How is Okinawa not a Japanese island?
+19
Level 26
Jun 30, 2013
I think he was looking for the four major islands. Okinawa is miles off the south coast of Japan's main islands.
+1
Level 76
Oct 1, 2015
Agreed. Okinawa is an important Japanese island. This does not belong in a group of four quiz.
+19
Level 50
Jun 14, 2016
Okinawa is a Japanese island, it's not one of the main islands. The fact that it is "important" is irrelevant to that fact.
+8
Level 83
Jul 29, 2018
You guys know what is meant if you know anything about Japan at all.
+4
Level 60
Jun 7, 2020
Okinawa is an important island, but in comparison to Honshu, Hokkaido, Shikoku and Kyushu, it much less important. It is historically relevant, but not considered “main”. If Okinawa was included despite being much smaller, less populous and generally less relevant than the other islands, there could be cases for some of the Ryukyu Islands to be on this quiz, being less populous and smaller than Okinawa.

Level 16
Apr 28, 2013
wow maybe you could accept double base?
+16
Level 44
May 31, 2015
Really?? The bass refers to its tone and pitch, so base is way off...base.
+1
Level 86
Sep 30, 2015
I see what you did there. :)
+4
Level 48
Feb 6, 2016
Double Bass IS accepted. Our dear frenzil here wants BASE to be accepted, which is very wrong, as it is not a military base, or the opposite of an acid, something used in baseball, or anything that contains "base". (unless of course you are talking about the base of the orchestra, in which the Double Bass and low brass and woodwinds are the base sounds, upon which the other sounds are built off of)
+2
Level 76
Aug 7, 2018
Can we cut some slack, especially for non-native English speakers, please? If you have only ever *heard* the word "bass" in this context, how on earth are you supposed to spell it? It may be wrong to spell it "base" (and hopefully looking at the corrected type-in would inform this), but it is phonetically correct.
+1
Level 46
Aug 24, 2018
How about Sea Bass?
+1
Level 43
Aug 14, 2020
Not knowing the word isn't acceptable justification for misspelling it
+1
Level 46
Mar 27, 2021
No, that is absolutely wrong. That would be like accepting "pore" for "pour" or "bite" for "byte". Totally different meaning. There are a ton of homophones like that in English that have completely different meanings. Why would you want to reinforce a completely wrong spelling of a word in a language you are learning?
+1
Level 46
Mar 27, 2021
I never understand comments like this on a site where one is supposed to be learning about things in the English language. Why would someone WANT quizmasters to accept a totally incorrect spelling instead of learning the correct spelling? Bass vs. base is something every native English speaker knows (or should know anyway). It is an important distinction. Learn. Grow. lol

You should try to reword the Classical Elements. I had no idea what you meant. I didn't know if you meant Periodic Table elements, or elements in classical music.
+2
Level 45
Oct 15, 2015
I agree, I had no idea what "Classical" was. I started typing instruments. Maybe change it to "Classic" or "Natural" ...I dunno.
+2
Level 67
Dec 10, 2018
classic means something completely different.

I knew what was meant at once. (well it was the first thing I thought was meant, not 100% sure but typing fire confirmed it)

UK Countries? UK is a country.. I don't know what you call the 4 things inside of it, but those are not countries. Territories? Providences? Not sure. Sad it didn't accept Ireland for Northern Ireland though. ;(
+5
Level 67
Feb 23, 2014
They are actually called countries, even though that's kinda stupid since they're not independent countries.
+8
Level 37
Dec 14, 2017
There are many countries which are not sovereign nations in their own right.
+1
Level 36
Nov 12, 2020
northern ireland is not a country, this is incorrect
+4
Level 44
May 31, 2015
They are countries, each with its own customs, and apart from England, languages. We "other" countris within the UK strongly object to being referred to as English, by the way.
+3
Level 53
Sep 30, 2015
England does have its own language. English. It's just spoken more widely. And don't forget Cornish.
+2
Level 48
Feb 6, 2016
I almost typed "Sweden", then hit myself.
+1
Level 24
May 27, 2016
Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland are all countries. They are all together as one country but separated by administrative division.
+2
Level 33
Aug 26, 2018
This is basically correct. However, Northern Ireland is technically not a country. It's a province. Everyone from Northern Ireland, including myself, would argue that we are a country but if we have to be technical about it then we are wrong...

