If the answer is going to come out as Dale Earnhardt Sr, it should have taken my answer. It's not a matter of needing points, It's the point of the matter.

Now give me some cheese please.

You did guess correctly first. The list of acceptable answers only listed the abbreviation of "Sr." with a period, not without - a minor technicality. I have credited your account with 100,000 points - even though you were not necessarily complaining about the points.

I should have written that as "a minor technicality with major consequences." Many apologies.

I agree that was wrong. I had the same guess but you had already said Dale, so I didn't bother.

I posted a bug earlier on my win (yeah me!)
I had posted what it was
"SORRY! "Vigeland Sculpture" is not correct!"
so I posted WHERE it was
"CONGRATULATIONS! "Oslo, Norway" is correct!"
The "winning notification says"
"Answer was: "Vigeland Sculpture Park" Solved by Kaelin"

I think that's good because it leaves space for interpretation - but that really was a bit out there so I wonder if the answer in the db was something like
"Vigeland Sculpture Park in Oslo Norway"???

It wasn't a bug. You just didn't include the word "park" in your title to indicate the complete name. Acceptable answers included:

vigeland sculpture park
vigeland park
frogner park
oslo, norway
oslo norway

When the puzzle is solved, the top name on the list is given as the answer, even if you guessed an alternate name.

As a note and warning for future puzzles, we (the WTHAI admin) have decided to become a bit more specific for place names. If the picture shows a specific building, the name of the city MAY not be acceptable any longer - especially if the city is a big one that people typically might make as a random guess. We really want to know that you know where the heck you are and aren't just guessing. There are a few puzzles already in the queue that will still accept cities for buildings, though.

I thought the trick was his real name is Ralph Dale Earnhart Sr.

You're all just freaking jealous. Now can we get back to the topic at hand?

Bano, Barry and Larrybus cheat.

Nuff said.

I cheat?
I've got precisely one (1) right.

I'm sure other people have their macros developed to crack pictures; not me.
