I love to learn new fun facts but when I am taking a quiz I do not like to read wordy tidbits to answer one question and why do all the wordy quizzes get the awards. Don't get me wrong they are great quizzes and fun for others but I have taken fun, smart, enlightening, clever quizzes that don't receive a thing. Can we vote on what the populous as a whole believe is a good quiz.

I would love it if we could see a quiz's word count as well as its question count!

You already vote on what the people as a whole think is a good quiz: it's called the 25 most popular quizzes.

Well, yes and no. To a large extent, that's a list of quizzes people think they'll like beforehand. For popular, you can scope out the quiz rating on the quiz description page before taking it (and on occasion, that has influenced my final decision in whether to take a quiz).

And then there's always the Hit List on CHAT.
I've often tried one that was recommended,
that normally I wouldn't have noticed

My quizzes have made it several times to the 25 most popular quiz and are not wordy but I would like to see a clever quiz not a word quiz be awarded for there work as well.

Geniuswaitress, I loved one of your quizzes that was rather wordy but it was very clever it received an award and may I say, well deserved, but haven't you read a quiz and they are giving you definitions as if you are reading a dictionary.

Wordy quizzes are almost always a reason I don't rate a quiz a 9. I've bailed out on question #1 if I see two or three paragraphs to read before the question. Unless I'm completely enthralled by a topic, I shy away from the wordy quizzes.

There are wordy quizzes and then there are wordy quizzes. As a writer of some fairly wordy quizzes myself, I have to say that for me, it depends entirely on the words themselves. I agree that it's a drag finding yourself in a quiz that rambles awkwardly and endlessly on about, say, the boring and ultimately meaningless details of some dead rock star's life, or an episode of a long-cancelled TV show. But a good writer with an entertaining voice and interesting material makes for a great quiz experience, regardless of length. I would a hundred times rather do a long, informational, well-written quiz than a dozen short "who sang this" types.

Anyway, there are plenty of both types and everything in between to satisfy every preference. Ain't it cool?

I agree too. I have written some boring short quizzes and some long ones but my problem is i only see long quizzes with awards and some have been really long bla bla bla ones I want to see more of the cute clever quizzes win this awards. Any way I don't want to drag on, I love this site and there is something for everyone !!!!!
