Jan 10, 2018
168. Also didn't cheat. I got Kingstown by luck because it was a type-in for Kingston. And yes, YOLO, except not according to a video that said a boy once said "in my past life I was murdered by an ax". The boy brought his family to a village and said "this is where it happened". It turned out there had recently been a murder there with an ax, and the village officials had not found the culprit. The boy gave a description of the man, and he was found. The man confessed to committing the murder. So maybe you don't always live once.

Yaren isn't the capital of Nauru, only the location of parliament and largest settlement.

Yaren actually is the capital of Nauru, I have a world map and looked a Nauru and Yaren is starred and I also just searched it up. Yaren is the capital of Nauru.

Distinct lack of Ramallah. Of all your 'Worlds' quizzes and all the disputed territories you include as sovereign nations, it really sticks out that you choose not to put in Palestine. *Other* quiz sites do...just saying.....
+3
level 51
Aug 24, 2017
That's because Quizmaster is of the belief that Palestine isn't a country. And I heartily agree. It would be fine if they had just taken one of Israel's five attempted two-nation systems, but no.
+1
level 15
Jan 28, 2018
This creator is probably from the United States and the United States does not recognize Jerusalem as Palestine's capital. The US recognizes Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Palestine claims East Jerusalem as the capital while Israel does not recognize Palestine therefore recognizing all of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
+1
level 32
Oct 29, 2019
Yet they count Kosovo who is far less of a country than palestine and Vatican City who has the same observer status as Palestine
+2
level 57
Jul 2, 2017
There are not 196 "nations". What this quiz deals with is sovereign states. The "United Nations" is also a misnomer. The Kurds are a nation, so are the Inuit, Tatars, Tibetans, as well as German, Irish, Greek and Japanese. Conversely Vatican City citizens do not constitute a nation. Somewhat grey area, but contemporary usage is way off.
+3
level 66
Jul 8, 2017
There are 193 UN members and 206 effectively sovereign states plus one sovereign entity. This quiz takes the UN members and adds the Vatican (a UN observer), Taiwan (an ex-UN member) and Kosovo (recognised by over half the UN membership). The remaining 10 are more controversial, either lacking recognition (Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic, Nagorno-Karabakh, Transnistria, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, South Ossetia, Somaliland and Ashkelia) or not being fully sovereign despite having some UN recognition (Cook Islands, Palestinian Territories, Niue). The entity is the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of St. John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta - which is a UN observer!!!
+2
level 15
Jan 28, 2018
The creator is probably from the US and all of the countries in the map are countries that are recognized by the US. Kurdistan is not recognized in the US along with Tibet and a lot of other ones.

If you were making this comment in the 1800s when the concept of nationalism was a new thing you would be correct. Today, however, nation-states have become so common that the terms "nation," "state," and "country" are all used as synonyms.

Can I respectfully request that the time be extended by a minute or two. This should be a test of knowledge not typing speed. As a two finger typist I just can't complete them all in time. For the periodic table of elements (118 elements) you get 12 minutes, which I can do with a minute to spare. Here there are 196 answers required in 12 minutes also (3.6 seconds per answer). I think 5 seconds per answer would be more reasonable.
+1

Nov 14, 2017
I'm also a two-fingered typer and I got it with 1:28 remaining. Practice makes perfect.
+2
level 31
Aug 25, 2017
Keep practicing. You get quicker bit by bit. I used to run out of time but I've just done it with 2 mins to spare. I'm also now a much better typist! Try bunching things together. For example, there are 6 "Ports" so just rattle these off. And just typing "Ouagad" and "Kotte" and "Bandar" etc works.

I really cannnot believe why you put Cyprus in Asia.. we are in the EU since 2004 AND in the eurozone since 2008
+2
level 51
Sep 20, 2017
Switzerland is not in the EU or the Eurozone. They are still in Europe. The correct way to define this kind of thing is by geographical location, and Cyprus lies closer to Asia than to Europe.
+1
level 77
Sep 22, 2017
If Cyprus is in Europe then Cyprus would lie very close to Europe. What about the Greek island of Rhodes?
+1
level 67
Oct 24, 2019
Rhodes is geographically in Asia too.

