JetPunk Change Log

Sometimes we change the way things work on JetPunk. Here's a place to make a note of these changes. Click on each month to expand or collapse the changes for that month.
January 2021
January 16th

We've added picture choices to Multiple Choice quizzes, simply select the green image icon and select a picture, then it will appear as a choice instead of text!

You can also choose the layout of the choices now, as well as having up to 8 options instead of 6!

January 9th

We added Super Tables to many more pages, including All Featured Quizzes and Recent User-Quizzes.

January 8th

You can now schedule a quiz to be in a series once released. To do this, schedule a quiz as normal and then select a series from the selection box in the scheduler window. The quiz will be added to the series immediately after scheduling.

January 3rd

We added more regions and updated the user countries map shown on users' profiles. You can edit your own map here: Edit Countries Visited Map.

A massive thank you to IAB whose subdivision maps were a massive help in getting this update done

December 2020
December 29th

You can now search and filter quizzes on the Create Quiz page by type and language.

December 19th

Today we added a way for user's to add tags to their French quizzes. Originally, French tags were only given by Stewart or Quizmaster, but now we have given the option for Premium french users to access this feature for their quizzes as well. Note that French tags are not fully created yet, so if a tag doesn't exist right now, it may do in the future.

If you have French quizzes, a new button on "Create" at the top will appear for you to add tags to your French quizzes. Alternatively visit this page.

December 11th

Quizmaster released a new minigame, and this time evil demons are, yet again, trying to destroy the United States!

Try your hand at putting back together the U.S. in our U.S. State Puzzle minigame!

December 5th

For all Geography Snap fans, you can now enjoy Capital Cities alongside your usuals for the game. We've also expanded the game modes so you can select any combination of categories you wish!

December 4th

Due to spam, users will now only be able to submit one blog post per 24 hours.

November 2020
November 17th

We've made some changes to the navigation bar at the top of the site to reduce crowding and allow for future additions.

November 16th

We've made some improvements to Multiple Choice Quizzes, including the option to randomize questions!

We also added importing and exporting, akin to Text and Map quizzes, so you can export your quiz to a spreadsheet, as well as then importing a quiz from a spreadsheet. To see the formatting for this, try exporting a Multiple Choice quiz to see.

November 12th

You can now see all series created by a user. This is linked on their user profile and on each of their series pages.

November 10th

You can now see quizzes collaborated with you on the Create / Edit Quiz page. To uncollaborate from any quiz, simply click the button on the end of its row.

November 5th

Today the index of information pages was updated with a modernized appearance.

November 2nd

You can now see the answer stats for an SVG quiz on the map! These are color-coded based on % guessed, just visit and quiz's stats page (that has an SVG and is non-randomized) to see it.

If this conflict continues, then Stewart and Quizmaster won't know whether people like this. It obviously took a long time to do, and as much as opinions are welcome, wars in the comments are very unnecessary. Appreciate the work they did and be happy. This is JetPunk: a friendly, happy quiz site!

Obviously it was changed to make accessibility easier, and that was achieved. Thank you to Stewart and Quizmaster for your epic improvement of the site!

Nov 17, 2020
It's nice to see a refresh. It means the creators are putting effort into the site, and it also means they aren't afraid of change. I imagine this also means more refreshes will come in the future to continue to modernize. I just wish Jeppy would be unsquished :(

Level 46
Nov 17, 2020
Yeah, the squished Jeppy thing is really the only problem, and it's a very minor one at that.

Level 51
Nov 17, 2020
I like the new update! A few suggestions to improve it: Maybe swap the "More" and "Create" links up at the top? And (I know this might take a while to do) maybe make it so that when you click on the bell, it won't redirect you to a different link, but instead will have it "embedded" as a dropdown? That would be really neat! Thanks for the great work once again Stewart & QM! :)

Level 66
Nov 17, 2020
I'm sure everyone complains every time the style of the website changes, but I really don't like it. :(

I'm sure if it stays like this I will get used to it, but the old way of having the top right look was way better.

Level 68

I actually quite like the new format changes!

