I knew I wasn't going to perform well this time... anyway, thanks @Mi-Amigo for this last great summer activity on the community and well done everyone!

@Mi-Amigo I've noticed you had to adapt the way you post the answers and awards, do you reckon it was an issue with the community platform?

Thanks Mi-Amigo for persevering despite the lack of C&P, must have taken even more effort than normal. At first I was thinking: ‘where are all the stars’… Did we all fail miserably but then saw your post explaining it.

 

Pretty happy with my result despite knowing very little of the answers. Hopefully I fare better in the Monday WRQ.

 

Well done to everyone for this WRQ (the last summer activity) and actually for all summer activities throughout the event. Really enjoyed them all. Cheers. 👍🏻 👏🏻

Thank you @pgn @BobM @Cleoriff @MI5 @gmarkj @RafaC @Comben 

Pleased you all enjoyed the quiz and well done on your awards - even if the usual stars and awards list was missing this time.

The good news is that "copy and paste" now seems to be working again on the forum so hopefully this was a one-off.

I`ll search out the questions for Monday`s WRQ over the weekend and will try and find a few easier questions.
