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?

Thanks.

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.

@spud,

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.

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?
