This is my first CRACK at a Safe Cracker, so if any safe cracker expert reads this comment, can you let me know if I should change or fix anything on it? I hope you all like it!

Well I'm certainly no safe cracker expert. I think I've only made one myself so this is just my *personal preference* rather than any accepted technique:
I always find the "answer in alphabetical order" instruction a bit unnecessary. It makes the game overly complicated as you have to try and hold 6 or 7 bits of information in your head and then try to rearrange them (which is a trivial task and not what the quiz is really about). I always think that a better solution is to use either bonus answers or a hidden 3rd column to reveal a code which unlocks the next column. This way you don't have to force order and players can just type whichever answers they think of first. You can either choose to make it a meaningful code (something relevant to the next column) which players can decode early if they are stuck on just one answer, or you can make it a nonsense code if you want to force them to get every answer before they are able to move on. This method also means you can accept Prokaryota as an alternative to Monera for anyone more familiar with that term.
The way you've done it is perfectly acceptable and it works fine though. It's how most people go about making them. It just made me have to cheat a little to check out the rest of the quiz because otherwise I would have got stuck about a dozen times and had to start again.

@bazmeralda. Thank you for that incredibly detailed comment. The funny thing is, the quiz that I played direclty before making this quiz was of that description, but I didn't even THINK to make it like that. I will definately go about changing that the next time I have free time. I, too, was mad that I couldn't accept both prokaryota and monera, but of course now I am able to. I know it would be fine the way it is, but I also have to cheat a little and do the quiz over several times to complete it.

Okay, people! This quiz has been totally remodeled, thanks to bazmerelda!

Because you accept animal for animalia, plant for plantae, and protist for protista, can you accept bacteria for monera?
Jul 7th, 2011 at 13:41 GMT
@gustavpolo, bacteria is technically a domain in the monera/prokaryota kingdom, so it wouldn't be correct to accept bacteria as an alternate answer. It would be like accepting mammalia or mammal for animalia. It would not be correct.

Why'd it have to start with biology? Gaaaah!
Oct 15th, 2011 at 16:30 GMT
surely you mean the LONGEST bones in the human body? the hip bone, for example, is definitely larger in total volume/weight than the seventh rib. Also, the six-kingdom system is much more commonly accepted these days, with monera being divided into archaea and eubacteria.

lol. who uses the five kingdom system anymore?

Thanks for the curator pick, @Raysrule!

Very good quiz, although I agree it seems strange to start with the hardest category (the names are not everyday words). Incidentally, of the longest 7 bones in my body, 2 are femurs: are we only looking at half a body here? ;-)

you got the kingdoms wrong. I don't know if this is like a scientific name or not but it's protists ancient bacteria animals fungi plants
