Should clear something up.  Even if you think you have submitted the correct answer, you maybe should vote for another.  If you submit the correct answer you get 3 points for that round (which is the max you can score).  Voting for that answer won't get you more points.  In addition I would usually let you know you submitted the correct answer.  Additionally, the correct answer will likely be slightly different from yours and your actual answer would not show up.  Not sure if this is happening but wanted to throw that out there.

I'm torn between 1 and 2, but I think the real term for #1 is "Pink Floyd Concert"
