I have just noticed that there is another quiz called Who am I? The quiz I have set is also called" Who am I"? Mine is 30 questions and not photos.
and mine is for Macmillan Cancer Support. Didn't realise myself until I had posted mine that there is another one of the same name.!but different quiz and organisation. I suppose it must happen sooner or later. (two different quizzes of the same name)
Sorry, I need to put my brain into gear. my last post does not apply about two quizzes of the same name. After reading it properly the other quiz is Who am I. Mine is Where am I.
Are any of the recently added quizzes available via email ?
Forget-Me-Not Quiz for Alzheimer's Society (posted above) is available by email from:
