Thanks to the help of Pandora49, the issue of dark-mode users being able to see the inside of the mystery country has been resolved, as well as some other issues regarding the SVG, such as paths not appearing. However, another issue has appeared, being that dark-mode users now see a small portion of the country at the bottom left of their screens. Fortunately, this issue doesn't make it obvious for the quiz-taker to find the country, but I am looking for a fix, for now, the quiz is playable for all users.

But if you're on dark mode you can what the country is before even playing. Maybe you should put a note not to play in dark mode??

Just a suggestion / something to bring to your attention. I'm not sure how you'd fix it as I'm not as well-versed with CSS. Perhaps changing the background to nothing (I think there's a see-through background or something) rather than white?

This is a great quiz! Fun idea, good mix of difficult and hard questions. I actually got the answer by mistake because I thought Sudan was the largest landlocked country in Africa :P

I also replied to your comment on my Marco Polo quiz. A year ago, I had absolutely no experience with SVGs, and now I'm close to getting one featured! So if I have any advice, it would be to keep on experimenting. This is already a great start and you'll keep getting better with time. Hopefully one day one of your quizzes will get featured through nominations! Until then though, I'm always happy to give advice if you want it :)

This is great! If you could find a way to fix the whole dark mode thing, it is definately worthy of a feature.

Thank you so much, though I am not sure that this is feature-worthy... Yeah, I really want to fix the dark mode issue but there are some other issues with this I'm also trying to fix.

I spent so much time answering the questions that I forgot to guess the country lol

Also, if you find a fix, will there be a series?

+1
Level 70
Feb 21, 2022
Yeah, I was thinking that a series could be possible out of this since the CSS itself was very simple and the only part which took a while was making the paths, work and there were a few issues with that. A series might happen, and I'd be interested in making a randomized version if it is possible.

I was thinking about it, but I decided not to because if you guess the country the quiz ends, but I could add 30 more seconds or so.

Edit: I added 60 seconds

Fun quiz, love the concept of getting all the answers correct when you guess the mystery country. Most quizzes force you to name everything else too, it adds a nice touch of using your brain to guess what the country is using only a few lines. nominated :P

Great quiz. (Just a note that entering “South Sudan” reveals all the answers except than main one. Probably because you’ve set the “SUDAN” type-in on each answer to “contains” instead of “starts with”.)

Maybe don't make the first line drawn a perfectly straight line, I got Sudan in just a few guesses off of that alone

Tomato should work for "What type of food is thrown."

I was kind of disappointed when the quiz ended once I got the country. Usually, guessing the country is a bonus point.
