The Crossword Editors, Admin, and Terry have been discussing the eligibility requirements for crossword creation since it has been recently brought up for discussion in another thread.
You are still required to create several quizzes before being allowed to create crosswords, but you should find the restrictions relaxed a bit. The same reasons apply: we want to know you can follow directions and work well with editors before being allowed to create a crossword puzzle. However, you should find that you'll be allowed to create crosswords sooner.
We cannot tell you when, exactly, you will be allowed to create them - you will still have to go click that button to see if you've been given permission to do so. This will vary from person to person, so if you've written a few quizzes that have gone online with little or no editing and you want to create a crossword, just go check and see if you are able.
