Does one get points for entering tournaments? If so, when do you know and where is it posted?
Also, does one get points for being in the top hundred or so for WPs at the end of the month? If so, where is that posted?
Also, are points given for creating squares? Nothing is listed on my homepages like it is for quizzes.

Thanks in advance to all you brilliant folks!

No points for tournaments. No points for being in Top 100 WP monthly leaderboard and I think there has been a recent thread saying currently no points for authoring trivia squares! Looks like you've hit the Jackpot!

Addendum! Found the thread re Trivia squares -

You earn the points you get for taking the quiz - it ups your rank for monthly quiz takers - if there were points for tournaments (which I REALLY enjoy) - there would be some major issues going on at this point - I'm not saying past or present but I've run into 3 quizzes that had errors in their answer - which I imagine would cause a major issue in hashing out who "got the points" - I take them knowing that learning something new & that otherwise I probably wouldn't be taking many quizzes simply because my time doesn't allow it.

I think it's a great way to get more diversity out there and get some quizzes taken that might not otherwise get seen.

I think it would be nice to have some bling though (like nuggets or EA's) or a little box like 1,2,3 on WR's/WM's - :

I figured out how to download pictures and I really enjoyed making squares but they are horridly time-consuming. I think a little something for creating them would be nice, as someone can get like a jillion for spending five minutes making a one word question one word answer quiz.

Or...Justin could just give me a pony!

Mmmm. Nice but expensive to run and very time consuming, Beth!

You do get points for authoring Trivia Squares (otherwise, how do people get onto the Trivia Squares Authoring Leaderboard?). This is one of the statistics you can have show on the footer of your page (go to MY SPLOOFUS: Site Settings).

Regarding errors in quizzes - when we create Tournaments we don't scrutinize every question in every quiz. We do try to make sure we choose quizzes that were written after Editors were added to the site. But editors do not edit quizzes for content. If you find an error please send a PM to the author (don't use the link from the quiz right now, as that makes your comment public); use the link off their profile page and let them know what you find wrong about their facts (but be nice!).

I'm a little confused since you created a thread on this topic a few days ago and Sploofizz answered then that you get points for authoring Trivia Squares. Anyway, here's the link if you want to go over that thread again:

If you look at the Trivia Square Authors leaderboard (see the drop-down menu), you're currently ranked at #19 with over 11,000 points. So, it looks like you're being awarded points for authoring.

Sploofizz, I don't know if this particular stat is working in terms of showing up in the footer. I have my site settings set to display Trivia Square (taking) rank and Kerblunk (taking) rank, for example, and neither are displaying at all. It appears that a bug report has already been submitted about this, though, so I didn't add another.

I see that I currently have a N/A for those stats. Maybe there is a bug in the system, or maybe no one has taken my puzzles in July!
