Kilauea is not the tallest mountain from base to tip - Mauna Loa is.

Kosciuszko is definitely not the largest mountain in Oceania - Mount Wilhelm in Papua New Guinea and Mount Cook in New Zealand are both much much higher.

Please check your spelling for the Australian mountain.

Also in the directions you state that "Mount" or "Mt" is not necessary yet the Hawaii answer is not accepted without the Hawaiian word for mountain.

thanks for the comments everybody! I fixed all the errors found so far. Kosciuszko is now spelled right and Kea is accepted for Mauna Kea. If you see anything else wrong, please comment and I'll make the improvements as soon as I see it.
