The date that I launch a quiz appears on all of my launched quizzes, even though the quiz itself may not go live for 2-4 days. At the risk of folks reading this and deciding to never take another of my quizzes because I appear pushy here, I will lay out my complaint. When/If a quiz reaches the Top 25, it stays on based on the launch date, not the date it actually went live and becomes available to take. Since there is a time limit of 10 days from the date on the quiz that the quiz can remain on T25, this gives an unfair advantage to quizzes launched when there is not a long queue [I learned how to spell that word on my vacation to England]. Can the date on each quiz be changed from the launch date to the actual date it goes live?

Seems reasonable to me ... but is there ever a time when there is not a long queue?

I just can't help sharing this's a new statistic that Justin posted in the Editor's Lounge:

Quizzes launched in last 14 days: 941
Average wait time in queue: 47.3 hours

That's almost 1000 quizzes launched in only two weeks time! I think that's pretty impressive!

Our membership is increasing daily, therefore more quizzes are being written.

Sploofus is VERY popular!

I agree that the turnaround time is impressive! WTG, Editors! Sorry ... I didn't mean to imply in my previous post that Editors weren't doing a fabulous job! I meant to say that we are always getting large numbers of quizzes all the time!

I was not questioning the turnaround time in my post, just the date that is put on the quizzes when they go live.

I agree. I have noticed the same thing. If you are lucky enough to get a quiz up in the Top 25, it cuts about 2 days off its visibility time. But, since we are all the same, it really doesn't matter.