Level 20
Nov 18, 2020
I know this is an extremely bold idea, and it has an extremely "no" as answer (lol), but, have you thought, at least try to put an audio description on some JetPunk locations?
+1
Level 72
Nov 18, 2020
What do you mean?
+1
Level 20
Nov 18, 2020
@HinesBrothers, I mean, if Quizmaster or Stewart already thought about putting an audio description tab to help the reading of Jetpunker’s with vision problems, or total blindness. Some official sites of the Brazilian government have audio description, or reading in pounds. I find it an interesting and daring idea, besides being inclusive, of course. But I think one of them will say no. On second thought, audio description would be in English, and there may be visually impaired people, from other nations, who do not understand English.
+1
Level 68
Nov 18, 2020
Actually most visually impaired already have screen readers which work for all text on the page anyway. Also adding audio files would be a massive workload, especially with a lot of non-English users here.
+1
Level 20
Nov 19, 2020
Understood. Thanks!

Level 66
Nov 18, 2020
I just noticed the "random" button is now a lot more inconvenient. I'm sure JetPunk has made thousands of dollars from me hitting that button over and over to keep reloading the page, and now I feel like using that button has been discouraged. Would you reconsider this decision?
+1
Level 66
Nov 18, 2020
It's now there! I think this is a great decision! Literally like an hour after I posted this!

Level 68
Nov 18, 2020
See! We're not monsters guys, we see your complaints and we do consider them. Sometimes your suggestions get implemented, and other times they don't. But it's all part of the challenge of developing a massive site like JetPunk, you have to prioritise workload and decided which suggestions are viable and which are not. :)

Sporcle is a much larger site with a much higher prevalence on the internet. It is no surprise they're allowed a wiki page.
+3
Level 20
Nov 20, 2020
A suggestion: Can you (Stewart or Quizmaster) put the blog category in the search bar? I think that it's a good idea, because if someone write a blog (user 1), and another user already wrote this blog (user 2), the user 2 can accuse user 1 of plagiarism, which would not be an arable experience... I think that would make it easier for many people here...

In addition, if you want to search for a blog on a specific topic (let's assume the Geography of Yugoslavia), you will have to search all the blogs you find, until you get to the chosen topic. I know that JetPunk does not revolve around blogs, but I think it is an idea to consider.

+1
Level 34
Nov 20, 2020
agree

This will likely be added whenever blogs are improved on in the future. As you know that's not a priority in itself, but I do want to include this as well.

There should thumbnail on series page.

Nov 21, 2020
This is an interesting idea, although it would take a lot of work since the thumbnail and photo editor system is quite a complicated system, hence why it is only used on quizzes and blogs.

How can I get to the Subscribed Users Quizzes page now?

This has been renamed to "Your Subscriptions" underneath the user dropdown. Its original name didn't really make much sense, so it was renamed to match the rest of that dropdown thematically.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norfolk_Southern–Gregson_Street_Overpass

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beatosu_and_Goblu

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rinderkennzeichnungs-_und_Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz

These are all articles, that are approved on wikipedia, but I feel are less relevant than jetpunk.

The first url is about a bridge in North Carolina, that supposedly is short, but I have a shorter bridge 0.5 mi away from my residence that I couldn’t find an article about!

The second article is about two Non- existent Towns in Ohio. So If I wrote an article about Flugenshlaff, Arizona(a non-existent town) They’d approve it, but disapprove jetpunk?

The third one is about a German beef label, which I’m sure, is less relevant than jetpunk.

This evidence should prove your case for a jetpunk wiki.

Level 34
Nov 25, 2020
Say this to Wikipedia directly not to jetpunk
+1
Level 57
Nov 25, 2020
As Stewart mentioned above, there has been several attempts at a Wikipedia page for JetPunk, all of which has failed. The team of users that was working on this project have moved on.

For reference, I believe the most recent copy of the JetPunk Wikipedia article was rejected for being too much like a promotional article instead of an informational one. Feel free to edit the draft linked above but again, no guarantees.

EDIT: Apparently the draft for the page was declined once more and entirely rejected outright. I would assume now the only way to get a Wikipedia page is to promote the website itself.

