from a few days ago? Mine still says that there are 20 quizzes ahead of it and I am just twiddling thumbs wondering if those 20 others are doing the same.
This is not a kick in the butt to the editors, nor is it a rant, just a question.

I submitted 2 quizzes on October 29, one was #13 on the queue when submitted, it actually went UP to #15 and now has been #14 since October 30. I think this editor is spending his sploofus money in the casino.

Sometimes it takes a while longer because there's something in the quiz that needs researching or having to be clarified with the other editors.

I know I've had this happen to me, where a quiz I did the next day was approved before the one I'd done previously. It usually gets fixed in the end.

I did one yesterday & it was approved yesterday.

Was your quiz rejected & you just didn't notice it?

With no offense intended, was your quiz something that looks like it was copied from another website? Maybe they are checking to make sure it wasn't plagiarized.

I know I've seen some quizzes that look like they were copied from Wikipedia. I guess that is OK since they don't mind copying if you credit them. Then again, maybe Sploofus does not like that....

Does Wikipedia have actual quizzes? I use Wikipedia for research all the time (among other places), but I haven't seen any quizzes there. Or are you talking about copying article segments?

I was talking about copying material from Wikipedia to a quiz. I cannot remember which quiz it was, but the question and answers to very similar to an article I had read a few days earlier.

I like Wikipedia and have used it as inspiration for a couple of quizzes I have written. I used it as a resource for my "Big Battles That Start With The Letter" quizzes. They had a nice list of battles there in alphabetical order. It wasn't my only source, though.

I have had 2 quizzes pending for a few days. I tried to wait a few days since it is a new series, but it looks like they may be released closer together. Oh well, I've had others accepted, so I'll just wait and see when these other 2 go live.
Lots of editing for the poor editors since there are so many quizzes at the beginning of the month.

It may be that it just involves research on the editors part. It is a History quiz.
My beef is that I haven't even moved up from having 20 quizzes in front of me. That makes me think that those 20 quizzes are not being looked at.
No offense taken. I do use Wilk and other sites for my info. Not like this all comes from my head ya know!
Just looked and quiz still has 20 in front...still pending.

Yeh - this is my experience.
Loads of quizzes going through, 5,087 to be checked before mine, but done in 10 minutes - or summat like that!
The Editors do seems to work pretty fast as a whole.

I have now had a quiz pending for over 24 hours. It has remained 18th in line since then. I am not sure what's up!!

My 2 quizzes are still pending, but ones I submitted last night were approved this morning. Maybe they have different editors for different categories? I don't know, but I have quizzes pending from 10/30.
Hopefully they will get approved soon! The editors have a lot to get through!
