TIME TO SHUFFLE THE QUIZ CATEGORIES

Hi All
Is it not time that they started moving the quiz categories on the "Take a quiz" page.
I have been doing loads of quzzes this month some of which have swallowed up a fair bit of my time on research,creation etc, however on analysing my quiz stats the food and drink quizzes constantly seem to pull the most hits - even more so if you put the word "easy" in the title.
Personally I feel it would be good to rotate these on a weekly daily basis, thus giving all the better quizzes an equal opportunity of being viewed.
Your thoughts ????

I think this is a good idea. The majority of quizzes that I write will be science ones and I feel they don't get all that much attention since they are always at the bottom.

I have suggested this to Sploofus and been told (politely) that they will 'consider' it. But I suggested it back in July and nothing has happened yet.

Well, I'll add my voice to the mix. I think this is *very* necessary, as the entire "most popular quizes" feature is useless if it only shows the food-related quizzes becuase they're up at the top of the quiz page. People will begin to think that sploofus is a food-trivia website.

Shuffle up the list, and I bet the better quizzes will filter to the top.

Hey all -- would you like the categories to be completely randomized each time you view the page?

Sploofus: That seems good to me. Thumbs up.

Thanks also for putting more quizes on the front page. It would get frustrating in the sections with rapid turnover when I'd write a quiz and it would stay on the page for only a couple of hours. This is a very good change. --mm

Am I alone out here!
The shuffling quiz sections are driving me xxxxxx crazy! Scrolling through and through to find each section each time until that section's quizzes are done.
I'd far rather just know where to go for the sections I use.
Agree totally with the longer question displays, though.

I think that the shuffling of the categories is great. I think we'll begins to see its positive effects in the coming days and weeks as the most popular quizzes begin to come from categories other than Food. That, and the greater number of quizzes listed, will give other quizzes a better chance of being seen and appreciated.

Maybe surreyman's complaint could also be addressed by adding another "Go To" option upon completing a quiz. Right now we get:

- Return to Trivia Quiz main page
- View other quizzes by _author_
- Go to most recent quizzes
- Go to Trivia Quiz category _sub-category_

That last option takes you too deep into the quiz category if you want to continue taking the newest "Music & Musicians" quizzes, for instance, because you end up in the "1960 - 1969" sub-category instead. Perhaps another link could be added like:

- Go to Trivia Quiz category: _main-category_

That way when you're done taking a "Music & Musicians" quiz you could quickly go back to the main "Music & Musicians" category page and bypass the main "Trivia Quizzes" page altogether. I know I would use that link if it existed...

That's a good idea Eric....I noticed last night that everytime I'd return to the main quiz page things would be turned around and I'd have to scroll down to find the category I was looking for...I'ts great that they are alternating them but couldn't they do them say..once a week instead of every few minutes.
Thanks.

Good ideas from both Eksimba and Vicrowe - positive thoughts rather than my negative contribution!

If you select "most recent quizzes" just scroll up to the category list and click the category you like! Easier that searching on the rotating page, plus a longer list of quizzes in the category!
