The one about the Britannic is not true. The name may have been changed (though I haven't heard of that before) but not after the Titanic's sinking.
Jun 2nd, 2012 at 12:17 GMT
Catherine_F: Thanks for the comment. I'll check my wording but it is true. Here's a link to the Atlantic Liners site (one of many that tells the story): http://atlanticliners.com/britannic_home.htm

For most of the quiz, you have false before true (although I would prefer for it to be the other way around), but on number 81 true comes before false, which is pretty confusing.
Jun 2nd, 2012 at 16:47 GMT
Geo1: I didn't realize that. I'll fix. False comes before True because everything is automatically alphabetized.

May I ask why you chose to make this a clickable quiz? In my opinion it would make more sense as a traditional quiz...less scrolling, and instead of having to worry about clicking the right button you can just keep one finger on T and the other on F. To me at least, that seems simpler...

dan144556: I did it this way because I thought it'd be easier/quicker to click through the answers. I didn't realize until after it was created that you'd have to scroll down for some of the answers. Live and learn...

I like the questions but definitely agree with Dan on the format. The rows & columns kinda made me dizzy.
Jun 6th, 2012 at 20:26 GMT
I love how believable many of the False questions were. Great job!

I believe the answer for #18 about Mark Twain is false, but it was counted as wrong when I clicked it. Twain did not take his name from a riverboat captain.
