The way it's phrased only islands 1-5 count, but not Crete, so 2-5 are valid answers. Same for the first question.

Shouldn't Shetland be Mainland? The archipelago is the Shetland Islands, but the largest island is simply known as Mainland.

The archipelago is called Shetland (see their own website here https://www.shetland.org) and is also known as The Shetland Islands.

Yes... we agree on the archipelago name. But we're pointing out the island name is 'Mainland'. This is 'Name a Valid Island' not 'Name a Valid Archipelago'.

Fair enough. I was arguing that the archipelago is known as Shetland, not The Shetland Isles. I agree that Mainland should be considered right, at least as a type-in.

Wait, the first question makes no sense. Technically every piece of land is an island, and I tried Afro-Eurasia and it didn't work.

SirPhillipines, don't you buy into the definition of "island" which excludes continental landmasses? And also, why have you spelled your own name wrong?

Yes. Please add an area / population requirement for each answer, because right now there are some islands missing that people have probably never heard of but exist nonetheless.

Regarding question 3...there's a Queens Island, Georgia (the state). Maybe define what's included?
+2
Level 70
Dec 16, 2020
Agreed, as stated, the question asks for any islands that share a name with a NYC borough, which should include Queens Island (Georgia) and Brooklyn Island (Antarctica). I think the question should be reworded to note that it is looking for islands that are coterminous with NYC boroughs.

And regarding four - most European nations have an island with the same name in Dubai's World Islands. If you don't count those, there's a San Marino Island off the coast of Miami.

Australia isn't an island since it's the continental landmass of the continent Australia / Oceania. This is similar to the Americas and Afro-Eurasia.

Level 52
Aug 16, 2021
military bases aren't overseas territories, otherwise the US would be in almost every country, therefore cyprus isn't technically shared with anyone, not counting northern cyprus which is only regognised by turkey

"One of the five largest islands, not counting Greenland", if greenland isn't counting, why would there be only four answers, and why isn't Australia one of them?
+1
Level 54
Apr 17, 2022
Australia isn't an island because it's the primary landmass for the continent Australia / Oceania, like Afro-Eurasia & the Americas. The reason why there are only 4 answers is because Greenland is included in one of the five largest islands, but it's not an answer. However, that is worded confusingly.
