I received a correction notice on one of my archived quizzes. How can I contact the editor to make a correction?

On the correction note itself state whether the correction is right or not and if it is put a note in the reply box asking an editor to make the correction. If it is not right state why it isn't. An editor will then automatically pick it up and deal with it at some time. You don't need to write any separate notes to any editor, it's all done via the correction note itself.

I also want to add that if the correction is simple (typo, etc.) you can just say in your response to the correction note "Yes the player is right, please effect the change". If the correction is more detailed, you need to be very specific about what changes you want made. E.g. "Please change incorrect answer 'X' to 'Y' and please change the third sentence in the info to read '............'".

Yes, what we really want to see, if any changes that are not perfectly obvious need to be made, is a sentence we can just copy and paste. Don't forget that if the answer changes, the interesting info might need to, too.

On my questions the II would change everytime I'd replace a wrong answer. I tend to explain briefly why the false options are indeed false.

I do the same, Jan. No wonder we were so good on the Race Team--we have similar styles!
