It is good to have a "soap box" forum like Chat to air opinions, suggestions, or complaints. With references however, to poor quality quizzes slipping through, consider the extent of knowledge demanded of Sploofus editors when presented with new quizzes, and how quickly they have to assess the accuracy of the materiel presented, when deciding whether to accept a quiz.

I think the main quiz criteria Sploofus uphold is that quizzes are factual, not plagiarized, or include anything deemed offensive. I agree with Jeopolito 1 that despite editors' advice to correct spelling mistakes, these amendments may not subsequently be made before the quiz goes live. Also, with regard to se of capitals etc., there are some guidlines in the Sploofus Quiz Wizard although it does not extend to grammatical requirements.

BUT CELEBRATE!, like me, you must all be pleased that Sploofus have recently introduced two daily Word Puzzles. (I may never attain a number 1 score, but I love them!). Thanks again to Sploofus for the priceless joy you offer, and your commitment to providing a professional and qualitative quiz site.

My complaint? - well at this precise moment it is pop up advertisements. It happened today when doing the daily Trivia Question and interupted my concentration to re-select another answer (which as it happens, would have been the correct one). Do any others out there, have this happen to them?

I think the editors are doing a GREAT job! I know that they have kicked back my quizes for typos that i missed even with a proof-read or three, and i REALLY appreciate the added notes. I have had some of the most creative comments, that just nake me smile. creating quizes has become my newest addition and i really appreciate all the hard work from the editors!

On the same token, I appreciate the members comments when something has slipped passe, i always make the changes once i know about them!!

OK I am through sucking up now

I have never seen a pop-up. Did you have any other windows open that might be the culprit?

I've never had a popup.

Onto things to be happy about.
MY HAIR SMELLS LIKE CUCUMBER MELON! And it only cost me 99 cents for the shampoo and 99 cents for the conditioner. Now THAT'S something to be happy about!

I get popups quite frequently when I click on a quiz to do.....Grrr...!! My popup swatter takes care of most of 'em, but not those'uns! Happy to say I have never had one in the middle of TQOTD or Word Rounds.

Hi everyone
Oh yes, another little irritation that sometimes in the middle of playing a Wordround etc., is that my Internet connection freezes - I hope that never happens to you.

You may have one of those computer gremlins lurking inside. To be serious now, that has never happened to me.
