Let the "How They Award Points" analysis continue...
Looks like keyword spamming is the way to go!

I'm glad to see it's not just me who is having trouble with the Flash.

Note to all web site designers: Your web site should be fully usable WITHOUT Flash. :grr:

I entered Sebah (spelled wrong), Malaysia, Borneo on Day 2 and recieved 1500 points. Corrected it on Day 3, but thought for sure I would only get the 1000 pts.

Well, first off, it sucks that we still can't access the Anywhere Challenge page, nearly 2pm UK time and still having the same problems.

Second, points posted, and I didn't get points for my Alaska answer

I've got 1500points which I'm pretty sure was for my answer of
Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia

I didn't get the Alaska one correct til I believe the third day so I could at most get 1000points, which I did not receive. My answer was as follows:
Kenai River, AK USA

I did it in this format since they list their example answer as having the state abbreviation rather than the full name of the state.

So I only got credit for one of the answers. Not very encouraging. (Though of course it is nice to have earned 4000points this month, pushing me into Gold Member status for the first time in 5 years, woohoo!)

There's a Dedicated THREAD for the "HAve you got your points" posts.

Would be nice to keep this thread to educated guesses for the pictures

You may feel lucky, as instead of 3000 points I've received nothing with two correct answers. I thought that was because I'm from Europe, but the guy in Germany had the points.
