same behaviour for todays game. upon entering the (correct) answer, it said "wrong answer", but when logging back in, it says "your answer was correct". not sure if i actually DID get my POE though

At least leaving and returning to the site resets the quiz, but it says 'incorrect' each time.

spoiler for screenshot quiz

The dropdown suggestion list offered 01 version of the game’s name. Only one with an apostrophe.

Ugh! I just hope the today’s Abandonia Daily Screenshot Quiz does not get stuck again in the same screenshot of this damn Game like it happened quite recently for several days!

Like today’s Screenshot, this Quiz Error gives the impression that Quiz Player is falling in a bottomless cliff / pit... Kind of Falling off a Cliff dream?

The character falling into the pit is symbolism for us attempting to guess the right answer

Let’s hope Quiz Players do not have this kind of nightmare (or bad dream) today (in today’s Quiz)... *shrug*

Unfortunately, not necessarily. User named cdnp has extensive knowledge and has compiled a “complete” list of Quiz Errors where there are cases that do not involve '. For example, one of them would be the 7th Legion.

By the way, it was very coincidental that the Quiz Error occurred just on Friday 13th day... Well, I am not a superstitious person and I believe it was a very unfortunate coincidence... *shrug*

On the other hand, the today’s Quiz is working normally. So I can certainly say :

That's why I removed all such names first time when it was noticed, several years ago... *sigh*
