My Joy Division quiz has been played many, many times by guests over the past few days (from looking at recent scores), but the play count has been stuck at 111 for the past few days. So are plays only counted for registered members or something?

Are you sure? I went and looked at one of my quizzes that went online recently, and it says 108 plays. But when you go to scores and see the registered members scores, there are only 36. So the 108 is counting guest scores too, no?

I was under the impression that while it is only plays by members that are counted, Terry has a program in place to give credit for estimated plays by guests.
It seems to me that for every member who plays a game, the count goes up by three, because it averages out that way (two guests play a quiz for every member who plays it).
