I've already submitted a support ticket for this but I thought I would pose this idea to the general population of Sploofus to get some feedback.

I wonder if it would be possible to make the Community Quizzes have a permanent place at the top of the Category list? They could be just below the top quiz ranking. That way they would get the exposure they deserve for all the hard work that goes into creating them. I notice that most of them average around 70 hits, I think with more exposure, we can get many more of them into the top quiz ranking where they deserve to be.

I don't know if Sploofus can do this but I have confidence in his amazing code writing skills if such an option is indeed viable.

What does everyone else think?

Why should the CQ get special treatment, again? I must have missed something. If you add all the takers and divide by the total members showing, it doesn't add up. The fact that these quizzes stay up on the quiz page for a month and don't attract many takers has to be considered more than enough publicity. It was cute at first but, becomes muddled as of late. I acknowledge that much work went into them, but just as another Seinfeld quiz draws less and less interest, so do the CQ's. I took about six of the December ones. Although Vlcrowe's and Billkozy's were both well written and entertaining, after those there were too many repeated questions. If it ain't broke!

I'm with Fenix on this one.

Every other category it is the newest 15 that are shown and quizzes are added to them daily. Look at the movies or music categories, and it is sometimes a case of a quiz launched into them get less than one day exposure.
But yet the community quizzes list the most recent 40 and seen as they are not added to over the month they get far too much exposure already.

Look at how many people take part in the community quizzes. It is relatively not that many (the most has been 51).
I don't really see the need for giving it more exposure because it has one months exposure anyway. Plus it is not hard to find the quizzes from the sub menus anyway.

19,000 members, average of 40 writing community quizzes. Exclusiveness is not my cup of tea.

I'm with both these guys. I'd actually be for MOVING them off the front page and possibly into other categories after they've had enough exposure. I write them and enjoy them, but after I've done them all and they've been sitting there forever, I get tired of scrolling down that unwieldy list.

How about a listing of month and topic without listing individual quizzes, just below most popular, with a link to the quizzes?

I don't think that the Community Quizzes need any more showcasing than they are getting now. I agree that they are up there far longer than any other quiz, and probably get fewer hits than many. And it is very easy to find them from the drop down menu anyway.

I will take exception to one comment made here, though. They are not all the same. True, there were a lot written on TV specials, and many on Christmas around the world. But, I have taken almost all of them, and have found some that were quite unique. Mine, for example, is on the history of Rudolph. You are not going to find another like that, I don't think.

Ditto, Alice. I took them all (or very nearly) and found surprisingly little duplication. Most will make an effort to be original and find a new slant when they know 30 or 40 other people are writing on the same topic.
