Hey, you might want to update the 'Leading World Cup Goalscorer' question as it is now not true, considering that Miroslav Klose surpassed it at this year's World Cup. Thanks

Ramadan is often transliterated to Ramzan, Ramazan. These answers should be accepted.

At least as a name it appears also elsewhere, particularly in ex USSR it seems (e.g. current president of Chechnia).

True! 'Ramzan' is a faster pronunciation in Turkish, and a fair transliteration of Ramazan, and is used widely outside the Arab states (which combined only make up ~23% of all Muslims worldwide). Ramazan it is.

I am surprised that someone has not already tried to show off by pointing out that Ringo's given first name is Richard and requested that be accepted. (Wait! I guess it's me.)

can't buy into this...His last name is also Starkey. It asks for first name for Starr. He is either Richard Starkey or Ringo Starr, but never Richard Starr

You are correct, but if you accept my comment without the jocular parenthetical ending you will note that I was actually intending to mock the suggestion that Richard be accepted.

Rue (as in McClanahan) is used in cooking. And the proper spelling of the river is Rhein, which should be accepted.

Rhein is not the *only* proper spelling... That river also flows in France and the Netherlands, you know?

yea you could also say the proper spelling is Rijn. But I agree I tried Rhein first and think it should be accepted

But I agree I tried Rhein first and think it should be accepted. As the general custom is to accept the answer in the native tongue of whatever country the question is about.

I don't think that's the general custom at all, e.g. Italian cities

Yeah, well, I was thinking that Rue McLanahan could use the herb rue in her cooking, right? (Tricky, since rue is also the answer to another question on the quiz.)

I put that comment awhile back. Rue is the common name for the herb Ruta Graveolens (you can find it under either name in Wikipedia).
