I've recently had a round where when it was over the answers said something like, right answer: table, your answer: table. I'm pretty sure this has happened before, don't care about any points or anything but wondering how to let Sploofus know about the problem. Anyone know?

I forgot to mention, the few times I've seen it, it seems to be under the same circumstances. For example, if the answer is "discernment", the answer gets repeated on the list of possible answers to choose from as in the following: Orange
I choose discernment and it says wrong answeriscernment, right answer: discernment. Maybe an editor will view this post and fix it, it doesn't always happen.

sorry about the smiley face, that was an accident.

Maybe the distractor answers are randomly generated so within the great big database there is a certain probability that every once in a while the right answer will also appear as a wrong answer - and you just unluckily picked the wrong one!

But you should fill out a support notification to Justin, just to make him aware of the problem.

When I was still an active WR player ( I quit cold turkey early this year ) I discovered that whenever the same word appeared twice in the list of answers it was usually the correct answer and the first instance of the duplicate word was the "correct" correct answer.

No guarantees that that's still true, but it worked for me.

For me Larrybus, what you say is true most of the time, it's only every once in awhile. Next time I'll copy and paste so Justin or whoever can see it. Anyways, just sent out the support ticket, thanks Suzer.

I can concur with Larrybus' analysis. i always go for the first of the pair, and have never been wrong yet on the 5-10 cases I've seen.