+1
Level 57
Nov 25, 2020
As for the 3 articles you mentioned above:

The Norfolk Railway Bridge is online famous for Truck crashes and collisions. Videos of that bridge have amass over 50 million views, which safe to say earns it a Wikipedia page.

The fictional towns of Beatosu and Goblu are historically important to University of Michigan and the Ohio State University. They were publish across maps as a publicity stunt. The town of Flugenshlaff, Arizona has no importance whatsoever, and probably would not get approved.

The beef label is actually an important law that, while famous for it's long name, controls the supervision of beef products in Germany.

+1
Level 43
Nov 25, 2020
Still bough, extremely irrelevant, truck crashes happen on many bridges.
+1
Level 51
Dec 8, 2020
Yeah, the article-making system on Wikipedia is a bit weird. An extreme example is this:

There's a city with 2 people, which is located close to where I live, and I do not know anybody that knows this city. Wikipedia has an article on that.

HOWEVER, there was never an article about the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, an important treaty that gave Texas and other parts of Mexico to the US after the Spanish-American War. There's literally a BrainPOP video on it. The article was created only recently though.

For the sake of my own privacy, I'm actually kind of glad there ISN'T a JetPunk page on Wikipedia. That said, I do think it's odd that they would reject it. 🤷

Dec 3, 2020
@Quizmaster they rejected it because there weren't enough sources listed to make it. :(

There should be ability to add question of all type

("Test quiz"

"Picture quiz"

"Multiple choice quiz"

"Tile select quiz") in on quiz

+1
Level 68
Nov 26, 2020
I've thought about this in the past, and it would be a massive undertaking. All the quiz types are completely separate and use completely different mechanisms, combining them together would be likely months of work for very little gain.

@TheLocalMilkMan: "...having the profile button be circular with a default blank profile picture without being able to put a profile Picture ticks me off..."

@GeoPhilia: "...When for the first I saw it, my instant thought was that they added profile pics on JetPunk, and cause I had none at that moment, it was the default profile pic..."

I saw these comments in the blog of @mundidades. I agree totally with them. When we are going to have profile pictures?

+1
Level 20
Nov 28, 2020
@Quizmaster, or @Stewart, if you aren’t busy, can you answer?
+3
Level 68
Nov 28, 2020
I believe that profile pictures are unnecessary on JetPunk. We're not a social media, and allowing profile pictures would open that door too much to other options. Pictures themselves would have to be copyright free, and would also need to be moderated. It also makes the comments section look a lot more cluttered.

It's not inherently bad, but I don't think it's suitable for JetPunk.

+1
Level 20
Nov 28, 2020
OK

Level 34
Dec 1, 2020
There should be ability to add quiz into multiple series

Dec 1, 2020
This is already planned, but is low priority since it's quite a large task to undertake.
+1
Level 34
Dec 3, 2020
What about ability to add schedule in blog.
+2
Level 68
Dec 4, 2020
Scheduling quizzes only came in last year, and that was after 11 years of quizzes. Blogs only released last year, so scheduling won't be a priority at all. Also, less than 0.1% of all quizzes are scheduled. If you apply that to blogs, you'd get 1 blog scheduled per year, which is not worth the time.
+1
Level 35
Dec 5, 2020
Thank you a lot for the new update to limit spam blogs! It was really necessary.
+1
Level 61
Dec 5, 2020
I would recommend blog guidelines to be added. Instagate said that before he was banned he had no warning. That is unfair to be honest. Like a pop-up when creating a user’s first blog I think would be fine.

Dec 10, 2020
I agree.

Dec 6, 2020
Maybe add a feature that allows you to get points if you took a quiz before it got featured without having to take it again.
+1
Level 68
Dec 6, 2020
This already happens, the "issue" is many quizzes have questions changed / modified when they are featured, which causes them to have their stats reset.

