When I played the Heroes game tonight I noticed a question with the statement "whose flag is shown here". So I went and checked the quiz afterward, and indeed it was a photo quiz. (A well-written one, of course.)

My understanding was, however, that photo quizzes and brain teasers were not to be a part of the question pool? Has that changed? Or was that just an oversight?

Thanks. Bug. Fixed.

Which topic?
I'd like to avoid it, please.

I also had a question from a photo quiz in the Point Tree. It was in the Harry Potter - Characters category. It contained a question coming from the quiz by Skunkee called A Pictorial Guide to Harry Potter.

I had that one, as well, but an educated guess is all that's needed for the question I received.

It can be reasonably guessed indeed, but I don't think it should be in the Point Tree anyway.

I agree, James. I was just pointing out that it wasn't a complete disaster to get the question in this instance. I'm sure Terry will do whatever is necessary to prevent it happening again.

Thanks Terry!

(Yes, it was the same question that others have mentioned, and yes I could figure out the answer but I'm glad to know it's been fixed.)

Just had a question from the quiz by Skunkee called A Pictorial Guide to Harry Potter in the Point Tree. Thought I'd mention it as it was thought to be fixed.

I suspect that is from the cached questions for the week -- those will be regenerated probably Sun night.

I got a question from Looney_Tunes' Micronesia photo quiz in today's Team Heroes game. The absence of the picture didn't hinder players from answering the question though (unlike the flag question in Gracious' post).

I just got a question from WesleyCrusher's photo quiz "Umpire!" (http://www.funtrivia.com/quizdetails.cfm?quiz=360137) in the Pot of Gold game. I thought there weren't supposed to be any photo questions in the timed games? And yes, the photo was required to answer the question.
