Albuquerque is not the largest non capital us city by population... for the rest, nice quiz!
Mar 5th, 2010 at 13:15 GMT
@TiZo It is the largest that contains a Q,X,or Z. Phoenix would be, but that is a capital. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Largest_US_cities

Why do you accept Luxembourg City by just typing Luxembourg but not Mexico City by just typing Mexico?

@mrpotwtf69 I am following the standards of Sporcle, in particular the World Capitals quiz: http://www.sporcle.com/games/worldcapitals.php

Enjoyed the quiz! I didn't get most of the miscellanous ones though, need to learn my deserts and oceans.

It's not called Luxembourg City. It's just Luxembourg.
Apr 14th, 2010 at 18:48 GMT
^ As this person said, the city is called Luxembourg.

First off, notice that I accept both answers. I know lots of people on this site love to nitpick about ridiculous issues and then proceed to give my quiz (and others) 1 orange globe for such an issue, but please try to understand that it can be referred to as either Luxembourg or Luxembourg City: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luxembourg_(city). And by the way, the official Luxembourg tourism website calls it Luxembourg City: http://www.lcto.lu/en/index.

Nice idea for a quiz. Bosniaandherzegovina doesn't work for me.
