First, thanks to all the authors of the CQs. You do a great job. This month seems to have spawned a particularly good batch.

Next month's announcement should be ready this weekend. Watch for the deadline date. We are trying very hard to make it firm. And we appreciate everyone who gets their quizzes in early to avoid a log jam at the end.

Speaking of the deadline...and before someone points it out...Allena's quiz was just launched into the group this morning. For those of you aware of his recent accident, we were asked if he could get a reprieve since he was in the hospital and did not have computer access. Since Allen has participated in every CQ since the beginning, we naturally agreed. Otherwise, we would have done as we have done on occasion with late quizzes...launched them into another category.

i am all for launching quizzes strictly by the deadline; just seems to me that later entries get more hits than the early birds. any way to balance this out

This time i was one of the last to launch, and last i checked I had the least amount of takers....I don't think the order launched has made much difference. AND i think letting allen launch was fair as he he had NO WAY to do it on time!!

Just my 2 cents

Fine with me to let Allena launch late. Rather have his quiz in the mix than not, and even when I write one (which I didn't this time) I'm not so points-hungry as to give a rats patoot if someone else gets a few more hits than I.

I just took Allena's quiz, and it's a great quiz!

Let Allena PLAY! I'm glad Jim is here with us after his accident. What if it had been more SERIOUS? A late quiz is pretty trivial compared to that. I'm just glad he's back with us. Him and Whiskers.

I noticed that the late launchers seem to get more hits as well and their quizzes were on the front page a little longer but it isn't so much about points- it's just that I would like people to take my quiz!!

i was glad ALLENA launched and my observation was not directed at anyone in particular. it's just the FIFO system appears to favor those who submit later...the early bird quizzes get 'lost; down the line, the most recent is what gets noticed more often than not.

just an observation, not a complain

But aren't they all "recent" at some point? I cheerfully admit I don't understand quiz dynamics, but I can't see what difference it makes, particularly with the CQs that sit all month in a group. What am I missing?

Personally, I take all the CQs anyway, so it's a wash for me. As for my CQs, I figure that anyone who wants badly enough to take one of my quizzes will find it regardless.

Allena can do any damn thing he pleases...he is one of the Sploofus gods.
