Doesn't Salami's Task 10 quiz technically apply to both tasks? I thought that was funny!|

Kyle, you've paired me with L_T in the synopsis for the last clue. I'm sprinting with Lones78. :)|

Oh you're right. I don't even notice that! Well yay to me. :-P i should a bonus. ;-)|

GET a bonus. How does an iPad delete the entire word? I know I type "the" a lot and only see an e, but to type "get" and see nothing? Geez.|

Hoping task ten is not time limited like the last one.|
Playmate1111 is in hospital with a septic finger and I'm quite busy looking after the zoo we have!

I hope Playmate is better soon!|

Poor playmate - hope he's better soon|
I'm hoping time limits aren't too tight as well as I'm still queue blocked on task 9.

Hard luck, Playmate. I hope to see you back soon.|

I just had someone apparently new to the site play one of my quizzes. She sent four correction noties. Not because there was anything wrong with the quiz itself - but because she got four questions incorrect.|
I can't even begin to tell you how happy that made me.
New to the site today and I got stuck with her.

That happens a lot more than you might think, but since it is usually younger players who hope to correct their mistake, they tend to be concentrated in pop culture categories. |

I got a CN a while ago from someone who said that some celebrity was not born in 1981.|
I had just barely mentioned her in the question, let alone her date of birth!

Lol - Pop culture. That's so funny. It's about the last adjective that could be associated with me. She definitely took a wrong turn somewhere there. |
I'm more like mothball culture.

Some people view correction notes as "you can correct my error and give me the points anyway".|
I hate those notes; I have often apologized to the editors in that little note when it says "why this correction is wrong" for inconveniencing them and wasting their time with such petty things. ;)

Mothball culture - I like that Creedy. Perhaps it should be an FT sub-category.|

There is no need for the author who received the 'correction' to feel any concern. The editor who handles the correction check will get in touch with the player who sent it and explain to them how the system works. It's all part of the education process that helps make the site run smoothly.

What a great idea, Christinap! :)|

Oh I didn't know that, LT - that the editors tell the correction senders about the process. I sent the girl a note to tell her that you only send correction notices if there's something wrong with the quiz/information etc, not if you get the answers wrong. |
Nice though. I even gave her a smiley face. She's new, poor kid. The site is very confusing for newbies. I almost needed a guide dog when first joining.

I've been here a couple of weeks over a year and it's STILL very confusing to me. There's just so MUCH of it to see and learn.|
But, I would think common sense would tell you that the CN's are not to correct your own errors as a quiz taker...
Reply #1039. Jul 06 12, 8:35 PM
Yes, I was unaware editors did that as well. Still, though, probably not the must fun thing an editor has to do. ;-)|
