Rank: 7
Ratings: 45
Good & Excellents: 43 (96%)
Exc: 24 (53%), Good: 19 (42%)

But I agree with supersal! I like this quiz fine, but there are others that I personally think are better. I don't seem to get a vote, though. :-)

Just out of interest, does anyone know what the number 1 quiz is? Is there any way to find out each week?

My quiz "Clubbing around the World" has been #1 for a couple of weeks by now.
I certainly don't need to mention how proud of it I am! :-)

I am really glad to see how many people enjoy my quizzes, especially because they are all tough and decidedly international.
I invested several weeks of work in each of them, although I am a professional writer. But, as we all know: quiz writing is a serious matter indeed! :-)

"Clubbing around the World"
Rank: 1
Ratings: 29
Good & Excellents: 27 (93%)
Exc: 23 (79%), Good: 4 (14%)

Do anyone know what is the minimum percentage needed to get in the top 10,000 and the sunglasses club?

It changes every week, of course, and the bar will probably just keep getting higher, but his should give you some idea:

Quiz rated 8365:
Ratings: 558
Good & Excellents: 385 (69%)
Exc: 146 (26%), Good: 239 (43%)

Quiz rated 10,573:
Ratings: 24
Good & Excellents: 14 (58%)
Exc: 6 (25%), Good: 8 (33%)

Of course, these stats do not take into account those ratings below "Good"; if you have a big chunk of "Very Poors", that will drag you down even if your Good & Excellent % is high.

Doesn't the number of sunglasses just expand as more quizzes fill the necessary conditions of having at least 20 ratings and being online for 3-4 weeks?

Nope. The number of sunnies stays at 10,000. Ergo, the competition intensifies to make better quizzes.

Rise to the challenge, o ye writers! Throw down the gauntlet at fate. From the heart of Hell itself do you stab at the mediocre!

Chances are that at some point in the future, Terry will expand the number of sunglass quizzes - make it the top 12,000, for example. Not any time soon, though - it was raised fairly recently.

At present my highest ranked quiz is 'Oor Wullie - Scotland's Favourite Boy', ranked at 95, though it did reach 45.
The current statistics are :-
Rank: 95
Ratings: 22
Good & Excellents: 20 (91%)
Exc: 10 (45%), Good: 10 (45%)

I've had two other quizzes make it to around 45 in the ranking, and presently have one on Charles de Gaulle, which has 94% Goods and Excellents, but has only been rated 17 times, despite having 102 plays.
I recall having seen very poor quizzes, with no additional interesting information and several errors, making it to the sunglasses, but hopefully these have now moved down.
