You should accept things like wight and man and anglesey. Also, I was certain there were more things in the commonwealth, but I might be mistaken.

Loads of Commonwealth realms missing.
Feb 20th, 2013 at 12:27 GMT
@Cortez No, lots of Commonwealth countries missing, but it asks for Commonwealth REALM countries, which are the 15 listed. Those are the ones that have QEII as their Queen. @quizmaker Turks and Caicos, not Turk and Caicos

I thought it was good, but could you accept all the islands without the word "islands" after it (e.g. Shetlands as well as Shetland Islands)?

Why do you not include the Isle of Man under the islands of the British Isles? Ditto Sark and Alderney? Have they secretly rejoined the mainland? Also, shouldn't the heading be Countries of British Isles rather than British Isles? Alternatively, you could, for example (and to avoid arguments about what constitutes a "country"), call it FIFA members.

I stand corrected, thanks.

Ascension is only one island. Not plural.

I was puzzled that Isle of Man and the Scilly Isles aren't part of the British Isles. I can understand leaving out little ones like Lundy and Lindisfarne, but surely islands with towns on them should count?

Please also accept BIOT for British Indian Ocean Territory. this is a commonly used acronym (it even appeared on their stamps).
Feb 20th, 2013 at 21:52 GMT
Please accept Anglesey as well as Outer/Inner Hebrides
Feb 20th, 2013 at 23:49 GMT
please accept acronyms and names of islands without islands isle of. Also, if you write Ascencion islands, it includes St Helena and Tristan da Cunha... Otherwise please write Ascencion Island, with no 's'

It might make sense to have a specific cutoff for the islands, say the 10 most populous, otherwise there will be endless arguments as to which should be included. If you keep the islands as they are, you should accept some alternative names (Western Isles) and individual islands (Arran, Bute, Skye, Lewis, Shetland, Orkney, etc.) for the island groups, as it isn't obvious what names you are looking for exactly.

A good idea for a quiz, as it reinforces a point which certainly needs reinforcing for a large number of Sporclers, but the "Islands of British Isles" category needs some serious fixing. Anglesey and Wight should be accepted without the "Isle of" (I've never heard anyone refer to "Isle of Anglesey", it's always just Anglesey), Man should be included (if GB and Ireland are both considered part of the British Isles, how can an island which is situated smack in between the two not be?). The Orkneys, Shetlands and Hebrides are all groups, not names of individual islands - each island should be listed individually, presumably with some qualification in terms of minimum area or population to avoid having to include the likes of Lundy and Inchcolm which, while certainly islands of the British Isles, are hardly particularly significant ones.
