Well i don't know if any of you have this on your browser, the square one. It is to help you search by image. So if you place an image on the quiz, you just paste and copy it. Then go back to your browser, click on it and it will give you the answer most of the time. Things have never been the the same since they got rid of the flash gear one. The one that you could not cut corners with. So i have come to the conclusion that creating a quiz is a waste of time.

Bugger! So IT can do it all for you, without much effort.
I was doing it the old fashioned long and laborious way by looking for clues and searching with keywords etc - Wasting a lot of my time apparently, never mind.

Image reverse .....try it on Google........

https://tineye.com/

"Google Lens"

"Sparkie" has been battling this for over a decade in one form or another.

Every pic i have posted has had to be scanned to eliminate its use.....is why i have used screenshots from Youtube so often.....
It largely defeats image reverse.

Before anyone suggests ..."no one would bother using image reverse in a quiz.....what would be the point"?

....Let me assure you....... people do......one here in particular.

He thinks i don't know which has caused me amusement for many years......i have set a number of traps for him.....he never failed me.



A waste of time?

Given the number of questions which have not been correctly answered i would disagree...... image reverse can be defeated but its time consuming to say the least.

Given the number of "views' of both SN and SH quizzes..... people have clearly enjoyed the content over
14 years.....

I wouldn't say it was a waste of time.

Me saying 'A waste of time' was not the quiz itself. I meant one would be wasting their time because you always get the ones who will answer them by underhand means. Over time players become discouraged. Maybe one day we can find a way to defeat these short cuts like 'Google Lens', previews and ghost images. Are we done yet ?. We will have to wait and see.

Eyup Sparkie, my only problem with it was by the time i thought about it someone had already answerd it and you had told them (correct). so there was no point of me still looking.There must of been some very clever people out there. Now you have packed the quiz in please keep posting your other interests, rgds rustytrawler

.........The same blokes who make Guinness in Nigeria.

There is more Guiness sold in Africa than in Ireland and Uk combined.
