If it didn't specifically say "In Hard Mode", then yes, you can use easy mode.

I completed the crossword in hard mode, but it won't "whisk me away." Nor does it count. I can't find any mistakes.

Ack. "This post may no longer be deleted."

Found my mistake blush and got whisked away. smilee

My easy challnge today was "Play a quiz whose title begins with the letter S and score at least 3 correct". I played Sultans at Rest and got 9/10 but didn't get my points for it. HELP!

That quiz,

http://www.funtrivia.com/trivia-quiz/World/Sultans-at-Rest-355160.html

actually begins with a quotation mark " ' " instead of an "S". So you'll have to play another quiz that begins with an "S" without a quotation mark.

Thanks Maria, but when I looked again, I got my credit, so someone must have fixed that glitch. Thank you to whoever ... smile

My guess is "Geographical Felines" (hey, that's my quiz!) was simply on the cusp. I don't recall it ever being average, it's always been tough. So it must have very recently moved to average. It is probably part of that little leeway Terry created, so it counted. If this is the case, I definitely see 5 in a row. Your total would not have moved from 3 until you had played the fourth in a row (which you didn't check until after playing ANOTHER, giving you 5).

I can see how it would be marked complete, though it doesn't appear it should be.


Thanks Salami Swami. I checked it after I played each quiz though, and it went straight from "Best attempt: 3" to "5 done: Complete".

Terry said that quizzes that begin with "" wouldn't count the "" as the first letter.

Yes, that was fixed, but sometimes, I believe, a quiz may slip through the cracks and not get counted... Perhaps it could have been simply delayed as it was deciphering the ["] as not a letter, and moving on to the next?

Or something weird like that.

And possibly the game was set to ignore an initial " but this quiz starts with ' - which is unusual, so it may need adjusting to have that ignored as well.

'Twas the night before... is the use of an apostrophe, not a quote mark. Including an ignore on a 'twere during a title reading by a quizbot would be wrong IMHO. The use of an apostrophe before and after titles maybe should be deemed as FT unaccepted usage in place of real quote marks: "__". "single quotes"('__') do seem to be getting a lot of use though. Aren't single quotes only to be used as a second tier of quoting within a quote?

Whether the leading apostrophe (as in 'tween) should be ignored though is a different subject only brought up here to show the impact of ignoring that leading apostrophe.

For quotations, ' is used for an internal quote-within-a-quote, but the use of ' or " as the primary denotation of titles is yet another trans-Atlantic divide.

I find it odd that getting 13/25 is good enough to win Quiz of the Hour (which requires getting 50% right), yet finishing 13th of 25 is NOT good enough to win the Daily Challenge "Rank in the top 50% of players in your division at the close of an hourly game of Who's the Smartest?"

Any explanation for this?

13/25 is more than 50% correct (as 12.5 would be 50%).

But 13th place out of 25 players is outside the top 50% because to be in the top 50% one would need to come 12 and halfth or better. smile

Yes, halfth is a word. Well, should be.

Serious bug in a medium challenge.

The challenge is to play any four average, tough, or difficult 10-question player quizzes in a row, achieving scores of at least 8 on each.

However, it will not record more than 2 quizzes. When I play another quiz, the bottom one drops off, and I'm left with a list of two again.

UPDATE: And naturally, as soon as I report it, it stops doing it. Oh well...

Okay, now I have one that is really wrong.

I bought a medium challenge, which is to play the Daily Game and score 17 correct. It says that I have answered 18 questions correctly, and that the challenge is complete.

The trouble is, I have not played the Daily Game yet today. I did play it yesterday and got 18 questions correct. Hmmmm....

I have reported this before but still happens.

My easy challenge

Play a mixed quiz (as listed on the homepage under Newest Mixed Quizzes) and score 595 points. Click the PLAY link (not HTML) for credit.

I played the html version, which obviously did not complete the challenge,I then went back and played the quiz game got the same questions and then completed the challenge.

It maybe because I am not a gold member and have reached my quiz scoring limit.

I'm not sure what the problem is. The mixed quizzes on the homepage feature the same questions even if you repeat, do they not?

Yes but it allows me to get the answers, through html, to feed them into the quiz game and thus achieve the challenge.

It's only an Easy Challenge - I find it hard to imagine that anyone would bother organising that technique to cheat their way to a win. It's not that hard to take a couple of them if you don't score enough the first time.

Hi everyone,

I've just returned from the mines of Funtrivia where I have been slaving most of the day to dig out the Epic challenge Quiz III badgelet. Has anyone one else managed to get a level three badgelet?

Yes Matthew_07 does have the triple black flag I believe he is the only other triple flag holder besides yourself right now congrats on what I imagine is quite a tough flag to get. The single orange flag took a while for me to get I could only imagine what the triple has in store.

Another major bug. The challenge is to visit Ask FunTrivia and ask a trivia question...
It says I have completed, but I have not gone to Ask FunTrivia at all.

I also checked my challenges real early (12:06 FT time) and find that I have already satisfied two of them:

Easy: Find and play a quiz with 20 questions and score at least half of them correct. You cannot have played the quiz in the past 30 days.

Medium: Rank in the top 5 in your division in any hourly game.

I assume that yesterday's result were checked rather than today's to satisfy the requirements stated here.
