Default Incorrect Monthly Contest Answer!!!

In the Monthly Contest:
In Edit Time, it asked when the first edit of "Hey Jude" was released. It said the 20 Greatest Hits version. Not so.
The original 45 lasted 7:13.
A promo record was made for radio that lasted 3:56.
Then, 1967-1970 was edited to 7:06. Not by much, but those are the first two edits.

Sometimes we do have questions that can technically have more than one correct answer. The moderators run the contest, so I try to stay out of it. The promo was never really released, so that really doesn't count. And the Blue Album version wasn't really an edit either, it was just timed differently probably.

In any case, it's in the past. The 20 Greatest Hits version is the right answer to me.

Oh well...I guess my excuse to get a point didn't work. Well, I wouldn't have won this month anyway.

Always nice to see the feeling of competition.

Generally, Harb and I do come across questions that have more than one correct answer. At that point, it is up to the moderator as to what is correct. I may be looking for a specific answer and someone could post another one and still be correct. At that time it is a judgement call for me. I'm sure Harb feels the same way.

Yeah, it's happened to me a couple times. Generally I stick with the answer I already have if I cannot research the 'correct' answer already given.
