Unfortunately, the reason is in the Grandmaster Spectreman’s post, summarizing the current lethargic state of the AB Forums.

Not always the interests of the owner coincide with the interests and needs of the users (Users, Translators, Updaters, Mods, Super Mods and Admins )... This is the current and sad reality of AB Forums...

Well, DOSGames.com is also in the same situation, especially after the dosraider stopped attending both Forums...

It slowed the site progress initially, then people started to find new activities, and no one replaced them. So... slow death, I believe.

I made sure the screenshot was for the right game, went to the game's page, typed the first part of the title and selected the correct game - incorrect message. The quiz has an oopsie-woopsie.

There are at least three games with the same screenshot and very similar names. This is a poopy quiz today.

Yes, I even remembered the theme for the screenshot, but didn't look closely enough, and got it wrong. I checked and saw the screenshot for two games, but didn't know there was a third in that series with the same screenshot. For those three games, those should either not be chosen, or maybe only one of those screenshots should be used from that series of games. If anyone has any suggestions, I wouldn't mind hearing them. I still love the quiz, and appreciate the staff having it here.

I partially agree with you.

The difference of the other two quizzes would be similar to the Game of 7 Errors. There are small and subtle differences, which unfortunately was not the case today’s quiz.

It would be impossible to distinguish what would be the correct answer from today’s quiz. You would be only 50% likely to guess correctly this one and the next times it appears again.

I know it i not very promising and encouraging, but there is nothing we can do about it...

For all the times the quiz poops itself, this is one that it really can't be faulted for. Having identical or nearly identical screenies in different games is not it's fault.

Well, theoretically speaking, screenshots always can be replaced... But I am not a person to do that.

This doesn't make sense... I had suffice time to guess for one of the screenshots. Not only that, but it apparently counted my attempt to guess for the next voting day.
