Anyone heard from some of the folks who seemed to have dropped off the planet here lately? Some names I haven't seen as quiz authors in a LOOOOONG time.... just curious....

They may have become editors.
I was wondering the same thing.

There are several that have gone MIA on fact, when I started back in 2004 nearly all of those with the exception of a few are no longer around..

I guessed they became editors as well since they seem to still do tqod, etc.

I don't know if you include me in that group, but I have been VERY busy lately....

I have done a couple of quizzes in the last few weeks.

Some people do burn out, though. Or, their significant others say "enough is enough."

FYI - Editors still write lots of quizzes, and take lots of them (when one of us misses an editing item, another of us is sure to see it while taking the quiz and get it taken care of!).

FYI 2 - we are not allowed to edit our own quizzes...they sit in the queue until some other editor pulls them up just like everyone else's.

Specifically, I had wondered where Kimmie, Philkon, and Geniuswaitress were... used to be their names were all over the "Trivia Quiz" page, with "new" out beside them... haven't seen much of any of them lately...

Hi Joanne:
Thank you for thinking of me. I'm still here and poking around most days but I'm too tired to focus on Word definitions. It's summer and the garden calls. It will take me most of the winter to get the dirt out of the pores in my hands, and for the poison ivy to clear up, but the garden is looking beautiful. I look forward to Word Rounding it again when the weather is less friendly.

Glad to hear from you Diane. Have a great summer.

I heard my name! I guess more than anything I just suffered from quiz burnout. I churned out a crapload there for a while. I'm only online at work, so I take my TQOTDs, a few quizzes, and take lame stabs at word puzzles. By the way, coincidentally I DO have a new quiz up. Look for it. If a lot of people take it, maybe I'll start writing more again!
Oh, and speaking of missing people, I miss Jedley.

Jedley took one of my quizzes a while back so he could send me a message saying that his gold had expired and he didn't he's still playing but not CHATTING!

I also am missing Jedley. I got the same message from him - about not renewing. I sure hope he is reconsidering.
