EDITOR...ROTTERDAM WTHAI

On this WTHAI, Brunosexy correctly identified the exact location.

She entered the answer, but did not get it correct according to the Sploofus parameters.....I waited a while,and then entered some variations as per 'Wiki' page title.
This did not achieve anyhing, so I generalised and entered Rotterdam Netherlands...This was accepted as the correct answer.

This seems very unfair, as I was under the impression from previous discussions on this matter, that a number of correct answers would be held in the system but an exact location name would be required in the majority of cases.

I feel that Brunosexy should be awarded the points and further clarification and consistent guidelines are required.


Karen.

Thank you Nelly - those points have been awarded to Brunosexy.

We try to word the WTHAI answers in many different ways, but it can be difficult to impossible to list them all (in some cases there have been over 40 possible correct answers!) In this case "Cube Houses Rotterdam" would have been accepted, but "Cube Houses in Rotterdam" and "Rotterdam Cube Houses" weren't on the list. (We normally wouldn't use "in", and the place names in the answers generally go from most to least specific.)

Thanks again for your help!

Thank you Foolsploof! I know how to word these things is a bone of contention and can't be easy for Editors ... but they can be soooo frustrating at times!

Thanks again
Karen
