Chart lovers can now create Bar Charts! When creating a chart, you can select the chart type in Step 1 on the right hand side. You also have the choice of bar width and whether to stack multiple series ontop each other.

You can create charts by going to "Create" in the navigation bar and then clicking the green button "Create Chart".

January 14th

Introducing Series Analytics! Now, when Premium members use Quiz Analytics they can select "Series Report" to get the total takes by day for all quizzes in a selected series.

Note: When first running for a series it can be slow, and bigger series will take longer

January 8th

Rejoice! Numbered quizzes and blogs in series will now be sorted correctly, regardless of where the number appears in the title. You will have to resave your series to apply the change.

We also added the option for blog series to have the order of the blogs manually changed, simply go to the blog series page and click "Reorder". Note: due to technical restraints, modifying the series through the "Manage Series" page will reset the order.

January 5th

Thanks to a massive collaboration between many members of our French community, I am pleased to present Anecdotes! The French version of "Interesting Facts"! It also comes with its own Chercher des anecdotes (aka search page).

Mar 2, 2022
I had an idea that might not possible, but just curious if there's anyw ay to do it. I've seen some cool informational as well as fun maps on places like Reddit or Instagram and I thought it would be cool if JP had it's own mapping feature, just to share informational maps, like blogs or charts. It could have a unique JetPunk style and some features using the standard SVGs of a few different maps. To start off there could just be color coding. Is this possible?
+1
Level 68
Mar 2, 2022
Do you mean like a blogs section but similar to r/dataisbeautiful?
+1
Level 65
Mar 2, 2022
Yes, similar to the blog section, but more like the Map subreddits, or like the website MapChart. Based on the standard JP SVG with colors and some other features to show information. So yeah, kind of like r/dataisbeautiful also.

I can draw an idea of how it could look if you want.

+1
Level 68
Mar 2, 2022
Ohhh you mean more than a feed for others to see, but a way to actually edit the map colours and add information to it?

That would work if you're only using JetPunk standard SVGs

+1
Level 65
Mar 2, 2022
Yes, a way to edit the map to show info, and upload them to a feed like the RUB. I think it's fine if it just has standard SVGs, but can it be done?

Level 68
Mar 2, 2022
It is definitely doable yes, it's not a priority for now, but I'll add it to the backlog of ideas!

Level 60
Mar 12, 2022
Lol, I've had the same idea for months, but I haven't suggested it yet. I thought about having a map with dots (for cities e.g) and when you clicked on the dot it told you info.

If that doesn't make sense, you might do a map for say European landmarks. One dot might be in Paris for the Eiffel Tower, and when you.clickee on it, it shows you information that the map maker had written about it.

That probably doesn't make sense I'm terrible at explaining things!

+1
Level 68
Mar 12, 2022
That makes sense yes. It definitely goes hand-in-hand with the above situation.

I'm unable to see the analytics for my quizzes. Earlier, when I used to click on "See analytics for this quiz", it used to show a graph which showed how many takes I have got within a day. But now, it shows "This is not your quiz!" error.

But about 1st question, doesn’t JetPunk collect the data of place of residence with Google Analytics?

Level 68
Mar 13, 2022
Yes, but I'm not at home right now so can't check
+2
Level 35
Mar 13, 2022
And last question: Does Google Analytics track the last time certain user accessed JetPunk?
+2
Level 68
Mar 13, 2022
No, users are not accessible to Google analytics. The only way I could do this is if exactly one user were from a place. E.g. if you were the only person from Minas Gerais, then everytime that place shows up I would know it is you, otherwise I have no way to tell.
+2

Alright then!

But now I have a problem. For some reason, I can access all JetPunk pages, but none of my blogs. They are completely blank!

Perhaps the misspelling was to trick you into looking elsewhere for the word… or maybe it was a very unfortunate coincidence caused by the unfortunate placement of the vertical words lined up next to each other… who knows?

