WHAT'S UP WITH LONG DELAYS IN PUBLISHING QUIZZES?

Tried to scan these boards for comments, explanations...but quizzes are sitting for 3-4 days....might be best to initiate a system where authors are rotated to get some variety, as I notice some are publishing slew of quizzes on same topics together...I know variety is spice of life, membership has its privileges, etc. but maybe a system can be set up that sends a published author to bottom of wait list to give everyone, particularly the non-cookie cutter style authors a chance....

Just wondering....

You're right - the wait is about three days for quizzes and Kerblunks (for2.0).

I assume it has everything to do with editors editing quizzes on two different systems- probably a pin in the rear.

I think we all got spoiled in the last year or so with quizzes getting published within a day or so of launching, but before that time it took quite a while too, but there were not as many editors.

Sorry for the delays, but we have a lot more tasks to juggle these days. It may take a while to adjust to the load.

We've been super-efficient for quite some time, but have had periods in the past where the waits were even longer.

Thanx Sploofishy! I understand. I will try to be patient..(i think)
169 quizzes just seems so far away "in the future".

Woo Hoo...I'm ahead of you! My last one has only 166 ahead. Right now I'm pretty discouraged about writing quizzes. A quiz I lauched 2 days ago now has 39 ahead and probably won't see the light of day for a few more days. I keep thinking about "Be careful what you wish for..." with 2.0.

I think in another thread, an editor said they're really ok with people being a bit discouraged about quizzes and holding off a bit. They are flooed right now, and you know how that can be.

And NOOOOOOOOOOOOO - don't take it back. I love "pin in the rear!" I can use that!!!

Hey, if we're getting wishes granted, forget quizzes. I could use a couple thou by April 15.

Why wait for the IRS deadline? I want MY thousands right now - then I could stop considering going back to work after having been retired for five years!

I'm glad you asked that question. Mine has 67 in front of it and I thought that was a lot until I saw that someone had 169!

I've come to the conclusion that the editors will get to the quizzes when they get a chance. I've also noticed no matter what they do they catch a bunch of crap because either the quizzes are getting posted too fast for some peoples tastes or they are being posted too slow. It's a no win situation for the editors because there will always be someone who doesn't like the speed in which the quizzes are released. I say sit back and chill out, drink a beer or two and let things happen when they happen. No point getting upset about it......

Most of us try to get in an edit a few each day. Some quizzes such as ones on movies or songs are a fast edit, while others take some time.
I spent over an hour checking through a very detailed quiz a couple of days ago, to which I eventually gave an Editors Award. Some quizzes need that in-depth attention.

With the weekend almost upon us, I am sure we will be able to dedicate more time to get that backlog cleared!
