MY NEW QUIZ IS IN DRAG

The weirdest thing just happened. My new cartoon quiz just went live, but when it's clicked on, one of my old Largest States quizzes shows up. This is a new Sploofus quirk for me. Has anyone else had this happen? I have sent a Support message, but I haven't seen it fixed yet.

We have run into this problem a few times. I don't have an explanation, but here's how we usually fix it. It's a bit of a pain, but it's the best we have at the moment.

Copy the other quiz into a brand new quiz. Slightly alter the title - like add a "B" at the end. Send in a support ticket requesting the original quiz be deleted. Once you have received notice that the other quiz has been deleted, you can change your title if you'd like.

I was going to put this all in the support ticket response to you, but I thought it might be helpful should anyone else encounter this problem. Also, only one editor has the power to delete quizzes, so I was going to wait for that editor to handle your support ticket.

A while back, I tried to take one of Keith 81052's quizzes, and when I clicked on it, the quiz that came up had the name of the one he had written prior to it, and I never was able to take it because when I clicked it, it naturally said I had already taken it. Good luck with getting it corrected.

Yes, this has happened several times lately. Apparently it's another effect of the recurring site-wide disruptions. Your quiz was most likely launched during such a disruption.

The way this is being handled is to advise quiz writers to copy the questions into a new form and resubmit the quiz with a different name, after which the nonfunctional quiz will be deleted. We apologize for the inconvenience - Justin is aware of the problem and it is currently being worked on.

Thanks.

Sorry for the duplication of response. I just wanted to add that it only seems to happen to quizzes when the author already has a quiz on the "Newest Quizzes" list.

Sploofishy and Sploofanatic: I have followed directions, and I've just launched "TVs Greatest Cartoon Characters - #41-50". Please be on the lookout for it so the other one can be deleted. Thanks!
