Bad Question/Answers in Survival Mode?

    This is also frustrating for me. I have seen at least 3 wrong answers in the last couple of days. Also grammar and spelling is terrible. How hard can it be to put a “report” button in there?

    I’m in total agreement. In standard mode I report questions for poor grammar and incorrect answers. There needs to be a way to do this in survival mode or they need to have been validated before they go into the Survival pool.  for example, There are at least three questions asking how many states have a town named Springfield, and all three  of them have different answers.

    It’s a live game mode so cannot be paused to report any grammar or information mistakes unfortunately. I believe the game draws from the same question pool for all the modes. Potential solutions for Survival would be to allow the player to review and report any of the questions seen that round after their turn or, as Victoria suggests, better evaluation of the Q’s.

    Hello all! Thank you for reporting your issues. We understand that having to answer a question with some kind of error is not the best game experience, and we agree it would be a big solution if there was a space to report them, like in classic games. Because of this, we created a post where you'll be able to publish any type of wrong question that you find in other game modes. Whenever you encounter these types of questions, you can take a screenshot and publish them on this post. Our team will take care of them. We apologize for the inconveniences arisen from this situation. Have a great day!

    Replying to Etermax...We appreciate any effort to improve on the situation. But I have to point out that it is extremely difficult to take screenshots of questions while playing in the timed modes—Survival and Tribiatopics come to mind. There just isn’t enough time to take the screenshot before the page switches back to the mode’s Home. The fix for this would be to freeze the page when the player gets a wrong answer. I dontknow if that’s the best solution, though, as it adds another input every time a wrong answer occurs.

    I would highly recommend that the other game modes besides Classic have questions from a bank that includes only questions that have been in Classic mode long enough to have gone through vetting by players. I dontknow how much work this would entail, but I have to insist that it would be worth it to the players. I literally have stopped playing Survival mode due to the frustration, even though it’s the most exciting of the game modes.

    Snowy owl is not an omnivore. It is a carnivore. Question in survival.

    Ecmatheny, I found these statements on Wikipedia: very confusing. 

    Although snowy owls are omnivores, they have a primarily carnivorous diet. 

    Snowy owls are carnivores, more than 90% of their diet consists of the Arctic Lemming

    How about "What's the most common hair color" The real answer is obviously black. Although trivia crack says it's "brown" There's other wrong answers too.

    One that I remember and found to be wrong in survival mode is: What paint is used in pottery and I put acrylic which it is the most commonly used paint, but it had the answer as glaze.

    Ok. I just found a question that said What color of dolphins is impossible and the answer is black, but that's not true. There are Chilean black dolphins and I was disqualified because I answered pink, although all the colors listed are true dolphin colors. I just wish these questions would be better vetted so people don't lose out during play.

    I have now encountered A question that had the wrong answer. The question was “what equinox occurs September 21?”. The answer is fall, even though technically it occurs the third week of September. The answer trivia crack has is “spring equinox”. Spring happens in March. I’ve encountered a couple questions that were the wrong answer. These need to be corrected

    Which animal has the smartest brain? Monkey Ape Dolphin and I forget the 4th animal is not an answerable question. Apes can do things dolphins can’t and vice versa
