Tie-breaker!

To break the following ties.

Silente and Dugglyn

Amethyst and Vivanus

Anyone else is welcome to guess for the fun of it, though no points will be awarded.

Answer as many of the following as you can. Each numbered clue has a different answer, and I've tried to make it difficult so that hopefully some of you get some questions wrong and don't end up tied again. You can post your answer in multiple comments if that's easier, just make sure it's clear which questions you're answering when.

Okay, go!

Part I: Bloglandians

1. Flakes of Crystalline Water; Battle on December 10, 1899

2. Mythical Reptile Evergreen

3. Previously Referred To Mystery

4. R-E-S-P-E-C-T Никола Тесла

5. Green song

Part II: Ships

8. The person I haven't met and Spanish Emerald with a Z

The top ten.

I've had difficulty counting, but this much is certain.

...

...

...

Your first place winner is...

...

...

...

1. Taia DeMars. Either she's two points ahead of second place, or ten, but she's definitely in first place.

...

...

...

Your second place winner is...

...

...

...

2. Adrasdos Dark. Her score was the only one I calculated consistently. It was 86, in case you were wondering. Not that you'll know what that means. It was basically between her and Taia for first place this whole time.

...

...

...

Your third place winner is...

...

...

...

3. Star Inkbright.

...

...

...

This is where things get tricky.

...

...

...

The next two places could easily be reversed, depending on how I count.

...

...

...

Your fourth and fifth place winners, in an order that's yet to be determined, are....

...

...

...

Silente Tempest and Dugglyn Carzainia.

...

...

...

I may have to make a tie-breaker challenge for those two.

...

...

...

Anyway, the next two places are the same with both counts of the score.

...

...

...

Your sixth place winner is...

...

...

...

Snow Stormberg.

...

...

...

Your seventh place winner is...

...

...

...

Chione Asashina.

...

...

...

I had to recount her votes to make sure, but there is a clear eighth place winner, too.

...

...

...

And that winner is...

...

...

...

Aretha Tesla!

...

...

...

I did say I'd give you a top ten, didn't I?

...

...

...

Well, I'm not.

...

...

...

I'm giving you a top eleven.

...

...

...

That's mostly because I want to acknowledge everyone in both top tens I calculated.

...

...

...

Currently tied for ninth place, are...

...

...

...

Amethyst Temerity and Vivanus Keen!

...

...

...

I may as well make a tie-breaker at this point.

...

...

...

Anyway, your last winner is...

...

...

...

Elleni Jazz!

Congratulations all of you! I'll be in touch with you about your prizes. Sil, Dug, Amy and Viv, stay tuned for a tie-breaker!

Guess the Bloglandian, challenge 15

EDIT:

Surprise, surprise, the answer is me! :O

Snow, Google Translate is not a reliable source! XD As someone who actually speaks a reasonable amount of French, I didn't use it. While indeed works as a translation, a more direct translation would be "it's true." This was meant to be a reference to C'etait la vérité, (it was the truth), which was recently in my profile name for quite a while.

As for the other clues, Fabienne means 'bean grower' and the 19th letter of the alphabet is S.
Lichen = Moss
Enigmatic = Cryptic

QUESTIONS:

1. How much should I bug you lot about new puzzles? On the one hand, I want you to know they're there, on the other, I don't want to be annoying.

2. Should I make there a prize for this? On the one hand, it'd be cool, on the other, people who have met more people would have an advantage, so I'm not sure it'd be fair.

3. At what point should I announce the answers? I've been posting the results for the ones everybody got right as soon as a bunch of people have answered, but if only one or two people have guessed correctly, should I wait, or just post the answer? Also, should I publish all the comments, or just the correct ones?
