The end – and a new beginning

Greetings! The first Don Quizote League has come to an end, but this hopefully marks the beginning of a new era for Don Quizote, IIT Bombay’s Quizzing Blog. Certainly, more such events will be coming, so keep those brains sharp – there are roughly 1300 questions here on Don Quizote, dating back to 2009! 5th May, 2009, to be precise, when the first post of Don Quizote went up. If you’d like to stay informed of events, announcements and questions, do follow the blog (the blue button below the leaderboard link in the sidebar).

Thank you to everyone who participated! We kept going out mainly because answers kept coming in. We are flattered by the response we have received, and we hope you enjoyed!

The Results

The coveted 1st place is a tie between BAIBASWATA BIJNANA JENA and upadhyapreetham! They both stand at a staggering 609 points each, impressively close to the maximum possible 700! Not far behind to grab 3rd place is Sanchit Jindal, at 589 points! These three will be winning the Amazon gift cards!

They’re followed by suryansh at 4th place, with 492 points, and Garv Chandalia rounding off the top 5 with 451 points!

And for honorary mentions, we have the rest of the top 15 here! ->

And the complete leaderboard is here.

Congratulations to all the 58 people who got onto the leaderboard! And to those who were unable to, well, there are more such events to come!

The Future

Sounds a bit like a company’s post to consumers, we realise. xD But we want to inform you all, old quizzers and new, of what to expect from the blog.

The first DQ League was a great success, with over 6000 views in 10 days, and the 970,000 total views milestone being crossed. But we’d like to reach even more of those who would enjoy quizzing at IITB, and of course it would be splendid to cross the much coveted 1 million views mark this year.

We’re planning on holding another Don Quizote League in the winter, as well as potential smaller events between then and now. The post-midsem break just asks for something to happen. And of course, there will be proper quizzes held over video calls, so do attend those for an even better quizzing experience!

But to better know what you’d like, in questions, events, and the website itself, we’d like your inputs here. There’s a bonus question waiting for those who fill it! (Yes, we’re bribing you.)

You’re of course also free to comment anything you want, including feedback, here, though we prefer the form for feedback.

Thanks again, and see you soon with more quizzing content!
