Nice to see Michael Shutterly's first game.

Was baffled by Odors $300 and then discovered there are no fewer than four odor classification systems/theories, with ethereal being in three of them. While I'm far from Jeopardy contestant material, I have to admit that I thought of pungent before a word that can also mean light and airy in other contexts.

J4 has an extra E in Eikenberry.
J16 the OCR added a backslash to the front of "vice president."
DJ23 response has garbage from DJ24.

I was logged in so I took care of it.

Semi-related, the weird spacing in J8 in game_id=7624 is present in the original, in case I forget to mention it when it's time to do the recap.

Should I add a note to fend off potential error submitters?

(Also note the rare example of the curly single quote.)

The curly single quote is lamentably common on today's internet (and in much text in print and on television that was produced on a computer), because the "smart punctuation" setting assumes all apostrophes at the start of words are actually open-quotes.

I mean, if you want—but people will still submit correction suggestions, even if the note is there.

Now it's personal.

Copy-pasted clue text:

William Miller ran for vice president on the ticket with him

ETA: I think that fixed it.

True, but at least it will warn future versions of ourselves not to pay any attention to them!

OADs: 10/11, 10/12 and 10/13/1994, Mr. Barrett and Mr. Saunders you need to add those games in the archive before they get taken down
Working on the first game now and two comments:
1. I'll never get used to chats at the end of the J! round.
2. The chats seemed more like Alex as Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes than game show banter.

The OCR liked that 1994 font style & spacing for reading clues.

Was Bobbie a returning champion? I went into the season 11 index to see if I could figure out what 5x champ was retired in the previous game, only to see a new champ crowned in the game before that.

Edit: In googling Bobbie's name, I found this page that seems to indicate she didn't win with Alex, but says she won three games and $1,720 with Art Fleming in 1974 (and has pictures of this!), and $10,000 and a "London Show Tour" on the evening version of J! in 1975.

Courtesy of the National Archives of Game Show History and the prompting from seaborgium in another thread, the previously missing first 10 clues and player introductions from #757 are now in.