Dec 8, 2020
I just realised there was a "Total" levels option in my public profile page. How is this level calculated?
+1
Level 68
Dec 8, 2020
This is simply total points converted to a level using the standard points table. It had to be done this way due to issues with adding levels together.
+1
Level 20
Dec 9, 2020
If you can (IF YOU CAN!), It would be nice to see Jeppy with a Christmas hat! I also thought that they would put some ornaments here, others there, but I think the page would be very loaded. So, who knows how to see Jeppy with a Christmas hat for the current three weeks?
+1
Level 43
Dec 9, 2020
If that happens, I'll just wait for people to complain it's biased towards Christians...
+2
Level 68
Dec 10, 2020
Don't worry, something like that wouldn't happen because we have a very diverse community, so selectively supporting a Christian holiday like that would be unfair.
+1
Level 43
Dec 10, 2020
Maybe make the number of points for 100 percent 7, so its possible to get to level 99
+1
Level 68
Dec 10, 2020
Not gonna happen, points have always been out of 5, and changing that would lead to mass confusion
+1
Level 20
Dec 10, 2020
@Quizmaster or @Stewart, I would like to know how I access my subscribers, that is, the people who signed up for my account. I can only see the accounts I signed up for...
+3
Level 68
Dec 10, 2020
Personally I've always seen this as a privacy issue. You can't interact with your subscribers at all, and the reason for subscribing to somebody is purely for notifications, not for popularity or anything.

So, plainly, whoever subscribes to you is none of your business.

+2
Level 20
Dec 10, 2020
Ok
+1
Level 43
Dec 10, 2020
Is there a reason that some pages appear to have no comments, but then when you comment, you can see the rest of them?
+2
Level 68
Dec 10, 2020
Do you have an example? The only reason I can think is that other people commented between the time you loaded the page and you commenting. Since, after commenting, all comments are redrawn, we don't just draw your comment. So if somebody comments before you, but after you loaded the page, it would appear after you comment.
+2
Level 43
Dec 10, 2020
It notably happens to me on the first page of the facts or quotes. Also on the charts overview page. There are hardly ever new comments; can't see that being the case.

Dec 11, 2020
Ah yes, I see what the issue is now. I'll get that fixed soon :)

Dec 16, 2020
Can you add an ability to allow us to place our own maps in the Dot Placer? Not just the COTW ore continent maps.
+1
Level 43
Dec 16, 2020
That would be impossible (or if not, terribly hard) without the addition of coordinates on your custom maps.
+1
Level 43
Dec 16, 2020
Oh Yeah, you are right.
+1
Level 68
Dec 16, 2020
Yeah I thought about this when I did the SVG update. Each custom SVG would need to know its coordinate system. Which means at the very least we need to know the projection, the scale in both x and y as well as a focal point (e.g. 0,0). And unfortunately, almost everybody won't know this information about their SVGs.

Thus, it is impossible to do meaningfully.

+1
Level 51
Jan 11, 2021
Unless if you could maybe have a collection of high-quality country maps to use in the dot placer? I don't mean all countries, but maybe like the UK, Canada, France, etc.
+1
Level 68
Jan 11, 2021
If we did that, we'd need to manually input and adjust the scaling and translation of the projection to get the dots to line up perfectly. This took about half an hour at least of tinkering for each continent when I did the SVG update. On top of that we'd need to create high quality maps of those countries in the first place, then we'd also add them as a JetPunk SVG, which is more added work.

All in all it's a lot of work for minimal gains, and would probably be easier for users to simply use the continent map, then enlarge it in Inkscape and remove the excess countries. This is a fairly simple process, even for new users at SVGs.

Posted this on the Interesting Facts page and someone said to put it here instead:

Just a thought, maybe on the interesting facts page there could be (similar to the heart button for comments) like an interesting button or something, idk what to call it. And you could like see which facts people found the most interesting. Sorry don't know how to phrase it.

Level 20
Dec 17, 2020
I thought of some ideas. I don't know if they are efficient, or complex, but here we go: Well @Stewart, I thought that when writing usernames in comments, accompanied by @ or +, they could appear on the new comments page. My second idea is to be able to add your own images via Imgbb or any personal image upload site, such as thumbnails or Picture Quizzes images. My last idea is to include other blogs on the featured JetPunk blogs. I like several user blogs, which have good formatting and content. It would be nice to see them highlighted, and it is another reason for me to request the inclusion of the blogs category in the search tab. I think that's it. I wait the answer!
+1
Level 68
Dec 17, 2020
The first one won't happen, because it would be so easily abused and leads the way to "reply notifications" which we've previously discussed and don't want for JetPunk as it would cause many arguments.

