I accidentally made a typo while entering the following quiz question:
"Whish side of the moss has tree on it?"
please correct the first word to "Which", if you can (meaning, if you're an administrator ^^), or mark the question as mis-spelled

Tisztelettel megjegyezném,hogy ugyan ez egy szabad ország. De ez egy nemzetközi szerver is,ahol nem sok helye van egy 15 millió ember által beszélt nyelvnek,főleg nem akkor,ha a játék nyelve is angol. És nem, nem vagyok hazaáruló,imádom a magyar nyelvet,de itt nincsen helye szerintem.
Emellett pedig elveszíti a varázsát a játék is,ha az angolnak készült dolgok között folyton magyar feliratok bukkannak fel. A tesztszerveren még elment,de itt a Beholdernek is ártunk a magyar szöveggel. Ki akarták terjeszteni nemzetközi szintre az eddigi egyik legjobb böngészős játékot (kalap emelést megérdemelnek. nyilván vannak kisebb-nagyobb hibák és az angol fordítás helyenként elég szögletes,de ezen lehet javítani). Nekik ebből bevételük lenne,de nem hiszem,hogy sokan fognak jönni (egyébként sem a legismertebb a cég külföldön,amennyire tudom) ha az angol szerveren nem mernek majd angolul megszólalni. Ha szeretjük a Beholdert,aki játékokat ad nekünk már elég régóta,akkor ne vágjuk már alattuk a fát.
És én is játszottam szlovák nyelvű Travian szerveren,de mivel a köszönömön és a sültkrumplin kívül egy szót nem tudok szlovákul,ezért nem írtam magyarul sem.
Igyekszem segíteni az angol fordításokkal és a fórumon is relatíve normális angol hozzászólásokat próbálok írni,tanítgatnám a magyar veteránok által már ismert technikákat a külhoni újoncoknak,hogy ne menjen el a kedvük a játéktól.
Innentől kezdve igyekszem én is angolul írni.

1 spider has 8 legs (4 pairs) so 4 spiders have 4X8 legs,which equals 32.
1 chicken has 2 legs (1 pair) so 3 chicken have 3X2 legs,which equals 6.
6+32 is 38 legs

The question is a bit ambiguous, because the Giants won the 2007 season on February 10, 2008, but the winner of the 2008 season was really the Pittsburg Steelers.

What instrument is used to tune an orchestra


Incorrect Answer - Oboe


Among the instrument groups and within each group of instruments, there is a generally accepted hierarchy. Every instrumental group (or section) has a principal who is generally responsible for leading the group and playing orchestral solos. The violins are divided into two groups, first violin and second violin, each with its principal. The principal first violin is called the concertmaster (or "leader" in the UK) and is considered the leader of not only the string section, but of the entire orchestra, subordinate only to the conductor.

From WikiAnswers:
What instrument is used to tune the orchestra?

Traditionally, the Concertmaster (usually the first chair violinist) tunes his violin to a known standard pitch like A-440 and then the other orchestral instruments tune to his or her pitch.



So, this incorrect answer blew my Quiz Olympics.......... 47 of 48 to that point, with 4:30 to go... How about stripping some SE from the creator of this question and passing it to me?

no, you're wrong, it really is the oboe which is used to tune the orchestra. the reason for that is that oboe is the only instrument that cannot be tuned by hand, thus forever retaining its perfect factory-tuned notes - its sound will always remain the same.

Well, right or wrong - it's an absurdly obscure question that has conflicting information when looking for the answers. If Wiki can't get the answer right, it's a bad question.
