Good idea, and I hope this gets featured soon!
Level 57

Philadelphia is not a state capital. The state capital of Pennsylvania is Harrisburg. Also, you should accept "JFK" for the first one and just "Melania" for the question about first ladies.
Level 73
Nov 16, 2020
+1 for JFK to be accepted as a type-in for Kennedy. It's widely used on this website.
Level 50

Pakistan left the Commonwealth (in 1972) but rejoined 17 years later. Since the question just says "Members that left the Commonwealth", which it did, I propose that Pakistan is a valid answer. South Africa also left and then returned.

Pretty decent quiz, I have nominated it. Some others could perhaps be considered for the one about major pre-columbian states, such as the Zapotec civilisation, maybe Teotihuacan and the Wari.
Level 82

Commonwealth of what?
Level 56
Feb 10, 2021
Quite. Equally: United States of what?
Level 46
Dec 11, 2021
Definitely the United Mexican States. Surprised Mexico city wasn't a valid answer.
Level 73
Feb 17, 2021
Accept Octavian for Augustus.

Good quiz. I was suprised by the first ladies. Since most of the first presidents were foreign-born, I thought the same would surely be true of their wives. However, Louisa Adams was indeed the first and the only one before Melania Trump.

They were born in the territory that became the US. The US just wasn't a country yet.
Level 75
Mar 19, 2024
Martin Van Buren was the first US president to be born in the USA. Just a nice little fact from the early days of America.
Level 64

Who wanna leave the commonwealth?

Barbados has entered the chat.

Level 84
Jan 24, 2022
Barbados doesn't want to leave the Commonwealth. Wanting to be a republic does not mean wanting to leave a beneficial alliance. I would very much like my country to become a republic and remain in the Commonwealth of Nations.
Level 49
Apr 3, 2022
Maybe you could accept JFK for Kennedy?!
Level 84
Jul 18, 2022
It will never happen.
Level 66
Aug 15, 2022
I interpreted, "Assassinated U.S. Presidents", as "Name someone who assassinated a US president". IMO it should be changed.
Level 78
Jan 27, 2024
or at least put it later in the quiz to make clearer that the hint always explicitly gives the people you're trying to name (monarchs, nations, presidents etc, rather than here "[someone who]..." could be implied)
Level 55
Apr 9, 2024
I would rephrase as 'U.S Presidents who were assassinated'
Level 56

Why is New York accepted as a state capital but not Albany or Sacramento
Level 67
May 11, 2023
NYC is a former national capital, which is what the question is trying to elicit. Albany and Sacramento are only state capitals. Should the question be re-worded for clarity? That is for the quizmaster to decide.
Level 62
Mar 31, 2023
This should accept "Labor" as a spelling and not just "Labour"
Level 60
May 11, 2023
no, it's a name.
Level 84
May 11, 2023
Countless names on JetPunk have lenient type-ins.
Level 84
Jul 13, 2023
This marks the first time in my life that knowledge I obtained in college in my 'History of Greek Archeology' class actually came in handy.

You should specify that you're referring to Columbus's first voyage, otherwise there are way more acceptable answers.
