25 Quizzes a Month for All!

the-alphabet-movie-meme-L-XxZDUEWe have some great news for quiz contributors today, we’ve raised the limit for all quiz creators from 11 quizzes per month to 25.

This is the first time we’ve raised the contribution limit in over 3 years, and we’re really excited to see what kind of quizzes are released. In addition, we’re not allowing all users the ability to contribute 100 private quizzes per month, so if you enjoy making lots of quizzes for studying or friends, the world is your oyster.

We’ve also made a slight tweak to the quizmaster formula, so private quizzes will no longer count towards the score. It shouldn’t have much of an effect on most scores, but if you see your score drop slightly, that’s the reason.
