Wow, very cool quiz! I especially love some of the symbols like the Olympic rings and volcanoes. Is there a reason why I can't nominate this though?

Quizmaster introduced a policy where quizzes with more than 100 questions (=answers) can not be nominated unfortunately.

Amazing quiz as usual! Only got 201/250 so I still have a lot to learn, mostly with the nature areas and mountains. Only recommendation would be adding Seville as a type-in for Sevilla.

Thanks!! Pretty solid for the first attempt considering there is quite a few answers I haven't seen anywhere else on Jetpunk yet.

Added Seville

Good quiz, got 235.

Two small things: the island's name is Oléron and maybe make Lough Neagh an answer as it is already blue?

Cheers

Thanks! Completely forgot to add Lough Neagh. Fixed.

Like Isle of Man or Wight I kept the full name. Just in the original language in this case.

That's not the issue. The island is written as Oléron (with an o, not an a). Neither Oléron nor Ile d'Oléron work

Gotcha. Fixed. Seems my French is a bit rusty.

Good quiz! I really liked it!

Just a couple things:

- Cantabrian Sea should be accepted for Bay of Biscay, since that is how it is referred to in Spanish (Mar Cantábrico)

- Duero (the Spanish name) should be accepted for Douro (the Portuguese name)

-(Lac) Léman should be accepted for Lake Geneva

Thanks a lot!

Added Leman and Duero.

As you say mar Cantábrico is the translation for Cantabrian Sea which is not the same as Bay of Biscay. There is the name Golfo de Vizcaya however. My source here is Wikipedia so let me know if you have one that suggests otherwise.

Really cool quiz! Just a small request: can you please add Puglia as type-in for Apulia? (Puglia is Apulia in italian)

What a piece of work! It could almost be broken up into three or four quizzes. Small point: Brussels and Luxembourg are in the cities category rather than capitals.

Nice quiz! Please add Gran Sasso for the mountain in central Italy, Corno Grande is just the highest peak
+2
Level 70
Mar 8, 2023
Thanks! Corno Grande is a mountain itself while Gran Sasso is the massif. Still added as type in since neither is well known.

Small point but you've highlighted Lewis & Harris and given the answer as Isle of Lewis, which is only the northern part and isn't actually an isle in itself.

Podgorica should be in the capitals list, not the cities list.

Please accept 'Occitania' for 'Occitanie', it is a very common used word for describing 'Occitanie'.

I like the quiz very much but some things are rather hard to spot on the map. Could you add a highlight funcition, circles around small things or maybe just increase the size of the needles for cities?
