To be honest Reton, it would be much easier if you let the people who took the quiz e-mail you the answers, it would probably make it easier and less cluttered and people couldn't cheat off of someone else's answers.

And I don't seem to remember making a quiz like that, although I made so many things I can't keep track of them all...

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 get what your saying. It was interesting to see an older quiz. (BTW why the webmail. before the armorgames in the link?)

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.

And I don't seem to remember making a quiz like that, although I made so many things I can't keep track of them all...

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.

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).

First Post Award: mrtim
There is no way mrtim could have cheated because they were the first person to take the quiz. This also helped get the thread and quiz going. (Although eirwen posted before mrtim, eirwen did not submit any answers, the award is for the first post with answers.)

http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/6263/firstpost.png

Least Effort Award: MusicMan102
MusicMan102 may have only answered two questions and left a third one blank causing them to come in last place. Not a lot of effort put into that, but they get an award, well, one with not a lot of effort put into it.

Last Entry Award: chitown
Lastly, chitown was the last to enter the quiz, but at least they entered with plenty of time before the deadline and before I posted the results.

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*
