Dear Round 3, Day 6 players:

Sorry for the delay in scoring. I'll try to get them scored as soon as I can, which may be a bit, but I'll do my best. (P.S.: If anyone has the answers/knows the answers/feels pretty confident in the answers and can post them below, that would be most helpful.) [ETA: A PM to me would also be fine. Actually that might be better.]

(Also, DoT, wherever you are, get well soon. We're all rooting for you!)

OK, so I have officially taken WAY too long to get this scoring started. I will work on these tomorrow night and get them done then (I'll just fish out the answers somehow, since I don't have any official ones...if anyone does know them, feel free to send me a PM). Again, many apologies for the delay (I promise I'm not being lazy!), and I'll try to do much better the next day it's my turn for scoring.

Note: A few of you answered just "the crab" on the 6-pointer, and after consulting the wording of the question, I accepted that. However, the wording of the 3-pointer didn't really leave room for just "the ram" to be a valid response (it asked specifically for the zodiac sign), so I negged those of you who only gave that on that question. I'm just your (s)lowly scorer, so if you'd like to appeal DoT about the matter, feel free.

Thanks for posting the answers, DoT! I hope you're doing better. :) However, something I noticed...
Spoiler
Hmmm. The answer I found for the mythology 6-pointer is very different from the one you gave. This may be a problem...

(I just looked at the Wiki article for your answer and I didn't see anything that fit the TOM, but of course, it is Wiki, so who knows how reliable that info is.)

I have to agree that the "official answers" are in error, though I'd have 75 points if that second set 6-pointer WAS correct.
Spoiler
correct answer, I believe, is Cancer (crab), not Scorpio (scorpion)
"And has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"

Oops.

Cancer/Crab is correct, not scorpio.