The second is a major copyright issue, as users would just reupload any images they want which could get JetPunk into legal trouble (which we don't have the funds to deal with, so a serious copyright breach could shut JetPunk down entirely).

The final one is out of my control, the only way to do featured blogs is directly in the database, and currently I don't have direct access to the live database. However, when we eventually do a blogs update I plan to do a search function, along with a "verified" page of sorts that would act as an in between of "featured" and "all" blogs.

+2
Level 20
Dec 17, 2020
Ok @Stewart, and about this: I know that the new minigame of puzzle isn’t available for play in mobile, but can you upload the comments for mobile?

So there are a few Mandarin and Japanese quizzes already, but the traffic for those isn't there (yet?).

Blogs will be worked on sometime, not quite yet though. (I have lots of ideas)

Not sure on more types of quizzes, we don't have plans for that yet, but who knows! After all we didn't have plans for 3 nee minigames in 2020 yet here we are!

+1
Level 20
Dec 26, 2020
Anxious for it @Stewart! Very anxious! And ok, I ask because I only do quizzes in Portuguese and English, and the only idioms that I know, appear in the homepage. I didn’t find Mandarin and Japanese. You have many ideas yeah? This is a light in the darkness 😁!

And I’m anxious for new minigames! Maybe one, like Even Split, that you need to organize random events in the history by order of date? Or one that you need to unscramble countries, states or capitals in the faster time?

And hear, I know that is wish to much, but let’s go. I plan a series of quizzes of state quizzes, but translated in Portuguese. And Quizmaster created then original ones. I don’t have his email, neither a email (the only that I have, is of school, but I can’t send an email for him). Despite this, he is to much occupied for answer me in JetPunk. As you are the most next JetPunker (and has a company with him), maybe you say to QM my idea, and he answer? ‘Cause I don’t want to explore the copyright...

+1
Level 68
Dec 26, 2020
So Japanese are on the front page, also found here.

Don't expect new minigames anytime soon, they take unique thoughts which don't occur often.

On the Portuguese states quizzes, I believe IAB was planning on doing them for Brazil and Portugal, to be featured after the country quizzes are complete. However I don't know the status of that so you should ask them (comment on their quizzes). There wouldn't be a copyright issue since QM's are US states not Portuguese states.

+1
Level 20
Dec 26, 2020
Yes Stewart, it is usually the IAB that does this type of questionnaire. But I think I explained it wrong. What I want to do is take the state quizzes (USA), which were made by Quizmaster, and make a version translated into Portuguese. So, yes, there would be copyright problems. The problem is that I don't have his email address, and what I have won't let me send him anything. Furthermore, he rarely sees any such comment, being a busy man. IAB has already made a Brazilian version, which would fit into plagiarism. I don't want to have these problems, and I asked you because you are the closest, and you can ask it easily. I don't want to plagiarize anyone, least of all the website creator, who can ban me. And I explained it wrong about HomePage. English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, blah blah blah blah, have their own homepage. In the case of the Japanese, there are only quizzes, and no home pages dedicated to them. But I didn't want a home page, so it's fine. Could you help me?
+1
Level 68
Dec 26, 2020
Oh right, well translating Quizmaster's quizzes are no problem at all as long as they're accurate and you credit with a link to the original in the caveat beneath the description. There's no need to ask him for that.

Also you wouldn't be banned for copyright, don't worry about that! You'd at worst have that single quiz hidden or removed, but never other quizzes or your account :)

I understand now, and unfortunately (for now) homepages are only for languages with points, and there's not enough quizzes in Japanese for them to be featured (let alone enough traffic to justify it)

Thanks for answering! And yes, I have the link in the warning, but about the "accurate", I think the explanation must be a little more accurate... lol! And well, thank God it wouldn't be banned! I had this fear because I love JetPunk, and before I screw up I would have to ask. And no problem! I am more concerned with state questionnaires than Japanese. Well, I had this objective to help in some things in the development of Portuguese, improve traffic, increase my number of quizzes (I'm using blogs more than usual...), and try to have some featured quizzes... Just explain to me the “accurate”, and I already thank Stewart!

