The heraldic emblem of Charlemagne was 3 toads , and of the later Valois 'semi de crapauds' - sprinkled with toads. These were understandably misinterpreted as 'Frogs' by the British and became a nickname.

Well. Whaz are you waiting for. Enlighten us, give us some example. I'm sure the QM woukd be delighted to have the quiz improved. Give us a question that has a real chance to be known by at least 20-25% people from all around the world. Hell, I'm from a former communist country and I can't think of a resonable answer.

Maybe instead of suggesting a title change, you could suggest some great answers in the eastern part of Europe that could be included...ones that the general population would have a chance at guessing. Quality quizmakers like Relessness do a lot of research to try to make good quizzes but the quiz isn't fun if the answers are so obscure that less than 50% can get the majority of them correct.

Just an aside: I feel like 4 front-page quizzes per day is the ideal number. 5 seems like overkill. Even though I often end up bored and looking through the site to find others... but on a day when I have things to do, 4 is still doable. And it never feels like too few except once in a while when 2 of the front page quizzes are on sports, 1 is on Pokemon, and 1 is fast typing to 100 or something like that.

I should have done that with the northern region of Germany and Netherlands clue. I knew the answer, but I kept trying to add an e in there and couldn't figure out why it wasn't accepted, since Friesland is part of the region.

The airport is Leonardo da Vinci. Flew in/out many times. Like it's LaGuardia (or JFK), not "Queens" airport in NYC lol (I know, I know, "Roma-Fiumincino" but that's like Dallas-Ft. Worth...or SeaTac!) Cheers! :) Love your quizzes
