I was just checking out my quizzes and something made me look to see whether I had any quizzes that had not been taken this year. Answer yes: one taken on 23 December 06.

Does anyone have any quizzes not taken since 2005?
Or if not what is the earliest date we can dredge up...
By the way I'm not going to tell you what the quiz in question is but it DOES have an 8.23 rating; I wish all of my more popular quizzes could say the same!

I have to say that, as a recent member, I find it difficult at times to find quizzes that may be "old" that I would take. When an author has oodles of quizzes or a subject has over a thousand, e.g., I lose interest in looking for..., what was I looking for? Anybody with quizzes not taken recently--let me know and I'll try them. Post it somewhere so that us newbies know to check every quiz under your name or in a category. Maybe this thread or another can be used for stale-dated quizzes. It doesn't mean that we don't want to take your quiz, only that, in my case, I forget or get distracted, or may just be too lazy that day to look through a bunch of titles. I would love to be able to claim that I have taken every quiz on the island; however, I know that I would score zero on a bunch. I would take those to learn something new. I don't always want to learn something new. (I would put some emoticons here but I forgot how to do them. Imagine a thumbs up and an eager face.)

can we rename you 'curious George' since you keep coming up with all these questions regarding stats??? )

i wrote 19 of my quizzes in March and April 2005 before surgery on April 15, 2005 side-lined me from sploofus. all but one of those quizzes have had activity within the last 30 days.

I have 4 quizzes that have not been taken in 2007 - the earliest "last taken" date was Oct '06

A very interest thread. With some mention lately of finding a way to keep new quizzes showing longer (or an equal amount of time) on the most recent board, you'd think no one searched or subscribed to quizzes. I have not written a quiz this year, yet all but one of my 149 quizzes have been taken in 2007. For some reason the one left out is one of my favorites. It's times like this when Justin looks like a genius when it comes to how this wonderful sight operates.

I have one quiz that was not taken in 2007 (though it only misses by three days). I'll make an offer: The next person to take it, I'll more than repay in kind by taking two of your quizzes. But after railing in another thread against self-promoting, I'm not going to say what it is. Find it and enjoy it if you want, or not. It doesn't matter

Uhhhh, Kaufman, how am I going to figure out which of your puzzles before 2007 has NOT been taken in 2007? I figure there must be an answer but I'm not sure where to find it.

You're not necessarily supposed to. It's my way of saying take quizzes that interest you, whether or not they're mine.

Stone, if you take a quiz you enjoy, rate it, and then choose "View other quizzes by [whomever]." The oldest quizzes are at the bottom of the list. When I want to take all of someone's quizzes, I start with the earlier quizzes so that if some of them are "Part 1, 2, 3" of a subject, I get them in the proper order.

There is a "Take my quizzes" link on everyone's profile page. Newest quizzes are on top.

You can also choose a favorite category under "Trivia Quizzes" and scroll to the bottom of the page for the earliest quizzes.

I'm constantly amazed about the people whose names I dont know. When i go to their list of quizzes I discover a bunch of quizzes I'd never seen and which in some cases were so far back that I'd never have found them.
The player search is a great way to find new and unusual quizzes (although if they were written pre 2006 they may not have been edited as well as our current batch!)

I have only been writing quizzes since March 2007. I have three quizzes not taken since August 17, 2007. I do work at writing interesting quizzes, although many of them cover topics of potentially more limited interest. I am proud of all three of these quizzes and do not mind promoting them: (1) Transformation! Classic Literature Into Comics. (About Classic Comics); (2) We're Only In It For the Money: Crimes for Cash (About famous criminals whose crimes we're motivated by desire to make financial gain, covering kipnappers and modern swindlers), and (3) An American Tragedy: Race Riots of the U.S.A. (Says it all).
