All is going well so far it seems. Just a reminder, please submit an answer only once. The scores are updated every four hours, and then you will be able to find out if your answers are correct or not. If it is wrong, you can then submit a different answer.
Thanks

Question 3 could do with a little explanation. What does "an ignited address" mean? An inflammatory one? Are we looking for the general name for such an address, or the title of a specific one?

And was the address made famous by two great Greek and Roman orators, or did they make the political figure famous?
Citizen of Ankh-Morpork
Never believe anything until it has been officially denied - Sir Humphrey Appleby, 1984.

I have updated quesiton 15, to make it more clear. I would avise you to reread it.

So the second time that you enter any answers it is not necessary to enter the ones you have gotten right in your previous attempt?

The scores have been updated again. Next update in 4 hours.

Note, there is about 8 hours left in Round 1 of the quiz. This means that there is only 1 (we might make it 2) updates remaining in the first round. Make sure you make all submissions by then, and good luck!

Argh! Sorry for not responding gcle, I'm confused as to why I didn't...
I see you have got the answer now.
For everyone else though, in this case an ignited address is a fiery one, but not necessarily insulting or defamatory.
We are looking for the specific name given to this type of address...
The address was made by two great Greek and Roman orators.
Hope that clears up everything. Again, I apologise for not responding prior to this.
