The River Esgalduin
you got it right but answered to early see rule on front page.
you got it right but answered to early see rule on front page.

No, the rule only applies to the person who got the last correct answer so that they have to wait a day before they can answer again allowing someone else a crack at the question,

There is one exception: If during the 24 hour waiting period a second person correctly answers the new question and I post an even newer question, then the first person can go ahead and answer the newer question and the new waiting period now applies to the second person.

This rule was instigated because if a person was always here just after I posted the question and they always answered it correctly; no one else would ever get a chance to answer it. This still may not solve the problem for everyone, but it usually works well for most.

So, Aldaradan gets the pretty bauble Happy Elf Smilie but must now wait 24 hours while Turgon is free to answer the following question:

Alqualondë means 'Haven of.....' what Question Smilie

Etharion you are correct.
