I offer the comment that follows only from my limited perspective. (I am relatively new to Sploofus. I presume those who have been on board longer than I, as well as those who participate more actively, are in a sounder position to comment on the current situation.)

I too conclude that an ideal system would (a) award author points based upon content, and (b) award quiz-taker points based upon degree of difficulty.

Such a system would require significant effort (and perhaps a quantitative aggregation of subjective albeit sincere judgments). I would presume that Sploofus, still with only +/-6500 users and limited ad revenue, is not in a position to deploy the resources to accomplish this.

If so, the question may then arise, would some Sploofers more adroit than I be interested in volunteering to design (and perhaps help support) such a system, with the requirement that they permanently cease their participation as quiz-takers if selected by Sploofus.

It's a daunting task.

The pure alternative may well be a Sploofus that awards no points. (The prizes are, afterall, themselves trivial.) Unfortunately, such a system may well draw even less than the current +/- 6500 participants.

Just some food for thought.

I whole heartedly agree with you Felix. It would seem to me however that the sploofer might very well be the author or creator of the web-site. remember one of the more recent polls about renewing ones gold status????? Now a forum/message board. HMMMM. A sploofus conspiracy in the making. :0

Hmmm, how do you become unidentifiable??, is it the same as those isolated players who "have no public profile"

FYI, I am the author of the 8/15/05 1:14AM EST message titled "Improving the Content of Member Quizzes." I have no idea why my Sploofus name does not appear with the message. (I have nothing to do with the management of Sploofus, and haven'ta clue who they are.)
