When you go to the Quiz Lists home can there be Green Ticks displayed next the ones you've done Please cause it's real confusing when you go to a Quiz List and press claim & discover you have already claim that quiz list.

A green tick would help a lot!

Several other things I've noticed:

1) The lists are out of order numerically and with no green tick
it turns into a scavenger hunt for me. I keep a notebook which
gives me a clue as to which page a list could be on.

2) Is there a limit on the number of quizzes in a list? Some lists
are 5 or 10 quizzes which is fine. A few lists are longer for a
reason like A to Z on a specific subject. But there are some
lists with 45 quizzes. Really? I've done 33 of the 45 so far, by
the way. But 45?

3) I've noticed on several of the lists I've completed that several
days or weeks after completion additional quizzes have been added.
How does that work? I've already got the trophy but the list is
alive and breathing again.

4) Finally, I like quiz lists. Good idea. I've earned 124 trophies so
far. But like most new things, sanding and buffing takes off the
rough edges and makes it shine.

Lists are made for various reasons, and helping people get Quiz List trophies is just one of the reasons.

The ability to make lists happened quite some time before any badges or trophies appeared, and before there was even any talk of an eventual badge. So most if not all of the earlier lists were not made with badge hunting in mind, but for ease in finding related quizzes, or for other reasons, as various and sundry as the list makers themselves.

Yes, this is on the to-do list and I'm working on that page today. It will be done today.

This is likely to happen quite often. I have lists for a few ongoing series of quizzes, in particular for commissions in the author lounge, to which I will be adding next time I write a qualifying quiz.

Terry has said, somewhere in this thread, that this doesn't affect anyone who's claimed the list. Once it's claimed, it stays claimed.

In reference to my previous post. I wasn't complaining. I like quiz lists and would play them without trophies. It's a good way to find my favorite quizzes by my favorite authors all in one place! Hats off to Terry and crew.

1a. I just added checkmarks for GMs, in line with quizzes.

1b. Lists are listed by date online. So, the order of quizzes listed should never change.

2. Quiz lists can be of any size. They can be used for trophy hunting, organizing quizzes, or both.

3. What do you mean "the quiz list is alive and breathing again"? Once you have credit, you always have credit.

Went to check out the new green ticks and couldn't find the filter list on the left. Then found the drop down box for filtering.

It's all beautiful, Terry, thank you!

Terry, is it possible to have the pages listed at the bottom, as well as at the top, so we don't have to scroll back up to view the next page?

I will say again: I don't care about the credit. My favorite quizzes are Brain Teasers. There are several authors who have created quiz lists with Brain Teasers only or lists with several Brain Teasers in them. So how do I find out a quiz was added to a list I thought completed? I'll just keep my notebook with "List 741, 11/20" or "List 742, 5/5 DONE". Maybe once a month I'll update my list and discover another Brain Teaser quiz or something else that interests me that day. The lists are fun!

I claimed my 100th quiz list yesterday but still haven't been awarded the badge. Is there something else I need to do?

^ Your profile shows that you've completed 98. Did you forget to claim a couple of them?

Interesting! I never thought to look there. When I go to the Quiz Lists page it says I've claimed 100. I wonder where the disparity comes from. I'll try adding a couple more. Thanks so much for your input.

It worked. And the Quiz Lists page now credits me with having claimed 102 lists!

Terry-- is there a way to add in a thing where we can see what players have completed each quiz list and collected their trophies? Like if I went into Quiz List X I could also see who finished it and when.

I was thinking something similar to Kyle's request, although primarily I'm curious how many people have completed the quiz lists I created.

When I am on a quiz list, there is an option to Pin it. I love this feature except I cannot figure out where they are pinned to. Am I missing something?

Pinned lists and pinned challenges for badges show up on the top left of your screen about a quarter of the way down underneath the Today section.

Terry, thank you very much for the option to pin quiz lists. Now I have to find all those lists I've "lost" that I only to finish one or two quizzes on smile.

That assumes you have the Standard or Compact layouts selected for your Homepage.

If you have selected Daily & Hourly Game Version or New Quiz Central, then you won't see Pinned Items on the Homepage

Can it be made that we can have them on that version or have them on the set list main page?
