700 TAKERS IN LESS THAN 6 HOURS

"10 Foods Not To Eat While Driving" is showing 700 takers and it was launched less that 6 hours ago (on 2/27/08). In less than 6 hours it is now #1 on the Top 25 List. Have 700 people actually taken the quiz from midnight to 5:53 a.m. or do we have another Sploofus burp?

wow it was at 707 when I went & took it - easy quiz - and 715 when I finished - I wonder if Doobie has it promoted somewhere & is gathering in a bunch of new sploofusers at the same time...

I think there is definitely something wrong. I just looked at the front page of the quiz again, and it indicated that I had taken it, which I have not. Maybe it's adding up each time someone looks at the quiz description.

That's too amazing to be real. Of course, I'm totally jealous.

What's going on with this, are the higher ups conducting an investigation? Enquiring minds would like to know.

If it is a glitch would be difficult to take it back from this new person I would think!!

'Kerpin' who managed a 24 second time for the number one position does NOT have a public profile. I think 2.0 tests are in progress. Who knows? Maybe I should say, I hope 2.0 tests are progressing. I suspect Dynomite has a reasonable grievance seeing his great quiz take second place.

According to the quiz author's profile, he is not new, having joined on 12/25/04. I think you may be correct, Jim, about editors playing with 2.0 today.

Now i see he is not new at all right up there in level points-just don't recall the name much in quiz writing but see he has several!!

This happened with a few quizzes about a year ago. Justin blamed it on a database glitch. I sent him an urgent email to see if he can remove it.

The top 25 list only changes once a day. How could the quiz be released today and also be in the top 25?

The Top 25 is don at approximately 5 a.m. If the quiz went live just after midnight, it could be in the tally at 5.

Maybe someone else can help me with something I noticed and don't quite understand.

There is a player at level 3.7 with 3.7 Billion (yes with a B) points? On 2/14 they had 63K points, jumped up over 3.7 Billion in one day. I could understand a bunch of great wagers, but at level 3.7, they'd only have 3 (8 if the birthday thingy factored in). And since it happened in one day, you can't have a bazillion showdowns launched in one day either.

Glitch...or am I missing something?

Me.

well......that player has been a member since August 2006, so if they hadn't used showdowns, they could have had, what, 70-80 stored up? Still, only one a day allowed, and I see they are only 28 percent on showdowns.

But, nah, gotta be a glitch.

The other amazing thing about that player is that her (female is the only info on the profile) 30 Day Point History doesn't start until 2/16/08.

The new multibillionaire's 30-day profile is flat at 63,652 from 01/29 thru 02/14, then jumps 3,769,700,00+ on 02/15. It just appears to have first started on 02/15 because 63,000 points is miniscule compared to 3.8 billion.

Maybe she just won the weekly Sploofus lottery. That's how I got a lot of my points.

Oh, yeah. I also got some points by hacking into Tex's account. No, you can't have them back.
