Thanks! My quizzes don't go into a pending status unless I make changes to the one I have that's for points. I don't know if I passed some kind of threshold or what. I'm very interested to see yours when it becomes available! Coming up with questions for this turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would, and took me the better part of a week to finish.
