The Know Your Armor Games Quiz
Posted Dec 26, '10 at 5:28pm
O, well too late now lol. At least the people who want to take the test without cheating will take it and the cheaters I should be able to spot. It doesn't matter much anyway, because the quiz is not official.

I have no idea... I googled Armor Games Test and that was the link to that page. So, I'm not quite sure as to how the webmail. got in there.
My bad Firetail, I just happened to look through it and see your name at a quick glance.
It is a well-made quiz. If only there was a sure-fire way to make sure that no one would cheat. That way the winner (the person who actually took the time to find the information) actually wins.

Krin is not an Administrator. He's a Moderator.
Here's some proof:

^ I am also sure that Tony and ConArtist is also not a admin, but mods too, but can't find proof.

Well the Deadline is January 8th. I think I am going to grade each quiz and write comments on each one (by taking screen captures) and then upload those screen captures to imageshack, then I will give a link on the final one for each persons quiz. Then I will post the answers and the winner and winners image of a graphic art trophy (made by me in GIMP).

Just woke up a while ago, and it's great to see the results in.
*saves trophy image*
Posted Feb 9, '11 at 4:40pm
I want to say that it's nice to get second place, but er...if Knight won first place THAT much, then it's not much of an achievement. I'm going to go laugh at how excessive that was and cry for my failing grade at the same time. You know how to compare this? We all took a Calculus final. All of us are kindergarteners and the only person that aced it was a Harvard professor that got an 800 on the math SAT. That's how bad we are compared to Knight :P
*cuddles with 2nd place trophy anyways*
Posted Feb 9, '11 at 6:42pm
@Freakenstein's post, lol yeah.
Aside from knight doing so great. I don't think it was your guys faults. I think I had the point spread weighed too heavily on the most difficult questions. So the one's that were skipped were the real hard ones, but they also really really counted against you. My bad, my bad. I should have made more of the difficult questions with four or three points to even things out a bit.
I'm really glad you guys took it. It would have died so much more quickly if you didn't. If you're wondering, yes the trophies are supposed to be gigantic like 12 feet tall if not taller.
Also don't forget to click the links to read the graded quizzes and see the answers and where the answers came from too!
