Is this test now no longer being administered? Meaning they will now proceed to another Anytime Test with different clues?

If so does that mean we are free to discuss these clues and the correct responses? And if so I hope someone has the information logged and ready to post, with my deep thanks in advance. It would still be lovely to check my responses to see if I scored what I think I scored.
It was a different test for everyone, pulled from a database of questions. I still think discussing them publicly is a bad idea, even once the thing is done.
Why would that be different from posting the entire tests of the regular online auditions once they were done and over with?

Finding the clues to Tuesday's test on Wednesday does not help you except showing what you won't get (which, statistically, is negligible).

Finding the clues to an anytime test on Tuesday CAN help you if you take it Wednesday because you could get the same clues. And with enough people releasing anytime clues, you could compile the whole database.

The fact that there are no videos of the Anytime Test anywhere online suggests Jeopardy doesn't allow it. My personal opinion is we should respect that unless someone from the show explicitly says it's okay. I do have my test saved, in case we get the OK.

I think it only suggests that nobody has actually done it. With everyone getting "different" tests, that would be a good reason why nobody has done it.

Doesn't matter once the test is closed.

UPDATE: Test says "unavailable" on the homepage for some reason, but it still allows you to register and take it at this time. I took it today (4/26) successfully.

I didn't say it was, my original comment was regarding a comment that stated about when it is closed.
