Bit of a change of mind on the conundrum? No objection from Nick.

Aye, she did seem to take rather a long time to give the actual answer.

To me it looked like she thought she had the answer then while Nick was talking realised that was incorrect. Then she worked out the correct answer. I was pleased it wasn't crucial, but I guess it was fair enough because she Thought she knew the answer before buzzing.

Obviously you buzz in if you think you know the answer. Views as to how much latitude you have to change your mind and give a different answer vary from zero to minuscule.

When I watched it, I "buzzed" (in my head) a fraction before her thinking AWAKENING but in the time it took Nick to ask for it I had realised it was WEAKENING.
Wouldn't surprise me if she did the same thing.

People who don't frequent this forum aren't necessarily aware of our standards of etiquette. And there was the video Innis linked to the other day of someone admitting to it and Richard Whiteley not being bothered.

I think if she realised she had one thing and changed after she buzzed thats grand. There was no deceit intended when originally buzzing.

I dunno. I think if it's unacceptable to buzz in without an answer, then it's unacceptable to change your answer too.

I still don't think it is unacceptable to buzz without an answer. As far as I'm concerned, as long as you follow the show's rules, then who cares? It's ethically questionable, but not unacceptable.

As long as you don't buzz before the conundrum's turned, and you answer immediately when Nick tells you to, job's a good 'un. Don't give a shit about the process.

So you wouldn't change your answer in the same situation?

The alternatives being to say "oh no, I'm wrong" or give your corrected answer and then tell Nick you thought it was something else before you buzzed? (somewhat like the case with Richard Whiteley).
She had to make her decision quickly and may have regretted it after, specially if it had been crucial.

Probably not to be honest. Unless I also thought it was OK to buzz in without the answer. There's no real difference between the two, especially considering that you could buzz in straight away with some crappy "answer" in your mind every time, and then change it accordingly if you manage to spot it afterwards.

She might, of course have buzzed in because she saw WEAKENING, hesitated for a split second because she thought it might be AWAKENING, and gone with her original answer.

They're not the same though. One is buzzing genuinely believing you have the answer, with no deceit intended, realising you made a mistake and quickly changing. The other is buzzing with the intent to deceive and trying to figure it out in the time you get. I expect you're in the minority in saying you wouldn't change your answer, I definitely would and wouldn't feel any guilt at all.

But if you know you can change your answer then you might buzz in when you're slightly less confident of your answer. So while it's easy to look at the two extremes and say they're completely different, they actually lie on a continuum.

I also think it's quite strange to say that you have to have an answer when you buzz in but that you're allowed to change it. Why bother saying you have to have an answer that's optional to use?
