WHAT DO THE EDITORS CHECK FOR?

I'm just curious because I have seen some quizzes that don't seem to be in the right category and was wondering if this was an area that they checked.

Erm, I am not sure about whether this is checked or not, may Sploofus could come and answer this one.

I think the editors just check content and stuff, I dont know if they are in charge of organizing where the quizzes go.

I know some have come back asking what country they were from, or wanting the name of a country added. I don't know about catagories.

Jenn,
I'm POSITIVE they don't check the category. I've taken SO many "Friends" quizzes in Movies A-?, and I'm pretty sure that Friends reunion movie is quite a few years away.

I imagine plagiarisim is the number 1 concern.

I just noticed a bunch of Elvis quizzes in history. Now, I know history means in the past, but I'm thinkin' that the real reason it is in that category is to have a longer time on "the front page" as music is a much more popular cat. for quiz writers. Just guessing, of course.

The quizzes you refer to regarding Elvis are actually under the History Historical People category.
Now correct me if I am wrong, but is it not the case that Elvis is indeed the most memorable and probably most famous Rock and Roll singer in history ???
Therefore I rest my case ;o)

Hey muse (and you know I like your quizzes), I might buy that explanation if the quizzes weren't on song titles. Song titles = historical people?
It's a bit of a stretch when there's clearly a better category.

Okay.. It seems some disagree with my choice of category.
Being a reasonable guy, I have amended the categories on all my Elvis quizzes to -
Music and Musicians - Artists A-G
I hope this brings a suitable resolve to the issues raised. Thanks Muse ;O)

But his name was Elvis Presley...shouldn't he be in Musicians M-R (or whatever section covers the letter P)?

And I have had quizzes that needed to be amended for a variety of resons: latest one was for using a slang abbreviation term instead of the actual word. I believe this is so the quiz will be fair to those for whom English is not a 1st language.

I just got a quiz rejected for "geographical location". The title is Legendary NFL Coaches. (Sports Category)
How many NFL's are there on this planet? Isn't obvious the NFL is in the United States?

Northumberland Freight Limited's coaches?

But hey - I've had numerous quizzes returned (rather than rejected) for alterations here and there. What's the prob?
