    This later edit by 220.240.139.176 actually seems to be related to the quiz. The edits by the IP quoted here (82.240.19.21) isn't, IMHO.

    EDIT:
    I just "undid" those three changes at Wikipedia. The IP shown for these "undos" in the history is mine, just in case anyone wonders. If there was a user with IP 220.240.139.176 logged in here during the time those edits happened I'd recommend to ban that user.

    None of these guys even bother to make a Wikipedia account(Hides the IP) OR use a proxy(Don't know if Wikipedia is good at tracking them).(I might edit that first sentence out... But I don't think cheaters read the forums anyways.) They probably just want an easy win and probably get a flashcart (for free) and leave. And don't even think to use my name because it's already signed up for! [​IMG] Last contest, someone went as far as to try to frame another member(Not giving names) by signing up with a Wiki ID the same as the member here.

    I think that the question that ask for the number of colors that gba can display doesn´t has the correct aswer.
    Btw, I think I made it well, I have passed on 24 questions, the only one that I don´t know was the first GBA FC that GBA Temp reviewed.

    I have a question, if I win, do u ship for free to Brazil...

    Good quiz and have enjoyed searching for the answers - (better than work anyway!) - however I'm still drawing a blank on the first official GBA flash cart review on GBATemp and it's driving me insane! From what I can find they've only reviewed 1 of them on that list, but make references to other carts in other reviews.

    I know the site has undergone loads of changes fairly recently, and the reviews section post date isn't true to the review date either - but were loads of older reviews lost in this move?

    I don't want answers, or help, or hints - but just want to know that the answer is on GBATemp *somewhere*!!!

    Yes, the answer is in GBATemp, if think on it is very easy, give a look at the review list. [​IMG]

    It tries to throw you off by including answers that don't exist.
    But then, what if that first review went offline? Who knows, I'm not exactly an old member.

    to the above, the answer should be extremely easy especially if you did the first ever gbatemp quiz.

    Hey, you're right! Didn't even notice [​IMG] Anyway, this info is found in at least 3 other locations in GBATemp.net, so...

    Examples from previous quizzes (for fun and laughs, no spoilers, even with spoiler tags! [​IMG]):
    All of the answers are good, unless otherwhise noted. Taken from my quiz results. (Comments in parenthesis).

    Quiz #1 - July 2007. No questions were cancelled.
    13. Which of these characters can't be played as in any of the currently released NDS games?
    • Kyle Hyde (Hotel Dusk: Room 215)
    • Miles Edgeworth (Before Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Trials and Tribulations got out, that is. The Japanese GBA game was out though, but it says NDS games in the question... and don't ask me his Japanese name!)
    • Luigi Mario (Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time. And yes, Luigi Mario is an official name [​IMG])
    • Charlotte Orlean (Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin)
    Your answer: Miles Edgeworth

    15. The first Zelda game on the GBA was...
    • A port of an old classic
    • A multi-player only game
    • A game with a tiny hat
    Your answer: A port of an old classic (A little sad when you think about it)

    16. At the time of E3 2006, what was the name of the console now known as "Nintendo Wii"?
    • Nintendo Wii
    • Revolution
    • GameCube 2
    • Dolphin
    Your answer: Nintendo Wii (This one caught some people who thought the name Wii was revealed at that E3. It was actually revealed in a press release some weeks prior: April 27, 2006! E3 was usually the first week of May in that time...)

    21. What does ROM stand for?
    • Really Old Microchip(Not that old... [​IMG])
    • Random Oscillating Microdrive
    • Read Only Memory
    • Ready Open Modchip
    • Rotating Oven Microwave(I don't call my microwave a ROM...)
    Your answer: Read Only Memory ( [​IMG] at some of the possible answers!)

