A couple of us have been out on vacation and the rest of us have been gearing up for the Community Quiz launch, when we weren't discussing a couple of serious editing issues.

Just be patient. We got going pretty quickly there for a while and now you all expect quizzes to get launched in a day!

Here's a statistic for you:
Quizzes launched in last 120 days: 8,012
Average wait time in queue: 26.9 hours

That's about 2000 quizzes per month...with 17 editors. I think that's pretty darn good!

I think all of you do an outstanding job, and thanks for editing my quizzes.

The one thing I have noticed though is the alarming rate the Editors seem to fly through the quizzes at the weekend. Definetly had their Weetabix that day. SO i think a few people might presume that always happens but i remember times when it would take all week for one of my quizzes to go live.
Also the fact there has been a community quiz launch will add to the number of quizzes.

Everyone should thank the Editors,
so i will start.

Thank you Editors for all the continued effort

Question: did the community quizzes take precedence over the regular ones or are they all 1st come 1st serve?

Just curious.

I was wondering the same thing.

Pretty much the opposite, as far as I can gather - the Challenge quizzes were launched by the authors and 'collected' on one side as they were checked, until they were all ready, so they could all be released together.

So strictly speaking, they were left on one side while others went through!

The only difference is that now they're all ready they're being launched in a group.

I'd have to agree with Berylm. I launched my community game 24 hours ago, and it as of my typing this,...stands # 101 in line. I believe they are taking them in order, and setting the community ones aside for a mass release.

My 5 cents worth,...can't buy a thing with only 2 now-a-days,

Here's a true fact for you, Sploofinator:

Googling "Purina Editor Chow" brings up one hit!

Things are looking a bit weird now, though - about half of the Challenge quizzes were released pretty much together about two hours ago - but nothing's been released since! I know they haven't all been released because mine hasn't, even if there weren't 30-odd announced in the 'I've launched mine' thread and only about 15 launched so far ...

Does anyone know what's going on now?

I started to ask the same thing...until I read the chat message "The SEPTEMBER QUIZ CHALLENGE launch has started" which explains what is being done.

Kaufman, you made me do a spit take all over my computer screen!

And FYI, without the quotes I got 25,700 google hits!
