This picture is of Elizabeth Tower, Big Ben is the name of the bell inside.

Originally the bell, but can also be the tower

However, Elizabeth Tower is an acceptable type-in.

You have to think about it this way: if big ben is not accepted, then lots more people are going to not get and/or complain. Big Ben is commonly used to refer to the tower in Britain.

How's about displaying the correct answer [El*z*b*th Tower], but accepting Big Ben as a type-in. Then everyone's happy?

That seems the most correct and fair, and educational way to do it. Display the correct answer, but accept the commonly known answer.

pointhunters get their points, and people that like to learn and expand their knowledge might learn something new

The tower is not called St Stephen's. It is called the Elizabeth Tower. The Victorians calls it that but we are not in the 19th century dude.

It's up to 5% now, but I'm still astounded by how low that figure is. I guess it probably helps that I've been there, but I had thought that it was a well known site.

Still rididculously low (especially looking at the other stats, it is not like people did bad on this quiz overal) was really surprised. And I wonder how much of that rise all the way up to 15 was due to this comment thread

Isnt it like one of the first mayor landmarks/ building you learn about? you got the pyramids+sphinx, the colosseum and this.. (plus the confusingly similar looking and written parthenon) (and later on the eiffel tower and maybe a brief mention of some other of the 7 wonders of the world)

I missed Forbidden City. I said Forbidden Temple, that was just a total guess - I didn't think I was actually close with that. Kicking myself for missing Notre Dame. I've been there, but obviously I was at the front, so the angle threw me off.

C'mon all you "That ain't 'Big Ben'" complainers! You know that it is the preferred answer even if technically not accurate. I'm sure you regularly relish in correcting everyone who makes this world changing mistake just so you can prove how superior you are.

It's not about being superior, it's about being correct. Many of the people who visit this site I'd imagine are sticklers for being precise, and it really is a big deal. Call it incurable pedantry or a form of autism; if you don't have it, you probably wouldn't understand

Sigh. There were a lot where I knew the city but not the name of the monument. "That square in the middle of the Vatican" and "The cathedral adjacent to the Kremlin in Moscow" didn't quite cut it.

Sep 16, 2015
Why do I keep thinking it's called the CNN tower? Sorry everybody in Canada/Toronto. Thought I had the wrong tower when that wasn't accepted. Accept just "CN" ? No word really starts with that and if you get it right that far you already know it's a tower and which one it is.

Please accept Red Square for the last one, even though I got it. We associate the onion topped dome more with Red Square than St Basils Cathedral (even though they're less than 0.1 miles away from each other.)

But that dome is part of the cathedral, not the square. Also there's not one bit of square visible in the picture, but plenty of cathedral.

Part of the answer is filled in, and even though I've never been there I don't think there is a Red Square Cathedral.

I've now been to 13 of these. I'll visit the Vatican in the Spring making 14. I would like to visit mainland China sometime and I love SE Asia so I'll probably get to Cambodia sooner or later... not sure if I'll ever be in the middle of the Australian Outback, though.

Pantheon shows 0% / me 100% but at least two people have it right, if I read the comments right. Not sure how it is calculated but it does feel impressive

Yes. Well I'm perversely happy to be among that 1% whilst also among the 48% who didn't know Lincoln Memorial. 17/18 for me.

The Pantheon shows up as being guessed right 10% of the time for me. Maybe it somehow glitched and was reset to 0 at some point. And I'm also happy to not be ignorant of Washington, which is a city worth visiting and knowing about.

How about accepting Al-Aqsa (Mosque) for the Dome? It's part of the same complex
+1
level 77
Dec 13, 2016
Different thing. Though many people often confused about this. The raised platform is known as the Temple Mount. To Muslims it is the Haram Al-Sharif. But the Dome of the Rock is near the North end of it, while the Al Aqsa Mosque is all the way over on the South end. If you know the place you shouldn't get the two mixed up. If they would accept an alternate it should be Haram Al Sharif/Haram esh Sharif. Not AlAqsa... that's incorrect.

Was the Pantheon just recently added in lieu of another landmark? JetPunk is rife with geography and history nerds. I don't believe that 96% of quiz takers on this site would get that one wrong.

i think the fact that the pantheon is in Paris confuses a lot of people, the "other" one, the parthenon, is in Athens
+1
level 78
Dec 5, 2018
I know there is a building in Paris called the Pantheon, but it looks nothing like the building in the picture. It's square not round like the one pictured here. The round one in the picture which is also called the Pantheon is in Rome and is about 1800 years older than the one in Paris. I'm not sure how the Parthenon fits into the discussion about the Pantheon, but it is actually one of the buildings shown in the photo for the Acropolis in this quiz and you're right about it being in Athens.
+1
level 63
Jun 20, 2019
What on earth has paris got to do with it? We have a restaurant here called Sphinx, but I wouldnt put that as the answer, since that is not shown in the picture.

And I still really dont get it, what does something by the same name in paris have to do with the picture. You see the picture you remember the name. And then go no that cant be the answer cause something else excists by that name? It is not like the countries are given either..

I am really confused about where the confusion would be according to your argument.
