world. . Going forward, after another week of testing, the quiz section will be opened up to all members to post their own quizzes with the above design. . One important thing about quizzes is that Quality and Accuracy are very important. For this reason, the role of Monitors for Quizzes will be more significant. We would need to have Quiz Monitors PER Topic, based on their knowledge of that topic. . The above changes will be made in the coming weeks and months. Meanwhile, I myself will be posting quizzes in the next week or so to test the feature and gather feedback. . Thanks for everyone's participation with the quizzes.

Today, we are introducing a new Topic called NEWS-CRITIC.
These days, everyday, we are bombarded with spam news, exaggerated news, misleading news, fake news, useless celebrity news, click bait with misleading headlines, etc. Also, much of the news is copied and rewritten from other news outlets, instead of being written first-hand. Everyone...
Over the last few days, there have been concerns expressed by many members that politics are being discussed.
