Comment Editing + RIP JetPunk Data

We are pleased to introduce our new feature: comment editing!

Now you will be able to edit your comments for up to 60 minutes after creating them. No more having to delete and re-type when you make a mistake.

Unfortunately, we are discontinuing one of our other features: JetPunk Data. What's that, you ask? Good question. Late in 2016 I spent the better part of a month collating tons of data for every country on Earth. Unfortunately, Google hated my work and refused to link to it. Traffic was basically non-existent. The data was getting stale and so it was time to spend dozens of hours updating it, or to simply delete it. The choice was easy.

We are planning on replacing it with pages like this. Let me know if there was anything you found useful on JetPunk data. If it's easy, I'll make a page for it.

That's great news! In the future, would it be possible to introduce a notification system that tells users when someone has replied to any of their comments on any quiz? It would be very useful.

Many people have asked for that, but its not going to happen.

The reason that our comments section is not a total wasteland is that I moderate comments. Since I value my sanity, I don't want people to argue back and forth. If we ever release a "pro" version, this might be a feature. In the mean time, maybe check out our SubReddit?

I wouldn't say it's not a total wasteland... "Total Wasteland" might be an understatement honestly...

Maybe you could make it so that way if you comment on a quiz, than the quiz maker comments back onto your comment you would get a notification. For example, maybe you make a comment that contains a correction or suggestion for the quiz maker, then they comment back saying they fixed, you would get a notification so you can now go back to the quiz and see how well you do now. Just an idea that I had.

Re: comments one feature I'd like to see added/removed/altered is to take away the "recent comments" thing... there are only a few dozen quizzes on the whole site that have more than 100 comments on them. And only a handful (Countries of the World) where there are so many people taking the quiz and so many comments that it makes sense to not display all of the comments.
The most annoying feature of this feature is that when you want to go back and read the older comments or reply to them.. first you take the quiz.. then you scroll all the way to the bottom past 100 comments to find the display all comments button.. then you scroll all the way back up past 200 comments to find the beginning... then you scroll down and find a comment you want to reply to... then when you reply it automatically takes you back to the limited view of the last 100 comments and the button to display all comments is disabled... so if you want to continue reading you have to reload the page and repeat.

Maybe change this so that the page displays the most recent 500 comments? 300? 200? Even 200 would help for almost every quiz, very few quizzes get more than 200 comments.

I think you may have already changed the way this works, maybe so that it's easier to edit a comment after you have left it? Anyway, that's better.

Hmm... Let me take a look. There has to be some limit. Before I put it in, the Countries of the World page exceeded 1 megabyte in size, but maybe 200 or 300 comments would be feasible.

This is a great feature. Literally yesterday I accidentally used the wrong kind of 'there' on a comment and had to add another comment correcting myself.

Other new updates - Quizzes without any comments will say a message next to the comments button - Comments button changed slightly - Number factoring game has black circles around the numbers There’s probably something else that I’m forgetting, so you can comment below if something else changed/added.

Shame about JetPunk Data. It was a reliable way of getting up to date information even if it was a year out of date. There aren't many other places where there was a bunch of data like that archived. On a side note, the comment editing thing is handy but I don't see myself using it because of Grammarly. It's probably tedious having to re-type your entire comment because of one spelling error though.
