This was broken for the last day and a half b/c I switched up my nulls and undefineds, but it should work now. Hard-refresh the page, or explicitly toggle the setting a couple times, if you're still seeing the broken behavior.

Around 9 this morning, QuizDB started receiving very heavy load, which caused it to go down for everyone. Again, as this is a free site, I can't exactly just pay for massive servers, so if this is you, please stop, until I have to disable it temporarily for everyone.

Just updated QuizDB with the following sets:

2018 RAPTURE
2019 Spartan Housewrite
2018 Sun God Invitational
2019 ILLIAC
2018 Scattergories 2
2019 LOGIC
2019 Prison Bowl

If you're a developer, the latest DB dump in the bucket has been updated as well.

My planning doc (where I annotate which sets I've uploaded / am working on uploading / am blocked on uploading) is also now publicly visible here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing.

Some people have been asking how they can contribute / help upload, so I sent them a small guide. I plan to properly edit and publish that guide, but in the meantime, if you're also interested (especially for sets that you'd like to see uploaded, but aren't top priorities i.e. listed in my planning doc), feel free to reach out to me directly!

The above, but with the following sets:

2019 Chicago Open
2020 CALISTO

And as I always do, a reminder that I can only use Word packets -- I'm especially having issues finding Word files for HS sets, so please upload the original files if you have them there.

Just curious,

Wasn't 2020 Terrapin PIANO difficulty? It's classified under College Regs (7) right now.

Thanks!
