    Besides, making the quiz in-game does not mean having to create tons of unnecessary graphics. Focusing on the main point to allow most players to participate. The quiz itself could still remain in English. The current route to forum if you were to do so in the game would require you to click on the little gear icon on the bottom right, click on the ? icon. Wait for the entire screen to blur out and load up 2 more pictures where you have to click yet again for the forums.

    It would be easier to reduce such graphics and perhaps allow the programmers to free up themselves to have more time to do the main elements of the game. Making lots of graphics and sprites do not seem all that important compared to the gameplay

    I can imagine sifting through the answers is an incredible pain. Perhaps next time, assuming the devs still have not implemented the in-game option, it would make sense to just use a system where you select one of x answers, and the computer instantly spits out whether it is right and you cannot access it after the time is up. Not sure if such things exist in the forum per se but I'm sure there are pre-programmed versions out there or that it's less work for someone to write a script than doing all this manually. Of course, this would exclude opinion or creative questions, but I assume everyone just gets a point by default for those anyway.

    Hey folks,
    Thanks for the enjoyable event. I'm a patient person, sitting quietly waiting for the results (but hopping on the inside like a kid waiting for Christmas morning). I just want to add my gratitude for your obviously hard work putting this out. Please excuse those who cannot sit on their anxiety for results. The vast (but silent) majority thank you. Please don't regret your efforts.

    Thanks for that. The very first question has me confused. It asks how much extra population a level 3 Elf residence provides. Not being an Elf player I had to resort to the wiki and when I looked up an elf lvl 3 residence under the column Additional Population (hover mouse over two people icon) it clearly states 5. Yet the answer is 3

    Grr. I knew I was bound to make a mistake somewhere in there while typing that up. :p

    The answer to question one is indeed, 5! :)

    Thanks to both of you for catching that and sorry!

    Anyone know what the results for the New Year Event were. Did anyone win anything or is my player ranking 3059 to low to be considered?

    I do have an issue with the answer for day 16, As of the time of this post, how many days has it been since Elvenar International opened?
    The answer given is 202 + or - 1 day. The following is quoted from the website:
    "We would like to thank everyone of you, our Community, for helping us test the game here on Beta and making it possible to launch our International and German versions today!

    Muf-Muf,May 27, 2015"

    May 27 - 31 = 5 inclusive
    June = 30
    July = 31
    August = 31
    September = 30
    October = 31
    November = 30
    December = 16 by the day count of the question.
    Total = 5+30+31+31+30+31+30+16 = 204 days

    Are you not including the first day?
