In the hubbub of guessing this morning, I didn't notice the other guesses. In checking now, it looks like Embrb had the right location but the name wasn't listed on the editors' answer sheet. Here's the list:

Namsan South Korea Pepperdoc
Gyeongju Pepperdoc
Namsan Pepperdoc
Namsan Gyeongju Pepperdoc
Toham Mountain Embrb
Mount Namsan Pepperdoc
Leshan Grand Buddha Pepperdoc
namsan Embrb
Buddha face near Mount ... Ppragnell

The wiki entry was confusing because it had Namsan (Gyeongju), so it was hard to come up with the right permutation that would be accepted. (The official name on the WTHAI was Gyeongji South Korea.) Embrb had Namsan earlier, and it looks like Ppragnell could have been on the right location (couldn't see the rest of the guess), because it looks like that was the cutline under the photo on the Wiki page.

I sent in a supprot ticket, but was hoping to get an editor's attention in case they could be given the 100K or gold membership.

The complete list of designated acceptable answers follows:

gyeongju south korea
stone buddha south korea
silla buddha south korea
silla stone buddha
mt namsan gyeongju
mount namsan gyeongju
mt namsan gyeongju south korea
mount namsan gyeongju south korea
namsan south korea
gyeongju national park
gyeongju national park south korea

We keep trying to make it clear that a lone (well-known) city name, state name, or country name is NOT enough to identify a Where. In hindsight I would agree that 'Namsan' alone should have been acceptable as well, as that is a rather obscure city name.

However, it appears that Ppragnell had a correct answer first, so his/her account will be creditied with the win. And sorry twice over to Embrb; better luck next time!

(we don't really take away the winnings form the person who got the glory, we just add the points or membership to the other person's account)
