1. It is stated " Your trivia quiz must have a MINIMUM of 10 questions to launch on Sploofus" I have just taken a quiz on English lanuage topic which had only six questions!?

2. With over 15000 members on the site, what is the actual number of people that are regulars, not just one time players?

3. Is there a way to see the exact number of your average quiz rating except for self addition of all rating values and dividing by the number of quizzes?

Thank you.

What was the name of the quiz, and who wrote it?
Armed with that information, we may be able to do something about it.

A long time ago, a quiz could be written with only 5 questions, so you must have taken an old one. They are still around.

I think memberships are deleted when they go inactive for 60 days, so sometimes you will see the number of members drop when we lose more than we get on any given day. But as to how many are actually ACTIVE?? I have no clue.

And as for your quiz ratings...I can see a stat on my profile page that says what the average rating I GIVE is; on my quizzes written page I can see the average ratings other people give me. Do you have a need to see more decimal places than that??

Thank you for your information, Susan. It was mainly curiousity behind the questions.

However, I would like to know the decimal points. Right now my rating is shown as 7.5. If I would know that it is balancing between 7.6 and 7.5, I would be more prone to create simpler quizzes that do not take lots of time and research to write. If I am leaning more towards 7.4 then I can try to create something that is usually rated higher.

Thank you again.

Your "average quiz rating" (AQR) is not the average of every rating you receive. Rather, it is the average of each quiz's average rating.

In other words, if you've written two quizzes, and one has an average rating of 5.0, and the other an 8.0, your AQR will be listed as 6.5, even if ten times as many people have taken one quiz as have taken the other.

Fair? Who knows? But it makes it possible for you to calculate your AQR to however many significant figures you'd like, because on your "Your Quizzes" page, you can see the average rating for each individual quiz you launched.

And, once you write a bunch of quizzes it takes quite a bit of movement for that average rating to change. I have been sitting at 7.6 pretty nearly forever. I would imagine that a whole slew of EA quizzes would move you upward.

This is just a “test”. I’ve got to try it.
