My quiz "Great Movie Quotes IV" [id: 32705] had been online since Mar 23, 2001. Was this just a software stumble? I just added some hints for difficult questions, but nothing substantial.

When you save the quiz, is there any red text that comes up on the next page? If you used HTML or things like that, the quiz is knocked offline.

My additions were just a few straight text hints. Nothing special.

Yeah, but was there something in the quiz that was already there?

Nope. Everything is just straight text.

When you resaved it, was there a red flag on any of the questions? If not, then in most cases, it should be fine. It could also be the age of the quiz as well. Since 2001, I know that there are more quality criteria to adhere to. Are any missing interesting information? That is now required of (pretty much) all quizzes.

If a quiz doesn't comply with the new quality requirements it isn't take offline automatically. It could be that there were multiple exclamation marks or too many full-stops in a row, which caused errors when you resaved the quiz. But if any of the things mentioned above were the case, you would have seen red messages on the screen that appears after you saved the quiz. If everything was green then that can't be the reason why your quiz came offline.

No red flags. All 25 questions have Interesting Info. I just completed adding hints to all seven of my movie quote quizzes and this only happened to number IV.

Most likely then, the quiz will be placed back online after it has been resubmitted. That will be up to the movie editors to decide, but if there are no red flags and all quality standards are met, there won't be any problems.
