When will my quiz be ranked?

A quiz is ranked when the following requirements are met:

The quiz has been played by at least 30 players.
At least 20 players have given the quiz a "1 to 5" rating.
The ratings have been made by different people, on different IP addresses. This is to stop players from creating multiple accounts and rating their own quizzes.
Rankings occur once per week.


Is this right still?

Plus the 3-4 weeks waiting time.

This is actually the first time (that I remember) seeing the 30 players playing requirement. But it would be very rare to get 20 ratings without at least 30 players playing anyway.

If there are 30 players playing, typically, 10 of them are actual members, and 20 are guests, so if something says "300 plays" on a quiz, it was played 100 times by scoring members, so I would imagine it's actually impossible to have 30 plays and 20 ratings...

Also, the rating is from Very Poor to Excellent rather than 1 to 5.

"Very Poor" is essentially a "1", and "Excellent" is equivalent of a "5" rating.

They are the same thing really:

1 = Very Poor
2 = Poor
3 = Average
4 = Good
5 = Excellent


Edited to add: Salami, as ever, is quicker than me!
