The equator is unfair. I was looking and looking, but could not find what else there is on the map that needs to be typed in.

Hmm, I agree with Zef. It may not be interesting if everything is too easy, but here it didn't feel interesting when I discovered what the 20th item was! (I still love this series though)

Having decided to dedicate the next hour going through every quiz in this series, the equator stuck out like a sore thumb because it's presence was so different from the other maps. But, had 'E' been one of the first ones I did, maybe more difficult. Great series :) Nice work

I tried "Earth", because I didn't notice anything indicated on the map.

Me too. Adding an arrow pointing to it would make it much better. I like to miss when I don't know the answer, because at least I learn something from it. But there's no gain in missing because I can't find which item I should be looking for.

I also tried earth in desperation. On my monitor the equator and heading both looked black, which was even more confusing since there was another black heading for cities. I was thinking, "Another city that's something else, too, such as Singapore?" But I couldn't think of any that started with e. Adding an arrow for the equator would have solved the issue. Great quiz, anyway.

I think it was the first thing I got, cause I always spell ecuador wrong before I spell it right haha (equator equador, but not ecuator)

The equator is entirely fair. There's a blank space under "other" so you clearly know that you're looking for something, plus the equator is never included on any other Jetpunk maps. The fact that it's visible here is a dead giveaway.

I'm at level 70 (so I've taken quite a few quizzes on JetPunk) and I still didn't notice the equator. Not saying it shouldn't be on this quiz, but it might not be as obvious as you all seem to think. Would changing its color be a fair compromise?

I think that's a sign that the difficulty is in locating it rather than identifying it. If it was clear, I think it'd be among the most guessed answers. I think it should be more clearly indicated as finding the locations you're supposed to identify is not the point.

I freaked out because of that "other" category. Had 2 minutes left and spent them all looking for equator apparently.

An equator is hard to see, do you know anyone that has ever seen it? ;) They say it is only visible when it rains on a tuesday when the sun just rises over the horizon
