Well, the competition ended yesterday, and here are the answers... All of you that haven't played, you missed an easy prize because all people that participated - won something The winners will be contacted shortly and they will choose their prizes.

Answers to the first set of questions:

1. When did Abandonia first appear on the internet? Give exact date.
21.06.1999.

2. How is this date relevant to Kosta's (owner's) family?
Birthday of his mother, Ines

3. What typo can be found on the SQ Collection box released in 1997?
Vouhoal's Revenge instead of Vohaul's Revenge.

4. The StarCon logo introduced in SQ5 is a triangular shape. But what shape does the logo have when you're standing on top of the Main Rotunda? Provide evidence for extra score!

5. Who is this man?
Ken Williams - He founded Sierra On-Line, for nearly two decades one of the world's leading PC game makers, selling it to Cendant Corp. in 1996 for $1 billion.

6. Duke Nukem is a series we all know very well... but! The very first game in the series had 2 official names (depending on which version you have of the game). One of the names were of course Duke Nukem. What was the second name? Give a reason as to why for extra score!
Version 2.0 was named Duke Nukum.
Reason: Apogee heard rumours that there was another game character in Europe with the copy-righted name of Duke Nukem. Because of this they quickly changed the name to Duke Nukum. Later they realized that the name wasn't copy-righted, so they bought the rights and the series have been named Duke Nukem ever since.

7. An easy one.... who was the real life model used for shaping this character? What is the name of the game, and what is the name of the character in the game.
Jean Reno as Jacques Blanc in Onimusha 3

8. id Software had many alternative titles to Wolfenstein 3D (not all were serious, but they were still made). Name 5 alternative titles.
Castle Ochtenstein
Luger's Run
The Fourth Reich
Adolph's Bane

Tank You Very Much
Castle Hasselhoff
How Do You Duseldorf?

9. 21st Century Entertainment Ltd. is a company rather famous for creating pinball games, but what was it originally named - before it changed its name to 21st Century Entertainment Ltd. in 1991?
Hewson Consultants Ltd.

10. And one for the forum regulars... Which forum member, although not officially a moderator, has performed the most moderator actions to this day? Give a rough estimate of how many!
Data - 1065

Answers to the second set of questions:

1. Who was the first person to achieve Admin status on Abandonia forums besides Kosta? Why is this person's admin status undisputable?
- Titan. The Abandonia forums had a very slow start. Even 3 months after the opening it still had only around 2 new posts per day and I was determined to close it because I thought it will never come to life and serve any purpose to the site. However, Titan forced me to keep it alive regardless, for reasons only known to him His judgement proved to be right!

2. Only one villain has ever won over Batman in a fist-fight, leaving Batman crippled as a result. Who?
- Bane. He broke Batman's spine in a fight.

3. When did Maikel take over the designing part of the site? Who was in charge of design before? What was Maikel's occupation at the time he started the redesign?
- Maikel took over in 2004, before that Kosta did the designs. He was student of Communication & Multimedia Design in Delft

4. Batman's base of operations is Gotham City, but what other superhero (not in the Batman family) used Gotham as his base?
- Alan Scott, the very first Green Lantern.

5. How many servers does Abandonia run on? Which web hosting companies own these, and what do you estimate is the max allocated bandwith (in Mbits) of each?
- It runs on two servers. LeaseWeb and HiVelocity, 10Mbit + 20Mbit for a total of 30Mbits/sec of bandwith

6. In what comic was Batgirl shot in the spine and paralyzed for life? And who has the shooter?
- The Joker shot her in "The Killing Joke".

7. One for the forum regulars... Which forum member, although not officially a moderator, has performed the most moderator actions to this day? Give a rough estimate of how many!
Data - 1065

8. The Joker is possibly the most wellknown enemy of Batman, but what was his occupation before he changed into The Joker?
- He was a seriously bad stand-up comedian - NOT a thief. Thieving was something he did on the side.

9. How is the creation date of Abandonia connected to Kosta's (owner's) family?
Birthday of his mother, Ines

10. Who has *officially* used the Robin Costume in the comic? And in which order? And what happened to them?
- Dick Grayson (first) - he later left Batman to create Nightwing. Jason Peter Todd (second) - he was beaten to death with a crowbar by The Joker. Timothy Drake (third) - he leaves Batman after his parents are killed. Stephanie Brown (fourth) - Timothy's girlfriend, who takes the role when Tim resignes. She is fired by Batman for not following orders.
