Picture Quizzes on JetPunk

"It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law."
- Hofstadter's Law

Originally promised by the of the year, and then "in a couple weeks" ever since, the JetPunk photo quiz editor is finally here!

Please give it a try and let me know what you think.

Warning: we are a one-person shop, and this was a pretty massive undertaking, so there will be bugs.

Also, after submitting a quiz, slightly changing the title, and then attempting to resubmit, it just never finishes trying to submit?

I am really loving the whole interface for the editor though, really really cool and intuitive!

This has been fixed. The changes should be live now. Nice quiz, BTW.

"Originally promised by the of the year, and then 'in a couple weeks' ever since, the JetPunk photo quiz editor is finally here!" I notice something wrong in this sentence. Answer this question: When does the "the of the year" occur? Just wondering

Wow, I need to make picture quizzes again, that looks fantastic. P.S. I like the idea of allowing to define a thumbnail on your own :)

So you got over your fear of people using copyrighted images? How do you get around that?

We only allow images from sites that grant explicit permission for reuse. Check it out and you will see.

I just found out.. :-( found and sorted a bunch of pictures I wanted to upload. Got into the quiz editor and started making the quiz. Went to upload the pictures and... nope...

They only allow me to upload 5 images as a new member. Have to wait until those are approved. I wonder how difficult it will be to search for them once uploaded.

I would tag them with my name so that they would be easier to search up but that's against the rules there so might lead to photos not getting approved.

I used Wikicommons instead of the other site. It was much simpler and it worked. Though... I named all the pictures with things that give away the answers. Is it not possible to hide the attribution while taking the quiz?

We do plan on offering a direct upload option in the future, but it will be only available to approved users. It's not possible to hide attribution, sorry.

I made a 2nd quiz. This time the pictures I uploaded I did not title with such give-away names. But... when I go to preview the quiz none of the picture or answers show up. Some help?

Is there any way to make the zoomed images larger? When I try it and click the pictures to enlarge they are barely larger than they were in the first place.

I tried to increase the image size by making it variable and it seems exactly the same.

Got it to blow up the pics a little in the regular view, so there are 2 per line instead of 3, but still the zoom seems inadequate.

When you upload an image we create a few different sizes the maximum of which is 450px. So that's the size that is displayed on a click, and it's also the largest size allowed in variable sizing. We're a low profit / low ad site so we have to keep server costs reasonable.

If they take the time to click on the attribution link, go to WikiCommons, then click on the picture, then zoom... they can see some extreme detail.

One problem I've noticed is that picture quizzes that are not featured have the recommended quiz is called "Suggested Quiz" which then brings you to the "File Not Found" page.

Another problem is the humongous time it takes to upload a quiz. If things could be moderated quicker, it would definitely help.

A problem I've noticed, sometimes "preview" doesn't work properly and won't update. Copying the quiz helped to update, but then it wouldn't update again. Upon posting the quiz, it did actually update though.

I made my first quiz using the picture quiz editor (Painters by Self-Portrait). Preview does not work, it shows only the first picture of 16 and I can not change from yellow box to without yellow box. i mean I can, but when I resubmit the quiz it is the same thing like before the change.

The quiz will work when you click submit, it appears that preview is broken somehow though. As long as it looks right in the editor, then it should look right when you click submit!

This is nice! You should also add foods, so we could do like a guess the food quiz or something. But still, I love this new edition to Jetpunk.
