Shouldn't it be Star of David?
May 20th, 2011 at 23:15 GMT
Hardest for me were Eurozone, Pakistan and Congolese Franc. Others were relatively easy, with the exception of the Shield of David throwing me off.
May 21st, 2011 at 00:57 GMT
on the internet it called the entire flag design the shield of david. the star of david is in the middle of the shield of david

For me, the Kuril islands was way easier than "togolese republic." Although the latter helped me when franc wasn't accepted by itself for the Congo's currency. I had to do this a few times to get all the way through, but other than the one about the Somali flag, I thought the questions were good.

Please accept challenger deep for mariana trench - it's actually the deepest spot in the ocean.

please accept kuril
May 21st, 2011 at 16:50 GMT
what's pakistan's problem
May 21st, 2011 at 17:07 GMT
accept kuril european monetary union
May 21st, 2011 at 18:27 GMT
ok european monetary union, kuril, and challenger deep are now all accepted answers and I think pakistan is just being weird.

Alaska is continental. It's in North America. Yeah, yeah, nitpicking.
May 21st, 2011 at 20:01 GMT
@phildm: Even so, the part of Alaska on the continent of North America doesn't extend beyond the 180th meridian. Only the Aleutian Islands do.
May 21st, 2011 at 21:49 GMT
@ ianburt: Pakistan has close relations with Azerbaijan, thus not approving of Armenia's claim on Nagorno-Karabakh. On the other hand Armenia supports India's claim on Kashmir. There is an article about the Armenia-Pakistan relations on Wikipedia. @ Davidos: Please lose the "that" in the question about Moldova. Besides I find the wording of the questions about Sardinia and Tasmania a bit unfortunate. I wouldn't call either of these islands "small". Sardinia is Italy's second largest island (when I read the question I thought about islands like Elba or Capri) and Tasmania is Australia's biggest island - approximately the size of West Virginia.

Somehow things are messed up with this. I've taken it several times trying to get to the end (I didn't know a few answers in the second column, but I'm learning). This most recent time it wouldn't take the correct answer for the landlocked country that touches Ukraine and Romania, so I finally gave up after typing Moldova 8 times. The revealed answer says "Liberia". I know Liberia is an answer to a different question here, but I'm pretty darn sure it isn't in Europe. I noticed before that the stats were kind of screwed up for an answer in order quiz. Anyone know what's going on?
May 22nd, 2011 at 11:55 GMT
I don't know. I moved a few answers to make it in the right order of difficulty but I don't know how they could be messed up for you
May 22nd, 2011 at 11:57 GMT
can't find any problems. it let me put moldova. you might have been playing it just as i moved something and gotten a glitch. idk
May 22nd, 2011 at 12:17 GMT
please accept "I don't know, I'll ask her" for the first answer.
May 22nd, 2011 at 21:39 GMT
It looks like it's working fine now. The last few are most definitely the most difficult. Good job.
May 23rd, 2011 at 01:59 GMT
Requiring "Congolese franc" instead of accepting just "franc" is more nitpicky than difficult. Anyone who knows the name of the DRC currency will not be thinking of the any other country's franc.
May 23rd, 2011 at 02:09 GMT
The Aleutian Islands may not be attached to the north american continent, but they are still considered to be a part of it. The better term for that question would be the Contiguous United States.
May 24th, 2011 at 21:21 GMT
Don't you need to specify surface area or volume for the largest Great Lake question? Superior is the largest by volume but the largest by surface area is Michigan-Huron? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Michigan-Huron
May 25th, 2011 at 23:29 GMT
too many flag/emblem questions for a geography quiz.
May 27th, 2011 at 18:04 GMT
tahitiwahini: Your problem is using wikipedia as a source. Michigan-Huron isn't one lake. It's two lakes.
Jul 21st, 2011 at 00:50 GMT
it now accepts franc for the drc question.
Jan 8th, 2012 at 18:58 GMT
you should accept "marianas" as well as "mariana."
Feb 26th, 2012 at 12:57 GMT
ClintT13: I'd second that. If Michigan-Huron is one lake, then Pacific-Indian-Southern-Atlantic-Arctic is one ocean. Just because they're joined at the same elevation, that doesn't mean they're geographically indistinct.
Feb 29th, 2012 at 00:29 GMT
I thought the Eurozone, Franc and Pakistan questions were harder than the Kuril Islands questions, but that's just me.
Feb 29th, 2012 at 11:30 GMT
Its really tough to judge to each question individually. Each person has their own opinions and personal knowledge which will make some questions easier than others while some people will have no clue what those are. It was tough to order these questions when I first made it, and now I think I'm just going to keep them in the order they are in.
