Something wierd hapenned to my quizzes. Mysteriously, about half of them have suddenly been labled new and they are unrated. This is strange because they are definitly not new and have been rated for some time.

I noticed the exact same thing too! There must be a glitch or something. Can anyone clear this up?

The same thing has happened to three of my quizzes. All three of them had the average rating that quizzes get when they haven't been played often enough to get an accurate rating. So Terry has probably been playing with that algorithm...


Edited to fix a typo.

This is what happens every week when the ratings get updated, but it lasts only a short while (I'm guessing around half an hour).

This time, however, the system seems to have gotten stuck somewhere in the process, and quizzes below a certain rating (around 4.00) have not been ranked and are all marked "New".

Yes I saw that myself, was hoping no one would panic. I'm going to assume it's Terry revising something.

It was funny to see quizzes with five hundred people having taken them being rated new.

Same here. 14 of my 61 quizzes appear as 'new', though they had ranks yesterday. As far as I can tell, all the higher rated quizzes have been ranked - and 'sunglassed', if in the top 5,000. In my case the problem seems to start around 22,500 or thereabouts.

Same here. My nine 'worst' quizzes (also starting around the 22,000 mark) are all showing up as 'new'.

me too.. 5 of my 11 quizzes that are online are marked as new, but they all have difficulties and the right number of times played. Weird is right, but I'm sure all will be back to normal soon enough.
