Why is μηχανάκι in the hovertext but not allowed as a valid answer?

Ok, yes, "μηχανάκι" should have been accepted and I've just added it to the list of correct translations. However, you should be aware that the hints are like a dictionary. They may give a variety of definitons but not all of them are correct in each sentence. Play it safe and always choose the first one unless you are sure.

Thanks. It's probably a bit ofa crutch but if there are multiple translations I tend to use the one with the least alternate meanings, so between μηχανή (engine/motor/motorbike) and μηχανάκι I tend to use μηχανή=engine and μηχανάκι=motorbike.

Sounds like a good plan I'll try it on other languages.
