So many american people not known from the rest of the world and, on the other hand, only 11% have answered Deng Xiaoping... what a shame.
Level 83

It accepted "Deng" for me.

did anyone else guess "Disco Stu" for the DS clue? no? just me? ok...
Level 82
Jul 27, 2016
Oh, no...not just you. I saw DS and disco singer and immediately typed Disco Stu. Then when I saw the part about having number one hits, I actually heard in Disco Stu's voice, "Disco Stu won't work for you!"

"Lady Chatterley's Lover" - I thought the clue was looking for the name of the lover, not the author.
Level 79

I did too, at first, then brain kicked into gear.

I still think Xiaoping should be an accepted answer, regardless of Chinese name configuration. All the other answers, you do not need to type in the "D" portion of the answer. This one should be no exception.

I disagree

Since this quiz is about first names starting with D, Deng Xiaoping shouldn't even be on this list.
Level 79

Good point.

Has the description changed? It doesn't say it's about first names.
Level ∞

The quiz is "People with D Initials". Neither the title nor the description have ever said anything about first names.
Level 78

But the *first* name of Deng Xiaoping is indeed "Deng". It's his family name, unlike any of the other answers, but it still comes first.
Level 43

No Donald Trump!?!?!?!?
Level 81

So glad I did not have to correctly spell "Dweezil."
Level 63
Nov 13, 2017
Not sure why Xiaoping is not accepted
Level 77
Nov 28, 2017
Only family name is accepted alone.

Thankfully. Xiaoping was escaping me but I knew it was Deng.

I think I tried typing velesquaz or something.. because I was about to comment that perhaps velasquez could be accepted as a type in. But I tried it (restarted the quiz) to be sure and it was accepted. So I think I mixed up the vowels or something. It didnt take my answers and I gave up, cause it was a hunch anyway..

Was anyone else unaware that there was a remake of War of the Worlds? I was going back decades in my mind, desperately trying to think who it could have been...
Level 74

I think 'Doctor Ten' should be accepted for DT! Why? Just because it would be as cool as a Fez.
Level 88
Oct 8, 2020
Germany basketball star?
