I don't think people will want to take a quiz like this 126 questions long, I'd turn it into a bunch of quizzes 20 questions long or so

I didn't add anything. I just changed the title and it appeared on the recent user pages. I could make it into shorter series, but Idk. I'd be on number 26 or 27 if I did that. I may start doing it from now on.

I'm not sure I agree with you with your point about people wanting to take a quiz with 126 questions. I believe 13 minutes is sufficient time to take the quiz. I've seen quizzes with more questions and with more time, but people still take them (but saying that, they're all geographical and this quiz isn't). I'm not sure what I'll do in the future. Like I said in my previous question, the only thing I did was change the title. You probably only saw this quiz because it was in recent user created. I doubt you would've taken it if it wasn't there. But still, I'll have to decide what I'll do. The first quiz in the series has 57 takes, which is quite good, so I may stick to what I did originally. But I don't know.
