I'm not the best at films, but I don't think that photo is Dustin Hoffman

It's not often that CC suggests the wrong answer.

But would we know? I've just seen the question 'What is Sarah Taylor's highest ODI score?'. I don't even know what ODI stands confused smiley for (the answer given seemed to be correct). I've seen one or two in the past but I don't check everything, they were blatant ones rather like the Dustin Hoffman one Pippin noticed. smiling smiley

It's the first incorrect answer I've ever noticed in 3 years

Pippin, if you look back in the Forum postings I logged a post headed 'Incorrect Answers', letting people know that a particular competition had been credited with an incorrect answer and supplying the correct one. You replied saying that you also had recently seen an incorrect answer so this isn't the first you've noticed in 3 years. Lizziejayne also commented that she'd seen errors.

Don't we deserve the correct information? Some people say that 'it's only £10 per year' but that surely isn't the point. We pay for a service; we should expect the answers supplied to be correct, the links to work and prizes to be sent in a timely manner (Den). If it was a mobile phone service or a broadband connection that was repeatedly wrong in some way people would be demanding action to be taken so why do we accept shoddy service from C.C.?

It's handy having the listings in one place but the same competitions - and more besides - are listed elsewhere for free. Maybe C.C. needs to remember that.

Apologies - I have contradicted myself. I truly can't remember the first incident but it is there in black and white to see.

I always report any errors. I then Google the competition, work out the answer if necessary, enter the comp and finally mark it as entered on CC. So no need for me to revisit it on CC.

Generally I have found the accuracy of answers and links on CC is good, the CC team provide a superb service.

Hi
Thank you for letting us know. I'm sorry that the wrong answer was submitted but i have just updated the competition with the correct answer.
Kind regards
April

April, your answer puzzles me, I've just checked and, yes, the link now takes you to the competition advertised. The answer now corresponds with the competition question, it hasn't been changed - there was no need for it to be changed. But it's correct so thanks for sorting it.

Miketerry why, every time I point out a glitch, you reply, seemingly trying to make me sound as though I'm complaining for the sake of it? I try hard to sort out errors that I find for the benefit of members, such as yourself. A lot of my comments are made behind the scenes, I've been in touch with April for some time now and she seems to be making progress with queries that have been posted. Remarks such as yours make me wonder why I bother.
