Hi Mr/Ms Overtired, This is Jeremy from scambiandJerry here. We're in the middle of translating All Countries of the World by Area with Hints into French, and we thought that simply changing the "Next" letter into the corresponding French answer (eg translating Uganda to Ouganda changes the Next letter from U to O) would work. It does change the "Next" letter in the answer panel below, but the "Next" letters that appear at the bottom-left of the map itself have not changed. How do we change the initial letters of countries appearing at the bottom-left of the map? Best wishes, Jeremy in Auckland and Giovanni in Rome!

Hi Jeremy. I wish I had an easy answer! The letters were made in Inkscape and there's no easy way to switch them to a different set of letters that I can think of.

I basically made tiles with every letter of the alphabet in both colours... then went through the list of countries and copied and pasted the order of letters from smallest to biggest country in a long row... then I went through each one and gave it the class "l xx" (lowercase l) where xx is the path name associated with the country in Step 2 (e.g. us for United States)... then finally selected them all and aligned them into the same spot.

So there's a stack of images and each one disappears when its country name is entered due to the little bit of CSS I added to the description ( .svg-holder .svg-correct.l { display: none; } ) which links to paths with the class "l xx".

The only way I know to make a set for French is to do that all again I'm afraid, which is a fair amount of work, particularly in testing as it's easy to make a mistake in the letter order or enter a class incorrectly.

If you download the SVG from the English quiz and open it in Inkscape you will see that the two alphabets I made are there outside the edge of the quiz, so at least that part is done already if you want to copy and paste a new list of letters from them.

I'd offer to do it myself but it was quite laborious and I'm pretty busy at the moment. I partly did it as a challenge to see if it was possible... which it was, but took a few hours :)

Feel free to ask any more questions, anyway! Cheers, O (mr!)

Hello Mr/Ms overtired, I have an idea for a quiz that I think would be great (if it's even possible to do), and I can't think of anyone else besides yourself who would be capable of constructing it. My idea is kind of a combination of your own 'Countries Being Drawn' series, and KingEureka's slideshow series. Confused? I'll explain:

The idea is that you have to guess a country by its shape (as shown on screen), but the country shape is constantly morphing from one to another (or maybe it could hold its shape for a few seconds, however long you see appropriate). The shapes work in a cycle, like the aforementioned slideshow series, so if you don't have time to get it at first, you can always wait for it come around again.

I have absolutely no idea if something like this is even plausible, but I just thought I would suggest it to you seeing as I've had the idea for over a year now, but I'm hopeless when it comes to SVG's and CSS etc.

Good luck if you decide to try it!!!

Just to expand on my explanation, say for example that the first country is Canada. Canada's shape would appear, and then maybe stay for a few seconds, before its shape morphs into the second country, in the case of this example, Laos. If the quiz taker fails to guess Laos before it morphs into the third country, they can wait until it comes back around to try again.

If it is possible to do, the quiz would be great if it were random (like your drawing countries series) with maybe 15 or so countries randomly appearing in a cycle each time. I'm not sure if it's possible to make it random and have a cycle at the same time, but I'm sure you can figure that out.

Also, before I finish pestering you, I'm not sure if this site may be helpful to give you some pointers at all:

Thank you again overtired!

Hey, thanks for the interesting idea. As far as I'm aware that kind of thing isn't possible unfortunately. The link you shared makes use of a plug-in which isn't possible on JP and looks like it would require coding beyond the CSS we can use on the site.

Appreciate the enthusiasm though :) It's a nice idea that I can certainly picture being a lot of fun if it was possible.

(I'm no coding expert. I've only learnt what I know of CSS since joining JetPunk so what you see in my quizzes is the limit of what I can currently do!)

No problem. I don't even know what CSS is really, so you're knowledge is far superior to mine :D
