Spelling is usually not a problem for me. Not having to spell dyslexia on an every day basis, possibly. Now the new question that was marked incorrect was "What was the name of the club where Ricky Ricardo worked? My answer "The Tropicana"...marked wrong. Their answer was "Tropicana" are you kidding me?

Ow! I hate it when that happens! I got one like that the other day, asked for a film characters nickname, the hint actually said 2 words, so I put [forename] [nickname/surname] (which he is called in the film in question) and it wanted [nick] [name] if that makes sense. It's ever so peeving

Did it say that it was one word in the question?

Is it just me, or is this thread all broken up as different topics?

If the hint said 'one word', then no - we're not kidding you. The hints are there for a reason.
