Remember that just because you did not enter Phase 1, You may still enter Phase 2.

You only need answer the Phase 2 questions and submit your entry. You do not need to answer the Phase 1 questions. That part is over.

I am beginning to think that the Phase 3 questions are too difficult. Are we making you work to hard?

Good Luck to everyone that has entered. :clap:

Looking at the small number of entries that Kip has mentioned, there’s a great chance of a win for someone.

Considerably better odds than most competitions.

You do realise after all this research that there is actually no prize, it’s just Kips clever way of recruiting a new Moderator for the Forum. :lol:

I found the phase 3 questions harder than Phase 2 but slightly more straightforward than phase 1. Might have got lucky or maybe just more used to the archive now with practice which is the whole point!

True. First two phases required a cup of tea each but #2 was easy. #3 required two cups of tea; one to research and one to double check. :D

Good on both counts; thanks for the feedback. The contest was obviously for a limited audience (the forum) and there is a valuable prize at the end. On behalf of the Admin Team, I can tell you that we thought about that. We put in some questions that were easy to find answers to, along with a few others that required a little more research using all available resources and cross-referencing.

I’m glad to hear from you (and others) that you enjoyed it. I can assure you that we had some fun putting it together. :D
