Very sorry for having to reset this quiz again. FAOStat has three different land cover data sources. I discovered that the MODIS satellite data wasn't very accurate, and that the CCI_LC data was much better.

I thought it better to reset the quiz rather than maintain inaccurate data. I apologize to the few hundred people who lost their points.

I agree with the commenters’ criticisms here. For me, I am able to type a sub-3 cotw result, but I still don’t care for these quizzes. I would rather see more creative quizzes get featured, rather than “guess 18-25 countries” quizzes where I’ll always miss a few answers in guessing no matter how hard I try. Sure, I learn something, I do like that, but having to constantly guess and deduce off of that so many times is annoying for me.

Congratulations on an incredible time for Countries of the World - I don't think I've ever gotten less than six minutes, as I can type neither quickly nor accurately! As a result of my deficiencies, I do not particularly enjoy the speed-typing quizzes so I usually just skip those or content myself with the one or two points I can get from them.

Wow, I'm surprised by how little India has. The fact that Bangladesh has more than double the amount of India is crazy.

Hmm it says I lost points but when I open the quiz it says 5/5 points, same at the end of the quiz - the total remains at 5/5.

It takes time for a reset quiz to update the points for all users
