Unhappy Quiz Error? (Send us your feedback)



and once again...

i know the correct answer for quiz of the day today and i gave the answer to the quiz and it didn't accept it!!!

this was the fifth or sixth time that this has happened to me.

why does it happen?

if someone says i'm only kidding, the today correct answer is 'A MAGICAL MYSTERY GAME'!

Yep seems to be another Quiz error, it happens sometimes when the site decides to play funny games with us. There are good reasons for why it does them but I can't remember what they are, something to do with two versions of the node and the Quiz looking for the old one, but the drop down giving the new one.

I searched the game, found the screenshot, got the name from the drop down and was Incorrect. Just so people know.

Oh and does someone want to edit that name out so that if this does get fixed it's not sitting there.

there's also another possible error that has to do with the quiz:
the current screenshot can be found under both "xxx" and "xxx".

Nope.
I know which games you mean and: no, the zcreenies ain't the same.
There is one detail in today's quiz sceenie that can tell you which game is the correct one.
And yes, if you input the correct game name, you get your PoE (as yours truly did, of course)

Tomorrow I'll post a pic with the difference and how to determine about what game the quiz was about.

... Nope Darth, it's not a quiz error, and you got the wrong screenshot.
No need to edit the game name or anything, you screwed up, not the quiz.

TA pointed out why this game has the screenshot on two games, and thats fine....if a little odd. Makes the quiz a little bit harder.
