Yes, you're right. Thanks for spotting this for me. Sorry for the mistake but I guess it was easy to guess anyway as almost all the replies were good :)

Supercharge, is it possible that you write the name of the person who answered first on the question(the winner) at the same time when you give us the correct answer?
I think that would be very nice thing to do.

I didn't answer because I thought I was wrong and was searching for the correct answer...

4th question.
Maybe I'm a little bit overexact but the factory was:
Харьковский Тракторный Завод (Charkovskiy Traktornyj Zavod) which is translated to Kharkiv Tractor Factory.
Not to Locomotive. Locomotive and Tractor are completly different type of machines.

When are you going to distribute gold? I'm listed as a winner but haven't received anything yet.

Normally the winners get their gold some hours after the announcement.


But besides that, I have to make a complaint about the selection of the winners:

1. For Question 3 someone was chosen as first correct reply who wasn't the fastest. Not even close. 11 others where much faster than him (about a minute), as we can see at the realtime list. How could that happen? Wouldn't it be possible to use the official Twitter Search instead of TweetDeck? So you could avoid such problems and it would be more understandable for the participants. Or at least do a double check with your results.

2. I noticed (again) that you just selected the second correct reply as "random reply" (in four of five cases). How do you get the random winners? Slower users won't have any chance to win if you pick the two fastest replies as winners that often.

There were 9 others faster than you... (ref.: https://twitter.com/...WorldofTanks_EN)

Answer of Prohibition was created at: "Wed, 23 May 2012 10:00:59 +0000"(ref.: http://search.twitte...%20from:k_damir)
Your answer: "Wed, 23 May 2012 10:01:10 +0000"(ref.: http://search.twitte...rom:Lord_Amruth)

So there are 11 seconds between your answers. That's why you did not win.