Well, that’s yet. Question: IAB did a agreement with Quizmaster for do the country quizzes in Portuguese? I’m asking this, ‘cause every quiz of this series in Portuguese were created by him. And I try to do a Belgium Country Quiz (Portuguese), and the IAB ones (created after), were featured.

Level 20
Dec 27, 2020
Stewart, if you are occupied, sorry. When you can answer me, answer ok?
+1
Level 68
Dec 27, 2020
So the country quizzes are featured and organised by me for non-english. For some languages, it was just easier to ask a single person to translate them as it's easier for me to feature that way, means they are all easily found in the same series by the same user and to ensure they are correctly done. This was the case for Dutch, French, Finnish, German, Spanish and Portuguese. For Polish this was different as several users worked together to translate the series.

I did see your Belgium one, but I cannot remember why I didn't feature it, sorry.

(Just as a note, the U.S. state quizzes won't be featured in case you're wondering, since they're not suitable for featuring in Portuguese. We don't automatically feature all translations, but only ones that are suitable in that language)

+1

Dec 27, 2020
Ok, and no problem! I was going to delete my Belgium one. But it’s really good @Stewart? I’m gonna try to do something adequate for the idiom. Maybe the Brazilian capitals trivia series?

fyi, you don't have to confirm ideas with me before you make them :P

You can just make quizzes as you wish, then if they're well-received we can consider whether to feature any of them. I don't think presidents of brazil would be featured though, since there's little in English comparable to that. That shouldn't stop you from making it though.

Also, please don't tick the "this comment contains a correction or suggestion for the Quizmaster" box when referring to me, since I'll see the comment in notifications anyway, and I don't look at the comments for Quizmaster often.

+1
Level 20
Dec 29, 2020
Ok. But the about the series of the Brazilian Presidents, I’m gonna do in Portuguese. I’m asking these specific ones, because I think that are good series and relevant for the idiom. And sometimes that I mark “This comment contains a correction blah blah blah”, you answer, or when I type “Stewart”. But OK, thanks for the advice.
+1
Level 68
Dec 29, 2020
Yeah I'm just saying that I've been replying regardless of checking that box "this comments contains etc...". That box is only for Quizmaster, not for me. For me you just comment as normal and I'll reply normally.

This is because Quizmaster gets too many comments to read them all so relies on the "this comments contains etc..." box, whereas I check all my comments from notifications, as well as from all non-quiz/blog pages, so I always see when someone asks something here.

+1
Level 20
Dec 29, 2020
I got it, but then, already imagining that this series would be irrelevant in English. I am thinking about this series after having kind of failed in the series of cities. I think I have a little more content to research about presidents. Well, I don't know if it will be an idea well received by the public. I think I would do a poll attached to my next blog.

But anyway, do you have any plans for after the Country Quizzes series? IAB thought about anything? I want to start this series soon, and who knows, and who knows, have a resource. I didn't find anything about it, and I think it will help in the development of the language, in addition to being relevant content in my opinion.

+1
Level 68
Dec 29, 2020
The current plans for after Country Quizzes in Portuguese are to do Brazil regions and then (maybe) Portugal regions. IAB has already done half the Brazil regions.

As I've already said, regarding other series of yours, I'm not guaranteeing any features before the quizzes are live. That's not how it works. You should make the series if you want to, and then I can take a look and see whether they're suitable for featuring.

1. for what purpose? speed typing quizzes are frowned upon and reducing the 15 second limit would encourage more of those

2. adding quizzes to a badge is complicated, as what we don't unaward badges, so users that have the badge may not have completed all the requirements for it

3. could you elaborate a bit more on this? I'm not sure what you mean

4. RSA has been discussed above, and isn't happening. Primarily because if you type "RSA" on google, it isn't even on the first page of results so is not used enough to justify it. The latter is not necessary to add as only "vatican" is required for Vatican City.
