Not so long ago I released a quiz and was told by an editor that 'ALL' the editors had discussed it, and instead of being put in the category I had wanted it (word play) it was going in the For Kids Only category. The reason being, that it was not a proper trivia challenge.
FINE, I thought, until today that I noticed a quiz that was launched by someone else, has been placed in the WORD PLAY category and yet apart from a different title, and wording, the quiz is exactly the same as mine (ie the same style of quiz).

That causes me a problem,
Either the editors or an editor lied to me about 'All' the editors having discussed it,
this new quiz by someone else has 'slipped' through
maybe an elaborate plot against me (doubt if that is true)

NOW, seriously, I do not want to cause trouble with the editors, i really don't. I think they do a fantastic job (as I have said on many previous occasions) but this is really quite irritating.

The thing that annoys me the most is after being told to change the category I was putting a quiz into (which I did no hassle) someone else comes along with a similar style quiz and theirs is allowed in the category I was told it wasn't.

Paranoia makes one, at best, unpopular here. I almost got to that point but now have come to realize that my ideas and suggestions are simply "ignored" by the in-group. I like this site and have learned to take what I can assimilate and leave the rest-can't change a "going thing"-perhaps should not be changed. Just develop a thick skin!!! Linda

I can assure you that there are no plots involved. With the large quantities of quizzes that our editors deal with, oversights are to be expected.

However, the proper course of action here would have been to email me, my friend. You know the address. Creating such a post here could only serve to upset other players which is not necessary.

Thank you,

I see what you mean Alasdair.
The quiz certainly is no harder than any of yours (by the way can't you copyright that idea?).... but presumably sploofus could move that quiz into the other section?

After much research, I found the great grandson of Jack Ruby, and his ties to the Russian Mafia, has created a conspiracy against all NON billionairs. However, The Warren Commission greatly denies this allegation, and says if I would take my Tin Foil hat off, I could hear better.

My original post was not meant to be confrontational on my part. Thanks for the response Justin, as we know things can slip through.

Baggiob, I am just wondering if you are referring to your Kids Only Alphabetically Which Comes First Series. They are in the Word Play category, but if they are for Kids Only shouldn't they be in that category instead. I think if they are titled Kids Only they shouldn't be in other categories. Not trying to be confrontational, I just thought it was odd when I saw the first ones pop up in the Word Play category. Maybe you are talking about completely different quizes. Sherry
