Why only twiter, why not FB too ?
And starting question after 15 00 (or 16 00) will be nice too - you know someone have work too and no holidays during summer.

Almost nobody has an account twitter. I suggest making a Facebook quiz.

I`m so glad you posted that poll to see how many people take part in this twitter quiz and of course its totally unsurprising that a staggering 90%+ have never participated plus another not so staggering 70%+ don`t even have a crapper account,seriously twitter is a piece of crap that only celebs use and teenagers.

Ohh and don`t start using crapbook instead,some people actually don`t get carried away by the heard and don`t have accounts on all the useless social media sites.
Now how about you post it on here on the forums where wot fans are actually looking and have an account!!!.

Thank you.

Yeah well said.

Another waste of time Twitter Quiz. The only thing that could be a bigger waste of my time would be a kackbook quiz, at least Twitter doesn't take 10 years to load a page.

Why not have some of these Quizes here on the forum like you used to do back in the day?

Better still, stop doing all these fluff events and just put all that extra time and effort into weekend specials for your player base; not just teenagers who use crappy social media sites.

OMG, you did not just say that did you? Seriously? Ofcourse that doesn't happen.

Twitter is a valid medium for a quiz to be honest, and Facebook is not (no im not gonna explain why). Also twitter has about 500 million users (?) so if you're not one of them don't blame them.

Now, onto the summer holiday part. I'm working at this very moment but giving twitter a little peak for a good 2/3 minutes at the question times is really not gonna make my boss angry or something. It actually helps if you look away from your work from time to time :).

So suck it up and be happy they even give you a chance to GET money. They don't have to do this you know.. They aren't obligated to give prices :).

What if the first person gets a typo on the quiz but its just a small mistake for example. Accidently typed . Instead of - in T-54 tank, does that count as a correct answer and gets gold?

Yes, I think so.

I like the Twitter Quiz. :Smile_Default:
And it's much simpler to create an Twitter account than one for FB.

I wish people who post in multiple sections (ENG GER and so on) would be excluded from the current quiz... (maybe they are?) because it seems unfair for a guy to try to leech of multiple sections to satisfy his greedy needs for free gold.

I'm saying this now because I just saw a fellow participant (wont give names) posting on the ENG section a few seconds before my post ... looked at his account and saw he also posted on the GER section... ok so how about I start posting on all sections and increase my chances and fuck anyone else huh?... please don't be rubbish people.. choose your own language section and stick to it.

EDIT: haha seems we have someone like this lurking and neg repping me
EDIT2: thanks for whoever + me back

Well I positive repped you so you're back to neutral ;p

Totally agree, there is one person on there who seems to be posting in every single question on several different language sites.

@SpiderXoo7:

Just to mention it: You can win only once per day.

And increasing one's chances to win by taking part on several languages is allowed (or at least tolerated) - and everyone can do so => same chances for each participant. I do not see a problem here... Why don't you post on GER section (or any other), too?

The WoT account is not connected to "one" language. And english is the language for the whole EU-Community.

You can win only once per round twitter quiz regardless of how many sections you answer so you have better chance of winning.

We receive loads of replies in every Twitter Quiz. Maybe it's not that popular but many players are taking part in this contest and they seem to like it.
Facebook quiz is a good idea too.

yes, we have players who are posting their answers in different languages but is there something wrong with that?
