Welcome to February, and a new AnswerBank! We're still ironing out some of the teething troubles, and we're glad you're sticking with us. Here's our quizzes for February.

Check back to the January Quizzes and Puzzles Round Up thread to see quiz and puzzle results updates, thanks from setters and how much money was raised!

NOTICE: Please remember it is vital that you add contact details i.e. email or postal address, the closing date, the cost, where the quiz funds will be going and the theme of the quiz, thanks.

Can't stand this new version. And I am not the only one. If, as was said yesterday, it is to help people who use a tablet then could you please use two versions instead of bamboozling your older users?
Question Author
Afternoon CAJJES,

Two thirds of AB members use either a tablet or a smartphone of some kind, we kind of have to give them a way to get on.

The design method is called "responsive design" which means that the same site displays differently on different screen sizes.

If you could let me know what you don't like, then we can take it into account and maybe improve things for those who haven't been convinced yet. I can't do anything for you unless I have specifics however.

Additionally, if the site is looking very weird to you (like the new site is trying to wear the old site's clothes, text bleeding out etc) then you need to refresh your browser (CTRL+F5) and clear your browsing data. You can find out about fixing that here: http://www.theanswerbank.co.uk/ChatterBank/Question1535409.html

As always, happy to have a discussion about improving the site here - especially for Quizzers, as you're an important part of the site, who are quite hard to get the attention of!

All the best,

AB Editor.
I did post yesterday that this topic, 'Quizzes & Puzzles Round Up' perhaps would be better in the large open space above the questions and answers and not amongst them even though you have kept them at the top. It would then make it stand out as it was before.
Is it possible to get rid of the repeated icons, question etc at the bottom of each thread..
