I thought it would be a good idea whenever I award an Editor's Award to let sploofers know why, in my opinion, I thought the particular quiz worthy. It may cut down on people thinking "Why that one?" and could be helpful in letting quiz authors know what we like. I'd love for the other editors to do the same.
My first award went to Jedley's Great Chefs quiz. Jedley's quiz is a great example of how a quiz can be chock-full of facts (not just the bare minimum) but also be clearly written in the author's own words. Jedley's style comes through, rather than it sounding like an encyclopedia entry. Good job, Jedley!
My second award went to Kluggernaut's Technical Ceramics for Everyday Use, and if you haven't taken this one yet, check it out. I remembered this one clearly after taking it because it's an unusual subject and I learned something from it. The quiz has humor in it without being a distraction, and best of all...the author has written about a subject they obviously know very well personally.
Next award I give, I'll let you know all about it.

Thanks for the tips, Unsploofable. I'll admit I've been writing quizzes and trying to get an editor's award. I'd love insight into what makes one stick out from the rest.

I have also been letting quiz writers know when they were closr to getting an award and what would have put their quiz over the top.

I have to give props to Kluggernaut on that ceramics quiz. It's so well done. I did learn a lot and agree that the quiz conveys the passion of the writer for the subject. Bravo! All the editor's choice quizzes have been excellent.

I have just awarded Dwayla's "F" in Geography 2. I thought it was a well-written quiz, not too difficult, that very fairly represented the whole world. It also has some fun tid-bits of personal information that make the questions more endearing.

A festival where all the artwork is chocolate? I am so there!

I am enjoying the editor's quizzes, too...although most are TOUGH! But, that's part of the fun. Now all I need to do is WRITE one...

I also just awarded "Midwest U.S. Male Bird Identification" by Biochemwolf

What a fun quiz. The author took time to describe every bird in many details. The author specified in the title and description that all of the birds in it would be specific to the United States. The quiz description and title were well representative of the quiz material. I also like that a cute photo was included and referenced in the quiz itself.
Congratulations on your award!

I'm bumping this post I believe for Godwit, or some other player who recently had questions about how Editor's awards are awarded. Not as much info here as I would like, but I imagine it would help. The Editors seemed to be on much friendlier terms with the players at this time......(all except for one poor fellow...)