Mar 20, 2022
I know this might not be a good thing to ask but why haven't I got a spotlight award yet? If I recall correctly, I crossed the level 50 or higher requirement some 4-5 months ago and have completed more than a year on the website yet I haven't got one. Is this pure (bad) luck or am I not looking for it where I should have?
+2
Level 68
Mar 20, 2022
I have checked, and:

  • Yes, you are eligible. And no you don't currently have one.
  • There are over 8000 users eligible, and at the moment there are so many spotlights in the pipeline that only 5-10 users are being selected each day.
  • The reason for this, is because there are over 10,000 unused spotlights, mostly from inactive users, but some from active users as well, and with increased traffic recently, many of those users have come back and used them, thus reducing the number of new users being awarded.
  • Being level 50, you only get one ballot. Every 10 levels you get an extra ballot, so a level 90 in English will get 5 ballots, giving them 5 times the chance of you. There are currently only 15,000 ballots being run each time.

So overall it's not bad luck you haven't got it, but it's more just you haven't been one of the lucky few to get it.

+1
Level 60
Mar 21, 2022
I didn't quite understand the fourth point. What's this ballot system? Does it mean that higher the level one has, higher the chances they have to get a spotlight award? Or is it the no. of awards one receives?
+3
Level 68
Mar 21, 2022
Higher chance. So every time the script to pick a random eligible person is run, every person gets 1 ballot, but every 10 levels you get an extra ballot. So at level 60 you'd have your name in the pot twice, instead of once, doubling your chance to get a spotlight.
+1
Level 55
Mar 21, 2022
now i feel bad that I have gotten 2 spotlights lol

also I would also like to ask a question. If you get level 50 in another language do you get an extra ballot as well, and if you level up to level 60 in a language, is that another ballot as well?

+1
Level 68
Mar 21, 2022
No, you can only spotlight English quizzes so it would be nonsensical to allow non-English levels to have an effect.

Mar 23, 2022
Reminds me of the Hunger Games system for the Reaping lol.

I have three questions

1. Do spotlights become voided after a couple months of inactivity?

2. How often does QM cull users, and what are the qualifications for being culled?

3. How lucky is it that I got a spotlight on my fifth day of meeting the qualifications…

+2
Level 68
Mar 23, 2022
1. Never, spotlights remain active even if never used

2. Never, we don't cull users

3. Very lucky indeed

+1
Level 55
Mar 22, 2022
Can you possibly make a setting or something to allow or disallow notifications for groups? All groups normally die out within around 2-3 days since people forget and leave them inactive.
+1
Level 56
Mar 23, 2022
That would be cool, as so members would get notifications too.
+1
Level 68
Mar 23, 2022
Group comments notifications isn't possible with the current technical setup, and would also cause absolute havoc in groups.
+1
Level 65
Mar 24, 2022
What about having a bell or emoji next to each group with unread messages?
+1
Level 68
Mar 24, 2022

Could we have the ability of make tables, like what we have with charts (e.g., your and Quizmaster tables on Info Page). Or do you advice us doing a quiz and substituting all cells to text cells?
+2
Level 68
Mar 30, 2022
I plan to eventually add tables to blogs anyway, just a bit busy right now
+1
Level 35
Mar 30, 2022
Yes, it would be good, but I meant making tables only. Not doing a whole blog for a single table, but like the info pages. But I’m super in favor of adding tables in blogs :)
+1
Level 68
Mar 30, 2022
Making a new editor is a very large task (Charts took QM 2 months for example). Doing this for ""tables"" would be utterly pointless in my opinion, since there would be no justifiable reason for them. Charts themselves are massively under-used, and the tables on info pages.... well almost nobody even reads the info pages. So no, I'm not making a whole new editor just for ""tables"".

Why are you so against making a "whole blog" for a table? Do you have some unjustified prejudice against shorter blogs? Or even informational ones?

+2
Level 35
Mar 30, 2022
Yes, you’re right.

Well, I’m not against short blogs, even because you don’t need to write 50k characters in a blog. The point, is that short blogs and this type of table can bring spam to RUB, like what happened on badge era, where the most of blogs were tables of badges from the HTML code of Pandora49. If someone start doing this type of table in the blog, can bring a flux of new users trying the same. But, thinking now, with the more rigid rules with spam and toxicity, this can have a less """""impact""""" at RUB

+4
Level 68
Mar 30, 2022
And why do you think the badge blogs were spam?

I don't think calling any "trend" in the RUB that you dislike "spam" is a particularly fair or nice thing to do.

