Hello!

I believe that there is an error in the quiz again; I selected the correct answer from the drop-down list, and it stated that my answer was wrong.

This is what I selected:

for screenshot quiz

If all the games with special characters causes an error when you submit your guess, then they should remove those options from the roster. Another 5 Po8 down the drain.

It did contain parenthesis which are symbols.

Whilst some may think it childish, I don't believe it to be childish at all. It's not really about the Po8. That's just a little "reward" for taking the time to go and look for the game in the quiz. Most of us come to the site to see if those 2 or 3 favourites we remember from way back then is actually still available and not much more. What this feature really does in the process is bring you to many of the games that you might never have had a look at otherwise. I've already found a raft of other interesting games by searching for the correct screenshot, reading a review that piques my interest and then downloading and trying it out.

Therefore this feature is a very good internal advertising platform for Abandonia, but if it remains flawed most people will lose interest and stop using it which would be a bad thing for the website in terms of game exposure.

Hmm, after my last philosophical monologue, no one seems willing to post here anymore, so back to simpler things.

The quiz screenshot from yesterday (for Summer Games II) is exactly the same as one from World Games, therefore everyone who submitted World Games as their guess got 0 Po8 which is yet again unfair.

Actually, the player names in the top left are different. Yes, they are otherwise the same, but that did kind of jump out.
