Oh, thanks, whew. I thought they'd send it back or something. Never mind then. That's my only question.

This question is a little weird, but since there are so many teasers, and since the advanced search doesn't work for me (unless im taught lol), how do i know if my teaser is a duplicate or not?

The advanced search is your answer. Either that or you can solve every teaser and remember them all, which actually works to a certain (limited) extent for me.

Is there any way we can appeal teaser rejections? I have had a rebus teaser rejected because the answer was a single word rather than a phrase, but I have seen several rebuses that have single words as the answer. If you don't like my teaser, that's fine, but rules should be applied consistently.

You can post your argument in the Ask a Question forum.

First, complete the IQ test to get some quick points. Click Here for the IQ Test!

Then either rate lots of teasers or create trivia quizzes, or a little bit of both.

All the things you can do to get points.

Before you submit your teasers, though, do a few searches first to make sure they're not already submitted by other users.

I look forward to reading them!

How can you tell what is a duplicate and what is not? Is there a quick way to do it?

Search if there is any exactly identical teasers.

If there is, it is identical.

I do not understand the question...

I have made two quizzes in the sports category and put on proof reading for both. How do I know if they were proof read so that I can submit them to the quiz masters?

Hi wheels. I copied this directly from the FAQs:

"You must have a high score and have some high quality teasers approved to the site before becoming an editor. Additionally, you should participate in the message boards, report duplicates, correct teasers, and generally prove to us that you want to be an editor. Editors are hand picked by the current editors based on their participation in all areas of the website. A good candidate will not need to ask us to become an editor. If you participate in all areas of the website in a productive manner we will notice you."

SMILE and people will wonder what you are up to!

I am wondering why my teaser(Mega Teaser 1) has not gained any votes yet.
It has been submitted on May 6.

Edit: Thank you for helping! It has now been approved.

Why do Brainglers change their signature often?

How do we contact the editors to make minor changes to a rejected teaser? I'd like to change the category of one of mine that just got rejected, from a rebus to an other. Thanks!

Teaser submitted: Everyone gives me before they ever get me. What am I?
Hint: Don't think outside the box...think inside
Answer: Parenthood

Rejected because reviewer(s) don't think clue leads to the answer. Can't understand that box refers to womb. Yet allowing teasers that require knowledge hardly anyone would know like density of planets. Being like that makes you lose users.

Well, that one does seem kind of obscure. Are editors watching this forum? I know they're busy, but it's been almost a month and I'd like an answer, since I can't find where to contact editors anywhere in the guidelines.

SqueeLover, Sorry that you seem to have been ignored. I have been working a lot of hours at the hospital and only get on here once a week. If you want to send me a PM regarding the teaser in question, I'll go take a look at it and see what I can do. If it's already been rejected, please send me a note and resubmit it with the new category and we'll see if that works. Again, sorry for not getting to you sooner.

I wish I could sleep... but my mind starts to wander, and well, basically, one sheep, two sheep, cow, turtle, duck, Ol McDonald had a farm... HEEEY Macarena!!!
