seeings how often this thing is wrong, why not just get rid of it? If it goes a week without being wrong, I'm floored.

I don't know if there are any statistics about how many log in every day just for the daily quiz, but I think there are a lot of members doing that thing.

.......And for many it's the only way to gather enough PoE to get an access invite to the hidden pr0n section.

I am the one who got 400 pieces of eight in the last year from responding correctly in the quiz and I didn't have ever any problem. : P

any news yet on when the quiz will be back?

as for bluewave: lucky you, then... then again, if you earned 400PoE and never failed, that also means you took part in 80 games... out of 365... chances ARE you were lucky to not stumble over one of the "bad" quiz days...
fact is... the quiz has been having issues - which the abandonia crew eagerly fixed as soon as they could (just like any issues about the site are being fixed asap when made note of...) so, im hoping this current (rather longish) repair will fix the issue once and for all

keep us updated guys. also, dont you dare drop the quiz from the site... whoever doesnt like can feel free to not take part!

This is the situation: after many changes and a server upgrade made to improve many fields of the site the Quiz started to fail its duties every week or two. (Instead of the normal random glitches that we were able to fix once for all)

The tech guy noticed that there's a glitch that corrupt tables where the answers are compared.
As you know there's a way to reload the Quiz, but this solves the problem only temporarily until a new problem appears.
Don't worry the Quiz is still there and still (half) working, and we would like to have it back too. It's just disabled, I saw that this was becoming a source of frustration and difficult to manage so we decided to leave it disabled.

I hope we will find a solution or we should start thinking other alternatives.
That's pretty much all I know for now

I heavily doubt it. The only thing that I could see causing riots, is all the problems with the quiz.

I don't, I know many users who come here each day just to have a crack at the quiz. And they would not be happy to see it go, in fact if you read a little bit here you would see people wanting it back already.

Ditto. I, for one, would rather have the quiz back with an error here and there than not have it at all.

Even without the PoE, the screenshot guessing is good fun!
