I have progressed quite far in the Monster Quiz and lately I have experienced quite a few missing questions in the sets. Usually the set counts the missing ones as correct and I get credit for them. In my set today (37,081-37,095) there were three missing questions (37083, 37084, and 37093). I missed one question and was given credit for only 11 correct answers.

It is probably time to regenerate the questions again (as you did before when this became an issue).

I was under the impression that missed questions were counted correct. This has happened to me several times and I always got credit.

That is what has always happened in the past, but maybe with three missed questions the algorithm does not work. It definitely said 11/15 today rather than 14/15.

I once had two missing questions and it worked, so if your guess is correct, then it would have to apply for at least three missing questions.

Anyone seen this before?

I just finished the Monster Quiz and scolled down and found I got 1 wrong but when I go to the bottom I saw my score was 11/15! This also appeared on the summary as well but others were there with up to 14/15. I then went back and found that 3 questions were missing. They started at 37081 and finished at 37095 which is 15 inclusive. However when I checked 1 by 1 I found that 37082, 37084 and 37093 were missing. Weird! I had spotted something like this before but put it down to me but this time I went back and checked.

Can anyone check my history to confirm I'm not going crazy! Seems like a bug but a strange one.

There have been other reports to some missing questions. Adding the numbers of the missing questions makes a great help for Terry.

If there is only one or two missing questions, it calculates as if you got the missing questions correct. But if there are more than two it does not make the correction. I had reported this problem earlier.

Hey dippo, this happens occasionally as questions are yanked out of the game automatically when they are found to be erroneous. Will do a reindex of that game's database in a little bit to fill in the holes... I usually do that once a year.

Thanks Terry, it's definitely needed. It seems to be missing more questions lately than the norm.

I also get missing questions nearly every other day. Time for a reboot to fill in the missing questions, perhaps?

I played the game and the bonus perk game. I'm around Q#s 20,000. I got 15 questions in each version. The load time seemed slow but that could be due to a lot of players going at it or my ISP is slow. Otherwise: No news is good news.
