I completed a quiz at 7.10; its live already at 7.30.
The power and speed of the editors is truly awesome. Do they ever sleep?

Barry is right on. I trust with all the great mail, the editors know how much we appreciate the short lead time. Here's why ...

1. Short memories. If you wait too long, you can't remember how you got the question let alone the answer (I WILL SPEAK FOR MYSELF HERE)
2. Timeliness. If you see the Queen on TV (that's the Major Queen, not just any old Queen) and decide to write a quiz, it is lost on the island if she is already back in merry old England and talking about getting Harry out of Iraq.
3. If you have an idea and get it up, it is less likely that seventeen other sploofusers are writing the same quiz. In a lag time issue, you can find your quiz by another, coming right after yours is launched, and then again and again. You wonder where the version 1.0 sploofus duplicator is stored.
4. No one wants their quizzes blurted out. Suppose you have three in the queue and three days go by with nothing then a few editors get a wild hair and bang ... there they are ... only one getting time on the 'recent' list.
5. A nice note thanking you for your quiz can generate more quizzes ... if the note is within your current thoughts and you haven't gone back to stamp collecting or painting by numbers.

I believe the short wait is conducive to better quizzes, more quizzes and great feelings about the island. Huzzah for the editors. Somehow, I fear the new editors will get callous and we will need more new editors. It is more than clear that only a few of the announced 27 are doing the rapid march to the quizzes. Burn-out is possible and then we will be back at the leaky watering trough.

I do remember having a bridge club with greedy folks. If I served a surprise lunch of cold cuts and maybe a Caesar Salad ... I received great thanks. The next day ... I was despised for failing to bring a surprise lunch. I really hope our new quiz queue is permanent.
