While both Colosseum and Coliseum are used for that building in Rome, shouldn't there still be a consensus across JetPunk quizzes? The Satellite Images - Europe quiz gives "Coliseum" as an answer. - Yes, both are acceptable type-ins in both quizzes, but consistency?

Both spellings are correct though, so if a certain spelling is not allowed then that would mean a correct answer does not work, and that wouldn't be good.

I like it better this way since people can learn that both spellings are valid.

I guess the most similar one to the Italian correct spelling should be considered more appropriate, shouldn't it?

Italian: Colosseo

Exactly the way we spell Notre Dame de Paris as it is in French

Can you accept Pompeii for 'city near Vesuvius' or indicate that you mean current not historic?

N as the first letter should be a great indicator.

Come on, I like the sound of Nompeiis.

could you accept "adria" for "adriatic" because in my language it is adrian so it would be easier

The quiz is in English. It's not practical to accommodate every other language.
Level 78
Jan 14, 2018
The next word begins with c - this is a word chain - so Adria doesn't work.

Unless I'm missing something, 'Common subject in Roman education' is a bit vague isn't it? Tried philosophy, maths, Latin, etc
Level 72

...but this is a word chain quiz and none of them start with 'r' and end with 'c' which is needed to fit the quiz. It should be fairly obvious that they aren't correct.

Ah yes, sorry - blond moment.

I don't usually fall into that trap with the word chain quizzes, honest!

Opera is a musical genre, not a style. Stylistically, Verdi and Puccini would both be generally described as Romantic (and there are plenty of non-Romantic operas).

Motorcycle manufacturer: Aprilia ... what, no? but it is...
Level 83

Aprilia doesn't start with 'D'. This is a word chain quiz.

Easy one for me. It was only when searching for last answer, after entering MotoGuzzi Laverda Aprilia then Vespa, Lambretta, that I realised that since it was a word chain I was already given the first and last letters. My brother used to have a Duke, I have actually ridden pillion on one, so Ducati should have suggested itself to me anyway.
