Question

Fortunately, the Quiz System rarely shows the previous day’s Quiz answer incorrectly... That’s what happened on 11/06/2019 and also on 12/12/2019.

Well, anyway, even if the System incorrectly shows the Quiz answer, but you still earn your precious PoE, I think that’s what matters... Right?

There's an issue with the quiz with the child and the Stop sign screenshot; I wanted to make a pun, but it would involve part of the answer. The quiz also resets if you click 'back' then navigate back to the home page. The answer isn't coming up when typed either, missing three letters standing for an abbreviation.

Very interesting! If I remember about this, I can try this the next time the Screenshot from this game appears again!

When?

EDIT:

PS: I think I know what the pun you wanted to make...

I can post the pun or yourself after the next Quiz starts!

I believe the pun you would like to have made would be Quiz “messed-up” something, right?

Nope, my pun was "There seems to be a 'Mix-Up' with the quiz". My puns aren't quite that subtle, and it was literally part of the answer.

This technique seems to (sometimes) work only when the quiz has an 'owie'. I try it every time it does happen, which thankfully isn't a lot; I really love the quiz.

Thanks for the additional info.

It just piques curiosity about the possibilities of our beloved Abandonia Daily Screenchot Quiz!

Unhappy

Ugh... Looks like the last Quiz of 2019 (Yesterday) was a complete fiasco...

Because, in that case, you would depend on luck and not your knowledge... You only have a 50% chance of getting the right answer... Well... Better luck next time, I guess... *shrug*

I brought that up the last time this came up, and was promptly chided. I happened to guess correctly this time, but beforehand, brought up two tabs to temporarily study each one to see if there were ANY differences, and they are identical. The people hosting the site are great folks, and I don't mean to complain, but an alternate screenshot for one of them would be nice (or maybe this is done just to torment us). It's OK, I'm a fan of the site and the quiz. 😁🥓

Yes, I agree with you... I would like you to answer correctly the Quiz based on your skills such as knowledge, deduction, memory, etc. than in luck... Although they say that luck is also a skill... *sigh* *shrug*

I have good and bad news:

• The bad news is that there are more identical Screenshots...
• The good news is that there are only 2 x 2 (=4) Screenshots that are identical. That means you only have a 50% chance of getting the correct Quiz answer in just 04 Screenshots out of thousands... Unless there are more identical Screenshots that I am not aware of...

While the other Screenshots are similar but not identical. It would be something like the Seven Errors Game. You just need to identify the subtle differences of certain Screenshots.

Seven Errors Game

Well, today's reports back incorrect. I'll be curious to know what the "right" answer is.
