I'm puzzled by this "new" site. When I click on Music and Musicians and click on the 1980s, it now shows me all the quizzes I've taken and I have to click through pages and pages to get to quizzes I haven't taken. Before it would just displays the ones I'm allowed to take. Is this what's supposed to be happening? Now I have to click many, many times to find quizzes to take. On first blush the new site looks WAY more complicated than it was yesterday. Any thoughts welcome.

I was having just the opposite happening to me...It showed all the quizzes but not the ones I had already taken...There are still a few bugs I think But hopefully everything will be working fine in a day or two...Did you send in a support ticket? If not, I'd do that and see what happens...I know this doesn't help much but I do know what you are going through...

It looks like now we have both for our view, taken and untaken. Personally, I like being able to see the ones I've taken. Before, if I wanted to recommend a quiz to someone that I had taken in the past, there was no way for me to find it and do so. Also, I can now go back and click on quizzes I've taken and see where my standing happens to be.

Yeah but what if you've taken dozens of the most recent quizzes in a category and you have to keep clicking page after page to find a quiz you want to take? If this isn't a glitch this is going to be a major drawback to Sploofus. Part of the fun of this site is being able to go through quizzes quickly and not have to keep clicking and clicking.

I agree with Clydesmaster. I prefer to see only the Quizzes I haven't taken. It is a waste of time to go page after page as opposed to one page with the quizzes you haven't taken.

There are some headings across the top of each quiz category, such as date, author, name of quiz, etc. To mix things up, click on one of those at the top and it will resort the quiz lists for you. For example, if you click on "date," it will resort the quizzes with the oldest written coming up first instead of the newest. Then you can work your way forward.

I've been discovering whole new quizzes - and categories - by clicking on the "related quizzes" to the right of the one I've just taken. Some of them are not so closely related, but it has been interesting to see where I land.

It is frustrating to go through pages and pages of quizzes I've already taken. Mostly I only do new quizzes now.

Thanks for that tip, Lodi! I didn't know you could rearrange the quizzes like that. That will certainly help! And I like your new avatar, alrhough I think I'll miss the crying baby! Almost everyone (including me) seems to have changed avatars! Actually I preferred Justin's old one to his new one.

I think the crying baby may have to make a comeback, by popular demand.

Clydesmaster - you're never going to like everything about something. Lots of people complained about there being no differentiation between taken quizzes and non-taken quizzes. Justin was gracious enough to show us which quizzes we have taken. I think the lined out quizzes is a nice compromise between seeing all quizzes and not knowing which ones we have taken, and only showing the ones we haven't taken. Some of us still like to see all the quizzes and be able to look back into a quiz and see what are standings are. Hopefully you can enjoy all the other fun new things of Sploofus. If the lined out quizzes are a make or break situation for you, that sucks but you just can't please everyone.

I guess I haven't taken that many quizzes. I enjoy seeing what I have taken. I can remember clicking on a quiz only to find I had done it before. The line through the subject eliminates that extra time in search of something I haven't done. I was very pleasantly surprised to see this. There are two sides to this situation and everyone will not be happy with everything on the new site. We weren't happy with the old either. Let us just have a peaceful island where we can all express our views and enjoy each other's differences without retribution.

Like any new change, it takes awhile to get used to. There are some things that I want to see from the old like "Leaders By Level" - that was a biggie for me - I'm nowhere near the "top" in anything except occasionally word puzzles, and the Leaders by Level gave me a goal to reach - top 5.

My time is at a premium - the only thing I try to do religiously is the word puzzles, and the new tournaments are my best bet on taking quizzes - otherwise, I'd probably never be challenged to take any quizzes that I was not familiar with - the spirit of competition gives me the incentive to step outside of my box.

The one thing I did learn today was that I couldn't edit my Kerblunk title - imagine my embarassment when I saw publicly posted that I had spelled Edgar Allan Poe's name wrong!!!

I've of course, sent in a support ticket on that.

The beta testers have obviously had time to get used to the new system, and again, like many things that change, you will eventually become used to the change. It won't happen over night, and if you do have suggestions, click on the Report a Bug link down on the bottom right - Suggestions and Requests is still there - I'm sure that all are taken into account as Sploofus continues to work out some bugs and add more enhancements or here you go: - That's the direct link to Suggestions and Requests

Have a good one!

Clydesmaster - Easy wasn't making a nasty post saying the crying baby needs to make a comeback -she was talking about her "crying baby" avatar she had on 1.0 - and someone above said they liked that avatar better than her present one. That line had absolutely nothing to do with you or anyone else's posts about problems with the site!

It's all good.

Clydemaster - I'm confused that I'm not seeing the same thing you are seeing
I go to what you are talking about
and what I see is the quizzes listed in the order they were released with the most recent being listed first and on the far right the "taken" label that shows the number of times the quiz has been taken - also by clicking on quiz title, date, difficulty or taken you can sort them as well.

I'm not seeing anything that says I've taken these quizzes - maybe I'm misunderstanding your post? To see the quizzes I've taken I go to the red oval my sploofus and scroll down to the third heading of links and the first one is game history that shows what I've done...maybe I'm not clicking the way you are?

Eesusbejesus  (Level: 75.0 - Posts: 3641)
Wed, 2nd Jul '08 10:33 AM Yeah, I was talking about my avatar, as referenced by the post directly above mine.

Good grief.

Kaelin, if you didn't see any lined-out quizzes, then there are no quizzes on that page that you have already taken. I went to the page you had linked, and I had to click to the seventh page before I found a "taken" quiz. (I do not usually take music quizzes.) Either try hitting "Next page" a couple times, or go to a category that you often take quizzes in. I'm sure you'll find the lined-out titles.
