The question for the daily trivia question for the 8th April or question #2288 is
"The height of the Pengift species is 0 meters. True or False?".

The answer given was "False".

However the archives have the height at 0 m , which should make it True.

Or am I missing something?

Exactly! It should be correct. I know that "logically" it would be wrong, but they wrote the Archive entry. I also know that 10,000 isn't the end of the world, but that's like a free 100 creatures feed.

I agree, my query wasn't so much about the 10k ec.

It's the being told I was wrong, when the evidence says I was right. Yes, logically the answer should be false, and I almost put that in without checking. But, the archive entry states the answer should be 0m, and therefore true.

Unless it's some sort of trick in the writing of the question which I can't work out.

I've let Ian know about this. Once he's online he will sort it out. The pengift's height/weight information appears to have been reset cause it should not have a height of 0 or weight of 1.
