Why is it that sometimes the Top Ten most popular quizzes change almost daily (as I would expect they should), and other times it seems they're writ in stone (current top ten hasn't budged for at least six days)?
When the former happens, 100 hits and a decent rating will get a quiz in the top ten; when the latter is the case, not even 150 hits and an 8.5 average rating will get you in.
Is this simply a question of upkeep? If so, shouldn't it be more consistent?

I believe that once a quiz hits thirty days old, it disappears from the list. At least that's what happened to my only one that made the top ten.

That is the way I see it. When a quiz hits to Top 10 list, usually within a week of being launched, the ticker starts counting down from 30, then it falls off.

That's backwards! It should get ON the list because it is among the ten most popular quizzes of the PAST 30 days! The inverse is absurd, no?

A quiz has 30 days total: X number of days before it makes the top ten list, and 30 minus X days on this list once it makes the list.

There is no "maintenance" necessary, it is automatic based on the date the quiz was posted.

I know that my quiz in Science (Me a Scientist?) has been played over 100 times and still not in there, however, if you play it a few more, it'll pop right in there!

Hint hint...

I am not sure it is just the number of takers. I had one quiz with over 125 that never made it, but the one with EA had less at the time and made the top 10. Average might also play a part. Who knows :/

Average does play a part somehow, but I'm not sure of the exact formula. Just wondering though, if the Top 10 list were expanded to the Top 20 whether that might serve the purpose many were hoping to achieve with the creation of either a User Award or Highest Rated quiz category. Perhaps then quizzes which get good recommendations in the Hit List might get boosted enough to make it into the Top 20.

This alter-ego of yours, Dibbens-i-forget-what-the-a-s-stand-for, is so eminently reasonable, even visionary, that you might wanna consider actually becoming him.

I'd love to see a top whatever that included the top couple of quizzes from each category.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to thank the folks who have been taking my quiz "Caution! X-Rated"..which is the first'un that ever made the Top Ten!
I am so pleased I finally got a quiz in there! Of course, it woulda got nowhere without all of you folks.....thanks again!

I've wondered about this too. My "The Crappy Christmas Mom Gave Me All I Asked For" has 107 takers and a 7.95 average, and my "Ear Wax" quiz has 100 talers and a rating of 8.12. I'd love to see them in the top 10, especially the fan fave Christmas one.

(Please take them if you haven't already. They'll make you a better person.)

Thank you and have a nice day.
