QUIZZES TAKING A LONG TIME TO GET REVIEWED?

Hi, Everyone. I'm just curious if anyone has had any problems with quizzes taking a long time in queue to get reviewed. I haven't had a problem like it before. I know there are a lot of quizzes being written all the time, but this is different. I've had one quiz that has had a queue of less than 3 for over 5 days now. I thought it was stuck or something, but then after a couple days it went down to 2. It's had a queue of "0 quizzes ahead" all day today. I've done a few quizzes now and I've never seen this. Anyone know more about the review process?

It has happened to me before as well. I have had a few that seem to take forever...and even quizes that i have done later have gotten approved. Just be patient...they will eventually get there

I always assume they are taking extra time to review my quizzes because they are trying to decide if they can give gifts along with the Editor's Award. Money? Fireworks? Nobel Prize? I was wrong.

Akale, sometimes the quiz queue gets quite long. It takes a while to review each quiz for content and to make sure that the material is original. There are several editors but not all of us can be online reviewing quizzes at the same time.

If you had the quiz returned to you for corrections, then the editor who is reviewing your quiz has to re-review it once you make any changes. It goes to the front of that editor's quiz queue, but if he or she is not online, it may take a bit longer. And sometimes, the quiz's content is questionable and requires a decision by the group of editors or even Sploofus. That takes a while.

Now would be a good time to submit a quiz, as our queue is almost empty. That will likely change in a matter of hours.

Keep writing!

You know Sploofette, I agree and I'm aware of the really long queue at times. I've seen it at over a hundred, but even then it takes a only few days. I submitted this quiz 1 time (no corrections) and it has had a queue of less than three for a week. It's been at "0 quizzes ahead of this one in the review queue" for over 2 days now. I'm not being impatient, I just figured something was wrong. I did a quiz yesterday that started with a queue of 83 and it has already been approved. If I could take it out of pending and resubmit it I would just in case there is some kind of error, but that isn't an option. I've seen it take a long time for a quiz to be approved, but the number of quizzes in queue showed a gradual drop. Never have I seen a queue of less than 3 for a week which leads me to believe it has nothing to do with the editors or amount of quizzes. I also highly doubt that the material for this particular quiz is questionable. We'll see. I guess I'll keep making other quizzes. Thanks

I have one in there that I submitted yesterday. When I got up this morning it said there were 12 quizzes ahead of it, that was at 5:30 - 6:00 a.m. It still says there's 12 quizzes ahead of it, even though there have been some new quizzes show up through the day. I wonder if mine is stuck in the same warp.

New update. My quiz still has "0 quizzes ahead of it" in the review queue.

I would imagine different editors get different queues of quizzes, so that they're not doubling up on reviewing the same quizzes. Makes sense to me!

Wow, you've had one in there for 8 days with 0 ahead of it. That means mine should show up about....March? Maybe yours is so awesome they are trying to think of something even BETTER than the Editor's award for it. Ya think?

The editor with my queue is on a hiatus or it's Sploofus asking how quizzes can go on after a quiz like mine.

Any word on your quiz? Mine is still in limbo. Moved up 12 to 11 in 4 days. I wonder if we should put in a support ticket.
