Don't worry, you'll get your points. But the scoring table is only updated every two hours, so you might not see the points right away.

I wish there was a way to label the answers on the map. Even given the highest peak and name of range in the answers, I still had no idea where many of them were located. I know, I know, that's what Google is for.

I guess this feature was added after your comment, but I'm leaving this here for future reference. You can see the answers. The show up in the bottom left corner below the map if you hover with the mouse over any of the green / red areas representing the mountain ranges. You can see the ones you got also while you're taking the quiz. And of course this is true for any quiz with a similar setting.

Damn, Southern Alps. New Zealand, you've really outdone yourself. Well I guess it's more creative than calling the massive range that divides things the Great Dividing Range.

I don't really understand the logic of spelling on this otherwise really good site. I tried ten different ways to spell Appalachian but didn't realise it had an 'H' in it so it wasn't accepted, Another time it will accept just the first three letters of a much longer word you could spell in all sorts of ways.
