YOUR BEST EASNING/MOST POPULAR QUIZ

It has been a while since we talked about which of our quizzes have earned the most points and achieved the highest number of takers.

My "Sex Acts" quiz has earned 439,430 points. That is my highest points total for any quiz.

There has always been discussion about why the number of takers on a quiz's front page can vary from the total when you view it on the list of all of your quizzes. The guesses are people who don't finish a quiz, of perhaps people who do not rate the quiz are not counted on the front page total.

My "Foods People Hate" quiz has recorded 2081 takers on my list of quizzes.

That is a pickle. I would say the best of your best from the best of your best.

LOL you are getting frustrated, Steve, your typing is beginning to resemble mine or perhaps your title of this thread was another "subtle" that I didn't get - Linda

Hmmmmmmmmm....uhhhhhhhh Nope. I can't come up with any plausible excuse as to why I might have done that on purpose. I guess I gotta own up to the fact my typing skills suck.

Nearly 3/4 million points. Wowzers! Beat it is not rated a difficulty of 1 like my Food quiz.

Think it was my Heidi self that wrote "Pretty Woman - the Movie" If I remember correctly that had the most takers but difficulty rating pretty low. Since that "self" no longer exists impossible to tell how many points that "self" received from it,,, SIGH... Linda

Difficulty on "Stupid Things " is 5 (7) so points piled up in a hurry.

I dont spend much time here any more and havent done a quiz for a long time. I let my membership lapse even after Lodi gave me a free gold membership.

My life has changed and I think possibly so have I. This group seems to consider me ancient so . . . (your time will come!)

Sploofus isnt the same to me as it was when there were a mere 10,000 of us!

There is some disp[arity on points earned because in July 2006 if I remember right the rules changed on how many points you got for solving a quiz --based on difficulty ratio; and the number of points you got for setting a quiz also went up.
Previously the first was limited to 100 points; and the second was simply rating x number taken..... if I remember right.
Unluckily for me that meant my
'Test your UIQ -- the Un-Intelligence Quiz!' which has 1219 takers and was introduced in June has earned a 'mere' 456,755 points.
I can only count my lucky stars that a quiz I wrote in my first month has done so well; beginners luck!
Unluckily for me the success of this quiz was what really hooked me on the site!!

Gee, Barry, believe Steve was trying to "lighten things up" here but you have to make it complicated by citing disparity in points or some such thing. I have come to the conclusion that is "simply who you are" and how your mind works so carry on...Linda .

Wow - I haven't written a quiz in ages, it seems. My "most taken" quiz was not my "highest earning" quiz cause it was so easy.
And, my numbers cannot come close to yours, Steve.

Most Taken - Toys in the Hall of Fame - Remember These? 1184 Takers
Most Points - 1950s Sitcom Occupations - 184,480 points.

Now someday if I really can stop working - I retired 8 years ago, and now have more jobs than I ever did when I was working - maybe I can write some of those high scoring guys.

Barry. I think what you are saying did affect total points for quizzes, because the change raised what you could earn. So quizzes written before the change would never catch up with a quiz written after the change with the same number of takers. I also think changes in a quiz's difficulty rating affects overall points. A quiz that starts out as a 3, then changes to a 4 after 50 takers, and then continues on to 75 takers will have a different amount of total points than a quiz that starts out as a 4 and stays a 4 all the way.

For total takers, I know of no other possible solution than the one I offered before...at least no one else has stated one.

There's an echo in here.
Seriously, is this in a year, or five years or total ever?

The short answer is About Colas and Pop. Earnings 105,713, 227 takers.

Next in quizzes far below that, 57,936 Baseball. Then Banned Books, and About Jim Carrey.

I SERIOUSLY was curious what the running tab was on these points. BZZZZ wrong answer.

I heard since June on one. That's stellar!
