it appears easy to move my country up the table. All I need to do is to encourage BlooMoo and others to play the game for their country ;)

EDIT: yes, the method above is the best approach, and after having a go myself I will have to work harder at it

My colleague is really miffed.He can't represent his country.Sri Lanka according to a geography quiz doesn't exist.:confused:

14th Oct 2004, 10:55
Oh, I got that one wrong as well then...:(

14th Oct 2004, 10:59
The UK is in 104th! behind the US and France! Come on guys we cant have that!

14th Oct 2004, 11:15
60%, pushing UK's score up by 0.01% :ok:

Should really have known where Tajikistan was!! :confused:

I think Feeton has it, until I get better I might have to represent another country...:ok:

You're lucky, c=bert, I decreased mine by 0.00%!

This could get fairly addictive, but I don't think much of the interface, grumble grizzle moan complain rhubarb rhubarb....

and where do you get the right answers? I still have no idea where Palau is :confused:

Unfortunately, you have decreased your country's score by 0.01% :{ :{

I got 7/10 which must have increased the UK's pathetic overall score by something but I was booted off the computer before finding out just how much. The three I got wrong were Krygistan (sp?), though I did get Tagikstan (sp?) right, Palau, which I think is a made up name and some other place I can't remember.

Apparently the leading country is Jamtland with 100%. Jamtland? Oh come on, they are surely making it up...

I'm afraid my appalling 2/10 has dropped the UK to a new low.
My geography teacher was right, all those years ago !

14th Oct 2004, 16:30
I probably should have known where Canada is :(

14th Oct 2004, 16:50
my pc crashed after just the first couple of questions, so I probably reduced the score for the UK

tall and tasty
14th Oct 2004, 17:08
Gosh went up by 0.02% suppose going in thr right direction!


14th Oct 2004, 19:03
Congrats, you have increased your country's score by 0.03%

I may be accusing the nice people at 'geographyolympics' unfairly - and my apologies if I am, but after a little dabble last night my laptop slowed to a slow crawl and I have spent this morning removing adware.

:suspect: :{

surely not

I thought I was good at Geograhy until I took this test :{ :{

I am now going to enter as other countries :D
