Why is the Flash/Interactive mode disabled for all the quizzes in the World category (even though Flash/Quiz Game mode is allowed)?

Because we have frequent issues with special characters (ie. leters in other alphabets or letters with accents) appearing in said quizzes. This is especially prevalent in the Language section but stretches across several World subcategories. As such, the system automatically disallows the option.

This is also why we don't allow punctuation in FITB answers.

Okay, I was just curious because Quiz Game mode is allowed, which also uses Flash, but the regular Interactive/Flash mode is not.

The non-ASCII characters aren't as troublesome in Quiz Game mode then?
