A bit more leeway or Andorra la Vella would be nice. I tried Andorra vella and Andorra da vella without any luck

No other quizzes I've taken give any latitude on the capital names - all you have to do is remember "La Vella". Way easier than say... Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte or Bandar Seri Begawan:)

and Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte isn't as difficult to spell as some people claim it to be. Jaya-Warden-Epura. Not hard, once you've memorized it.

I don´t think the coordinates you have given are latitudes... latitudes are north or south, and not west or east. Reykjavik´s latitude for example is 64°09' N. ;)

I've always found that if you want to remember ("want" being the operative word) how to spell a difficult word/name, pronounce it the way it appears. Something like rake-JAV-ick would get you close, and all you'd have to remember is that the first syllable starts with "reyk" not "rayk". It's worked for me for years, especially with words like REN-dez-vowss (rendezvous) or KIRE-gizz-stan (Kyrgyzstan...just remember it's all y's to start) or yas-triz-ZEMSKI (Carl Yastrzemski). First time I ever saw the word yarmulke, I had no idea what word I was looking at. Now, in my head I say yar-MULL-key, and can spell it without a hitch.

Your way seems very confusing Don, and would do the opposite for me, then you have all sort of words/letters in your head that have nothing to do with the spelling ( though for pronunciation a trick like that can be useful)

Breaking it into pieces/ syllables helps. Rey-kja-vik (pronounced righ (like high) kja like em kja and vik (like thick) here)

It means bay (vik) of smokes by the way, reykja is the genitive plural. (from reykr=smoke, in dutch smoke=rook, and in german it is rauch, english reek is most likely related, shakespeare still used it meaning smoke/fumes)

So smoke bay, maybe you can remember is it reek ya wick ;)

This site accepts Delhi for New Delhi, so it maybe should accept Andorra for Andorra la Vella.

While I agree that Andorra should be accepted for Andorra la Vella, this isn't really the same thing.

It's much closer to Kuwait, New York, Guatemala, etc. being acceptable without the extraneous "City"

Of course, New York should always be accepted as such. City is NOT part of its name.

All three of us have lived close to New York and can easily argue over this, but kalbahamut still holds a point.

I agree with kalbahamut's point but thought perhaps that Vatican City would make a better example than New York.

Since New York is both a city and a State, it is necessary to write the City (or NYC) when you mean the city of New York. Here we usually just write NYC (city) or NYS (state) to differentiate between the two if the meaning isn't clear from the context.

On every other quiz you simply accept Andorra for Andorra La Vella. For equivalent North American quizzes, will you now be changing them to require "Mexico City" rather than the shorthand always otherwise acceptable?

Nowhere does it accept Andorra. I think you're confusing it with the alternative type-in "La vella".
