(i will not, however, post the proper solution, in order to not spoil the game...)
I noticed that too. However I did not report it because the error was in the suggestion box only. Once I put in the name of the game
hint
I was marked as correct and I received 5 POE.

I noticed close to the same problem on Dec. 3 '11 when the correct answer was Frogger (3D) but when I typed in Frogger the suggestion box only offered Frogger and Frogger II - Three Deep. Though when I put in the whole name of Frogger (3D) it was recognized.

Oh boy!
From yesterday's partial problem, to today it is even worse.
I put in the correct answer
upside down and backwards
and it said that I was wrong.

Now since it did not accept the correct answer anyways even though I really put in the right answer and I hid my answer under a spoiler warning and only entered it obliquely, I hope that I won't be blamed for ruining the quiz for anyone else.

I really hope that these problems can be fixed soon.

P.S. @underdog I am glad that I was able to be of some help.

Abovo employees upgraded the servers and are working on the cache problem recently, so that could be the reason.
Please send me a PM with the last titles affected by problems, I'll look into it as soon as possible.
Thank you for reporting them.

[edit]
I've updated Ocean Ranger, it won't solve today's problem but it should work next time.

Thank you as always for promptly working on fixing the problem. I really appreciate it. I look forward to the quiz all day.

P.S. Was it O.K. for me to post the correct answer before the end of the quiz in the manner that I did? Previously I just put down a hidden hint.

oh, and, let me add this:
Yes, there are only two games on the site with Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation in the title. It did not work for me either. And I would like to add this:

Three days in a row!! I need my fix!
It also seems that I am not the only one who waits immediately for the GMT+2 screenshot changeover to answer the quiz. It just took me a little longer to post because I was trying to prepare this:
backwards and upside down
It takes time to pick out those symbols from the Unicode characters.
