A new quiz has recently come out about Marshal something or another.

The author is El_Raton, with that little thingamawhatsit on the O. Type in the name without the symboled o to see that he hasn't been here since February 08. Go back to the quiz, and click on his name from there. You get a screen saying "user not found."

What gives? How can someone who isn't here write a quiz and get it online, especially if he doesn't even really exist?

It was offline, an editor made some adjustments and put it online.

The author's username had a character which the quiz system did not recognise (although the forums software in here does).
Now fixed - the ó has been replaced by o.

Please rest assured that it is not a phantom quiz, let alone a phantom author.

lol, ok, thanks, guys. I figured it was something to do with an editor editing, or something, but it was over a year, so it seemed odd.

I remember socalmiguel, editors finished his quizzes and got them online, even after he passed. :-( Same thing with el_raton, right?
