AUGUST CQ -- BIG CHANGE

August is going to feature a sizable change in the Community Quiz contest. Each month the Community Quizzes are going to become one of the monthly tournaments.

It will work fairly similar to before. A subject will be posted with a deadline for submissions. Then you write a quiz with your take on the subject. When you submit it, instead of sitting for launch date, it will launch with other quizzes. After the deadline they will be gathered and issued as one of the monthly tournaments. Very simple, and it will relieve the problem of the group launches in the past.

The August CQ info is in the next post.

Check its wiki page. That should get you enough information for at least 8 questions.

Question -- I made one today on Southeast Louisiana but couldn't find an August CQ category so I stuck it under July CQ. Should I put it somewhere else or will the editors flop it when the time comes?

In the past, the editors have taken care of CQ category fixes for quizzes launched before the proper category is up.
