Is there any way editors can remove comments from kerblunks etc. I find some comments to be ever so slightly annoying and in some cases hurtful. I don't just mean my own quizzes. Comments on other peoples are less than friendly.

David, I'm sure there was a thread somewhere where the editors advised to send in a support ticket if there were comments that gave away quiz answers or were offensive.

David, editors can and usually will if you submit as support ticket giving specific information as to which quiz. Support tickets are submitted by clicking on "Help" at the bottom of the page not by using the green bug thingy-Linda

David - We will absolutely remove any comment you wish. Just tell us the name of the quiz (we'll probably be able to guess at the comment). I am continually removing comments as I take quizzes - they either divulge too much information about what is in the quiz, or are just plain mean. Just send in that support ticket.

Sploofinder - does that mean editors remove comments they know are the wrong kind of comments even without anyone else/writer requesting it?

Well, I cannot answer for anyone else, but I sure do. If I take a quiz, and notice that there is a comment that's been left calling the author a moron or worse - out it goes. If it gives information about one of the answers, it also goes out. But, of course, that's only if I happen to take that quiz.

It's a good idea for authors to be observant about messages left on quizzes, and let us know if they want something removed - using a Support Ticket.

Is there any way of having a message telling us we have a new comment on a quiz? If the quiz taker does not send the comment via messaging, we have no way of knowing if we have a new comment.

I had a nasty comment also. The player was fairly new and couldn't distinguish a "cheeky " Kerplunk from hard-core trivia. I sent a comment back to that player and told him to lighten up and I hoped that the rest of his day went better. He reconsidered, and wrote back saying he was having a bad day....Some folks get way toooo serious.

Keith, believe your suggestion about not having comments show was something that was something that was supposed to happen long ago-guessing that although editors can do it individually would take Justin tom implement the blanket policy so there you go-sure I will be corrected if I misspoke-Linda

I am english Keith I can read sarcasm just as easy as I can hear it. Now there is nothing wrong with negative criticism, cruel use of language and ignorant comments are something else though.

I have just responded to a couple of Support Tickets on this very topic.

Offensive remarks have been removed, and the perpetrators of those remarks have been contacted.

Please THINK before you respond to a quiz or Ker-Blunk you have played.
Ask yourself if your comment is ....

There is no need to be abusive if you dispute any of the quiz's questions/answers, or any other aspect of another person's work.

If you have an issue with the accuracy of a quiz's facts, spelling or anything else: PM that quiz author privately in a civilized manner.

If you wish to leave a general comment, such as conveying your enjoyment of the work, or that you found it tested your knowledge, please feel free to do so on the public list.

If you see a remark that gives away answers to the quiz, or if that remark is offensive to you in ANY way, please do not hesitate to contact the editors immediately via a Support Ticket. Many thanks to those members who have already alerted us to abusive or inappropriate remarks.

Support Tickets can be accessed by clicking on "HELP" at either the top or the bottom of the page.

I'm glad to learn that any of us can report abusive comments - not just the author. That's good information to have.

The quiz or Ker-Blunk does not have to be your work for you to report any comment you find offensive, abusive inappropriate or disclosing quiz content.

Anyone can report!!

(Thanks, Jank)

Can I add comments of fake praise to my own quizzes please?
I promise that any flattery I heap upon myself will be entirely insincere and it won't exactly flout the 'no self-promotion' rule if the comments can only be read by someone who was going to take the quiz anyway...

Just as soon as you figger out how to take your own quiz, and post your own comments, I'm sure we can all stand back and admire your handiwork, Martin!

Bev, You can take your own quiz if you quit and rejoin as then you become a whole different person-bit costly though LOL Linda
