I'm not sure if this is the proper place to suggest/request a new subcateogry.....but here goes.

In "Literature", "Contemporary Literature and Fiction", quite a few modern authors are listed as sub-categories. Would it be possible to add Clive Cussler to the list? He has written many books, and I'm working on the first in a series of four quizzes on one of his newest.

If there is no Cussler sub-category, what category should I list this quiz in?

Thanks for your help with my "newbie" questions!

Yay.. another Cussler fan! I love his books and will look forward to playing your quizzes.

Sub-categories are usually created when there are a few quizzes on that topic. At this stage, the appropriate place would be 'Authors A-C'.

Yep, that's right. Once we have a few more Cussler quizzes (there is one already online) we will create a category. The place to put your quiz is "C" which is a subcategory of Authors A - C.

But why there is category "Periodic table" in Sci/Tech which has only one quiz?

Because sometimes quizzes are taken offline. There were probably more quizzes about the Periodic Table when the subcat was created, but they're not online anymore.

I am looking in this category for more than 2 months but only 1 quiz. I think that there were no quizzes.

Most of the quizzes on the Periodic Table were extremely poor, and have been taken offline over the years. It's also a closed category (due to extremely poor and boring quizzes being submitted to it,) which is why you don't se any quizzes going into it.

You may have kept an eye on the subcat for two months, but Quizzyland is over 5 years old! So many things have happened before you joined, I think it's rather offensive to just say you think the subcat was created for no reason.

I agree with you and Sue, Leau. I can remember the days of when Seasonal was a main category and Video Games was a sub-category of Hobbies. There have also been several editors "resign" and new editors take over. I've been a QL member for about four years, but didn't register here until 2003, and have enjoyed it! There are far more sub-categories now versus what there was when I joined, mainly because there are almost 60,000 quizzes online; there were less than 20,000 when I joined. Besides, correct me if I am wrong, but aren't there several subcategories with only one quiz?
