Yeah, I was just wondering if there was a way to omit without doing this.


Only in the Admin portal: advanced search (i.e. including stuff with negating conditionals) is far off since I'm working on Moxon primarily.

Hmm...I'll admit, it's not promising. I have designs drawn up, and some local code, but then--well, to be totally open, Ashwin made his mobile app, and people seemed pretty happy with it, so my motivation got decreased further.

I do want to promise that Moxon will be here eventually! I code for a living, so it's not like I can ever really get away from this >.> I thought I had accounted for this potential lack of motivation in my initial estimates, but, you know, Hofstadter's Law...

Speaking of that, as Tycho is a hybrid app made using Ionic (HTML and Angular), you can also use Tycho online: http://tycho.outplayedapps.com/ I haven't worked much on it so some things such as text-to-speech will need to be reimplemented and the design may need to be changed to make it better use the desktop's larger screen size, but it's there.

2017 Penn Bowl
Lederberg 2
GRAB BAG
2018 ACF Regionals
2017 EFT

Questions uploaded today. Sorry that I haven't uploaded in two months: it may be significantly faster, but I still have to work up the effort to get it done...

Gonna try and do a bunch of MS/easy HS next, but it looks like there aren't that many MS questions on the archives. If you have any that you've been sitting on, please do upload them!

Are they any intentions to add the new released hs sets once summer comes around?

This is a minor issue, but the error/correction box always appears at the very bottom of the page to the left.

Yep! I work on a Machiavellian love/fear of the community basis, though, so best way to get the sets you want uploaded is to post about specific ones here, and I'll do my best to upload those first :)

Here's some: 2018 AGOGE, 2017 RMBCT, 2017 PSACA, and 2017 WHAQ. Thanks!

RMBCT and WHAQ have been uploaded to QuizDB, but AGOGE and PSACA were uploaded to the archives in PDF only, so they'll be lower priority than other sets in the archive that already have Word versions uploaded.

EDIT: I just discovered PSACA has a GDrive link, which gave me easy access to the Word files, but the formatting is extremely non-regular, which would take some time to correct--as it has to be done manually--so I'll continue to leave it lower priority.

If possible, could you upload some MS and Novice HS sets?
2014 SCOP MS 5
2016 SCOP MS 7
2017 SCOP MS 8
2015 SCOP Novice 6
2016 SCOP Novice 7
2017 SCOP Novice 8
This website is a godsend and it's ok to keep these at lower priority. If you want any help formatting or anything, I have lots of spare time to help. Thank you!

User was reminded to enable a signature. --Mgmt.


I'd love to! Unfortunately, right now it looks like most of the SCOP sets are only uploaded as PDFs, which can go through some Cronenberg-esque mangling when being parsed by Augur (my doc-to-quizdb parser), so I try to avoid doing so. Where human effort would be very helpful is pasting these into Word docs, checking for formatting errors (i.e. making sure the copy-paste hasn't result in weird errors like f's becoming Chinese Unicode, or just text going missing), and then organizing the text further if needed.

If you do feel up to challenge, PM me with the Word-ized sets, and I can get on that right away!

Math Monstrosity got PDF-mangled, but the LaTeX files are also uploaded on the database -- would those work better?

Sorry, I'm woozy and misunderstanding context: do you mean I've uploaded mangled questions for MM to QuizDB, or whether you should upload LaTex packets for MM?

You've uploaded mangled questions. The LaTeX versions are also available, if you'd like to try pulling from that to get non-mangled MM questions. (They'll still have LaTeX markup in them, but that's not a huge deal -- the only thing you'll probably want to deal with are the black circles for powermarks).

Oh yeah, it looks like these are pre-Augur questions. I'll mark it down and work on parsing the TeX at some point. Thank you for the update!

Good afternoon. Just a friendly reminder of what the people want, and what the people want is

M O X O N.

Also, thank you for all of your work with QuizDB so far. I always have a tab open on my phone and use it often.

If you could add the new GSAC to QuizDB when you're free, that would be cool.
