MILAVIA Monthly Quiz - popularity down?
« on: October 31, 2005, 11:37:14 AM »
I am just reviewing the October quiz. I know that the month October went probably really fast for everyone, at least for me it was a quick month. But only 18 people have submitted an answer so far!?

Is the quiz too difficult?

Did everyone have anough quizes?

Is there a problem with the quiz e-mail form?

 ???

If you haven't submitted your guess yet, you have today to do so. With such a low number of participants, your chances of winning the prize have drastically improved.  :o

I, for myself have been digging up my archives and the net since the first day. That is the most difficult quiz ever, I think.

I'm still trying, with not much hope.  :-\

I think It was really tough this time, have not submitted any answer yet. I bet it´s something really easy once we see the answer.  :)

It seems, after 19 months, this will be my first unanswered quiz  :-[

I guess it was too difficult. I thought it was a pretty recognisable feature, the way the black line  curves near the typical boeing-look cockpit windows. But I guess I should have revealed a bit more, anyway still about one third of the people that submitted their guess got it right.

From the very first moment I had seen the picture, I thought it was shot from a certain angle, a little bit high from eye-level.. I never thought it was from the side. That assumption misled me, I guess.

Yup, one window on the pic is totaly on the side and one with bit smaller angle, that was confuesing and made the plane look smaller then it is. I tought it was soemthing with the same size with An-28, not bigger then An-12.  :'( That's why I never got close  :'(
