Assuming you have your answers in an array fetched from the database, just shuffle that array (any amount of answers possible) and pass the selected word in your navigation and check on the next page if the word in your navigation is the correct one. No idea what you were planing with printing all 24 (4!) possibilities.

I posted the suggestions in the original post at the beginning of this topic: make the answers randomly placed and not in a fixed order, so that the correct one is not always at the same place in the series (see the example I gave above) and add some more difficult words like sincerely, necessary and exercise (it's possible I already misspelled them). Best, WW

DaveS has retired, but looks like the updates could still be made by someone with available time.  Smiley

Indeed.  And Dave helped me A LOT in my early days as an Admin and fledgling coder.  He debugged a lot of things for me, and taught me how other things work.

I am still nowhere NEAR that caliber of coder Dave was, but I am okay with that.  My coding is sometimes sloppy, but it DOES WORK...which, to my view, is the most important thing.

That said, I have not a lot of spare time myself at the moment.

But what suggestions have you got in mind for the spelling bee?  Maybe I can find some time or someone else can.

That said, the placement of the navigations...for the correct word...it seems as if that ought to be possible...and the idea is intriguing to me, actually.

Seems like a randomizer could be added to mix up the order of the navigations.

Incidentally, with four choices there are 24 possibilities of the order of 1,2,3 and 4 - I believe.

The thing would be...how to do this with a randomizer that does not involve doing the actual navigations 24 times?  I'd have to work on that.

One could assign a letter, say a thru x to represent 24 possibilities.  But how to do it so that the navigations lines appear only once...that is the trick.

Well, if the coder of the original module is still active over here, please consider this as a request to update this module. If the original coder isn't active over here anymore, I suggest this as a new project? Best, WW

I'd leave that to the original programmer.  Should they ever decide to work on and update this module, I would the use the updated version.

I indeed was talking aobout Esoterra or Xanterra (on your site) and I was not sure of it, but indeed you have a  desert in Xanterra on your site. The usual forest on the Harry-Potter-themed website I often visut, is already called "the forbidden forest" but there is a town in the hp-books in which a graveyard is mentioned: Little Hangleton was the hometown of Voldemort's father and grandparents, and Voldemort was reborn on the graveyard where his father was burried. There are cruel creatures in several books: a snake that's hidden in a death woman's corpse (hp-7), inferi (death people who are doing a dark wizard's bidding =hp-6), the elves that are described in the disk world series of Terry Pratchett, the icy creatures that are haunting the northern countries in the "song of ice and fire", ... Perhaps this desert or tundra should get more attention and perhaps needs some extra hallowe''n forest events specifically designed for this forest itself? If there's some interest, I surely can write some scenario's? You can mail me by using my gmail-account with more concrete info or questions what you need and I'll try to help. Best, WW

Unfortunately, the way events trigger and then end, makes it literally about impossible to make it work right...at least, with my somewhat limited coding ability.

Incidentally, on my site, there is another reason why no special events trigger in the special fighting areas...it is by design, and has to do with my birds module.  Any more info on that would present the risk of revealing a game secret, so I won't, but know there IS a peripheral reason for the lack of events in the special fighting areas beyond a lack of ability to make the navigation at the end of an event work properly.

Hi, I often encounter the spelling bee during gaming. But I found out that the questions become easy to answer if you can remember the order of the answers. I will copy an example:
"Choose

1)insuficient

2)insuficiant

3)insufficient

4)insufficiant


The Spelling Bee
Question One


Choose the correct spelling of the following word:

What is it called when you don't have enough of something?

1)insuficient
2)insuficiant
3)insufficient
4)insufficiant"
In this example, the correct answer is always 3.
I think it would be more challenging if the answers are randomly placed themselves; so you have to pay attention on how the answers are written down and not remember at which place the correct answer is.

I also would suggest to include more words. I personally always have difficulty with sincerely or exercise. It's possible I spelled them incorrectly. In French Exercise also exists and as soon as you see the words both in English and French, the confusion is starting. I suppose there are more difficult words in English.
In the current spelling bee game I easily can win the contest, and yes, it's frustrating to lose. But I like the idea of learning things while gaming.
Just a suggestion to make this sub-game more challenging.

Perhaps this is not possible to programm easily?

Best, WW
