When I create a quiz and submit it, it always says something like, "
There are 18 quizzes ahead of this one in the review queue."

So why, when I submitted a two in one day -- the second while after the first, and the second saying it was further back in the queue than the first, did I get my second one reviewed, but almost a day later, there is still no news on the first one I submitted?

Not upset about something so trivial, of course; just wondered.

An editor has begun reviewing your first quiz, but has yet to complete the task. I do not know what may be involved.

Doh. Makes sense. I think I'm kind of slow today. My brain must be fried. I need to stop taking my quizzes while sitting on my patio - it's already getting hot in Arizona.

Imagine two editors working on editing at the same time. Editor 1 gets your first quiz and starts to edit, but then has to take a break to cook dinner, or his computer crashes, or he has a question about grammar that he wants to run past the other editors, or is debating with himself whether or not this quiz is EA worthy and wants to sleep on it.

Meanwhile, Editor 2 picks up your 2nd quiz, sees nothing wrong, or fixes a typo or two, and launches it.

Editor 1 gets called to an important early morning meeting and hasn't been able to log back on to edit, and today is his wife's birthday, and his in-laws are in town, so he might not get back to editing until the weekend.

Just a possible for-instance scenario for you to mull over!

Bottom line is that anything could have happened to Editor 1 and the quiz now belongs to him. Usually quizzes don't stay "lost" for too long.

Hey fellow Arizonan! It hit 100 in my part of the world today (cooler than yesterday though!).

I am NOT complaining (well maybe a little), but my quiz was launched over a day ago, and a quiz i launched last night has already gone live. The editor who "owns" my quiz must have cooked dinner, rebooted the computer, determined my grammer AND my grampa are as perfect as always , the debate couldn't have taken that long it is NOT EA worthy, and had a good night sleep!! I am still # 15 and have been since about this time yesterday!

I am thrilled with how fast the other quizes have been launching, but the one held up was #2 in a triology of quizes!!

Just my 2 cents,

Well, to be fair, editors don't necessarily have the chance to log on multiple times a day, and personal matters do come up. Most of the time a day or two wait is very fast turnaround for a quiz. The part about being 15 quizzes ahead of yours is kind of deceptive when the queue is this low, as there are just 15 spread around the various editors and then any new quizzes are tackled by any editor who doesn't currently have on on hold (or returned from the quiz author after updates). When that editor sings in next your quiz will be at the top of that person's list. When things are really backed up, popping to the top of an editor's list means yours will get done faster, but when the queue is low it's really the luck of the draw based upon when your quiz's editor has a chance to work on it. Some editors can be on multiple times a day for short periods and others are on for a long stretch of time fewer times per week. The editor in question on your quiz is on quite often, just not since he started editing it.
