Exclamation Screenshot Quiz Exploit!

Anyway, I went to answer the quiz, and I put in "Phantom Of the Opera" and it said I was wrong, however a few minutes later, I found that the quiz had acted as if I didn't even participate!

LOLZ.
LMAO.
:laugh:

Really.

Simply highlight and click the correct one in the suggestions box instead of typing in some weird stuff. It seems the quiz is extremely nitpicking about the correct spelling.


Sorry 'bout the
LOLZ.
LMAO.

:laugh:
Oh yeah:it's NOT phantom of the opera.

I think there's another bug where if you get it wrong, you can just go back a page.

I could be wrong, though.

What's the point if you don't get the answer right?
and possibly trying to enter any word (like kuberfang) you won't get it either?:amused:

I'd noticed that particular bug as well, and used it to get around what I consider to be another bug; overly narrow answer tolerances, with "Sim City" not counting as a right answer for SimCity and the like. Admittedly this was partly my fault for not bothering to wait for the suggestions menu, but if we're only meant to get one guess per game, that strikes me as being a wee bit unfair.

That's not unfair, you simply need to enter the name of the game like it is entered on site.

If you can't be arsed enough to wait for the dropdown menu (which appear in like 2 seconds or so for me)... It's my own opinion that you deserve to lose that day.

But it's not Sim City, and the game series never was named Sim City, it is SimCity......

Default Screen shot quiz

I answered the quiz and I know its correct because I have the game. I typed the title in exactly as it is on the download site and still I am told the answer is incorrect. The drop down thing is not working for me and hasn't for a very long time. Yes I have tried waiting and waiting and waiting but nothing happens...Sal

I tried it today and it was correct to me.
