HAVE THEY STOPPED LAUNCHING QUIZZES??? - EDITOR COMMENT WELCOME

I have a quiz which has been sitting there for seven days - the whole week now - waiting for the editors to launch it! It's had 10 ahead of it for 3 days now. It certainly discourages a person from even creating quizzes when they never launch them! Is anyone else having this problem?

Sorry for any delays. Many editors are currently on vacation, some in corners of the world were computer access is limited. Strange to imagine that places like that still exist, but having recently come back from one myself, they still are out there.

Also, another new issue is slowing us down - defining what is a kerblunk and what is a quiz. When we hit a kerblunk that should be a quiz, it pains us to have to send it back, making sure we do it in as nice a way as possible, so that takes time.

And another new addition, we have to remember to check the separate Trivia Squares queue. Those are trickier to edit - they are seemingly straightforward when you open them up, but it is easier for errors and mistakes to slip past because there are actually more things to check for - with your eyes moving from the clues to the answers on the grid - and then if a mistake is found, you have to go to a different screen to make the change - it'll take us a bit of time to get it down were we are both proficient and efficient.

Thanks for the timely answer, Sploofishy! I will keep (impatiently) waiting for the launch of my long list of submitted quizzes and quit complaining!

Sploofishy: Where on earth did you go? Geez, do you have a time machine that took you back to pre-computer times? Just the thought puts me in withdrawl...

Someone has been working. The quiz queue is flying!

Thanks, as usually, ye editor Gods. How about looking over some squares; I have seven sitting around.

Every time someone complains that the editors are editing too slowly, another editor gets sick.

Well, not really, but if you think your quiz may have gotten lost in the queue, send in a Support Ticket with the name of the quiz in question. If nothing else, we can see if it's proceeding normally.

I can't imagine the time it takes with the number of submissions vs. the number of editors even when they don't take well deserved vacationsl

I submitted a series of kerblunks beginning July 23 and there were 160 something in the queue - I just checked and now there are only 52 ahead of me, so it seems that there isn't a stall.

Quality control just takes a bit of time I would think

At least I finally got "the kerblunk" down so I don't expect returns this time!
