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.

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!
