not very fun. especially when you can get the first three answers just by typing "potter." also, i love harry potter, but this quiz is too hard to appeal to most harry potter fans, not to mention the public. wouldn't hold out much hope for this getting called up to the main page.
May 15th, 2010 at 15:16 GMT
Definitely don't accept last names.
May 15th, 2010 at 17:34 GMT
yep, just first names, i'd say. i couldnt get petunia because it wanted dursley when it's a question about her maiden name- just confusing!
May 15th, 2010 at 19:26 GMT
Some of your questions also need rewording. You have no idea how many variations of 'drill salesman' I tried before I realised what you had intended, and likewise with Filch instead of Mrs. Figg. You also need to be a bit more lenient with your answers; the comma in Barty Crouch, Jnr. shouldn't be necessary, and nor should having to type out the word 'nineteen.' A nice idea, but I think it needs a few tweaks.
May 16th, 2010 at 03:48 GMT
the clues are too vague, as said above I tried drill salesman in a dozen variations myself because it's not indicated what you're really looking for here. Makes it too frustrating to even want to continue. So I didn't
May 16th, 2010 at 08:18 GMT
yea after it wouldnt accept drill salesman i tried ****, then i gave up
May 16th, 2010 at 12:22 GMT
I don't think that question was vague. I specifically say to name the company (after revising after reading iamthedancefloor's comment). "Drill Salesman" is not a company, it's an occupation, and will always be one no matter how many variations you give it. So it's not a question of what I'll accept, it's a question of whether or not you know the answer.
May 16th, 2010 at 18:10 GMT
I think they meant the question after the company: "because he's a..." I tried drill salesman there too because I thought it was a follow-up to the company question. And the second to last question needs a "when" because I thought you wanted the location that it takes place.
May 16th, 2010 at 18:57 GMT
You seriously think people were answering "Who works at the company... DRILL SALESMAN". No, people aren't that stupid - as stated above it's the question after and I had the same problem, please change it because it really is too vague - there could be a million things that fit, such as "Boring person", "Fanatic driller", "Workaholic", "Poor man who needs a job", or "Former clown who was thrown out of the circus but had a real talent for selling drills". It's got to be much more specific. Poor.
May 16th, 2010 at 19:49 GMT
yeah i agree because i tried that he was a tool xP
May 16th, 2010 at 22:44 GMT
Oh, see I thought they were talking about the company question. Never mind then.
May 16th, 2010 at 23:29 GMT
sometimes you wanted first names only and sometimes both names...I mean, why not accept "dumbledore" along with "albus dumbledore?" Why not accept both "nineteen years later" as well as "19 years later?" It just got really frustrating and not much fun.
May 17th, 2010 at 00:32 GMT
yeah I don't know how to allow "19" and "nineteen". I would if I knew how.
May 17th, 2010 at 00:47 GMT
You put a "/" to allow alternate answers. For example, it would be "nineteen/19". Which would make "nineteen" the answer that shows up, and "19" also acceptable.
May 17th, 2010 at 01:18 GMT
very poorly made. With half the clues I had no idea what you're asking.
May 17th, 2010 at 01:49 GMT
okay thanks. and what clues should I edit? just saying that I'm vague doesn't really do anything...
May 17th, 2010 at 03:22 GMT
you should accept 'albus dumbledore'. or was it aberforth? also, you should accept 'arabella figg'
May 17th, 2010 at 23:42 GMT
Several issues here. Either accept first and last names for all answers, or accept last name only for all. The mixture of the two is confusing. Mrs Figg is particularly confusing, as you have to type the "Mrs" in order for the answer to work, but putting her actual first name of "Arabella" does not work. Also, James Potter married Lily Evans, not Lily Potter. She became Lily Potter only after they were married, so this question is incorrect. I can't comment on anything after the Pettigrew question, as I simply ceased to be arsed.
May 18th, 2010 at 00:34 GMT
james was prongs because of his ANIMAGUS form, not his patronus. in fact, though harry's patronus is prongs, and we EXPECT that james' is as well, we have no proof of this at all. and backing the arabella figg
May 18th, 2010 at 20:23 GMT
accept more answers, i.e. "Aunt Petunia."
May 19th, 2010 at 02:38 GMT
Accept Alastor Moody and Bartemius Crouch. You accepted full names in all the other questions and just a nickname on those two.
May 19th, 2010 at 21:54 GMT
Bad. This is just a really uninteresting path through Harry Potter. Also, requiring we write out "Petunia Dursley" when she was "Petunia Evans" and the next question is about who she married is dumb. I got it right and it was still annoying. Good idea, horrible and useless execution
May 20th, 2010 at 21:32 GMT
everyone needs to calm down. although there may be some flaws with the test, overall it is really good. saying it has "horrible and useless execution" is ridiculous. if you think it is stupid, then stop taking it and writing mean comments. i think it is very well thought out and clever. good job with the test!!
May 21st, 2010 at 00:33 GMT
thank you, danceislife. And honestly, Devil5231, some of the questions i just needed to link other characters. Like the dursley question. I wanted to ask about Vernon Dursley and his occupation, so I needed some way to get from Petunia Dursley to Vernon Dursley. And I'm not exactly a Sporcle genius, so I don't know how to accept all these different variations of answers. So just calm down. I'm trying to make it as great as I can for everyone, but I can't make it perfect for every single person. So relax.
May 21st, 2010 at 16:02 GMT
hey. looks like you managed to fix most of the problems - i was able to finish it easily once i realized you wanted first & last names. i enjoyed it, at least. can't speak for everyone else who found issues with it.
