At last, I will be able to win (elimination of Dawn, Sparten and Praetor will follow quickly in the name of the Almighty Platypus).

Good job everyone.
 
A little clarification:
Question number 5 is a double question which demands the answer in a certain way.
 
"What was the Thai system of grading people's importance and worth called? When did it begin and end?"
 
So we are asking for a name, and two time marks - the century in which it began and an exact year where it ended.

One of the questions looks like one I suggested a long time ago. Is that why I wasn't given a point?
 
(Meanwhile I've submitted the answer again)

Yes - you are the author of that question so no regular point, but - you will receive bonus for the question (special formular) after the round is finished.

Gcle - I forgot to mention that if the question is not answered in the first round, it will continue to the second round and the bonus points will be rewarded after that.
