It's not a speed type test, but a minute gives you 7.5 seconds per country anyway and it is fairly easy. (1:50 left on the clock)

Agreed. Even a moderate typist with 40 WPM could have done this. The time needs to be challenging enough to filter out the majority of test-takers. I'd say 7 or 8 seconds should be ideal.

Why? "to filter out the majority of test-takers'....... what sort of a person are you TinklePork ?......... People do these jetpunk quizzes for fun and to learn, not to be proficient at typing. I can't believe that people with your outlook on life are involved with jetpunk in the first place. (I've seen your trouble stirring comments on other sites as well)

Perhaps it's because the majority of people who take these geography quizzes already know most of the answers and want to take a quiz that won't finish after not even a tenth of the time is up. Ever think about that?

yea it is quite annoying that some ( a lot..) of these quizes are basicly just speed typing tests.. takes the fun out of everything.. stops you from using your brain... (though a speed one cán be fun once in a while. But it shouldnt be the aim of this site, it is to test your knowledge and learn something)

@quizlamicstate I fail to see your point. The quiz ends after you have all the answers correct, whether you have 5 seconds left or 5 minutes. It is not like you have to wait the remaining time..

It is from a vintage travel poster for Java (Indonesia).

The poster says "Visit Java: Only 36 hours from Singapore" ... I assume that's by boat. Appears to be from the Dutch colonial era.

I am using the Chrome browser and in it, if you right click on an image, one of the options is to search Google for that image. That's how I found out.

I’m not sure you chose the best example there. Indonesian for Indonesia is still Indonesia.

More seriously, though, there are some countries that insist their name stays in their own language rather than being translated. Côte d’Ivoire is one of them. (Cabo Verde and Timor-Leste are the two other big ones, if you’re curious).

There's really no good reason to use "Ivory Coast", other than randomly dissing the people from there, in the hope that there won't be many of them on this quiz anyway. If it's about English names, you're going to have to start listing Costa Rica under R and El Salvador under T.

What I like about jetpunk is that you can learn things there. There are hundreds of cities and capitals and otherwise useless pieces of trivia I've learnt here because the page usually insists on giving the right answer, not the more popular one. Why not stick to it when it comes to Côte d'Ivoire? Do you really think that this is something jetpunkers are unable to eventually learn?

There's no good reason not to use it. Do you demand that we refer to Germany as Deutschland? Ivory Coast is the English name. There, you learned something.

Level 62
Apr 14, 2021
No, as a German person, I do not. I don't care that my country is probably the one with the most different names from different roots. I don't object to my country being called Deutschland, Germany, Allemagne, Tyskland, Saksa, Niemcy, Preisen, Vācija, or whatever else.

The thing is, very clearly, the people from Côte d'Ivoire *do* object, and their Government has let it be known that they would rather be called a certain specific name.

I don't know who I am, or indeed who you are, to tell them what they should be called.

As for the argument that it's "the English name"... There are so many countries in the world that are known in English by a name that isn't in English, that the argument is just ridiculous.

+1
Level 81
Apr 14, 2021
it doesn't matter who I am. Who are they to dictate what the words for things in other languages are? That's stupid. and ridiculous. Your argument is ridiculous. It's not even that they want to change the name of their country. Cote d'Ivoire literally means Ivory Coast in French. If they were going to change it to something else that would be a little different.
+1
Level 81
Apr 14, 2021
It would be just as asinine if I went to a Spanish-language site and insisted that they type "The United States" and not "Los Estados Unidos," or "Germany" instead of "Alemania." You have no argument. Every other country in the world accepts that the name for their country varies from place to place, language to language, culture to culture. Germany isn't special in this regard. Ask anyone from Zhōngguó (China), Misr (Egypt), Hanguk (Korea), Hellas (Greece), Suomi (Finland), Cymru (Wales), or Bhārat (India).

and bear in mind that this is coming from the guy who insists that it's wrong to call Americans Americans... and has taken to calling them "US Americans" or something else asinine like that even though in every linguistic tradition around the world (including in Latin America) they have been called Americans (or Americanos, or some related variant) for hundreds of years. You are changing your language to deliberately cause offense and confusion, as opposed to passively offending others because you're using the same language you always have. In the first instance, you are being a goober. In the second instance, those claiming offense are being goobers. Hypocritical as always.

And regarding El Salvador - the English name for El Salvador has always been El Salvador. It's not like the English-language world knew this country as "The Savior" and then decades later people from that country started having a hissy fit because people in foreign countries weren't speaking Spanish. Not an apt comparison at all.

A closer parallel would be Zaire, which changed its name officially to République démocratique du Congo in 1997, and today in English-speaking countries is known as The Democratic Republic of Congo, because... why wouldn't it be? The English speaking world does not speak French. It means the same thing. Continuing to call the country Zaire would be odd. Insisting that non-French speakers call it République démocratique du Congo would be equally as odd. Given that there's no established history of calling it anything else in English, it made perfect sense to start referring to the country as the DRC. As apparently the Congolese understand, much to their credit.
