Opera here. Still nothing worked.

Chrome. Same thing.

IE. Doesn't work with base, but copy/paste worked as described above.

Conclusion: modern FF is only browser that exist on "site staff" machines.

Additionaly "missing security token" was generated when I had expired time, then tried to relogin in different page. Oh, well...

I can also confirm the quiz isn't working. I've attempted to answer in the past two days using IE, FireFox, and Chrome. No go! Is it perhaps related to the donation banner on the top of the front page? I didn't notice any troubles before the banner was there.

Oh, and on an unrelated note, I did send a donation to the Abandonia staff. Many thanks to them for all they do! Abandonia is a fantastic resource to have available on the web!

The Abandonia Daily Quiz is still being held to ransom today

hey, abovo... whats up? you are aware that blocking the quiz with a dubious plea for donations (while im being bombed by non-related advertisement banners) is not going to make me donate... and i have a *hunch* im not the only one to feel that way; so, please, if you dont know how to make both the request for donations AND the quiz work... disable either... and take some time to consider what it is you want to close down...

So we can't participate in the quiz unless we donate? Are they serious? Donating is always optional, that's why it's called a donation. At least someone from the staff should explain what is going on.

Chris, it was a joke earlier. You don't need to donate anything, and donating will not allow you to vote. Contest is simply was broken because of banner.

BTW, today I was able to guess in my Opera. Unfortunately (as I didn't knew game anyway) I didn't wait enough to test if base works too, but guessing is.

Ok, thanks for your answer but the quiz still doesn't work for me.

I checked it somewhere upper in this thread, and someone else did that too. In short: guessing work in Internet Explorer only and newest Firefox - last one seems haven't problems unlike everything else. Other browsers seems blocked by this banner (at least it broke something on page for sure).

Update of my previous message: it is banner. While I cannot press "more" because page didn't load to the end, I can guess in Opera. Base is not works, but button "Guess" is. When page loaded completely, I can press "more" at banner and "open" it, but button "Guess" stops to work. Great programming, it seems.

(Tomorrow I will try to block banner altogether and see results

Aha, I cannot block banner, it's integral part of page, and not external element. :/ Great.

Well, I filled contact form. We'll see.
