Is the thing about a comma before "and" in a list, such as
helium, neon, and argon
not
helium, neon and argon

a little pedantic if you don't mind me asking? I've had quizzes returned JUST for that and is it really worth waiting 2 months to have it returned for something nbody will even notice? It's not a major grammar error or anything

Anyone who submits a quiz needs to follow the Quiz Making Guidelines:
Use commas to separate three or more words or phrases written in a series. Don't forget the last comma before the conjunction; it isn't optional. "I like grapes, apples, and oranges."

The QuizMasters don't pick and choose which rules to follow; we ensure quizzes follow all the guidelines.

Quizmaster selection:
You must have a Quiz Creator Grade and Quiz Corrector Grade of at least a B.
What is a quiz corrector grade?

When you see errors in a quiz, you can correct them as follows:
After you take a quiz, there is a "Problems?" link after each question.
There is also a "Problems with Title or Category?" link at the top of the quiz.
Depending on whether your correct was valid or not, you get a grade.