This is a very minor aesthetic thing, but you know how you added subdivisions to some of the countries on the places you’ve visited map?

Maybe it would be possible to like remove the borders between subdivisions you haven’t visited.

Like If you visited Victoria and New South Wales, it wouldn’t show the borders between the other provinces you haven’t visited.

Even if this isn’t something you want to do, thank you! You do so much for this site and I mean it really is amazing how you still take the time to see random requests from users on the change log.

+2
Level 68
Apr 11, 2022
Scramble quizzes have actually been around for about 9 years! It was only 3 years ago when they became "eassier" to make, before that you had to copy a featured quiz to make one.

Unfortunately I cannot change the algorithm for it since it would have unexpected consequences on other quizzes.

The new GUI is pretty cool, but I don't think Random should have its own button. I'm not sure how many people use it, if anything User / Featured Quizzes should get its own button, with Random under Featured Quizzes.

I think the Social page would make more sense under About JetPunk. In addition, I think About JetPunk should go to the bottom or at least under Data & Charts and Blogs, since those are similar to creating quizzes.

Finally, I think the blog section should be plural, given that it includes multiple blogs and that Data & Charts is plural. Maybe Official Blog should be plural too, since Official Blog implies there's only one entry, at least to me.

Thank you for all the work you do!

I finally have stats on the Random button!

So overall, the Random button is currently clicked about 400,000 times each day, and contributes to 10% of all the takes on the site. So yes, it is very heavily used.

Random is under Featured for Mobile version purposes.

"Blog" here can be used as meaning a single blog post, or a person's blog, and since it is "Official Blog" is means the latter, referring to a collection of Blog Posts. I'll consider the other options.

Unfortunately I cannot reproduce your issue.

Are you mobile or desktop?

What do you call the "side bar" here.

Did you do anything before taking the quiz?

Is this related to the new menu somehow?

How does the grid get cut?

+1
Level 35
Apr 15, 2022
Actually, I neither know what is “side bar”. You said before it was the place where you put the answers, and then I started used it to simplify. I didn’t do anything as “unusual”, and this happened after the change, which I supposed being a glitch, but apparently this is only an internal problem.

I recorded a video to explain what I mean, but I couldn’t send it on here, so, I’m gonna send by another way.

+1
Level 68
Apr 15, 2022
You can email it to me if that's easier.

By "side bar", I mean the right-hand column of "stuff" on desktop. So, on the quiiz editor, this is where you have "Insert Answers" (what i thought you mentioned before) as well as the step buttons. For a quiz page itself, this is where "hot quizzes" are, as well as link to series and tags.

For mobile, this doesn't exist in the same way.

+1
Level 35
Apr 15, 2022
I literally didn’t say I was going to send by email because you told some months ago for don’t share publicly lol

So, the scrolling up-down issue is happening on the quiz itself, not in the editor. I told about the editor for some reason to explain the “scrolling left-right” point (which was working normally on the quiz I used as example). Apparently, is an internal issue with my browser, but I didn’t do anything of different, and this started after the update :)

I found a problem with the new UI when you login with your account.

When I login to my account, the shield surrounding the level your account is disappears until you go to a new page on the website, and the 0 in the notifications occurs when you have an unread comment that was sent when your account was not logged into, and does not get fixed until you check on your notification page. When you don't have any new comments while your account was logged out of, it works perfectly fine.

P.S. I only added the image because I am horrible at explaining things :/

If you go to another tab and leave a quiz running the timer keeps running for exactly 10 seconds or so on its own and then stops while you are in a new tab, which basically just acts as a pause button until you re-enter the quiz tab. This shouldn't really be a problem for quick and easy quizzes, but it might be for longer timed quizzes since JetPunk only allows 3 pauses of a quiz per play. This has been on the site for a while, but just in case :)
+2
Level 68
Apr 21, 2022
This is out of our control because pages remain active for 10 seconds before browsers stop them running certain code. (E.g. videos and audio are not stopped).

Your ids are on the "text" node, but you have a fill attribute on the "tspan" node which is inside it, and so it is never overriding it.

A simple solution would be to change the CSS used to be:

.svg-holder .svg-correct tspan { fill: ... }

.svg-holder .svg-incorrect tspan { fill: ... }

This way, in this specific case, the css should work OK.
