Noticed a spelling error in the Brain Twist today, "Crafted by Trivia Architect Zbeckabee" (I believe the quiz is "I Got My Drama From My Mama"). In question #10, there is an extra 'n' in "longnecked", thus: "LONGNNECKED".

There's no correction notice system for Brain Twists so I thought I'd post it here.

The best way to address it would be to go to her profile and find the quiz. You can quickly play it again and submit a correction from there. Since there are multiple quizzes used for each day's Brain Twist, and it is possible that more than one came from the same author, that would be a definitive way of identifying the question that needs to be corrected. And it works whether or not the quiz author is still active on the site.

Aren't quizzes that are in the day's selection of Brain Twists unavailable for selecting from the profile or from the quiz pool? Wouldn't that mean a return visit tomorrow to send the correction?

You can find the quiz on the profile, click on the link, and click "Play Now". However, once you click "Play Now", you get a message that says something like "This quiz is being used in Brain Twist and can't be played to prevent cheating".

You can make a note of which quiz it is and play it tomorrow, then send the correction note. Meanwhile, I'll see if I can find it.

I just tested, and there is a way of sending a correction directly from BrainTwist.

Click on "Send a Compliment". Select the "Send a Correction" radio button when the write a note page comes up. Write the correction and send. A correction note is sent, and arrives immediately in the place it needs to be for an editor to see it.

[When I played I didn't get the offending quiz, so I'll still have to look for it :)]

[Edit: Done. Thanks.]
