Could the number of characters be increased so that we could set problems on hubs?
That would definitely be nice. I also recall the text from the details of a quiz result being cut off in practice but not when typing it. In other words, you'd think all your text fit, but if you actually tested the quiz, you'd see it was actually unceremoniously spliced.
Admittedly, it has been a bit since I've used a quiz, so it's possible things are different now. And no one wants to see a novel in a quiz capsule, so the limitations may be intended to keep us brief.
Would you like the long answer, the short answer, or the kind of middling answer that will make no one happy? Still short of 120 characters here…

I get a lot of questions. Most have been fine, but lately I'm seeing a trend where people are using the Q and A to criticize rather than ask, and some of the criticisms are not only unwarranted but quite ugly. Of course, I delete them, but I do have to wonder why these people think it's...

One of my Questions is getting absolutely buried in comments. Why is HP hiding them? Seems to me that the more the merrier.

In view mode, part of the quiz module (the questions and answers) are not showing on my iPad. On the laptop using the most recent Firefox the quiz vanishes when you try to mark an answer. You can take the quiz if you go ahead and guess where the bubble is, but it's really annoying. Is anyone else...
