Coincidentally, when I entered the forum to make this post, I saw a similar thread already going. But I don't think the comments in that thread, or in the thread it points to, fully address the problem, so please, read on.
I was exchanging messages with someone whose Tom Petty quiz I played. The person remarked that she couldn't see the quiz and wondered why it had been taken down. So we went back and forth: "I can see it / well I can't / but I can / well I still can't, etc."
I dug a bit deeper and here is what I found.http://funtrivia.com/quizzes/music/music_l-p/tom_petty.html
shows five Tom Petty quizzes: 81554, 172427, 152224, 16360, 166317 (I am listing them in the order they show on my screen). This is the link that one gets if they start at the main page, then go to music, music l-p, Tom Petty path.http://funtrivia.com/quizlistgold.cfm?cat=4985
also shows five Tom Petty quizzes: 81554, 187407, 172427, 152224, 16360. This is what you get if you enter the category more directly, such as by clicking on a list of quizzes created by a player.
On the first list but not the second is this quiz: Tom Petty Kingdom (#166317), "These are multiple-choice questions on the lyrics of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers," by vera2, online Feb 1, 2004.
On the second list but not the first is this quiz: Tom Petty (#187407), "Here's a fun quiz for true Petty Heads!" by LeslieiZ, online August 5, 2004
It's the LeslieiZ quiz that prompted my inquiry.
Here are a bunch of things I noticed here:
- SaxMan4 and LeslieiZ BOTH have quizzes with the name "Tom Petty" in this category
- No one here - vera2, LeslieiZ, SaxMan4, me - is a gold member
- all of these quizzes have been online for at least five months
It looks to me like there is some kind of an odd bug in the system. Maybe the quizzes with duplicate names is part of the problem? I am hoping that the above might be enough to prompt an investigation and a fix.
