Scores updated...

I see that people either don't have much time or the questions are too difficult. Oh, and the questions (all of them) were written with a specific answer in mind. So, get it or... but if you find an alternative answer to the question, that fits with all given points in the question and yet unavailable hint, then you'll get 0.5 points.

There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.

Questions need more revelations...Because there may be a hundred of similar events, especially for 1-2 questions.
 
Anyway, I seemed to detect a problem in the question regarding the four ensigns, I dropped a note to you rider, among my answer...Or maybe I have found the wrong answer, as there are many who found the right one.

Kapikulu, the answer was correct.

There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.

Expert quiz writers wrote these entries. If you have a problem, you can take it up with them.

Also, keep in mind that there is often one key word or phrase that gives away the right answer.

But we will keep your criticism in mind and make a point of writing in the key phrase. Hey, maybe we can even write in a theme as crossword puzzle makers do!
To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.

Lol...

Anyways, Scores updated.

And Kapikulu, tell me which questions have several answers? As said, the answer must be correct and correspond both, to the question and the hint (currently you can't see that one). But without this remark, which ones do? Okay, I admit, 12th is a little wide but the hint makes it clear... and one answer has been terribly close to it too. - I read the pm Kapikulu. I will talk with the author.

Scores updated (no clear update seen however).

I wanted to point out a few things; for those that don't know yet, Question 20 is worth a total of four points (one for each of four questions posted in 20 and 21). That might boost your stats. If it passes into the second round, the total would be 1.5 for each question, ergo 6 points...

And I am getting very interesting answers for number 6. Still, Dawn got the right one so it is pretty easy to figure that out if you begin in the correct direction. Some others have also gone onto the right path, although the quotes are wrong. Anyways, I will surely post the better sounding of the answers when the quiz is finished.

Sorry. Indeed question 7.

Now, I got an interesting remark for number 15 which stated that there are many such battles. Indeed, I know there are. And I know that I have multiply stated that the right battle must also apply to the hint, that you cannot currently see. Still, I encourage you to keep searching.

I must say that is a departure from all other quizzes. In the past if you could prove that your answer fit the peramiters of the question exactly as it was written(no hint) then you were awarded points or portions of points. I'm not sure I like this direction- writting question specifically to make a round 2.

The question, especially that one, needs a hint...If we are to search to try and fit a hundred answers, then that question is already destined for Round 2...
 
e.g. as I remarked in my answer, that battle exactly fits the definition as well.

Alright.. then I say that every answer correct to the current question will get 0.4 points, but if the question isn't answered fully in this round, it will pass to the next with an hint? Also, the person wanting to have the answer read right must pm me or include things corresponding to the question in the answer. I will look through some of the current answers already (questions up to 10).

Well I don't have much time these days, which is my excuse. WinkOn the other hand, I must admit that I did try my hand at first and got frustrated because I thought that a couple of questions simply allowed for way too many answers (and mine got rejected). It's a good quiz though: I'll try to give it another shot before it's over.
