Excellent quiz! I have to admit though to trying very hard to make "Orthanc" begin with an I for the Saruman one.

I find it hard to think about a dwelling as a location. Shouldn't a location be a bit more unique? Or maybe we'll have Locations-by-letter-U and "upstairs" is one of the answers.

Well, it is confined to a general area, unlike "upstairs". Mostly Canada.

The singular for Inuit is Inuk. So, "Inuit people might live in one," or "An Inuk..."

in greek the city is "poli" and the big Poli was Constantinople, so the greeks used to say "is tin Poli" (to the city), istinpoli -> istanbul

please accept "Io To" or "Iwo To" for Iwo Jima

Iwoto (or Iwo To) is official Japanese name for the island since 2007. It also appears that way on some newer English language maps published by the US Navy, so I agree the answer should be changed, or at least Iwoto and Iwojima should both be allowable type-ins.

kalba.... do you mean people actually read the comments before doing the quiz?? to me, that's cheating... i prefer to be shot down in flames by answering to the best of my ability, not to the best of someone else's...and so often, my spelling means i cannot get an answer i can say but not type correctly

stone: yes, many users do that, but no, that's not what I meant. If the quiz author changes the accepted type-ins for answers it will make the quiz easier for the next person who takes it who doesn't know how to spell whether they cheat by looking at the comments or not.

When people say "please accept..." do they expect the Quizmaster to go back and change their scores? Or are they just going to take the quiz over again, now that they've seen the answers? I don't understand this.

I think they're trying to be generous toward those who have not yet taken the quiz by suggesting type-ins for answers. Or, maybe they anticipate getting the answer wrong in a couple years when the quiz rotates through the front page again. Usually when I make such a comment I'm just trying to be helpful.

I'd have never got Isfahan except that a friend of mine was born there. It just doesn't make western news.

Great quiz, it was pretty challenging. One tiny mistake is that the word anglais (for Ivory Coast) shouldn't be capitalised.

Yes, in French, in Spanish, in Portuguese, in Italian... In all these Latin languages, countries are written with capital letter, of course, but nationalities and languages are not.

Nice quiz. I would suggest not having INDIA as an answer when two of the other questions are US states where people might guess Indiana. Like I did.