Wales used to be considered a principality until December 2011 when the ISO updated itself and recognised it. But it hadn't been treated as a principality for centuries.

+1
Level 65
Feb 11, 2021
Northern Ireland has essentially the same status as Scotland and Wales in the UK, so if you call them countries then you can go ahead and call NI a country.

"Province" isn't used in any official way at all, it only comes about because:

1. There is no Northern Irish ethnic group or language, unlike Scotland and Wales;

2. Northern Ireland has never been an independent country in the past, unlike Scotland and Wales.

Some people think NI falls even shorter than Scotland and Wales in terms of being a country, so they use a lesser title for it - usually province. It's not officially or technically a province though, it's up to you and your politics/biases/judgement/instinct/whatever.

+1
Level 37
Nov 3, 2017
They are countries, just not sovereign ones. Just like the Bahamas, Barbados, St.Kitts, St. Lucia, etc., are countries but still owe allegiance to the British Crown.
+4
Level 71
May 8, 2018
Bahamas, St Kitts and St Lucia are sovereign states, even though they have the Queen as their head of state (just like Canada). But you're right about England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland not being sovereign states.
+1
Level 37
May 8, 2018
they are sovereign nations! NOT countries in their own rights, though we do often call ourselves individual countries, we are not.

Also, Ireland IS NOT northern Ireland. they are a part of the EU, use the Euro and not the Pound / Sterling and are the republic of Ireland, not Northern. hope that helps clear it up!!

+1
Level 63
Jun 22, 2018
Do you know what "sovereign nation" means? Also Northern Ireland is, along with the rest of the UK, still in the EU but scheduled to leave in March 2019.
+2
Level 76
Aug 7, 2018
Ireland properly refers to the island as a whole, which does contain Northern Ireland, whose residents can choose to identify as Irish or British. Confused?
+2
Level 81
Aug 13, 2018
They are countries in the same way that U.S. states are states. In traditional parlance they are referred to this way even though technically they have lost the characteristics that would make it make sense to refer to them as such a long time ago.
+1
Level 67
Aug 24, 2018
The category should be changed to United Kingdom Nations, not Countries
+3
Level 33
Aug 26, 2018
I feel like that would make it more confusing

This needs to be changed. I put Spade, heart, club and nothing worked. Why do we have to add an S at the end of each word??
+13
Level 81
May 8, 2018
So it is your fault I have to delete an S after each suit I type. They are called spades, hearts, clubs and diamonds, the S is part of it, nobody ever calls them "spade" etc.
+2
Level 72
May 8, 2018
I concur. Even when referring to a single card, it's the "Ace of Spades" or "Seven of Diamonds."

#bringbackthes

+1
Level 64
Aug 12, 2018
Ah, but if you refer to a non specific single card you would say it without the s.
+1
Level 67
Dec 10, 2018
I so agree with those. Often people complain about the type-ins. BUt never really mattered to me. But on tis occassion I found it very annoying to keep ending with an s in my box...

It isnt a hard word to spell or something

+1

Feb 11, 2021
Why was this ridiculous type-in accepted??? The suits are:

Hearts

Please accept 'Wind' as an alternative answer to 'Air'
+1
Level 67
Dec 10, 2018
That is not really an element is it. It would be like typhoon or waterfall or rain for water. WInd is moving air (yes undoubtedly there is a much more technical way to define wind, with pressure areas and thermic/thermal whatever things)

It's not and never has been known as the disc - why accept something that's wrong as an alternative?
+1

Dec 10, 2018
that is what I tried first aswell, it is a disc that is thrown. But when that wasnt accepted I did think of trying discus (something else in between but cant remember, maybe disk)

Interesting that I never heard of the hammer throw but I got the other 3 right away. I wonder how I missed that, it’s kind of odd.

How about you say: Base Elements as opposed to classical elements.

I think 4 base elements: Air, Fire, Water, Earth

4 Classical Elements: Beat, Rhythm, Bach, Beethoven, Hydrogen, Helium, Oxygen, Gold etc..

+1
Level 36
Nov 12, 2020
excuse me what??

their are no such thing as the 4 base elements in the periodic table, and even if they were, no gas would be, the gases in the periodic table were some of the latest discovered elements, lead, gold, iron, and copper would be closer than whatever the heck that is,

also beat, rhythm, bach and beethoven???

beat and rhythm are the same thing in all practical sense, and bach and beethoven were dudes.
