If the job was to ruin and demolish the site, that job was done perfectly.

I also regret the quizes are no longer on the site. As an aircraft interiors professional I used to tease my brain by solving the interors quizes.

I've never actually heard of quizzes on A.net before...so I can't really grieve over their disappearance. Can someone give me a description of what they were for?

It was an aircraft identification quiz. You'd be shown random pictures from airliners.net had to identify the aircraft from a list of possible choices. It probably wasn't the most popular part of the site; I'm guessing a lot of people didn't even know it existed, but I did find it a fun way to kill some time when I was bored while also honing my planespotting skills.

I agree.

It was the aircraft interior quiz that truly proved to my friends that I was a true airline geek. From just a picture, or a part of a picture, I could identify the aircraft, and usually the airline.

Of course, for wide body Airbuses, all bets were off!
Just because I stopped arguing, doesn't mean I think you are right. It just means I gave up!

Thanks for the feedback. I remember using the quizzes many years ago. They were one of my favorite features 11 years ago before I decided to get a membership with posting abilities.

I don't know for sure if it will return, but your feedback is noted and will be forwarded to Demand Media. If enough people push for its return, it may come back!

I implore the administrators to bring back the quiz! It was the best way to explore the immense database of images on the site. I was always finding something new and engaging in every quiz.

To my fellow users, I beg you to reply to this post in support for the quiz. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors, and (most importantly) tell all the fellow users you know to help us bring back this great part of the website that has been lost!

Hi guys,

I liked the quiz a lot too, as it was ncie to be able to test my knowledge during the boring hours at work. I agree it would be ncie for it to return, but right now it's low priority as you can imagine. I'll let you know when there are plans for the quiz to return.

I have used the quiz for many years to learn all these tiny differences between various aircraft versions and then impress friends with my knowledge. Please, bring it back! It was a great learning tool for aircraft recognition.

Wow, I never ran into the quiz feature on the old site, but it seems it will be a long time (if ever) till we get back a lot of the small things that made a.net unique.

On the other hand, I think the new http://airliners.net page looks pretty nice.

PLEASE BRING THE QUIZ BACK!!!! I work for an aviation brokerage and am responsible for training incoming brokers. The A.Net Quiz was one of my primary training tools and I miss it! Would love to have it back if at all possible.

I've been content just to browse the pictures here until now, but I'd like to use my first post to also request this feature return. It was so much fun!

We used to use this a lot at MKC for training purposes, mostly the business aircraft quiz. It was fun to have bets with friends on how many you could get right out of 100.

Anyone else find it odd that there are an awful lot of posters with just one post, posting in this thread?
The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word.
There is no 787-800, nor 787-900 or 747-800. It's 787-8, 787-9, and 747-8.
A321neoLR is also unnecessary. It's simply A321LR.
Airplanes don't have isles, they have aisles.

Based on all the feedback that no-one really knew about it, I'll bet it would have been more popular if it were more accessible. I think the only way I found it was by typing "aircraft quiz" into google. It was an invaluable tool for learning aircraft identification.

Please bring it back!!!!

Likewise, please bring it back! It was one of the best features of the site.

And whilst I am here.... I have to say I use A-net far less frequently than I used to in the past. All those changes last year make it far less useable IMO.

Sad...

I never knew about this, but it sounds like something I'd be up for using. So I'll add my voice to the chorus.

(Please) Bring back the quiz!
