When I came to the forums I used correct grammar. Since reading some of my posts on other forums it really bugs me about my poor grammar therefore I like to attain I high posting standard as I feel it is much easier to read. I also do support work for a Minecraft plugin and it's much easier to understand if it is written in grammatically correct English.

Also most people read from the shape of the word not the letters so correct grammar actually helps people read your posts and understand them more!

HC will you write all the questions? Could we input questions to help and not take part that week?

Flamers, you put 'I like to attain I high standard' I'm sure it should be 'I like to attain a high standard' :cool:

I've been writing the questions and getting feedback off AcidBurn on them before posting them, tweaking them if he has some better ideas. I was planning on doing that for every round, if other people were to help out the odd week it would take away a lot of the competitiveness of the quiz itself.

On a complete side note, why have I got Location, Location, Location on record? I must have gone crazy for a second.

Perhaps the quiz winner could become the quiz master at the end of the 10 weeks? If they're willing of course (I certainly would be, but doubt I'll win :p).

I didn't know the correct answer to the last question but I reckon I should be given a point for the quality answer I have given instead.

I was planning on making this annual, around this time every year. I think (personally) if we kept the quiz going all the time it would eventually drag out and people would lose interest.

Nobby, got to be honest, it made no sense what so ever.

So it's congratulations to [B]deltablue[/B] who got every single question right and sits at the top of the table after Week 1. Unfortunately [B]malikoli[/B] only got 2 questions right and sits down 2nd to bottom, saved by Lenzar who didn't send in any answers.

[B]Fruit Coke[/B] (ManUtdTactician247) - It was a good guess but really, Coca-Cola were never going to do a healthy version :cool:

[B]Don’t think Vatican is a real country so I’ll go for San Marino[/B] (Pangaea) - Oh, if only you'd have said Vatican, oh wait you did but didn't put it as your answer! I suggest you stop reading now Pangaea!

[B]Kim Dong-yun[/B] (Pangaea) - If you'd have put 'Jong-yun' I would have accepted it as yun sounds like un so yet again, so close, but yet so far! :D

[B]Suk Mi Dik[/B] (Nobby_McDonald) - No thanks Nobby, when you said 'last question' I thought you meant your guess at the Bonus Question 'Deportivo Wanka'

[B]Marshal Mathis[/B] (malikoli) - Yet another one that was so close but so far, it's Mathers not Mathis.

[B]Carlton Cole[/B] (Barney Butterball) - He will never make team of the year, come on! :cool:

[B]Marilyn Monroe[/B] (iHeadHunta x) - She died 50 years ago so it would be impressive for her to star in a film that has just been released!

[SIZE=1]*All in light hearted humour, did not and do not mean to offend anyone.[/SIZE]

I'm sorry how is 12 points possible from 11 questions?

Also question 8 has a second answer - Alexandra Roach, who plays the young Thatcher.

Cheers SnakeXe, I checked all the answers so if someone had put Alexandra I would have given them a point and yes, it's 2 points for the Bonus Question, I did say that in the OP :cool:

Carlton Cole is amazing in the 4 appearances he made for my FIFA 12 team (he was brought for £14.5m) he scored a grand total of 2 goals a season!

Sent mine, think I got 9/12, possibly 10 depending on how much leeway you're allowing us with the answer to 5.

9 is an excellent question, mainly because I knew the answer :D

Ugh, so close yet so far away. Would still say the Vatican is not a real country though. I believe they only have observer status in the UN and can't vote, and there are only a few blowhards who actually live in the place anyway.

Kim Dong-yun was a wild guess. Funny I got that close :D Should of course made it a more educated guess and put in Jong after his father, but it was all in jest anyway.

Vatican is recognised as a country buy the UN, Sealand isn't. That defines a country :)

Beat me to it Flamers, I will have accepted Sealand though as barely anyone knows of/about it so if you knew about it, you deserve the point! :D
