My "Dirty Dancing" quiz has changed since it was approved. Now there are two questions that are identical.. I can not delete one.. I have not done anything to this quiz since submitting it until just now, when I checked it due to a note sent to me.. and sure enough one question is now listed twice..i am very confused how this happened. It was not launched by the editor this way.. and I have not fooled with it.. so now what?

I think if you'll click on the name of the quiz in the "Your Quiz" section, it will take you to the quiz and the people who have taken it. At the top, if you click on questions, it will come up where it says "edit question" at the top of each question. I think if you'll click on "edit question", and when it brings up the form, just go through their and backspace everything on the extra quiz to delete it.

When I first started writing quizzes, I think that happened to me once. It usually happens when you click the submit button "twice" accidentally. It's easy to do sometimes, especially if you don't see your screen changing, and you click it again.

I hope this works for you.

I can do that I guess, but if you look at the first people that took the quiz the question was not on theirs twice, at somepoint today it seems to have doubled a question.. does that make sense.. like 100 or more people have taken it since going live... the earlist people only had one question of the question..

am i making any sense at all?

I have seen that happen before. I think the one time it happened to me, it was only a glitch. I took a quiz with 2 identical questions. I told the quiz author about it. Apparently, no one after me that took the same quiz got the duplicated question.

I have informed the other editors of this. We'll let you know what can be done.

That happened to me tonight on another quiz. I sent the author a note that one of the questions was there twice, and I wondered how it got past the editors that way. But maybe there are these replicating gnomes that get into the computer and are only tall enought to hit the ditto key?

Dear editor, greatly appreciate it. I hate it for the players for if they do not know the answer they certainly will not know the answer the second time which means that they are penalized twice for it.

The same thing happened to me. Someone took my quiz and said the last three questions were "kind of stupid". I was all offended til I looked. I saw there were all the same. I had had tons of people take it and rate it highly, so I don't think I had published it that way. I sent a support ticket in some time ago, and I don't know if my support ticket went away when I lost my membership or what, but I just checked, and they were still there. I'm considering just going in and trying to make up new questions to replace the extras, but I'd rather have them deleted.

If any editors read this, it's from "Songs From Rent". Even if it was my mistake, can the questions be deleted anyway?
