Only missed Sofia... my last second guess was Paris, but I guess it's not very high above sea level. Because it's on a river...

Ackchually... Paris being by a river doesn't mean it couldn't be above that elevation, rivers have varying elevations too and don't stay on sea level most of the time.

True, but large rivers do tend to be towards the end of their life and fairly low-altitude I suppose.

When it said Capitals and Countries, I thought it meant ones that are both capitals AND countries. (Luxembourg, San Marino, Vatican City, etc)

I briefly thought that too, but the key is looking at the possible number of answers (90 for that question).

Same, I was stuck on that basis for a while too until I realised there were only a really small number of options that would work and something else must be going on. Suggest it would be clearer if the clue was worded Countries "and/or" Capitals of Europe.

That would not be clearer at all imo. The "and" would only make it confusing. I think it is fine the way it is

It was originally "and" and I changed it to "or", which I think is best.

Okay, there must be a bug since this happened on another quiz as well. I'll investigate.

It sorted itself out at 15 past the hour as expected, but it's like the points scale isn't being calculated for non-features?

When a quiz is initially featured, it's supposed to automatically recalculate the scoring scales.

Oh right that makes sense then. Probably just a mistake somewhere causing it not to recalc.

Why is Amsterdam not considered on the coast? I'm not saying it should be, but just want to know the reasoning behind the categorization.

The Port of Amsterdam is located on the North Sea Canal, not by the sea.

In the first section (Countries of Europe), shouldn't Cyprus count? I know in this website, Cyprus is considered part of the Asian continent, but given that we are talking about the EU in here...
