I think there's a little problem with the quizzes.

I was in the top 10 for the entire month of February, and posted two of the twelve non-trivia quizzes. Those three listed winners did not post any non-trivia, only answered them. I got every non-trivia quiz posted by others correct, so in effect I was penalized for posting the two I made up (and spent time on).

I guess going forward I'll only post trivia so I have a chance at winning.

Trivia questions are much easier to post anyway... this will save me a lot of time.

In before crp's rant lol

Congrats to the quiz winners. Quiz creators still get penalized even though I thought Guru said they wouldn't.

I agree that it is hard to post a "good" QUIZ. I tried twice last month & messed up both times....
Even though it was totally my fault [and i don't think there's a way to fix them once someone answered], it did take a long time to enter all the details. I might have shot too high, attempting PLO8 and 4 players, etc...

It appears that not enough people post quizzes.

Any chance really old quizzes [few years old] could be recycled & pulled back by the administrators?

Either way I agree that any QUIZ maker should not get penalized. Maybe there should be a point or half point given just for posting a good QUIZ.

idk - who's got some good ideas/solution ?

All the quizzes ever made are available to be answered. All you have to do is scroll. As far as receiving points, each quiz maker whether it be trivia or not gets 5 points for creating a quiz.

Hmmm, wingman, now i'm confused


i thought that for the monthly $$cash$$ winnings that the quiz count had to be from the posted quizzes made in that month. [ie. only correct answers for the February created quizzes would be added up].

Are you saying that if i haven't answered prior quizzes but answered a whole bunch in one month, they would all count towards the monthly prize?

I know exactly how to fix the quiz section.
It's a very simple fix, and will result in an influx of a lot of excellent non-trivia quizzes being posted. I'm still pissed off about not being counted among the first place finishers for February though. I voiced my concerns about the quiz results in ioi's guestbook right after the above results were posted, and until I see an acknowledgement that I was indeed unfairly penalized for posting good quizzes and should have been included among those in first place (and that the current setup of the quizzes is not working) I am reluctant to reveal my very simple fix.

Never mind my question wingman - i re-read ur post and can see that i'm confusing getting points for answering quizzes with receiving points for posting quizzes.

thanks for the tip - maybe i'll post a trivia type...

So basically what u mean is that is u create quizes - u dont get points.

Members only get points for quizes answered, so if quizes amount to 10 and 2 were made by you.

Then u lose immediately as the other members would have answered all 10.

Leaving another with 8 because two of those questions were created by you.

So in short... Its better not to create quizes as its penalised against you.

Got it,
- but it doesnt seem fair.

Person who creates the quiz should get the points to keep it a fair game.

But thats just my thoughts.
