I got up this morning to find several messages from various folks telling me that they have given my quizzes low ratings because of some of them not having capital letters. I checked back over my quizzes and these were written back in 2005 before editors came along and became so helpful...I went back through most of my older quizzes when the editors came and tried to fix them so they would be up to par with my newer ones. I seemed to have missed a few along the way...Please, if you are going to take the older quizzes look at the dates before you send messages out criticizing the way they are written and the writer!
I will now end my grip and go cool off for awhile....Thanks for listening and if I've offended anyone..I'm sorry!.This post was not meant to do that! Just please look at the dates from now on that's all I ask...(My morning is not going very well).

Sorry you are having a bad day, and pooh on any one who isn't happy with your quizzes. I always give anyone whose quiz i take the highest ratng just because they took the time and effort to write one . Hope your day gets better and you have a great rest of the day. Charlotte

Don't worry about them, Vickie. I'll bet they haven't written any quizzes and anything above a 1 rating is beyond them.
May your day be sunny and only good things happen for the rest of the day!

Here's one for you, Vickie. Used to write under the name of "Linda". This am just for fun went back and took some of my own-didn't score 100% on any. Not sure what the point is here-perhaps mind slipping due to old age or I did a lot of research on them which now I have forgotten- AH WELL....

That stinks. Your day is bound to get better from here, sweetie!

Buck up, baby, it'll all come out in the wash, and tomorrow's a whole new load of laundry.

Don't listen to them! Your quizzes are wonderful. I just took one of your older ones myself and rated it very high. Don't let one or two nasty people ruin your day. There are still more nice ones out there!

don't worry about what others say about your quizzes, you do a great job. People sometimes tell me they don't like mine, but so what, I did them the way I wanted, and if they don't like them they don't need to do any more, and they can try writing them and see how they get along.

Vickie, your quizzes are great and are my favorite ones, and they're the reason I joined Sploofus! I don't pay any attention to Capitalization or the nit picky things when I take a quiz! I also give fairly high ratings for the quizzes I take, because it is work to write a quiz, even if you do enjoy it. If I don't like a quiz, it's not the writer's fault I don't like it. I still give it a good rating, and don't take anymore like it if I don't enjoy it. Keep your chin up, and try to ignore the nit picking! Hope the rest of your day is great!

Wow, Vickie! 1,500 quizzes! Without people like you there wouldn't be any Sploofus - but perhaps the 'nitpickers' hadn't thought of that. Congratulations!

My absolute sincere apologies if I offended you or hurt your feelings in any way whatever. I am the one that wrote you last evening. I was not trying in any way, shape or form to dis your quizzes; they were extremely well written and about my favorite music (bluegrass and folk). I simply found them difficult to follow because of the lack of capitols. This is most probably due to me being old and addled.

Congratulations on your 1500 quiz! I hope your day gets better and better.

I'd be impressed with 150 quizzes! 1500!!!!!! I hate it when people say things and don't think of possible ramifications (though it appears you've gotten an apology), in this case the effort of making the quiz in the first place. My hat is off to you!
