Recently, the editors are being very swift. I aim to have a quiz up every day. I write a quiz and check that it is, say, 23 on the list. Within twenty minutes it has gone live, with only three other quizzes at the same time.

What have other authors experienced? Who are those authors whose quizzes are languishing in the list?

Dear editors, this is not a criticism. Just wondering who the unfortunate authors are and why.

Can't answer your question 100%, but I have had to make corrections to quizzes. That throws my quiz into a "holding pattern," so to speak.

My quiz could not be launched until I received an e-mail from an editor, made the requested corrections and resubmitted it. My quiz then went back to the same editor who sent it to me. Depending on the time of day when I resubmitted the quiz, it might be a day or so before that editor would get back to me or get the quiz launched..

So those people whose quizzes didn't get launched are probably needing to make corrections or changes to their quizzes and yours didn't. Guess that was the short answer I could have given you!

The number of quizzes ahead of yours not only reflects those just submitted but includes all of those that have been returned. This means those that we have editted and have asked the authors to make corrections are included in that number. It is not unusual for me to return a quiz and not hear from the author for a week or two. The number can be rather misleading, but rest assured we cannot "jump over" any quizzes in favor of another. They are all edited in the order they are received. We can't always edit quizzes quite as quickly as we have recently but we strive our hardest to get them out in a timely fashion.
