Quiz Problems

So i made a quiz (What mythical pokémon are you) and the quiz works as you think it would, but then it doesn't show the results when you submit the stuff.

So here's the code. I got all of it from butterfree's free quiz script.

(function() {
    This should be the full address to your quiz, in order for the result
    codes to link to it.

    var QUIZ_URL = "http://IndigoCorner.Neocities.org/quizzes.html";

    This should be the full address to whatever folder on your website
    directly contains your result images, ending in a forward slash.

    var RESULTS_FOLDER_URL = "http://IndigoCorner.Neocities.org/mythresults/";

    Below, enter the possible final results for your quiz.

    The format should be relatively self-explanatory, but here's a rundown

    Where it says "value1", "value2", etc., enter the name you will put into
    the VALUE attribute of that result's answers. For example, if Alakazam is
    one of the possible results in your quiz, you could enter "alakazam". This
    value will not be displayed to your visitor, so it does not need to be
    capitalized or punctuated. It should not contain quotation marks,
    ampersands or backslashes (", & or \).

    Where it says "Result 1", "Result 2", etc., enter the full name of the
    result, such as "Alakazam". Where it says "result_1.jpg", "result_2.jpg",
    etc., enter the filename of the image the user should be presented with if
    they get that result. Where it says "Text for the first result", "Text for
    the second result", etc., enter the text the user should be presented with
    if they get that result. (If you do not want them to get any text with
    their result, you can erase those lines altogether.) Remember to enclose
    these values in quotes.

    It is also possible to leave out the name, image and text and instead add
    a link property, like so:

    RESULTS["alakazam"] = {
        link: "/quiz/alakazam.html"

    If you do this, then the user will be redirected to the link for their
    result when they finish the quiz. The link, like a regular HTML link, can
    be a full URL or an absolute or relative path on your server.

    You can have as many possible results as you like - four is just the

    If you want to include "intermediate" results - special results for
    ties between two or more regular results - those should be entered with
    an ampersand between the tied values:

    RESULTS["value1&value2"] = {
        name: "Result 1/2 tie",
        image: "result_1_2.jpg",
        text: "Text for a tie between the first and second result"

    This is completely optional; if you don't include an intermediate result,
    then the result listed first here will simply take precedence. The order
    of the values in a tiebreaker result should also match the order given
    here (that is, "value1&value2" works when value1 comes before value2,
    while "value2&value1" would not).

onion witch
most of your result fields aren't being closed. for example, you have a series of blocks of code like this:
RESULTS["Zarude"] = {
        name: "Result 4",
        image: "placeholder.png",
        text: "Oh no... you haven't even been released yet... and you got Zarude!"
see that curly bracket { on the first line? it needs to be matched with a closing bracket, like so (see the last line):
RESULTS["Zarude"] = {
        name: "Result 4",
        image: "placeholder.png",
        text: "Oh no... you haven't even been released yet... and you got Zarude!"
and so on for all of your results. some of them like mew/celebi/jirachi are fine already, but most of them need to be fixed.

Ahh thanks. I'll see if it works.
EDIT: It works. Thanks so much!
EDIT: if you look at my signature there is a one in three chance it will show my quiz result.
