    Isn't it kind of unfair that people can see what everyone else has guessed? Why not do this through PMs?

    i dont think the idea of the questionaire is to reward who got hte answers right - wikipedia has most of them. i think its mostly to make sure entrants are actually reading the thread and participating... that is only a guess though, as i have no affiliation with this raffle (apart from being the winner obviously XD )
