"YOU HAVE ALREADY TAKEN THIS QUIZ" seems like for some totally random reason, I get this on some quiz screens, on others the ones that I have taken have a red slash, and on others the ones I have taken are simply removed.

I just tried 4 quizzes in a row and they were all already "taken". Arrghhh..

Am I crazy, or is there a simple way to get the screens straightened out in my head?

PS: the answer may be both.

Most of the time when I get this message, it is the result of me double clicking. My computer is awfully slow, even after many defrags, and I am incredibly impatient. My solution is to slow down, be patient, and wait for the computer to patch me through.

Sometimes it is truly a glitch in the system. If I really want to take the quiz, I put in a tech support ticket. I usually get a prompt response back from the team that the puzzle has been re-set.
Hope this helps.

No, these are actually quizzes I have indeed taken. I just forget because I take many "general" trivia tests. Also I'm old and doddering.

What was I saying....

Oh yeah, anyway, my gripe is, how can I get to quiz selection screens that either have removed the quizzes I have taken, or marked them with the red circle slash thingie?

4getful - I am not sure you are answering the question asked (I'm sure Smaug will straighten us all out if I am also misinterpreting).

I think he is asking about quizzes and you are talking about WordPuzzles.

Smaug, in regards to quizzes, I also find it frustrating that different lists show the quizzes in different ways: some lists show the ones I have taken with the circle/slash icon, some lists simply do not show the ones I have taken, and other lists show all of the quizzes, taken or not. I would like the lists to all be the same and my preference would be the circle/slash look.

My only suggestion is to look at the sub-category lists first in teh categories you those lists only show what you have NOT taken yet.

Maybe 2.0 will have take care of this problem.

See - Smaug did clarify while I was composing my longer post!

I've had the same problem, Smaug. My solution is to use the "Most Popular" quiz page as my home base for quizzes. Besides the Most Popular, it also shows you the most recent 15 quizzes in each category. The ones you have taken are marked with the red icon. Then if you click on a subcategory, the ones you have taken do not appear. This works better for me than using the "Most Recent" quiz page.

My advice is to start drinking heavily.

I have had the same thoughts. I totally agree that the various views/screens should have some uniformity about taken quizzes. I would tend to favor the red circle and slash vs. simply not appearing. But the overriding point is consistency in presentation. Please appear in 2.0!

Rats, uniform agreement. I was hoping for some caterwauling re: my attack on Sploofus

Axshully, I just wanted to know if I was missing a trick here. I'll try the two tips given, thanks!
