When I click on this it tells me I've already filled in the quiz... I haven't. Humbug.

21 correct. Early leader! Happy Christmas.
In reply to jon:

Doh, that's a bug. The results are saved in a new database now but that message is still looking at last years. If you fill in the answers your score will indeed go on this years leaderboard.

Edit: Sorted

Sorry, have now taken the lead with 50%.

Couldn't be bothered to even try the anagrams; didn't suprise myself with some of the photos I recognised - sado

Seasons greetings to all.

Same here. Did one.

The anagrams would be better if you knew whether they related to a route, person, mountain etc rather than just any of those.

Found this quiz pretty hard!

The first winter crag has two entries in the database - one seems to be for the summit, the other for the crag itself. Can’t really tell when selecting it so easy to pick the wrong one - I must have done as it said I got the answer wrong.

Some of the questions were quite easy, others very hard. Guess it depends what news you’ve followed and if you’re any good at anagrams!

I have submitted an entry - is there any way I can save the quiz to look at later.
In reply to Michael Gordon:

That's not a bad shout... next year

In reply to keith-ratcliffe:

Do you mean save your current answers and submit it to the leaderboard at a later date?

I got 10 right but if it isn't grit I don't really know about it

In reply to Paul Phillips - UKC and UKH:
No, out of pure curiosity I just wanted to save it to try and answer the questions I couldn't get and check on the ones I got wrong. I assume that your system would stop me from re-submitting!
In reply to keith-ratcliffe:

OK, I'll build that into the system for the next quiz. You can submit multiple times at the moment by the way. It'll show you a score and your right/wrong answers but it only saves to the score to leaderboard on the first submission.

Thanks - I screen - shot the anagrams to work on with pen & paper which was useful. Great quiz by the way.

Currently stuck on the anagrams; doing the same as you working them out with pen and paper. Not knowing what they refer to makes this rather hard.
