Hey all,
The quiz committee tried to make this a challenging and interesting event for you all. So please take some time and participate. I'm afraid that if not a lot of people enter this quiz, Zenai will become even more cranky than usual. :P

But seriously, it's multiple choice, so at least enter, snatch up the questions you know, do a little research for the ones you don't and for the really, really hard ones, just take a stab at it.

Best of luck!

Heyo lads. Just a request to simplify logistics. If you have questions about the quiz, please PM one of the committee members directly. That way things don't have to go through a middle man (ie. me) and can hopefully be addressed more quickly.
