FORBIDDEN CHARACTER

While writing a quiz, I had trouble entering a question. The question kept disappearing. Finally after several attempts I notched a note at the top that said I could not use the _ character. I was not writing a 'fill-in the blanks' and cared less about the character until I noticed that my reference used it. I guess we must put our reference in the description. Just thought I would warn writers before they waste a lot of time.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Largest_organism

Many folks do not like "all of the answers" on a quiz since the speed requirement urges folks to grab the first right answer they see. To avoid this and provide the same information, one can have a NOT question... for example, which is NOT one of the Beatles?" In trying this for a few weeks I have learned that people greatly prefer that format. Hence, Allena will not have any more "all of the answers" as an answer. (except of course, whenever Surreyman makes a post)

I can understand the problem - I've more than once put the reference I used for a quiz as a quick note in the first question so that people can't go read the reference material then come back and take the quiz afterwards!

To get around not being allowed to use the underscore character, trying either just saying the word, eg
"reference is www.wikipedia.org/largest [underscore] organism (without spaces)"

or replacing it with something else, eg
"reference is www.wikipedia.org/largest*organism (replace * with underscore)"

Hope this helps.
