    Another good quiz but for the third week the automated answers have lost us loads of points, like rose instead of roses and snowdrops instead of snow drops!

      It’s very difficult with the text based answers. We don’t want all multiple choice so will try and offer more indication to the answer criteria going forwards
      Thanks for playing though.

    I agree lost so many points even though answers were correct. Spoils the enjoyment. Dont think I shall bother anymore which is a shame as it is fun but not getting scored for auto text anomalies is not right.

      We appreciate the frustration and will seek to do better next week.
      In fairness though, the round was called “Name the flowers” not “Name the flower”
      Thanks for the feedback it is appreciated and has prompted us to seek and find (hopefully) a better solution at least to differentiate between singular and plural.
      To be clear taking the flowers round as an example:
      SnOWdRoPs
      snowdrops
      Snowdrops
      would all be considered correct next week all of the above would be correct and we will build in the singular as well.
      Thanks again
