I acknowledge that what you say is true. In view of this, when an answer comes up different from what I have found, I will always PM the person and ask how they got their answer. If they are the first person with A
correct answer that they show that they indeed got from The Cat Site, they will be the winner. Also, in cases of dispute, I wll always PM the authority before awarding the points. Such a case is right now, I am awaiting an official answer to a question on the internal workings of a search engine from Ryan. The end result though is that the correct answer will always be given in the end and as I have stated many times, I learn just as much as anybody else running these contests. I also encourage our members to PM me with questions they would like to see used. I always value the input of members such as yourself and will always strive to make KatKwiz an informative source of information for using this wonderful site. Whenever there is any confusion or dispute over an answer, I will always use an arbitrator as I am now doing with KatKwiz 57. And I DO thank you all for your input. And now I need to go look for a question there can be no doubt on for KatKwiz #58!
I just wanna keep giving points away and I listen to all input. And act as best I can. Somebody is always going to get the points unless there is no correct answer whatsoever and that has only happened once to date.
