Done. (And phew, I correctly remembered which was supposed to be the merger and which the mergee!)


message 3: by Banjomike (new)

Banjomike | 5529 comments Yay, hmm, sounds like you need some more practice.


Try this one:
http://www.goodreads.com/quizzes/take...
http://www.goodreads.com/quizzes/take...
They both have the same four questions but the later one, 543, has poorer grammer on question 1.


and then there is:
http://www.goodreads.com/quizzes/take...
http://www.goodreads.com/quizzes/take...
These appear to have identical questions.

Done.

rivka | 39988 comments Mod
Got it.

rivka | 39988 comments Mod

No sound effects? =[

<3 rivka for giving me a giggle with the sound effects. =)

You know, I've been thinking about that, and I'm not sure what sound effect(s) merging should have. Deleting is easy; merging is more subtle, or ought to be.

Maybe Batman can be of some help?

Hmm. Possibly, possibly. *bookmarks*

Both same, so pick any to keep"


I merged this one. For some reason, it was linking to an non-existent book.

Strange. You would not expect a shortage of Twilight books.

Banjomike | 5529 comments First one today,

** Keep the first one!

I think the bulk of the quiz list is now thoroughly merged. It should only be the odd new addition that needs fixing. Touch wood. 'Course that doesn't apply to the tags which are messed up on a continuing basis.

I think I will ask for a pay rise!

Incidentally, how come all this quiz fixing doesn't appear on the librarian stats?

120% of nothing is . . . well. ;)

It's not in the logs because logging quiz changes hasn't been added. Yet, anyway.


message 41: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 39988 comments Mod
Also, BLURP!


message 42: by Banjomike (new)

Banjomike | 5529 comments First merge for a few days although hidings are still popular,

** Keep the first one!

120% of nothing is still better than ... er, maybe not. At least we get a really cool T-shirt. Don't we?


message 43: by Cait (new)

Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Ka-pow!

Oh, the t-shirt, the invisible one with the invisible logo and the no-touch fabric? I love that t-shirt! Although I only wear it around the house. :)


message 44: by Banjomike (new)

Banjomike | 5529 comments I will wear mine while studying for the Super exam.


message 45: by Banjomike (new)

Banjomike | 5529 comments First merge for AGES,

No sign of my T-shirt yet.

Swoof!

Sorry, not my department.


message 47: by Banjomike (new)

Banjomike | 5529 comments Well, haven't had one of these for a while:
http://www.goodreads.com/quizzes/take...
http://www.goodreads.com/quizzes/take...
** Keep the first one!

Very little activity in the quiz department over the last 10 days or so. Bit odd.


message 48: by rivka, Librarian Moderator (new)

rivka | 39988 comments Mod
Got it.

The newness has worn off, I imagine. Either that, or someone was pushing for that 1000 mark.


message 49: by Banjomike (last edited Apr 01, 2010 10:10AM) (new)

Banjomike | 5529 comments That is not quite what I meant.

The most recently added quiz is number 1833.
The one at the bottom of the first page is 1617 (a difference of lots). On most pages the numbering, allowing for the normally large number of hides and merges are nearly consecutive).

I hid the next one after that on 17 March (Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga related). Then the usual rate of dross until the 19th. Then 3 hidden in the last two weeks, compared to the usual rates of 7 to 10 PER DAY, and 1 hide in the same two weeks. Plus the odd numbering of the quizzes that ARE being created.

Oh. That is odd.
