Default MQ2008 Wall of Fame

This year, in addition to the four prize winners, there were eight entrants who scored 90% or better and have earned a spot on the Wall of Fame.

Here are the ones that emailed me back that I could release their names:

mmarkina, US
Sherry C, US
debadoo, US
Pernaficionado, US
Nina, Denmark
Lady Maelin, US
Deb, Canada

I'll be making banners for you soon...

The Rowan is my favourite!

"The name rowan is believed to derive from the Norse runa - "a charm". It was often planted outside houses to ward off witches. On May Day a spray of rowan leaves was hung over doors to repel evil, and wells dressed with rowan to keep witches away. The rowan, or mountain ash, is found commonly in Scotland, sometimes clinging to a rock face."

Congrats to everyone who made it onto the Hall of Fame list!! I'm looking forward taking a shot at getting on the list myself, once my classes are over and I have time to take the quest! Can't Wait!!

well done all

Are we allowed to improve our scores, Cheryl or once they're in, is that it? I'd like to have another shot at it but would like to know for sure before re-attempting it, if only to get the 6-7 I was stumped on, right for a change.

Of course Maelin, I figured as soon as I got the list up you'd remember you needed to confirm you wanted to be on it.

Banners will come soon, never fear.

And people who took the quest but didn't make the Wall of Fame are eligible to try again (but in that case you're not allowed to know which ones you got incorrect).
