Hopefully you can see a new 'Quiz' button added to the menu bar at the top of the screen. I've added one quiz to get the ball rolling and will add more as I get the time. Let me know what you think.

Yay, I failed miserably but I like the concept. WW2 military isn't exactly my best subject (aside from the Hurricane, Spitfire or Lancaster  :-[

Yea I was going to ask if we could make our own quizes. How about aircraft identification quizes, abit like the ones on airliners.net. They are quite entertaining to to.

Didn't do much better to be honest  :-X I have submitted my own quiz for review. A great addition to the site Casper, it might start attracting in some members that have been sitting on the sidelines. Kudos!

Opps.. theres a wrong answers selected as the correct answer in my civil aviation quiz  :-[ I thought I had double checked all the answers. The A380 first entered service with Singapore Airlines, and not Emirates! If it can't be changed, the quiz should probably be deleted and I can redo it.

EDIT; Just delete the quiz  Casper as thats probably the easiest/only way, I'll make up a new one and triple check it. Trust me to mess it up :(

Let me know if it isn't  ;)

You might want to import the quiz image files too from the quiz importer. Just click on the green import icon.

Hopefully this is only temporarily. I had a problem with this and the server move. Just a setting on the server that has to be changed - I hope :)
