Please shout if anything is a-squiff!
Don't you mean August round-up?
Quizzes with a July closing date could be removed.
I noticed the following line.

"If you are asking for help with a quiz, please can you ensure to include the quiz title and closing date."

Perhaps this should be added as a separate header at the top of the quizzes and puzzles page. I'm not sure that many folk will see it where it currently resides.

Just a suggestion and posting details would help publicize the quiz and hopefully, where relevant, will raise more funds for the charity being supported.
