Could anyone tell me why "dormiunt viri laeti" was marked wrong? I'm a little confused as to when the word order is and isn't flexible...

I think it's fine, just maybe not a common word order. Report it, the contributors will probably add it.

From what I understand, the contributors have to add each accepted answer. They have likely only added the most common and/or 'standard' word orders.
