I started taking quizzes for the Food tournament. Some of my quizzes now say COMPLETED* but I don't know what the asterisk means.

I don't think it means anything since there is no COMPLETED that lacks an asterisk. Maybe it acts like a fancy exclamation point.

Now I have taken some more quizzes and I think I can answer my own question!

If you take more than 10 quizzes, the asterisk shows which 10 are being counted toward your Tournament score. Which I think are the ones I did the best on. As I take more quizzes, some do not have asterisks, and the ones with asterisks are changing as I do better on later quizzes....

Bigdavy - I am soooo glad you figured that out. I am one of the editors in charge of setting up the tournaments, and I didn't have a clue. I did wonder why some had asterisks and some did not.

This editor humbly thanks you!

You're very welcome! I guess we're all still learning about the new features! FYI I just put in an Enhancement request (# 27.003) to suggest that the asterisk be explained somewhere on the Tournament page....

okay - that's weird - I just finished a 4th - now they all say completed and that they all qualify - weird

Kaelin - the asterisk only shows by an individual quiz if you have completed more than the required number for the tournament e.g. the current Veg tournament requires you to complete 10 quizzes - should you complete 13 quizzes, your best 10 scores will be selected and those quizzes will have an asterisk by them in the tournament list. Hope that makes sense.

Didn't work that way for me in the July 4 Tournament.
My tenth quiz said completed, but no asterisk, and for an
hour or two only nine quizzes were included in my score.
I finally took an 11th and it counted (though I did much
better on the 10th) and got an asterisk. No big deal since
I'm nowhere near the top, but still confusing.

Foogs, it seems to take a while to "catch up".... I did fantastic on my 11th quiz and it didn't seem to be counted until I went back into the page a while later.

Karen, all my quizzes had asterisks, from my very first one, until I reached my 11th quiz. Then I started seeing some with asterisks and some without.

Thanks Nelly - that's good everyone to read - and I do understand it - what was weird was it was only my 3rd quiz - they've been showing immediately - I went to take my 4th and it said I had 2 entered in the tournament - I finished my 4th and then the 3rd was showing and the 4th immediatlely showed - maybe because everyone is now on the system and sometimes there is lag....I love the tourney's though - it's a great way to get quizzes seen that might not otherwise get seen - even though there are no points for top finishers maybe Justin could come up with a new bling like the nuggets & diamonds? hint hint
