I've also had a quiz or two not work at all... Because I did not realize the category had recently closed. So I had to rewrite it completely. I much prefer category changes than having to scrap the entire quiz. smile

And I agree with what has been said, your quizzes are very good, zippo. I look forward to more submissions from you.

I write my quiz and the correction notes help to refine my quiz. It's great, I try to solve quickly to adjust my quiz, the players in FT are fantastic and know about many topics.

I want write my second quiz about the New Year.

Thank you.

I think "smoothly" is a little optimistic, but I will plod on

Sometimes when I have only a few minutes I might scan a few quizzes to see if there are any that can be easily dealt with, without taking a lot of time. If a quiz is going to take more time than I have at that moment then I will back out.
Now this doesn't necessarily mean that the quiz requiring more time is in worse shape than the one requiring little time, the reverse could actually be true as well!

With the holidays coming up, perhaps bribes could turn into 'Well I was going to tell Santa to bring you this, but he only brings things to kids who help write quizzes.'

Chocolate. Always chocolate.

Chocolate is ALWAYS the answer. Don't give it to the child, though. Eat it yourself!

It worked!!!

My quiz using the word "What" and in the "Manga" section went online an hour ago.

Three people have played it, none have scored ten and none of them have rated it. Time to get my daughter up methinks.

More waiting :|

I had written a quiz to bring my total up to ten (I got side tracked and wrote another quiz when I found it hard going) and it suited my next task, so was able to submit within an hour or so of reaching the level.

A week later I got a correction notice. It may have been less, but the notice did not appear in my Notes and I found it by accident when I looked at the "AinA" page. I have made the changes needed and have been waiting nearly a week again.

There are obviously far too many people submitting quizzes at the moment!

Patience! Your quiz is in the queue - it will be attended to; you just have to give it time. I'd rather have longer queues if it means more quizzes coming onto the site. smile
