In that case, shouldn't afabla be accepted as well?

Yes. I would say so. "Nice" is very broad.

Why did it require me to put a double "ne"? "Viaj promesoj estas ĝentilaj, sed ne ne estas tre efikaj"

Something is not right there. If that was a suggested answer, there is a typo in it.

My translation, "Viaj promesoj ĝentilas, sed ne tre efikas", was corrected to "Viaj promesoj ĝentilas, sed ne tre efikaj".

Alternate answers need to be entered manually. Yet another reason to say "... estas ĝentilaj" and not "... ĝentilas."

Same thing with the sentence "Via ĝentila rideto estas tre efika por flirtado."
