    Hi Oleg and Elena. Thanks for sharing another plugin with the community. Firstly, sorry it took so long to get to review this.

    I would like know if this plugin was put into the Other category intentionally or by mistake. As far as I can see it is valid local plugin with no requirements for post-installation setup etc. Can I fix the selected category?

    I reported some issues detected while scanning through the code into your bug tracker as issues #356, #357 and #358. It would be nice to have them fixed prior to publishing this plugin in the plugins directory.

    For now, I am marking this as needing more work. Thanks for you patience with the review and approval process.

    Hi David.

    You can fix category, thought I wonder what it really should be. This plugin is strongly related to the questions, and they are currently placed as subcategory of quiz in Plugins database. It would be nice to have this plugin associatied (searchable) with quiz/questions as well, not just some local plugin.

    We are fixed issues you reported (#356-358), please review again.

    Categories here in the Plugins directory are representing the given plugin type. Given you have implemented your plugin as a local plugin, it should be located in the General plugins (Local) category. I understand your wish to have this searchable with the quiz or questions. In the future, some sort of tagging, labelling or otherwise inter-connecting might solve it. In the meantime, let me recommend to have the plugin's full description elaborated so that it contains enough keywords to be used for searching.

    Thanks Oleg and Elena for the updated version. I moved the plugin into the Local category and I am going to approve it now. While re-testing the functionality, I think I faced some edge-case issues with the drag&drop handling (such as clicking the category name, moving the cursor a bit and then releasing the mouse button - leads to disappearing of the description) but that does not seem to be the approval blocker. You are clear to land now, welcome to the Plugins directory.
