Nice idea! Not sure Easter island, despite being politically part of Chile, belongs to 'South America'

All depends what you mean by 'belong'. If you mean which country 'owns' Easter island it is Chile, if you mean which Continent is nearer to Easter Island then it depends where you measure from, if Oceania means Australia (as everyone seems to offer in jetpunk when it is said Australia is a continent not an island) then the distance is 11,084 km, whereas the distance to Chile (South America) is 3,686 km.

There's no one definition for what a continent is, ergo, there should not be one continent that a region necessarily belongs to.

What do you mean rightfully? Everest is certainly taller than Elbrus. And you understand Eurasia means Europe and Asia, not just Europe?

Same, but after a few tries I realised Everest was the right one, lol.

I did the same thing. Yes, Swilkes, I'm guessing most of us on here know what Eurasia means. For some reason I read Eurasian as European.

Didn't realize you required the "continent-related answer" to be retyped. Is that really necessary?

Accidentally i wrote down Palau instead Perth (both on P) so i got all first letters in Oceania and then I tried Ayers and it worked as Uluru! That's pointless, because you're supposed to look for another name of this!

For Taupo, I kept typing volcano, caldera, etc. because Taupo is a volcano (volcanic caldera filled with a lake, I know) which confuzzled me before I finally tried lake, the last thing I had left :/ Could those things I mentioned be added as type-ins, or would that mess it up?
+1

I think the clue is misleading. It shouldn't say "Taupo is a type of this". It should just say "Taupo is one of this"

This quiz is great and similar to many of my other favorite quizzes, but I have one suggestion. I am I the only one who realized that Wien is a type-in for the English name of Wien? That's got to be fixed. I didn't know it was Vienna, but I certainly think that a question asking you to give an alternative name for a place should not have the original place as an answer.

Very fun. The definition for "atoll" needs to be reworked. Maybe "ring-shaped coral reef"? After all, atolls develop on the former coastline of partially-submerged volcanic mountains sitting on subsiding tectonic plates, so atolls of any significant age do not form the shoreline of any island, but generally involve multiple islands at various points on the rim, or even the interior, of the outer reef. ("Atolhu" is a Maldivian - Dhivehi - word meaning something like province, which bears close similarity to the geographic feature, given that physical atolls were convenient ways to combine islands for administrative purposes.)
