The results should show the people's names. Not everyone of this people are universally known.

I second that request.

Yeah, fortunately there are links on the pictures, but something more explicit would be nice.

I did pretty well, but I didn't know who about half of the people were.

Level 71

And I still don't. Without the results telling us the information, I feel like I haven't learned anything from taking the quiz, which is the whole point of the quizzes.

Exactly what I was going to say. Churning out tile quizzes without explaining the answers doesn't help anyone who doesn't already know all the answers.

Yeah, another vote for names with the answers. 75% of the ones

I missed, I had no idea who they were, and I still don’t.

you're so right - why are there still no names?
+2
Level 70
Jun 27, 2021
I definitely agree. There were a lot of people I didn't recognize, and I had to manually click on the image and look at the Wikipedia link to figure out who they were. It was rather tedious, and would have been more convenient to be able to see names at the end.

Quizmaster, can you make this happen?

I chuckled at a few of the photos as bait. I liked Leonardo DiCaprio for the Italy one and David Hasselhoff for the Germany one.

Level 63

And Tendulkar for the United Kingdom one.

Level 75

Putting Hasselhoff in Germany was pure genius. Bravo.

Level 84
Jun 2, 2021
Well I missed that one, mostly because I didn't recognise Heidi Klum. I knew it was probably wrong, but still went for the wrong one.

I also didn't know that Tendulkar guy, and Geri Halliwell is totally unrecognisable (I know that wikipedia uses what they can, and mostly recent pictures, but come on, that's not how most people remember her). So yeah, I also messed those two.

I recognized Geri Halliwell based on the picture.

Cue the "Hugh Jackman is technically 'from' the UK because he has UK citizenship".

Level 72
Jun 5, 2021
I don't think that's what "from" means. You can be a UK citizen from any other country.

I mistook Luka Modric for Mark Knopfler...

Lucked out on this and only missed one, though there were several people I didn't recognize I was able to make reasonable guesses. My one miss was Michelangelo. I don't remember ever seeing a portrait of him before.

There are at least 2 errors that I see, and likely more. Van Gogh was Dutch. DiCaprio is American.

and that justin beiber is from canada and not usa

Those aren't errors. You're not reading the instructions.

Hey Sachin Tendulkar wasn't born in UK. He was born in Mumbai. And he still enjoys the Indian passport.

This isn't a very good quiz, it's confusing as to which answers are correct/incorrect. Also, it would be nice to know which country the other people are from.

The quiz is accurate. Greta Thunberg is not from Germany.

Level 68
Jun 29, 2021
Yeah... if I asked my Canadian friend if he considered himself American, I'm sure I'd get a slap for it. No Canadian I ever met says "I'm from USA".

BTW, 'From' a place technically means born there and at least spent some of your life there, and Leo diCaprio might have Italian ancestry but he's also half German and Russian - and he's 100% American born and raised. Greta Thunburg is also 100% Swedish, not German.

Could you find a photo of that guy without sunglasses? That seems like it makes things unfairly difficult

Wow, lots of these comments are from people who are having trouble reading the quiz results accurately. Maybe the big green check marks and big red Xs should be for the tiles that match the criteria, and plain-text "You got it right" or "You got it wrong" could help those people? Or leave them to the wolves because it was obvious enough.