    29. What does the "GBA" stand for in GBAtemp?
    • Grandfather's Bearded Aunt
    • Google Bought All
    • Games Bring Action
    • Game Boy Advance
    Your answer: Game Boy Advance (Pretty easy that one, but it does make you wonder about Costello's Grandfather's Bearded Aunt... Maybe you can find that in France [​IMG] )

    30. Now you've finished the quiz, what are YOU going to do!?
    • I'm going to close the window
    • I'm going to click Submit!
    • I'm going to Disney World!
    Your answer: I'm going to click Submit! (Actually, some people never understood that one...)
    Quiz #2 - May 2008
    8. Which was never a code name for the Nintendo 64?
    • Nintendo Ultra 64
    • Project Reality
    • Nintendo Dolphin
    Your answer: Nintendo Ultra 64
    The correct answer was: Nintendo Dolphin

    (The only question I missed in 2 quizzes (maybe even 3, who knows?). I never saw "Nintendo 64" in the question [​IMG]. But actually, the status of Nintendo Ultra 64 is still debatable, because that name was more used as a marketing name than a code name, really. Project Reality was the code name, and you usually don't change the code name of a prototype, except if the final product is something different entirely. In that case, Ultra 64 was left out a short time before the Japanese release, as Nintendo started its hardware releases with the same international name. Other sources point out to a trademark infringement case with Konami. You should check the history section of Wikipedia's article on that.. But then, this article also states that the first 2 games slated to work on Ultra 64 hardware used entirely different hardware. But then (again), they were arcade games!)

    11. Which Wii title stirred up a large amount of international controversy?
    • Bully: Scholarship Edition
    • Manhunt 2
    • No More Heroes
    • Resident Evil 4
    • All of the above
    Your answer: Manhunt 2
    The answer we were expecting was: Manhunt 2. This question not been taken into consideration in the final results.

    (It is true the question wasn't really clear. But the word "international" was of capital importance here. Did you really get to hear about a Resident Evil 4 or Bully controversy (big enough to be heard of easily, let's understand) here in North America? Not really. In the UK? That's another matter, but the UK isn't the world yet [​IMG].)

    13. What was the color of the first key you collect in the classic FPS 'Doom'?
    • Yellow
    • Blue
    • Green
    • Red
    Your answer: Red (Yay for retro games! I actually remembered that one by heart [​IMG])

    18. Which of these cultural icons DO NOT have a videogame on a Nintendo console?
    • Michael Jordan (He has more than one I think. Example: Michael Jordan in Chaos in the Windy City - SNES)
    • Chester Cheetah (More than one too. Example: Chester Cheetah: Too Cool to Fool - SNES, GEN)
    • Shaquille O'Neal (Shaq-Fu, anyone? [​IMG])
    • Kool Aid Man
    Your answer: Kool Aid Man (But still... Chester Cheetah and Kool Aid Man... cultural icons? what a culture US has! [​IMG])
    How things change in 1 year... See inside.
    17. As of today (7th of July, 2007) what are your options if you want to load a Virtual Console game downloaded off the web?
    • GCOS
    • The Wiinja Deluxe
    • The CycloWiz
    • None, you have to buy them.
    Your answer: None, you have to buy them.

    Quiz #1 - July 2007
    22. What is the largest retail game so far released for the Nintendo DS?
    • 428Mbit
    • 512Mbit
    • 1024Mbit
    • 2048Mbit
    Your answer: 1024Mbit

    Quiz #2 - May 2008
    23. What is the maximum file size ever used by a Nintendo DS game (as of May 2008)?
    • 256 mbits
    • 512 mbits
    • 1024 mbits
    • 2048 mbits
    Your answer: 2048 mbits

    Hey guys, on question 17:
    the correct answer isn't there unless I am misreading something. I own that game and when I went to count all the games it came 1 higher than the closest multiple choice answer. WTF? Anyone else have any trouble with this?

    Wow, the editing going on is crazy. Maybe a thought for the next compo makers, don't get the answers off of Wikipedia?

    The correct answer is there. If you found your information on wikipedia, check the recent change history of the article because it may have been altered by people who find funny to do so in order to see you check the wrong answer. So be careful about wikipedia.

    I have the game. I didn't use wikipedia. I physically counted the games and it came one more than the closest multiple choice answer. Is there supposed to be nonplayable games in the gallery that I am supposed to count as well or something.
