Would someone hazard a guess as to the average length of time it takes now between launching a quiz and having it go live?

I realize that right now all the Community Quizzes are sitting in the queue, and they will go live in the next few days. But I'm just curious what your experience has been since everyone moved to 2.0. Are quizzes taking longer to appear?

My post-conversion quizzes are definitely taking longer to go live. I have one in queue now that has been in line for some four days. I expect it will go live tommorrow.
I don't know if the longer queue time is causally connectd to the conversion.

It has been a longer wait for both quizzes and kerblunks to go live. Sometimes a few days, sometimes a little longer. Both go into the same queue though, so that's no doubt part of the reason.

The other thing is there's a lot more sloppy quiz writing going on. I edited four quizzes in a stretch earlier today, and three had text lifted directly from popular websites. Don't think we won't notice it, and when we do, that means we'll have to edit your quiz a second or third time before we even get to the other ones that are waiting.

Mr. Editor: What does that mean "text directly from popular websites"? You mean as a clue or quiz question. I guess I've never taken one that I noticed anything untoward. I did do a square and took some of the information on the "explain" portion (not in the square itself) that I obtained from Wiki. Am I doing something wrong.

I sure don't want to be one of those folks writing "sloppy" quizzes! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

The lines for the bathrooms are ridiculous. I can pee outside, but what if I have to Sploof?

If we all bring a bag of dirt with each visit to the island we can make it bigger. Then we would have room for more bathrooms (and another dance club)
