"Who is Superman's boss?"

The correct answer is Perry White, but he is the boss of Clark Kent (Superman's alter ego).

Superman = Clark Kent. So logic says, whoever is the boss of Clark Kent, classifies as Superman's boss as well. I see no error here

Hehe, I don't buy that. If you ask Perry White, he would not claim to be boss of Superman

Here we have 4 different spellings of "electricity"

"According to the rhyme, what was Humpty Dumpty?"

answer marked correct is "egg," but the rhyme is ambiguous:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

further, there is already another correct question on the same topic:

"According to the poem, what is Humpty Dumpty?"

suggestion: delete incorrect quiz question.

alternatively, the question could be reworded:

"According to traditional illustration of the rhyme, what was Humpty Dumpty?"

Who was the movie voice of E.T?

Verne Troyer
Tom Jones
Debra Winger
Amber Wendt

The question lists Debra Winger as the correct answer. However, Debra Winger only provided the voice of ET for the rough cut for the movie. Pat Walsh is credited for the voice of ET in the released version of ET.

"In Doomlord, if other players like your question you will receive what on this page?"

Well, it is not "other players" in general but as I understand it a group of "quiz masters".
".. on this page" probably refers to the page where you write the quiz question, but when you as the player read the question you can be on other pages, like Adventure, Hunt, Pit of Damnation etc.
