A Proofreading Appeal!

Proofreading is taking more time than it used to. I think more people should proofread quizzes! It shouldn't take so long. It might make new users impatient and send quizzes to the QMs without letting it be proofread.

While this thread is many months old, I'm going to have to agree with this. Only one of the quizzes currently in the proofreading stage have comments. I know that the length of time it takes for people to proofread has prompted me to submit quizzes without anyone else seeing.

While I'm not asking everyone to look at every quiz and proofread it, I hope people will have a look at some of the quizzes a give some helpful advice to the authors of the quiz.

Yeah I think newbies should have to go through the proofreading process until they've made 5 quizzed or so.

I've put my quizzes in the proofreading stage but rarely get comments, makes it more difficult to get approved!

Thanks - 500 seems high, but I understand the reasoning behind it.

I have 5 quizzes in the proofreading stage, their all about roald dahl books, there's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, The BFG, and Matilda. If anyone could give me a hand I'd really appreciate it!
