Couldn't spell hagiography...would have been perfect if the keyboard could just type what I'm thinking.

Gah, almost missed topography. Thought it should have been hypsography, and hit a wall when that didn't work.

Could you accept Agiography for Hagiography? Since Agiography is the most proper one.

Agiography yields nothing in a Google search, while hagiography actually comes up as a word. How is it "the most proper one"?

Steganography should also be acceptable for "Encoding information". I kept trying different spellings and was very frustrated because I couldn't think of anything else! Cryptography never occurred to me for some reason.

OMG!!! I found everything and I got stuck at typography....

I am a freaking graphic designer! lol

I blame the description, though, since the term "typography" does not just involve designing fonts! :p

wow i got 5 points and I missed two! Usually you only get two or three points then.. Stupidly couldnt think of topography and hadnt heard of hagiography. Stunning how low ( and quite a bit lower than most other answers) typo- steno- and demography are.

Why is it the rudest people on here usually (not always!) are the ones who don't bother contributing quizzes themselves? Funny that!

Maybe it's just that most people don't contribute quizzes. Or that QM isn't rude and he makes half the quizzes. But I do think I've seen one person who's made quizzes and can be a bit rude in comments, though.
