@TheresaV 

Pleased you enjoyed the quiz and well done on getting a Red Thinker...

You do realise that you`ve got a Red Thinker three times on the bounce - Mon 26 Jul; Wed 28 Jul; Mon 02 Aug ?? smile So maybe a little bragging to a certain Community manager when he`s back ??

Good luck with today`s WRQ.

 

@Cleoriff 

Pleased you enjoyed the quiz and well done on getting a Diamond Thinker.

As you mentioned, this was possibly the hardest WRQ so far - and the second tallest building did catch quite a few out.

I hope you, and everyone else, finds today`s "Odd Questions" edition of WRQ much easier - and there is no Morse Code question smile
