Pepperdoc got this right just before I did but he had a dash in it. He should get the points. Way to go Pepperdoc!

Thanks Redwingchick...I used to have the Lone Cypress Tree photo on my profile page eons ago...that's why I recognized it. (I'm a "she" by the way)

Oops! Sorry! I saw it once on a similar game on a photography forum so that's why I recognized it.

Is that the one in the Carmel, California area?

Yes. It's very pretty near the Pebble Beach golf course.

I'm just happy that they FINALLY did a beach somewhere. I went to that beach as a kid but couldn't place it.....Nice job you two!!

Thanks. Funny thing is there was a "where" photo awhile back that showed a tree early in the tile reveal, and I was convinced then that it was the Lone Cypress Tree, so I wasn't completely sure this time.

You're welcome, Taco. Hope it'll be soon. Then you can get "addicted" too!

Taken care of, Pepperdoc. It was the hyphen that messed things up. The system no longer accepts punctuation - not a problem for most commas/periods which are usually followed by a space. The system removes the comma/period and the space remains (which is how we input it). It appears with that hyphen there was no space before or after so the system would remove it and read it as 17mile drive(not on the answer list) instead of 17 mile drive(on the answer list). Hopefully that made sense.

Thanks so much for the explanation, Sploofusmaximus. Ironically, I had copied and pasted 17-Mile Drive from Wikipedia (remembering that it was the source for acceptable spelling). I remember an explanation before about punctuation and or accent symbols. Guess I didn't realize the hyphen would cause a hiccup, too.

After seeing the post the other day on how many different variations you enter on a possible winning guess, I can't imagine how long the list is for every WTHAI guess. When 2.0 goes live for everyone, will the symbol/punctuation caution be noted in the game explanation?

Thanks again. And thanks for the points. And congrats to Redwingchick!

We are hoping that the punctuation explanation will be added to the rules. That's something that only Justin can do and with his current list of problems, that's a low priority right now.
