I'm tying myself in knots trying to do a quiz.

1) I got a response saying I had submitted two correct answers for one of the questions. (I haven't). I relaunched it with an explanation of why one was wrong. Although I am not sure whether my first reply went. As I got two boxes up saying I could leave a message, the second message I left was shorter as I was well confused at this point. So now the whole thing is pending again in the queue of 30+.

2) I thought I would look to see if anything had been changed by the editor, and there is a minor amendment to one of the questions - but it basically now gives away the answer. I would like to change the answers or the questions but I can't because it is pending, I can't relaunch. I don't want it to be published as is.

3) I would probably change another (wrong) answer too as I think technically there is slight ambiguity but this is very minor. The other two issues are not.

Regardless, how on earth does one communicate, when the launch button has been pressed? Sorry for sounding a total idiot, it is the first quiz I have done.

Nothing to do with my question, but considering there were 30 in the queue it was looked at amazingly fast.

And yes, I did read all the guides, triple-checked the quiz, even got partner to read it... I now realise I should have read back through before I relaunched to see if the editor had changed anything. Easy to be wise after the event.

Thanks in advance for any answers.

i just completed your Gibraltar quiz.. i found it interesting and very informative. considering the fact that it has been over 30 years since i studied world history; i think my low score of 40% was more than justified.

i look forward to more of your quizzes.

When the quiz goes live, go to "Your Quizzes." Click on the name of the quiz you are concerned about and then on the "Questions" tab. Next to each question is an "Edit Question" link. Click on it, and you can make any changes you want.

When your quiz is pending, you can't change the questions and answers, but you can change the Quiz Description. Add a note on top in big capital letters, and your editor will be sure not to miss it. It can discuss a specific matter, or just ask that the editor send the quiz back to you immediately, so you can make further changes.

As for the speedy processing you experienced the next time through, do not be misled by the number of pending quizzes. Once your quiz has been reviewed for the first time, it is then "owned" by the editor who handled it, and when you relaunch, it goes to the head of that editor's queue. Thus, it will be taken care of the next time that editor edits, regardless of how many quizzes are "ahead" of it.
