Small Point This, I Think.

On the Trivia quizzes section it now says how many people have taken the quizzes.
Beside my community quiz Award Winners, it says taken 98 times
Yet on my 'your quizzes' screen it says it has been taken only 90 times.

Is there a delay somewhere for something?

I found this difference as well - but I don't think it can be a delay since my quiz 'fell off' the category front page earlier today and the takers figure, which had been climbing steadily up until then, stopped dead (as you'd expect) at 69 on my 'your quizzes' page - where it had said 80 on the category front page just before it 'fell off'!

The thing is though if there is a difference and it is a true difference, are we or are we not getting the points for it?
Perhaps an editor may know?

We have discussed this issue before and our best guess is that the discrepancy is due to people who have started a quiz and not finished (on purpose or due to computer error). These aborted quizzes do not show in YOUR count of takers, who all finished the quiz, but DO show up in the total of people who are no longer eligible to take the quiz.

This is just a guess though - not an official announcement.

After you take a quiz, it says on the screen "Rate this quiz to receive your point award". When I was new to the site, I know I forgot to rate a few quizzes and I did not get points as a taker.

Does this count as a quiz taken in the new display?

But since it was not rated, then does it fail to show up in the author's quiz stats?
