QUIZ APPROVAL IS PRETTY FAST NOW, AND THE FUN IS RETURNING

No one enjoyed the ban on quiz writing, or the slow uptake on getting quizzes approved after quiz writing return. But if we think we had it bad, imagine the headaches and heartburn for the adminstrators. I can imagine that these other major sites were threatening legal action from the way things went down. Sploofus figuratively caught the Flu and was out of commision for a few days and is now back on its feet. On the other hand, it could have been more serious, and Sploofus could have up and died. Then where would we be? I have seriously inspected all of the major trivia sites I could find, and Sploofus is the best one overall. I don't know how a couple of the others keep running with the unfriendly system and incessant advertising.

Quizzes are getting approved pretty quick, now. The last one I sent up was approved and running less than a couple hours later. So far, I have had one quiz rejected. I can understand the rationale, which was polite and helpful. I re-edited the quiz and resubmitted it. It was approved and running shortly thereafter.

I imagine the editors are still getting their balance and sorting things out. It is probably quite challenging to them. I was an editor at General Motors for 5 years, and it is a very rewarding job, but loaded with opportunities for headaches, heartburn and kicks in the butt.

That all said, I think the fun is back. It is a little more mature fun than the childlike fun from when we were operating in the "world without rules" of earlier sploofus. But I see that as a challenge to me, as a quiz writer, to create better quizzes.

(Jumping off soapbox, now. Taste of soap is getting to me)

Good post (from a peacemaker)

I am pleased with the new quiz approval system. And very thrilled to have lots of new quizzes to take!

I'm looking forward to more positive changes, especially the Music Rounds!

I agree. I was being pretty vocal about my disappointment that so many people were being penalized for what a few may have done. I am pleased to say now, that Sploofus has handled this with much more speed than I was expecting. The system also seems to be running very smoothly now. This is gratifying!

Yep - I was sounding off too, originally.
But, as above, it seems to have been sorted very well, in fact.
Maybe just a bit more info in advance, in future, Sploofus, so we can be more aware of reasons?
