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.
+3
Level 75
Jun 10, 2019
On 23 March 2019, Kazakhstan's capital was renamed to Nur-Sultan following a unanimous vote by its parliament. This has wrecked all the Capitals Starting with A quizzes as well.
+3
Level 85
Jun 10, 2019
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.
+5
Level ∞
Jun 10, 2019
Guys I am aware of Nur-Sultan. @Jerry928 I even sent you a personal e-mail with my reasoning. We'll make the change eventually, but we're not in a rush to bend over backwards because of some third world despot.
+9
Level 84
Jul 27, 2020
Kazakhstan is technically 2nd world.
+4
Level 85
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.

Does anyone know why the Quizmaster considers The Vatican/Holy See, Taiwan, and Kosovo countries though they are not fully recognized by the UN, but doesn't consider Somaliland, Palestine, Abakizia, South Ossetia, North Cyprus, Western Sahara, and many more as countries? They have the same level of representation at the UN as Kosovo. If he considers those countries he needs to consider many more as countries. Also, Palestine has more representation in the UN than Kosovo.

Level 67
Jan 9, 2020
I know it, just couldnt spell it, turned out I missed the first u. Thought it was Ngerlmud. Instead of thinking to add a u, I thought I mist have messed up the order of "gerl" so Ngrelmud, Nreglmud, and quite a few others..

I decided from now on I will remember it by thinking of "dumb lure" which is nearly what the first part is backwards, if if wasnt for the "silent b" in dumb.

Not a fan of Kazkhstan's new name for their capital. Imagine they changed London to Borisville or TheresaTown...

Level 67
Jan 9, 2020
Imagine they would call a city washington.. Or nassau, sucre, georgetown, and many others (like perhaps gaborone, yamoussoukro, malabo, mbabane, port louis,). It is a common practice to name (capital) cities after leaders. Quite often aswell without using a specific name, like kingstown and port-au-prince.

I'm not sure if I've asked this in the comments of a quiz or not.

But... could you or someone possibly do a quiz that has...1. an empty map at the start and 2. you need both country and capital together to make the country show...???

I love jetpunk!

I finally got 100%! And with five minutes to spare. I've been at it for like a month, whenever I've had 15 minutes to spare, usually between 1-3 times per day. Never thought I'd know all the capitals of the world, although I know nothing about most of them aside from their name. I'm pretty sure I know some of these just based on the order of this list. I need to retest my knowledge on an empty map now.

Level 33
Nov 12, 2019
Yes! 100% with 1:36 left. I worked on this for roughly about 3 days and for 1 hour a day. Africa was the hardest in my opinion, I took so much time on it. I feel relieved.

Went from 127 to 146. I am getting there :) Not actively learning them, but subconscious absorption through other quizzes. Which helps remembering them in the long run instead of actively learning them, then they are fast in, but just as fast out again (with a few sticking).||

Though the downside with that is... the ones that never get mentioned in any quizzes haha. I think most of the ones I didnt get fall in that category, I think there are atleast 10 more that I missed that I should ve gotten or atleast look familiar enough. I think about 30 you hardly see on any quiz.

Great quiz, finished with plenty of time. I think you should add another version of this with less time for experts and this for starters. Also, Colombo should be added as the capital of Sri Lanka, since that is the more commonly used capital. Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte is impossible to spell!!

2 pet peeves with this quiz having spent a while to master it. I think there should be some sort of option to take the quiz 1) without any predictive text/filling in the answer when you get close, since I would like to get in the habit of typing the full names correctly and 2) removing the duplicate answer when you type Kingston and it fills in Kingstown for St Vincent. Because of this I rarely remember the latter because it is always filled in for me. Also would like to type the "city" for capitals that use it i.e. making answer Guatemala City instead of it counting just Guatemala but that is a minor issue I guess

As far as I know, Majuro is the island on which the capital, Delap-Uliga-Djarrit, is located. I don't know whether there is a particular reason why you chose Majuro instead, but I believe you should at least accept Delap-Uliga-Djarrit (commonly referred to as DUD) as a type-ins.

i feel like accepting shortened versions, while it can be helpful, shouldn't be done. I understand it's making spelling easier, and I agree that acronyms like DRC or CAR are good, but if it's just a shortened part of the word you could keep typing without noticing. This happened to me as I was typing Ouagadougou and it just accepted 'Ouaga.' Kinda ruins the flow.

Level 68
Jun 29, 2021
Typical frustrations for me (typing capitals):

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.

Howcome Colombo isn't accepted along with Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte when Bloemfontein, Cape Town & Pretoria all are? It's the same situation in Sri Lanka as it is in South Africa:

Sri Lanka is not even mentioned in your link.

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.

This has been in the works for several years. And although Nusantara hasn't been built yet, and will be built in phases, it seems to be implied that once the legislature made this ruling this week, it became the de jure capital of the country, even though nothing official happens there yet.

I got all 196 today.

What is a pain in the ass when you are typing without looking is when you type the correct spelling for:

Vientiane

Tallinn

...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)

It took me many tries to get all the capital cities down and I still spend 10 mins a day practicing. There are so many difficult spellings to remember and I've had to get creative with some. For example Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte = Sir Jay, a warden at Epura Kotte prison. Silly, but it worked for me. Now that I know all the cities, I practice them in various orders, including alphabetical A-Z and Z-A. I found if I just did the quiz top to bottom, I was memorizing what words were next on the list rather than learning which countries the cities belonged to. I did the same with the 196 countries of the world and the 118 elements of the periodic table. Fun and good for the brain!
