I don't either. I really like these quizzes. They are a lot of work to prepare, and not so hopeless to finish as it seems at all. When you've already practised with other historical quizzes with a map, you really have a good chance to know hundreds of those names.

(I got 319, and I should have remembered a lot more. This is really a challenge.)

Same tbh. Even though I can't muster the energy to play some of your quizzes, they are very high-quality and ultimately worthy of features. I do have multiple issues with the update as well.

1. "Only hardcore JetPunkers are complaining, we have received feedback from casual users regarding this" For one, JetPunk is to blame for this lack of feedback as well. The commenting restriction and nomination restrictions to certain levels don't help casual users until they start to use the site more, and so lowering this would certainly fix things over restricting a small range of quizzes that hurts a few quizmakers (like you and Vicky) disproportionately.

2. Secondly, if the Quizmaster and Stewart dislike having so many of these quizzes featured, then feature them less! (even though it's not perfect, it's certainly better than this) Rather than restricting users' voices, this would allow for high-answer quizzes to be featured without hurting the casual experience. Rant over. :-(

Now it's 500, and I forgot about at least ten more that I should have known...

I like doing these historical map quizzes, because I like reading about folklore and other traditions. Lots of these place names ring a bell from traditional stories, or classical novels and poetry. Other place names regularly come up in books I start reading after doing the quizzes. They make me interested in the people who lived there at that time.

It's like getting to know these cultures better.

I would have thought that the various welsh states were already integrated into England at this point, since they were conquered a couple of centuries previous. Interesting that they, or rather whatever people the english put in control there, remained outside of England proper.

Wouldn't be until the 16th century when the so-called Welsh marcher lordships and the Principality of Wales were fully integrated into the Kingdom of England.

The principality itself around this time was ruled by the heir to the English throne. This is also why the heir apparent to the British throne carries the title "Prince/Princess of Wales".
