TWO EAS BY DYENAMITE

I think you'll enjoy two recent EA quizzes by Dyenamite: There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly (original rhyming verse quize) and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (where he visits Sploofer's homes to eat dinner). Both varied and fun!

Thanks so much! I was STOKED when I logged on to see my first EA for "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A ... What?" but thanks to those who took part in my invitation for the sploofus progressive dinner. It worked a treat - EA's all round for "Guess Who Is Coming To Dinner?"!! Hope you enjoy taking them as much as I did writing them. (If I weren't so computer illiterate I would copy and paste links for you ...sorry!)

If you go to "Your Quizzes" and click on the quiz you want the link to, you get a message toward the top of the screen about how to post a link on some other web page. If you highlight the URL (the part in the quotation marks--but without highlighting the quotation marks themselves) you can copy that address and paste it into your message box on the chat forum. When you paste it, it does not look like a link--but it becomes a link when the message is posted.

If you are linking to someone else's quiz, you go to the quiz itself and then copy the URL from the top of the screen as I did here:

By the way, I am just curious about how the "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" quiz passed the Quiz Authoring Guide rule #4-J "Questions and answers cannot reference any other Sploofus player or likeness."
Editors, is that rule no longer in effect?

Dyenamite's "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" is a must!

Diane, that question came up in the Editor Forum when the quiz was checked. It was generally agreed that first names could be anyone and since neither the Sploofus screen name nor the likeness were used, it was felt that it passed muster.

Thank you. I figured it was something like that--I was just curious. It was a fun quiz.

Thanks for asking, Zeedee. I also wondered how it got approved.

Me too, I was always worried but I communicated with the spport team and was able to generate an appropriate style to satisfy the the rules. Thanks for taking the quizzes!

Also, I asked permission from the survey takers for certain details to be mentioned in the quiz. Nothing was mentioned that they didin't offer, even though by using first names only, as Sploofalina mentioned.

Thanks for the approval. I was pleased it passed the test ... But the EA?? Thanks soooo much for that!

No sploofusers were harmed in the making of this quiz!
