Harper Lee wrote a novel published as?

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD
TO KILL A HUMMINGBIRD
TO KILL A CUCKOO
ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST

This question was evaluated as a bad or incorrect question for this reason: Spelling mistakes in question or answers.

On careful re-examination, I cannot find any spelling mistake. What am I missing?

Thanks for the guess. In standard English, titles of books are expressed in caps. Plays or poems would be in quotation marks. I would like further clarification or exoneration.

Just try without the caps.
On the web, all caps is standard yelling, and considered bad form.

Sorry, the answers are automatically generated.

There is a possibility for the evaluators: "Let the quest be completed". It means, that the question will not be part of the database and you will not get a good or a bad question tag, but your quest is still completed.
We use this evaluation in case of smaller grammatical errors and typos, when the question is already in the database (but not an obvious choice) or when we do not like the question for some other reason, but it still seems reasonable to let the quest be completed.

There are times when you wonder if the evaluators use all the tools they have available to them... ie, GOOGLE.

Besides, we all know it was United, eeeerr wasn't it?

This question was evaluated as a bad question : Bobby Fischer beat Boris Spassky where? The correct answer is Iceland. The other possible answers were Finland, The United States of America, and Russia.

The Fischer-Spassky tournament in Iceland was a major event in the cold war. Surely this could not be considered a question that is too obscure, could it? I've checked the spelling of every word and name in the question, so that cannot be the reason for the bad evaluation. I'm perplexed.

Your quiz question is valued as „Bad question”!
Explanation: According to evaluators only a special group of people might know the answer.

Here's my problem. I feel a majority of the questions in the data base fall under this explanation. When I don't know an answer, because a question may be from an area I'm not good at, I go to ask.com. I think the evaluation of my question is unfair. I don't know all the presidents of the USA, but there are many questions regarding them.

We usually do not accept questions when someone asks for the result of a not extraordinarily well-known event in one specific year. Yes, you can google it, but I think even those who are interested in this field would not answer the same question for example about year 2006 (without using a search engine). Or we should accept the same question about International/European/Asian etc. car of the year awards.

I think all of these are quite lexical.

Many years ago, I gave up on proposing questions for the quiz because the idiots who evaluate them have no criteria. It turns out that I found an interesting question, that I thought would be cool for us gamers, and decided to propose it. The idiots, of course, rejected it. I am not even mad, as losing 1k SE is beyond irrelevant to me, but I wanted to post it here so that some people could see it. So here we go:

Your last question
As of March 2014, who is the most accomplished Pro Gamer, with earnings exceeding $500,000?

Jaedong
Fatal1ty
Flash
Dendi

It also got me years ago. That's why I never propose questions. This was an exception and just because Jaedong got to half a million recently. As you can see, I am an SC2 fan

Fascinating to see stupid people trying to joke. You actually never cease to amaze, since stupidity has limitless potential!
I do complain a lot but I come here with valid concerns, unlike you trolls who only come to mock me. If you actually had brains instead of dirt in those dumb heads of yours and look past those dense clouds of hate you surrounded yourselves with, you might be able to see I am right most of the times. But than again, invertebrates like you don't think, Hell, you don't even have instinct! Your DNA programmed you to spit, so you spit!

"valid concerns"? i'd agree. "right most of the time"? again, i'd agree.
but then you always seem to go on to accuse Beholder of moneygrabs, Miklos of not caring, or players of being dirt-for-brains invertebrates.
being so much smarter than the rest of us, surely you understand how that behavior provokes animosity.
