Congo is missing
Mar 6, 2012

It's because there's the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo. Neither of them technically start with a 'C'

If so, technically China is called People's Republic of China. I think Congo should be added to this game!!

I agree with Marco Polo. If you use formal names the only country that should be on the list is Canada.

and also using the french for ivory coast...why is that the case for ivory coast and not using the local language for any of the other countries?

I agree with the otehrs. Congo should be included (Republic of) Ivory Coast starts with an I.

It's a pretty gray area. I think it's acceptable to exclude Congo and not others because China (for example) could only refer to the PRC, whereas "Congo" is ambiguous and could refer to either of the two Congos. As for Ivory Coast, the rationale behind using the French spelling, I expect, is because the country, unlike most others, actively discourages the use of the English spelling and considers it incorrect.

Actually, Taiwan's official name is the Republic of China.

There is already a quiz for countries that start with "C" quiz. Quizmaster you should really check before you make these and theres 18 countries that start with "C". I'm really disappointed of the carelessness.

This quiz has existed for several months and I just moved it to the front page. And, no there are not 18 countries that start with C, there are 16. See ShaneTaylor's comment. I'm disappointed by YOUR carelessness! :)

Funny how yours hasn't appeared in the search bar when you search it but the other ones has. Wouldn't that mean it hasn't been added yet because its recent?

I hope you know I'm just kidding. I'm not really offended.

Quizmaster quizzes that are pending the front page are hidden, so this quiz has probably been hidden for a couple weeks. It was originally under the geoPunk account.

Nah I mean I just got kinda mad cause I posted a countries that started with "C" too and as of right now it has 210 takes. So yeah I just kinda overreacted. Sry quizmaster.

What about Marco Polo's Comment? Should China be under P's?
May 17, 2012

Oh, and since I got your attention, @Quizmaster, are you one person who replies to these comments, or multiple people. Just curious.
May 17, 2012

Yes, the Quizmaster is just one person. One very, very busy person!

JetPunk uses the conventional, English names of countries. Most countries have long names that no one uses. For example, Taiwan is "Republic of China" and Mexico is "United Mexican States". If we used the long names, this quiz would be really stupid. So no, China shouldn't be under P.

Thanks! Then could you do a quiz on longest country (official) names?

But if you use conventional names and not long names, why not Congo ?

"C" is an infuriating letter. It can sound like "k", "s" or "ch", so unlike the other country by letter quizzes, there is not one specific sound associated with the letter. I always mess up this one. Gah.

I don't agree with a lot of what people are saying here, but the way you've done this quiz, I think Cote D'Ivoire shouldn't be on it as the way people who speak English say it, it is almost always Ivory Coast

sure are a lot of people complaining around here. Great Quiz Quizmaster

Why other nations are in English but Ivory coast is in French? And I agree that Congo should be here too.
