Disputed answers to quiz questions.
« on: November 08, 2009, 02:24:56 AM »
If you've taken one of the Manband quizzes (accessible from the Manband Archive's homepage), and wish to query an answer, then here's the place to do it.

The referee's decision is final, even if I'm wrong. Which I'm not. ;-)

Or hardly ever anyway.

If I am, then we'll all be judged by a jury of our peers within this forum.

You know how reliable they are.....

Man Overboard Q19 - What's on the wall?

Maybe after a good curry my internal organs might look like that...

Yes Martin, you're not the only one to have noticed Jules's Vomit Fixation...

I've just done the 'Man Overboard' Quiz. Surprising answer to Question 19, serves me right for thinking I'm clever I suppose. Nevertheless.

He did. I also had another look at Maniacs 2 Q20 which I apparently answered incorrectly....

Thank you gents. Incorrect entries now corrected, although I still have a wistful fondness for the previous Overboard Q19 answer.

The answer to Maniacs 2 Q20 would have kept you turning in circles for a while, but I decided it was too fiendish even for me.

Of course not. ::)

How are we to know if you would have got them right? 80% chance of failure and all that.  ;D

I respect your decision, Jules.

I'll....I'll try and be strong.....(exits hurriedly, wimpering)

Jules you need to adopt the Terry Willson Laws Of Pub Quizzing, there's only 2 laws

1 - The question master is always right.
2 - In cases of dispute rule 1 applies.

I thought about that, but figured it would be much more fun to get involved in heated debates about answers in here.

My results speak for themselves (Manboarders 2 - Evil Webmaster 0), so on balance I think that's fair.

It'll keep the stats up too, while we have nothing else much to argue about  ;D

... pardon me,i have a quiz dispute: on manfans 3 quiz, question 10 i chose someone other than the "correct"answer.it was my understanding the drummer who is indicated to be the 4th drummer in the quiz was just covering some gigs. is it kind of a trick question ? how many gigs did this drummer do for example? i will happily stand corrected,but i am curious to know how much one more correct answer would add to a score of 60%(i need all the help i can get)-many thanks-davey p.s.  please nobody cheat off this but i thought the correct answer started with a b-peace
