The clue, "Countries starting with E to O" is a bit confusing. What if it said something like Countries starting with E-O. I originally read it as Countries starting with E or O, and couldn't understand why there were 11 landlocked countries with and E or O

Even after the rephrasing I still read it the way wheikes did. But this is my problem for flying over the clue. The phrasing is good now.

It's still ambiguous. I originally thought it was a country's name that starts with E and ends with O. Or can also be confused as a country started with E followed by O. Consider phrasing it as 'Country starting with the letter between D and P'. This is a brilliant quiz though! Keep 'em coming! :D

"Countries starting with E to O" seems seems completely clear to me, but I'm in the UK too and that's how it would be stated here. Maybe in the US it would be "E through O"? Perhaps it could be rephrased as "Starting with a letter between E and O" to make it more universal?

Got stuffed up by D.R. Congo, which I mentally consider to be a name of one word. The rest is legal junk. Yes, I know there are two Congoes, Is Russia two words (Russian Federation)? For me, two word countries are like Sri Lanka or even Viet Nam. Or with a compass direction, like South Korea.

All names are the standard common english short form ones used on JetPunk, as determined by the Countries of the World quiz. Without a standard, each person would have their own idea of what each country is called.

Just as you don't call South Korea simply Korea, the fact that there are two Congoes implies to use more precise names... I reckon you would prefer to call DRC "East Congo" but it's really not known as such ;).

Although he may be *technically* correct, practically we define "west of X" to mean the portion of the Earth west of X and east of the antimeridian. Primarily this stems from the definition of the Western Hemisphere, whereby "west" is defined to be anything west of the prime meridian and east of the antimeridian.

You should put Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Dominican Republic and more to the “Countries with more than one word” And also, the D.R.C is mostly made for the difference of the name. You don’t say something like “The Federal Republic of Germany” everyday, right?

None of those you mentioned satisfy the previous categories within the same group, thus are not valid. And we use the names featured on the Countries of the World quiz as standard.

If there were another country that could reasonably be called "Germany," then you'd probably want to make the distinction, yeah. How do you differentiate between the Republic of the Congo and the Democratic Republic of the Congo?

I lost a lot of time over the heights... it read it as "a maximum elevation of .....m" instead of; "over ....m" shouldnt it be a maximum elevation of over .... m anyway? or has my mind stopped working now and giving me silly suggestions haha. You say the room/elephant has a height of over 2m right? and not has a height over 2m?

it just feels weird to me the way it is written (the country has a maximum elevation over 5000m.....), but it could be just me.

I think either works, to me at least. Both "he has a weight over 100 kilos" and "he has a weight of over 100 kilos" sound fine to me. Perhaps it's one of those informal omissions that some of society has taken upon? Looking at the stats at least, there does not seem to be any issues in understanding for the majority, and I was primarily trying to keep the categories fairly short as to not go over two lines (like Pink #1).

got stumped on Mongolia because I read the first clue as starts with E or O... got all the way down to the 2nd-to-last one with Swaziland, but there are no countries that border Russia that are landlocked and start with E or O. Was very confused.
