Does anybody else see what I am seeing? A 50 question quiz that you cannot play has just come in. You cannot play it, since it doesn't exist, but it is there. It isn't on the profile of the author, and there is a whole category of them I never knew about. What is going on? Anybody else see this phenomenon?

Those quizzes are the question packs that are for sale on the website.

Terry, can you get the 'new quizzes' list to exclude the quizzes from this category, please?

I forgot to mention...

Why is it allowing me to write a quiz in the category? I clicked "build quiz" just to see, and it let me. I didn't go any farther, but I noticed it could go up to 500 questions. Am I allowed to make a quiz in this bizarre category? I am quite confused, as you can probably tell. :-D lol.

No, you should not have the ability to write a quiz int hat category. Even if you did, no one would see it to edit it.

That would be a tough Early Bird to get. You'd probably need more than 30 minutes just to finish that quiz!

lol, I was looking forward to making a 500 question quiz. ;-) lol. A LOT of time and work, though, for the author AND the editors... Big mess.

But a lot of points, 5,000 points for one quiz! lol.

I'd rather fifty individual quizzes. I can imagine how long it took ladymacb to create the set. It's not everyday we get one of those and they take a fair bit of time to edit and place online.

Let's see... I started it when I was at my previous job.. I've been at the current one for over 4 years and I started it in the summer... so about 5 years it took me?
