Who is it who accepts facts is it the Quizmasters or is it the H.I.Ts we can do that decides if a fact is approved?

Also should notifications come through when a H.I.T has been verified? wezzer1991 on Xbox Live add me if ya want to know me better man

I haven't done HITs / submitted facts in a long time, but from what I can remember, yes, facts are approved via the HIT system... which is a terrible system, if you ask me, because most people who do HITs are just looking for easy points, and really don't give two ducks about whether the fact is accurate or properly formatted.

There are no notifications regarding verified HITs. It takes two players to approve a fact, so those ones should be verified fairly quickly. I think the only way to tell is to watch the number of completed HITs go up on the HIT page. I suggest avoiding the definitions, because those never seem to get verified... I checked just now and I still have about a hundred HITs (773 completed minus 631 approved and 44 rejected), likely all definitions, that need verification.

Back when I did HITs, there were a handful of other members who were also doing them, and we only did the facts, of course, so they'd get verified incredibly quickly. Not sure how many people are doing them these days.

I am one of the people doing HITs, and i agree that people are only doing them for the points. I saw one of my facts had a spelling mistake in it and it had already been accepted. I have now clicked the red x next to it to put it back under review as it should be rejected but i cant review it myself, since it is my fact.

i have also been skipping the definitions and concentrating on the facts.

there needs to be a factmaster or something like the QMs and Editors
