When I search for "World Capitals - Hard Version" I got no result.
ouaga => Ouagadougou
tallin => Talinn
vientian => Vientiane
bandar => Bandar Seri Begawan
sri jayawardenepura => Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte
sana => Sana'a
kingston => Kingstown
Some of these are annoying because the answer is accepted but there's still more to type, which leaves the correct letters in the next answer. A couple of the shortenings I don't like because I'm drilling myself to keep my knowledge current and I actually want to know the full name of the capitals of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Sri Lanka and Brunei.
But not everyone uses the quiz this way, and lots of people are frustrated with knowing roughly "Ouagadougou" but not how to spell it.
What I'd love is a feature where I can choose (for a given quiz, a given take, or maybe for my user) whether to accept loose spellings and (especially) shortenings or whether to keep it strict. The accepting of close misspellings doesn't bother me, but the truncation does.
Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte is its legislative capital, and Colombo is its largest city and financial centre.That's Sri Lankas constitution, even though Kotte is in Colombos urban area, those are two different cities still. Their constitution defines Kotte as the capital.
South Africa have officialy divided their 3 branches of power in three different cities that aren't even near onw another. Two totally different situations.
World Capital Names with Double Letters

Surprised myself by getting 157 on my first attempt.
What is a pain in the ass when you are typing without looking is when you type the correct spelling for:
...for example, and the final letter (for whatever reason) is not required and ruins your next answer because there's a dangling final letter at the start of your lovely new capital.
I suppose for those guys who have completed it multiple times and are going for time improvements, this fact can be borne in mind (Jackinthebox above, for example) but for me, it is painful.
Also I don't recall typing the name of the capital of St Vincent because the capital of Jamaica is acceptable because it's close enough. BUT NO ! It isn't.
(Sorry - I see my frustration is aired by partdavid above)
Finished with 7 minutes left on my most recent go!
Even though so many capitals have difficult spelling, for some reason the last one I was able to remember was "Maseru" hahaha
Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine.
Only forgot capital of equatorial guinea
Im so happy
The capital of poland-warsaw is called warsaw because it saw a lot of wars.
Get it like the n*zi germany and ussr stuff
(I have learnt all the 196 capitals including the other 2 of Palestine rammalah or east Jerusalem and 2027 new country of Bougainville,buka)
Love this quiz.
"sri" "jay "awar" "dene" "pura" "kotte"
Albania and Parguay in west. Palikir and Majuro in Oceania. And randomly Bishkek and Beirut for Middle East/Stan. They're all the random ones I've had issues with before.
6 in Asia, Kualu, Dhaka, Phonom, Dili, Vientiane and Thimphu. There same old ones I've had issues remembering on site.
12 in Africa isn't too bad, cause only done Africa once, and haven't even done the map version yet.
Freaking Dhaka and Thimpu as always, I just cant remember them no matter what I do. Randomly forgot Asuncion which is one use to have problems with.
Shockingly I got everything in Africa except Juba.
I skipped all the ones I dont know and checked in at end, and its the same old culprits, some reason Bhutan and Thimphu are just impossible for me to memorize.
Its why mistakes are awesome, cause when you make same mistakes over and over, you remember last time messed up and randomly remember things you messed up. I remember Thimphu in end cause remembered its the word I always forget.
Finally i did it
Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte
I would add more letters to this name to give it more of a dramatic effect, but an average of 22% of users get this answer correct, so I can't lie. How, though?
38/196 lol, gonna check back in once i've learned them
Also, I feel like the Nauru/Yaren row should just be grayed out and filled in. In keeping with this same principle of continuity, if Nauru/Yaren were changed to this, maybe Switzerland/Bern should be too?
Thank you for the quizz. This is a great way to learn and remember stuff. Cheers!
