PROBLEM WITH QUIZZES

I just took a newly released quiz, and I'm sure I got at least the majority of the answers right. My score showed 0% correct. No CORRECT ANSWERS were given. These were the results posted:
(#1) Carlin1 scored 0.00% in 52.15 seconds.
(#2) Cenas scored 0.00% in 66.58 seconds.
(#3) Xanadutn scored 0.00% in 76.85 seconds.
(#4) Vm2450 scored 0.00% in 80.54 seconds.
(#5) Willow58 scored 0.00% in 105.23 seconds.
(#6) Maurlin scored 0.00% in 140.33 seconds.
(#7) Cjar855 scored % in seconds.

These quizzes may reflect the problem in writing the quizzes of showing what was considered 5 wrong answers and none right.

I've taken a few quizzes and after I finish it shows the points I've won, asking me to rate the quiz, but no questions or answers show up...I'm not sure if I actually got the points or not..altho my stats on quizzes taken show that the quizzes had been taken..Strange!

On the first page of this quiz, Fictional Restaurants On TV, (a pretty neat one, by the way) it shows no takers and an Average Content Rating of 6.5.

I have been receiving messages from some of the members, the results from taking a couple of my quizzes did not result in their scoring! I don't know why that is and I'm so very sorry! SOMEBODY HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEE!

I did have problems editing one of the questions in the quiz, not sure if that could have resulted in the 0% score. I suppose the best course of action might be to remove the quiz???

After checking my quizzes, I realize this is happening on more than one quiz, actually the last four...did not attempt edits to all of them that I can recall, even so, should not the editing have worked without this embarrassing result? I've been a member for a week, gee, no one will take my quizzes now!

We are not seeing things, I too am having a problem with quizzes. Some of them are working fine while others are not. Is anyone having a problem with WordRounds? They are not working either. I'm sure that Justin is working overtime to fix the problems for us. Just hang in there.

I agree with Maurlin. I didn't realize the connection until I had launched my quiz yesterday. The scores of 0% definitely are a result of the quizzes being launched with what appears to the system as (5) wrong editors. Once the editors receive the quizzes to edit, I'm sure they only see (5) answers and have no way of knowing which is the correct one. I have started another thread trying to get my quiz back until I feel it is safe to launch it. The quizzes which are resulting in normal scores may have been already written and not launched yet or in a long queue when this glitch ocurred.

The editors are certainly aware of the problems with the quizzes, and for the most part we are sitting it out and waiting for the problems to be fixed before any more quizzes are released into the system. Periodically, we think things may have been fixed, release a few, then realize there are still problems, and hold back again.

You can be sure that Justin is doing whatever he can to get our Sploofus Island totally afloat once more.

Perhaps, if we notice that is happening on one of our new quizzes, we should delete whatever datails we have written, and instead have it say DO NOT TAKE THIS QUIZ YET...THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE ANSWERS! At least that way we won't have folks getting frustrated and giving a low score.

Good Morning, Linda! I think that would be a good idea, especially if one has already gotten out. Check on new quizzes for "Crying" Songs by Valedc4. She posted that note as you say, on hers. She told me some people read it, and some don't. I think I'll just refrain from writing any more quizzes until I know it is okay, and the right answers show up in "red".

I've got a Quiz out there also that is coming up with zero answers on it. I hope that if this is fixed,the players will get their points back.

You may be able to go into your quiz and click on details, and type this at the bottom: PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THIS QUIZ AS THE CORRECT ANSWERS ARE NOT REGISTERING! Valedc4 did this on her newer quiz called "Cry"ing Songs. If you find it, you'll see what she did. You could go in and delete it once the problem was resolved. It stops some people from taking it if they read it. Hope this helps.

Rania's Fun with Numbers...at 12:45 EST.

Top 10 Leaders for this quiz:
(#1) Garrybl scored 0.00% in 65.45 seconds.
(#2) Sprtsguy810 scored 0.00% in 79.68 seconds.
(#3) Nickdanger scored 0.00% in 85.54 seconds.
(#4) Aslan scored 0.00% in 92.95 seconds.
(#5) Allena scored 0.00% in 98.36 seconds.
(#6) Mkpatchin scored 0.00% in 100.84 seconds.
(#7) Mataya2005 scored 0.00% in 103.28 seconds.
(#8) Willyman scored 0.00% in 103.78 seconds.
(#9) Grphysciteach scored 0.00% in 106.57 seconds.
(#10) Sianii11 scored 0.00% in 106.86 seconds.

However, "1000 Places you should go before you die" launched two quizzes before, is fine...getting play and notes. There is more to this than meets the casual eye...I suspect Justin is not working casually.

ON my last quiz now launched but not activated, there is a correct answer among the choices. Before launch the correct answer appeared in red-after launch all answers appear in black. If anyone should take it and miss any, they would not know what the correct answer was supposed to be-so either know that or don't take it-sorry-Linda quiz title: Academy Award Winning Actors - 1990s

Some of those that are working normally may have been written before the glitch. Once they were entered in their correctly, they may have been held and launched later which accounts for the normal scores. It is mind boggling, but I am sure Justin is doing everything he can to get things back to normal.

I just took a quiz that was dated in December of 2006 and after the 5th question a white screen popped up and said..."ahhh you've already taken this quiz. sorry." It was a good one too...it was about doctors. I think it was written by garryb....

Also got zeroes more than once today. I hope this irons out without too much trouble.
