Well, this one took me a while, but it's done, October 17, 1994, George Fries vs. Bazil Facchina vs. Eileen Lynch.

What's the deal with Eileen's FJ response?

I always forget the link. Thanks.

The response is as she gave it. Alex commented she might have been confused by the clue.

You credited her with a correct response.

More specifically, I neglected to change her response to incorrect, since correct is the default in FJ. I'll fix it. Thanks to both of you.

I don't think my response would've been different from Eileen's.

But as for the response toggle, HOW COULD YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT??? SHEESH!

Probably not a big deal, but I noticed this in relation to togglegate. Eileen’s profile page still lists her as an “X-time champ” with an unspecified amount of winnings. Since she has been defeated and her run complete, I suppose this should be changed?

Sorry for bringing this up here, but I didn’t see a way to make a correction suggestion on a player page.

Thanks. The best way to make a correction suggestion on a player page is to go down to the bottom of the game, click the suggestion link, and make a general suggestion, noting in the comments that the player's total score (or whatever) should be corrected.

I submitted a correction in that manner several weeks ago and Mackenzie Jones's name is still entered incorrectly.

This sequence?

An anonymous user offered the following correction suggestion on 2020-02-18 21:42:49 about show #8161 [J!] [DJ!] [FJ!]:
The "K" in Mackenzie's name was not capitalized when shown on screen during her introduction (otherwise "ac" would have been lowercase). On the podium display where she wrote her name, though the "K" does stick up quite a bit compared to the surrounding letters, I don't believe that it's meant to be a capital "K". In both examples so far, the "K" isn't nearly as tall the "M", and on Monday in particular the line extending up and to the right only goes halfway as high as the vertical ascender, making it resemble a lowercase "K" more than an uppercase one. Also, the Jeopardy! Twitter account put out a tweet earlier today in which the "K" in her name is not capitalized.

Screenshots: https://imgur.com/a/MGrmbF7

The archivist who rejected the correction suggestion (MarkBarrett) on 2020-02-18 22:00:04 had the following comment:
MacKenzie prefers the upper case "K".

No joke, I filled in 4/1/02: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=1733

with Ben Studdard, Brendan Roche & Mary Llewllyn whose pics are in the archive

Mary woulda, coulda, shoulda won the game with bigger DD bets and/or solving a fairly gettable FJ! clue.

It's taken nearly two decades, but I finally have forgotten that Tim Burton version of Apes as I also could not recall the stumper in that category.

Ran the category.

Didn't get the FJ! though, as the generic-ass names prove my Hawley-Smoot rule once more.

Just to make sure. Mary didn't get credit for "one thousand million" in MONEY PROBLEMS for $400?

It was a neg for Mary. Here is how the CC has it:

Money problems for $400.
What is one thousand million?
No.
What is one billion?
I thought you said, mary,
"one thousand million."
Which is a billion.
I know it's a billion,
but you didn't say, "a billion."

It's fair, though. I'm sure you'd agree they wouldn't take, "What is 100 10-millions?", so they can't take any other similar restatement of the problem.

I decided to search the archive for similar rulings, and this popped up:

Show #5719 - Thursday, June 18, 2009
THE BRITISH ARE DIFFERENT, $200
A 1 followed by 9 zeroes is this term in the U.S.; the Brits call that number "a thousand million"

British variants not good enough for the 2002 judges, I guess.

From what I've read, they haven't used that terminology since 1974.

Here is an article from when Ben was on the show.

https://news.mercer.edu/020327judgetv/

Turns out he was a college roommate of a three day champ from S17.

I filled in what was available of 7/6/87: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6572

Eric Berman defended against (sounded clear cut from the recording's FJ! round) Mary Ellis & Vaughn West.

If another archivist wants at the recently shared Seniors game, have at it. https://archive.org/details/jeopardyjul ... online.com

I want to finish the missing S18 April games this spring.

Andy will work on the other Judy Weightman games.

I've got a little time this afternoon, so I've started it. We'll see how far I get.

If anyone would like to earn their Junior Woodchuck "Assistant Archivist" badge, the computer I'm on has very poor speakers, & I'd certainly appreciate if anyone could transcribe Alex's closing remarks during FJ!, especially where he introduces the semifinalists.
