I almost missed Kingstown because of the capital cities quiz (where they are both validated if you type Kingston).

Please clarify that only independent nations' capitals count. Otherwise, Bermuda, Turks & Caicos, etc. would be included.

Got most but couldn't remember St John's or Castries.

Also, just fyi you accept Guatemala and Mexico, but not simply Panama. The quiz requires that you type in Panama City. SInce it is the furthest away of all of these, I imagine that this inconsistency tripped up at least a few people.

Panama City and Guatemala City are both tied at 77%, so hopefully all good. We accept Guatemala because the World Capitals quiz does, but we've gone one further by also allowing Mexico, which is what all the locals call it. What do others think? Should we accept "Panama" as a type-in for the city here too?

Yeah I think so because, as I've pointed out to QM before though he hasn't yet acknowledged it, the capital of Panama is also Panama, according to the locals, or anyone who speaks Spanish. Same with Mexico and Guatemala. Same for Kuwait (Al Kuwayt).

I missed Caracas. Spent too long trying to remember one of the tiny island countries I was missing when I actually wasn't missing any.

A.k.a. "Type every North American capital except for Bridgetown, Port-of-Spain, and St. Georges (With an extra trick capital thrown in the mix)
