Probably should. It's a pain to write even when you've just found that it's Micronesia.

You can just type "Micronesia" and it still works.

Agreed. I typed FSM and when it wasn't accepted, I assumed they were counting it as an M and moved on.

Dang, I missed Fansipan because I only know it as Phan Xi Pang. Never occurred to me that it would be under an "F" quiz.

Florence is pretty misplaced, it should be more northern than Corsica and about at the height of the southernmost point of Liguria.

I didn't guess Micronesia because it didn't look like it was highlighted to me, does anyone else have this issue?

Yep, it wasn't highlighted for me either. I knew I had 4 left, but only 3 showed as still needing to be identified. Had it been highlighted, I definitely would've gotten Micronesia.

Yes, same. It wasn't clear to me that it needed to be guessed. Likewise if took me a while to figure out that the bullseyes were mountains

Please add an optional E to 'Fa(e)roes'. I struggled for minutes to find the spelling the quiz wanted, before realising it was the E that was the issue...

Its not spelled like that neither in English or Danish
+1

Danish Færøerne seems like it kind of.. is.. spelled that way.

Still usually not spelled that way in English, but asking for Faeroe as a type-in seems reasonable.

Apr 29, 2022
i would swear I was taught to spell it with the 'e' when I was young. Looking at Google, a few references to the Met Office Shipping Forecast still use 'Faeroe' but I can see that it's probably considered archaic now..

I don't really think FSM is fair because it is accepted and typically referred to as Micornesia, so even though I knew that was Micronesia, I didnt guess it
+2
Level 54
Jan 4, 2022
Not as of the Countries of the World Quiz, though. It's like calling the United States unfair on Countries that Start with 'U' because it's referred to as 'America'.
+1
Level 76
Mar 21, 2022
USA is usually referred to as US or USA a lot more than "America". Your example doesn't support your contention.

Level 70
Apr 1, 2022
FSM is usually called FSM, and not Micronesia. For example the national government's website is https://www.fsmgov.org/ and on that site the country is called FSM or "Federated States of Micronesia", which is fair enough, because "Micronesia" refers to a region that includes other countries.

Agree, a poor choice. Saudi Arabia wasn't on the 'K' quiz (KSA), and Micronesia shouldn't be on the 'F' quiz for the same reason.
+2
Level 89
Mar 22, 2022
not really because the K stands for Kingdom and is also not used in other kingdoms like Kingdom of the Netherlands or the Kingdom of Spain. The F stands for Federated and is commonly given in the abbreviation so it makes sense to use it here.
+1
Level 76
Mar 27, 2022
The nation is referred to as Micronesia by most people who have even heard of the country. FSM however would be an unfamiliar acronym to most of those people. Which is why it shouldn't be used just like KSA shouldn't be used.
+2
Level 56
Mar 29, 2022
Micronesia’s name is Federated States of Micronesia. KSA’s name is Saudi Arabia. The difference is that Kingdom is in the official name, while Federated is in the common name.

Not common at all, I've never heard anyone use Federated when talking about Micronesia.

Level 70
Apr 1, 2022
Well, that might just be a "you" problem. I usually see it referred to as FSM or Federated States of Micronesia, as that seems to be the most useful way of distinguishing the country from the wider region of Micronesia.

Level 63

FSM is a country located in a much larger region called Micronesia.

The arrow for BoF could just as easily be pointing to Fredricton (a provincial capital) since they're essentially in the same spot; maybe it could be accepted as an alternate answer?

I'll pass it on. Just came over the pass/ridge near Hehuanshan the other day. It rises to 3,416 meters. Before you look it up online, any idea where it is at? :)
