People from Tenerife don't live in Europe. No matter how mad they get, or how much they whine about it, the Canary Islands are considered to be part of Africa. And the quiz is asking for mountains within Europe, so that makes its validity onto the quiz less likely.

Then the title of the quizz shouldn't be "Top 10 European Countries with the Highest Elevation" it should be something like " Top 10 European countries with the Geographically Europe Highest Elevation" because even tho the islands are not located in the continent Europe They are still a part of Spain.

But the Canary Islands are in Spain, and the title says that this is the top 10 European COUNTRIES with the highest elevations, not the top 10 European countries only taking into account European land.

Please, how about everyone throw a fit?! You guys act like it's going to negatively affect your life if a Jetpunk quiz doesn't state the specific details you WANT to see. The caveats are there so you know what you are doing, not so you can proof check every little detail and point it out. You people who complain about quizzes like this are the reason the world is a horrible place.

1) Reduce the time 2) Add Spain. It says European countries and Tenerife belongs to one.

Tenerife is an African territory controlled by the Spanish government. For all intents and purposes the people living there are spanish citizens, which makes them European, but that's a different issue. They are living in a colony of Spain and not in Spain proper. If your logic was true then all the British colonies of Africa were European in the 19th century but they aren't now.

Colonies don't exist anymore. Tenerife is not in Europe but is part of an European country, so it makes sense that it should be in this quizz.

People living in Canary islands live in a European Union territory, being Spanish they are European, but the place they live is not located in Europe. That's all. Otherwise please add Morocco in this quizz... Errr. Nice quizz, thanks!

Culture does not matter, the Canaries are part of the African Continent. Same for Morocco, no part of it is in Europe.

If culture doesn't matter, there is no Europe. The differentiation betweem Europe and Asia is a cultural one, there is no "European Plate", or a large body of water seperating those two.

It's cultural and geographical. The geographical limits of Europe are generally considered to be the Ural/Caucasus mountains in Russia, and the Strait of Bosporus in Turkey. Cultural limits of Europe often exclude places like far western Turkey/places like North Georgia.

Don't forget political. If it is only cultural and geographical then Hawaii wouldn't be considered part of North America - which still makes no sense to me. Someone had to get creative to get it included as part of the continent. And, using that logic, then French Guiana is indeed part of Europe. But the same "someone" determined that territories shouldn't be included, only states (or departments).

Well that's not very helpful when classifying continets because you can keep drawing imaginary lines around cultural boundaries anywhere in the World. For example you can divide Asia into East Asia, South Asia and the Middle East. You can also draw a line between USA and Mexico. But of course, these lines are not based on geographical separation like the presence of ocean between the two landmasses, so they cannot be continental divisions, otherwise we'll have dozens of continents. The current European boundary also faces this problem. If I had my way, I would classify the whole of Eurasia as one continent and make the European-Asian boundary a regional boundary rather than a continental one, much like the boundary between the Middle East with the rest of Asia or between Latin America and English-Speaking North America.

Kind of misleading title... I was expecting average elevation, whereas this is more like "highest mountain."