Oct 3, 2017
Finally did it fairly fast. Broke my record and did in 7:28 Seconds, with 4:32 left. I can see if you typed perfectly and remembered all the locations where you could break 7 minutes. I lost seconds on misspellings and had to see which city I missed which took a good 8 seconds to find I forgot to fill in Ankara Turkey. This is a great quiz for extending those brain cells and hand eye coordination! Not bad for a 62 year old.

level 16
Oct 10, 2017
I looked up the capital of Sri Lanka and it said that it was Colombo as well as Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte so maybe accept Colombo as well

No, it's just Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte.
+1

Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte is in the suburb of Colombo. That would be like accepting District of Colombia for Washington DC.

level 61
Jun 7, 2019
Doing great when you are young (unless like under the age of 8) is no feat. A lot of things you have freshly learned when you are a teenager, while for others it might be 30 years since they were taught certain things. Plus when you are young you retain things much faster. Plus your mind is still relatively empty. And still works smoothly haha. (though indeed on the flipside; is probably occupied with other things... and might fill their heads with more useless stuff like poplyrics..)

I am surprised more people have Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte than capitals of just some smaller countries.
+1

Its probably because they can just look at the comments where there are so many comments about the spelling of Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte.

Can whoever created this quiz also accept Tel Aviv as the capital of Israel? I know its capital is disputed, but since Tel Aviv is recognized as its capital by most countries, it should at least be one of the options.

I did this without looking at the list of countries, just visualizing the map from "Countries of the world" and go around my usual route. When i got to the end, I saw that I had skipped one country, Mexico, which is number three on my normal route.

CHISINAU no longer works - what has happened? When the answers come up, it is 'Chișinău', so it is now necessary to type in the special 's' and 'a' characters (I don't have those on my keyboard)? Out of curiosity, I tried the Europe Capitals Quiz and the same problem happened but, I left this quiz open on a separate tab and, when Chisinau wouldn't work, I copied and pasted the answer from this quiz onto the Europe quiz and it worked... For those who may be worried, I wasn't cheating as I've completed both quizzes multiple times and only doing some investigative work...

Oceania, the Caribbean, parts of Sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia, and even the Balkans for a time gave me trouble. But not anymore. I tried to guess them all in order, which proved not possible for Oceania and Africa; however, I still got most of them in order, and guessed Zimbabwe's capital last as I intended. I almost forgot Mali's capital but remembered it after about twenty seconds of thought. This is a great quiz!

promastermage is correct, this happened following the resignation of their longtime (29 years) president yesterday (whom I had never heard of until I saw this on Wikipedia's current events portal), which prompted Kazakhstan's government to rename their capital in his honor. That's quite a few name changes in the past few months, isn't it? First Swaziland and Macedonia change their names a little, then Burundi relocates its capital, then this happens.

Since it has already spread that Kazakhstan is renaming their capital to Nursultan this comment is rather pointless. However, I'd like to suggest something for the interesting facts category. The former name the city had since 1998, Astana, literally means "capital city" in Kazakh.

You've changed Macedonia to North Macedonia. You've changed the capital of Burundi to Gitega. You've even (incorrectly) changed Swaziland to Eswatini (it's actually eSwatini). But for some reason you haven't changed the name of the capital of Kazakhstan from Astana to Nur-Sultan. While I am a bit offended by the change (as I might also be if our capital became Trumpington, D.C.), I think that in this case we have to concede the facts on the ground.

I stumbled across Nur-Sultan in today's newspaper, and immediately the question crossed my mind: Has the capital been renamed in all the relevant Jetpunk quizzes? So I looked, and sure enough, no! I think this is one of Jetpunk's "keynote" quizzes and should be corrected soon. I'm even fairly sure he/she is also right about the eSwatini thing, although Wikipedia hasn't changed it to that at this point. It doesn't affect the typed-in answer on the Countries quiz since input case is irrelevant, but still.

level 80
Jun 12, 2019
Third-world despots are responsible for many changes in country names and their capitals. Almost every capital change -- Gitega, Dodoma, Naypyidaw, Astana/Nur-Sultan itself -- is nothing more than a power move by a despot trying to create a personal base away from the former power center. Unless you have reason to believe the change is brief -- Paraguay's Ciudad Pte. Stroessner and Russia's Stalingrad and Leningrad reverted to their original names years later -- there's no way to ignore it (unless you also stop accepting the country names Myanmar and Burkina Faso on the same grounds). Compromise: Accept both names, but display the currently correct name.
