I came across quizzical's profile and noted some oddities. He/she registered Mar 20.01, was last seen on the same day and yet he/she managed to accumulate over 213,000 points, is at level 29, and created over 100 quizzes (last one Jan 2oo2).

But the main reason I chose to bring this to your attention is because it seems as though many of his/her quiz questions are not supplemented with any extra info. I saw a couple of questions by this person in todays Daily Quiz. Just curious how these unaugmented quizzes passed inspection.

In the early day, information was not required. You will come across a lot of older quizzes with absolutely nothing at all, and others with a snip of opinion or a joke. These would not be accepted today, but the old ones are still there, and do surface in games.

That 'last seen' anomaly I cannot address. Quizzical has certainly not been writing anything for a long time, quite possibly since 2002.

If memory serves, we started requiring info for all questions some time around late 2003, early 2004. Except for Brain Teasers, they were allowed to go online without info for a few more years.

Just to add, these old quizzes were grandfathered, so there is no need to send a correction note if that was something you were considering.
