Do you like it if someone points out an error on one of your quizzes (as long as it's in a polite and friendly way, of course)?
Or do you think it's offensive?

I would really rather someone let me know if I have made an error.

Hi There .... Yes please let me know if I have made any errors on any of my quizzes.
Any feedback on any quizzes is also much appreciated, I feel it is simply good manners to tell a quizmaster if you feel there quiz has been good, after all they have taken the time and effort to devise the quiz.

Definitely would want to know if I made an error! I also appreciate feedback and like giving feedback to people who have made awesome quizzes.

As long as someone is tactful, then its a plus to have your errors mentioned. It gives you great insight for future quiz writing. Look at it like this too, if someone takes the time to email you over a SIMPLE typo, then they are VERY bored, lol. We all make mistakes.

Hi, I am human and make errors and tactful critiscism of mistakes on content or typo errors are well received by me. As some of you have found out already.

No problem as long as the one correcting me is themselves correct. Some answers are regionally based or tied to strong area oral tradition. Before assuming an answer is wrong, look it up and be sure. Unless, of course, it's my speeling, then you are most certainly right. My speeling (

If it's a major error, I'll be happy about someone letting me know. I'm the only that knows how much of a complete idiot I am. LOL If it's a little spelling error, I think it's a little ridiculous that someone will take the time to let me know I had a typo. Picky Picky.

I want my quizzes to be 100% accurate. If (averts eyes) I make an error, I hope someone will inform me. Prior to the ability to re-edit quizzes, and error in a posted quiz bugged the dickens out of me because I couldn't fix it. Now, I fix them ASAP. And, if I find an error, I always inform the person politely, and have never gotten anything except polite respnses/thank yous.

I always love getting feedback about my quizzes, including if an error has been found.

I love getting feedbacks from fellow Sploofus players...but I do get upset when they send me rude messages.

I hope to be notified when I make a mistake.

For example, I mispelled Welsh. I was glad when someone pointed it out to me. Unfortunately, I cannot fix it, as it was in the quiz description which cannot be changed once the quiz is activated, or so it seems.

When I make a mistake, which has been known to happen more than once, I would appreciate if you let know, and I will fix it. It kinda grates tho' when another player says you are wrong when you are right.

I definately appreciate all feedback, as long as it is given in a courteous manner. I try very hard to verify the answers to my quizzes, but I have been corrected before. It has always been done in a kind manner. I have sent messages to a couple of people when I have noticed an incorrect answer. I still rate them well based on the content of their quiz, and for their effort. I also let people know when I really enjoy their quizzes as well. Even if the level of difficulty is low, I always applaud people for coming up with a neat concept.

I always appreciate a kind word or correction.

I have to say, though, that when I first started sploofusing I sent lots messages to folks so that they could correct some mistakes I found, but I rarely ever got a positive reply. One person even replied with a simple "Yeah, well, nobody's perfect" and ignored me. Needless to say, it didn't encourage me to offer my help to many others...

Now I try to limit my messages to those instances where the outcome of the quiz is being obviously affected and the author is receiving lower ratings because of it. Some people take it too personally to bother with it otherwise.

But, if you see a mistake in one of my quizzes, please let me know about it!

We are all human, and all of us make mistakes. Assuming we are all adult enough, we should be able to take some constuctive critism about these mistakes and work to change them. I have only been alerted to one mistake in my few quizzes authored, and changed it immediately. I was very glad to have the error brought to my attention to save other people's scores, as well as my quiz rating! I say if you see a mistake (and I'm talking answer error, not spelling error) point it out in a positive manner and quiz authors should be happy to receive your feedback~ we're all fellow Sploofusers, let's all be friends!

Well, I hope people will correct me - for I don't hesitate to mention errors to others - ever so politely, I hope!
No one has objected as yet.
Indeed, numerous enjoyable discussions have arisen out of such points.

Hello all-
Though I have not written many quizzes I would want to know if any of them have errors (aside from my chronically poor grammar!). I know the couple errors in my descriptions I cannot change really irk me. I do spend a lot of time writing the quizzes I have posted -- though I am guilty of throwing an easy one or two out there--and appreciate any constructive or positive feedback.

How ironic is it that I just sent you an e mail about correcting my error after you had pointed it out to me, and the next thing I did was open up chat and go right to this forum! I am grateful that you pointed out my error, because my error was one that I have encountered on other quizzes, when the correct answer is listed twice as a choice. Drives me crazy when I see that, and I went and did it without even realizing. So, yes, I am all for someone pointing out my errors!!!

Yes I appreciate it when I have made a mistake and someone points it out. It is very helpful. I sometimes tell authors about errors, but not always. I always listen to anyone who has a comment about one of my quizzes. It is a little bit touchy though, wondering if you should or should not say something.

Id prefer someone let me know about an error (politely of course!), so that it can be corrected before too many people take the quiz and get secretly annoyed at me lol

I prefer for someone to let me know if ive made a mistake that way i can go in edit it, that way it doesnt confuse the person who is taking the quiz~~~Dayna

Tracy, I prefer to use the method of asking a couple of friends, that usually take most of my quizzes anyway to let me know if I have made an error. It really depends on who is notifing you, IMO. You, I beleive have pointed things out to me before. Because I respect you I hope you will do so in the future.

I absolutely want to know if I made an error, I just hope it is mentioned politely. Hey, I'm not perfect! At least if I'm notified I can go back and edit it.
