Q5 is incorrect. Saul and Tim have literally saved my life at least once, when I got so tangled up in kite lines that I couldn't swim (my llimbs were completely bound, and I wasn't carrying a knife). Thanks to the canoe Tim kept on the roof of his truck, they were able to sail out and pick me up, and I only ended up with a mild case of hypothermia.

I'm so sorry, I was using an outdated version of "Who's Who in the K'nex world."

Seriously, I specifically try to incorporate a popular K'nexer to ward off this exact complaint-and this is what I get. I can't win.

<sheepishly> I didn't get that far. I gave up after about #6, as the questions up to that point seemed to focus on the social relationships of the staff and long-time members.

Maybe I should try again, and just stick it out... No rude comments from the peanut gallery!

And I made a question just for you... :D Okay, good to get feedback-you think I should add questions on other things? Perhaps something along the lines of "what is the most common usage of an altoids tin on instructables"?

. I thought you did a great job, but it was heavy on things that only "old-timers" would know. Maybe alternate general knowledge and personality questions, so you don't lose the newcomers right away.
. For the T/F questions, I'd suggest something a little less confusing and consistent. Eg:
 o True o False o n/a o n/a
for all T/F questions.

Me, too! If somebody actually chose Frue, they should either get it automatically wrong, or maybe half a point ;->

I really appreciated that, considering that I've only been around here for six weeks! The warmth and acceptance is really cool (urgh...is that the third beer talking?). I agree with NM (below) that a fair number of the questions are for "old timers." Some other "content based" questions could be useful. I think you were really designing the quiz as an amusement for those old-timers like yourself (har, har :-), so the questions might not be so far off after all.

I put down Canida, because I though she was the co-founder and Eric was the founder. I'm right, but that's not what the test goes by.

No. Canida is not a co-founder. Eric and Dan founded it. Show me where any source says she is.
