The "States above 11 million in Population" section is outdated. Florida now has more people than New York. Pennsylvania now has more people than my home state of Illinois. Please fix the order.

It's not official yet. The Greek and Macedonian governments have signed an agreement for the change, but it has to be ratified by both of their respective parliaments. Macedonia will also be holding a referendum about the change later this year regarding the changes this would require for their constitution.

The referendum was successful, but there are still quite some steps left before the name becomes official.

Same. I assume anyone that knew more than Sharjah knew all 7 and therefore 10% of quiz takers knew them all. Ras I knew deep in the brain but it didn't come to me. The other three, no chance.

I knew exactly the same ones (plus Ajman). I also knew that one was starting with an F, so I typed "Fallujah" but that seems to be another Middle East city

I'm not sure why Gulf Arabs like to add those H's when they're not really pronounced like in Sharjah, Jeddah, Bahah, Fujairah, etc.

But then you don't have the H in other cities like Mecca (I know it can be spelt Makkah), Manama, Doha

The prompt 'Most-spoken Germanic languages' isn't very good. If it's geographic groups of seven, why isn't it actual groups, rather than 'top 7 ___'?

It is region in Serbia. By the valid resolution 1244 Kosovo and Metohiija is part of Serbia. Soon when Nato leave Serbia our people will come back to their homes, so there were no independence. Learn that.
