Huge work and good job! However, having to type "Lake" for Ladoga is a bit unnecessary as we are aiming to name a lake anyway. I know "Q" can be a very challenging letter when making quizzes.It didn't cross my mind that you were looking for the French name, as I only know it as the "Latin Quarter".

I know. It was hard finding something with a Q. However, if you type Latin Quarter, the system should recognized as an acceptable answer...even though you would still have to think about the answer in French. Thank you for your input.

I agree. Fortunately for me, the same requirement was waived if one enters the name of the river in Portuguese!

Thank you all for your comments. I am glad you enjoyed this quiz. I apologize for the issues you encountered. I have changed the type-in options to allow for "Ladoga" without "Lake" and for "Tagus" without "River" as acceptable answers (this was previously done for Tajo and Tejo in the case of the river). Thank you for your input. Be sure to nominate, like, and subscribe.
