It seems that on your trivia quiz that if two people take the quiz at the same time, the questions are getting mixed together.

Even though I got all of the answers correct on the music trivia, it said that I got 2 wrong.

Covered in ads, and popups after the third question.

No wonder you don't have a lot of entrants!

Cool Are there ads on those pages??
Like maybe from a rotating-placement ad-server, which maintains a "juke-box" slide-show of ads in order to "keep them fresh" -- except maybe one of those ads is dangerous?? In that case, "luck of the draw" (in that place at the wrong time) becomes an issue.

"Ah, ad number 43, coming up next -- you are SO lucky"...

Just keep in mind most ad-servers only WORK if WE have scripting enabled.
"Load this advertisement from 'out there' into that space on this page".
The same way that most malware delivery is scripting based.
"Load this trojan from 'out there' into buffer memory for this page".

Yes, disable scripting:
no ads (banner spaces filled with white "page unavailable" messages);
no "page loading" delay; no "malware -- special delivery!".

One of the more common security-breach loopholes around.
And one of the hardest to even catch, let alone plug.
Because everyone remembers "where they were" but not
"what they were seeing" just before the alarms went off.

Have you addressed all the issues from these that we told you about on Dec 31st?

You never came back to that thread to explain why the trivia was so messed up and if it was fixed.

My antivirus thing blocked that site as well. I tried to cut and paste what came up but it wouldn't let me. I stupidly clicked on the link and THEN read the threat.
c'est la vie.
(i use avg antivirus btw)
