The EU wasn't called the EU in 1954 (or even the EC, or the EEC) - it was the European Coal and Steel Community.

Needs to be changed to the "Western European Union," I think.

The Western European Union was a military alliance, then entirely distinct from the Common Market.

No Barcelona as a Mediterranean city with +2mill inhabitants?

Barcelona only has 1.62M in the city proper.

Beirut city proper only has around 433k and Tripoli has 1.2 milliion...

Completely inconsistent! For some cities they used the metro area population and for others only the city proper.

Or Athens or Tel Aviv or Izmir or Naples or Tunis or Beirut, another 6-pack of cities.

What about Barcelona being 2+ million city? Istanbul? Athens?
+2
Level 80
Feb 10, 2023
Neither Barcelona nor Athens have 2M in the city proper (1.62M for Barcelona, 0.64M for Athens). Istanbul isn't on the Mediterranean.

Beirut has less than half a million in the city proper. The quiz is entirely inconsistent.

It would be helpful to add "coastal" to the Mediterranean category.

The modern city extends to the coast. Ostia is within the official city limits, for example.

Level 82

Oddly, Google Maps displays borders for Rome that don't include Ostia, even though Wikipedia states Ostia belongs to Rome's X Municipio. Not sure what boundaries Google Maps is using. The Metropolitan City of Rome Capital undoubtedly reaches the Mediterranean, as does the comune of Rome. So various definitions give Rome Mediterranean status. On the other hand Barcelona is a debatable case. The Province of Barcelona certainly exceeds 2 million (almost 2.5 times that). Within the province is the comarca of Barcelonès, with exceeds 2 million, and within that is the municipality of Barcelona, which falls short at 1.6 million. I would say of the three administrative divisions, the Province is the one that most closely corresponds to the actual city of Barcelona as most would recognise it. An semi-analogous US case would be Los Angeles County and the City of Los Angeles, with the former corresponding to the comarca, and the latter to the muncipality. There is no US equivalent of the province

Why are Spanish cities not listed alphabetically like the other sections? It's off-putting
+3
Level 80
Feb 12, 2023
Quite a few categories are in non-alphabetical order. I agree that it's inconsistent and confusing.
+2
Level 68
Feb 14, 2023
I believe most are written in order of their corresponding ranking. E.g. most populous at the top and such. This makes the most sense when categories are "Top 6" and not "The only 6"
+1
Level 80
Feb 15, 2023
I see the logic, but it can be confusing due to the random selection of categories, some of which are and some of which aren't.

Even still, the interpreters at the UN, I suspect, are speaking Mandarin and not Cantonese or some other dialect and thus Mandarin should be an an acceptable answer.

There are many more cities exceeding a population of 2M on the Mediterranean coast.

I wish quizzes would specify that they include the Winter Olympics in "olympic host cities" - lacking a capital letter btw

I'm quite happy to admit it's my own bias that trips me up here- the Australian take is definitely that there are *The* Olympics and then there's the Winter Olympics

Please accept "Olympic Valley" as an answer for U.S. Olympic Host Cities, so that quiz takers do not need to type the offensive term "Squaw Valley." Per Wikipedia, the name of the community is now Olympic Valley, California.

I'd also request that "Palisades Tahoe" or just "Tahoe" be accepted. That's the current name of the resort, & while not the town, someone who'd heard of the name change could easily be tripped up.

If possible, make "FRG" and "Federal Republic of Germany" as correct answers instead of just West Germany. I tried FRG at the last second and lost.

Level 46
Apr 14, 2023
If it's the Federal Republic of Germany, then "Germany" itself should be an acceptable answer.

squaw valley actually changed its name to olympic valley or palisades tahoe because squaw is a derogatory term for first nation women, i think either of the 3 names should be accepted or the answer changed altogether :)
