After publishing the quiz results, multiple protests have been posted against the “cats on a string” question postulating that none of the multiple-choice answers was correct.
After reviewing the question we noticed that indeed, the answers were calculated with a value for “g” that was different from the one in the question and no answer matched the correct result.
Therefore we decided the only fair thing to do was to remove this question from the points calculation.
Unfortunately, this means that some teams that were previously listed on the grid fell back on the waiting list. We are deeply sorry for the disappointment this will surely cause.
The updated entry list is now online.
