Is playing geography quizzes an EC’s?
2023.06.06 14:09 mameiyu Is playing geography quizzes an EC’s?
I am really interested in playing geo quizzes on jetpunk, sporcle and seterra. I spend around 6 hours a week on them and I could remember all countries’ names, capitals, flags, locations on map, and shapes. However, I have never participated in any quiz bowl. Would it be an interesting ecs on my profile?

| || | submitted by angryfishstick1 to geoguessr [link] [comments]
A few days ago, I logged onto Seterra after a while, and I've noticed quite a few bugs that have remained since.
- This only happens with European quizzes as far as I can tell, but if I go to, say, European Union: Countries (before brexit) and then click on Europe: Countries, the countries which were dark green in the EU quiz are now dark green in the default Europe quiz. You can still click on them, but they don't turn white when you do. Here's what it looks like:
(on a more minor note, the numbers on the high scores are a bit off-center up and to the right now, which is slightly annoying xd)
- Sound doesn't work anymore.
- Whenever I click a country, all of the borders get thinner and then appear thicker again.
- Adding "?fastclick=1," "?hoverclick=1," or "?shownext=1" to the link doesn't do anything anymore. Fastclick is essential for speedrunning, so I think this should be fixed as soon as possible. I'd personally like it added as an option shown on the website.
- Some of my personal high scores have random percentages on them. For instance, I've gotten 100% of the Spain: Provinces quiz (the 100% score is still shown on the leaderboard when I go to the quiz), and while I've never gotten a score of 36% on the quiz, it shows my top score as 36% here:
- The Europe: Countries quiz without Kosovo has been added to the English version of Seterra, but it's not labeled differently from the normal Europe: Countries quiz. Same goes with the Asia: Countries quizzes with and without Palestine.
- Georgia and Armenia are colored black rather than dark green in the Europe: Countries quiz without Kosovo.
- The pdf hyperlink was removed in the descriptions of quizzes. Currently, it still says, "If you want to practice online, download our printable maps of in pdf format."
I'd also like to ask about the removal of some features, as I'm not sure whether they were intentional and/or temporary or not.
- If you're on a quiz related to Europe, for example, there used to be a button at the bottom next to the other quizzes leading to "more quizzes about Europe." And under those quizzes, there were also brief sections of other continents, each with the "view all quizzes" button. They've all been removed, and now it's harder to navigate the site.
- On your personal scores, you used to be able to hover over each score to see the time, date, and game mode you completed it in, but it doesn't show up with anything now if you hover over them. You were also able to see the details if you hovered over the high score next to the quiz, as shown with the Spain: Provinces quiz in my earlier screenshot.
- The option to create custom quizzes has been replaced with a button to "create challenge," which only allows you to create a private game of that quiz with a private leaderboard, and removes the ability to add locations and exclude countries. You're also only allowed to select one game mode (Pin or Type) for people to play.
- You used to be able to click on a country/state/province/whatever at the top of the quiz to get to its Wikipedia page, but this feature been removed.
In addition, I'm not a developer of anything and can't say much, and I'm sure that there were valid reasons for removing the other game modes. However, I really, really
just want to say that the place the labels
and pin (hard)
modes were very
helpful for me learning geography on Seterra. Type (easy)
, place the flags
, and the no borders modes weren't as "helpful," but they were still really fun parts of Seterra and were of far better quality than similar quizzes on other sites. Seterra is possibly the best geography site out there, and it's really sad to see these features go. Also, this article
should be removed as soon as possible.
A couple last things about the new look of the site: When I click on something correctly, the label shows up as green, and if I click on something incorrectly, it shows up as white. I personally dislike it, especially since the color of the label matches when you miss and it comes up yellow, orange, or red. But, I will say that I like how the size of the font for quizzes is smaller, and how the website overall just looks cleaner now. (The United States and North America sections of Seterra haven't been updated yet, so if anyone wants to compare, check it out.)
2023.05.30 15:19 snowskin_lotus place the flag app/websites?
I used to use Seterra’s UN member states game for the drag the flag to the map, but i think they discontinued that and a couple other modes :(
Anyone have similar websites?

2023.05.14 16:00 LeoPond_ Looking for open-source maps for anki deck
Hi folks, I've been building an anki deck about geography stuff.
It basically contains flags, capitals and maps for countries and country subdivisions (don't have all them, but I'm getting there).
I've been making my own cards, by using screenshots from Seterra for the map part. I'd like to make that deck public now, but Seterra doesn't allow use of their content, so I'm looking for an open-source alternative. Do you know where I could find that ? I'd like to have every map in the same graphic style if possible.

2023.05.07 10:42 bladeshot I made United Nations Member States quiz easier to play
As Geoguessr recently purchased Seterra I figured I'd post this here.
When playing UN Countries Quiz you constantly need to zoom in and zoom out, so I made this userstyle so the map will take the whole screen.
No more need to zoom in and zoom out!
You can check it out here: https://userstyles.world/style/9727/seterra-un-wide-map

2023.04.23 00:42 paranapine Remember to check out Seterra!
GeoGuessr owns Seterra ("The Ultimate Map Quiz Site"), a website that has lots of map quizzes. https://www.geoguessr.com/seterra
If you have a GeoGuessr pro membership, it automatically transfers to a Seterra pro membership when you login.
I enjoy playing quizzes on Seterra a lot and I really hope Seterra will become a part of the actual GeoGuessr website in the future.

2023.03.28 14:37 Acceptable-Gift-763 had to label as many countries as possible for geography class today. Jacks videos helped me learn all of them
2023.03.10 21:02 Eric_Of_Atreides I created a map with 280+ countries and territories
This is a very difficult map that I created with the 220+ countries and territoires map as a basis. It includes many islands with special administrative status, most overseas territories, some island-regions (such as Tasmania or Hainan) and a few exclaves. I hope you’ll have as much fun with it as I had making it. Don’t hesitate giving me suggestions about territories I could add.

2023.02.19 15:19 delloskill App Update
I use Seterra on my phone since it is more convenient, but the app hasn't been updated since forever. Even if there aren't most of the maps, would be possible to have all the provincial level maps in the future? Or is the app abandonware?

2022.12.21 23:04 Gros-seum ?shownext=1 doesn’t work
Hey, I found out on the Seterra tricks article available on the website that there is a URL code that makes appear the next question so you can be faster at clicking on the map. In the article, it says that you only have to had : « ?shownext=1 » to the URL of the game’s page. As an example, a modified link of the African countries is given and it works perfectly but whenever I try to do the same with another page, I only lands on a « oops something went wrong » page. If you guys have any hints on how to make this work, it would be great.

2022.12.21 14:36 mdoktor is there anything like Seterra for English and grammar?
Seterra is that website for learning geography there are hundreds of quizzes and fill-in-the-map games and I'm looking for something along the same lines to teach me punctuation and grammar. Or any website you know that can teach English writing and stance structure.

2022.10.30 08:18 Accomplished-Half101 Parallel (A story I wrote!)
People cross paths, becoming friends and maybe taking it further. By plan, they manage to talk to each other and enjoy each other’s company. Others seem to appear the opposite. One person may try to cross paths with the other person. They might try to start a conversation or ask for something, but no matter how hard they try, they will never cross paths.
They were parallel.
The bell rang, signaling the students that class was over and that 7th period would begin. Thursday seemed to move incredibly slowly. He walked out of his classroom, going to his next class, which was next door. The door was usually closed, as opposed to today, in which the door was open. He peeked in, checking if it was okay to go in.
“Can I come in?” he asked.
“Yeah, come on in,” his teacher Mr. Kyle said. He was tall, dark, and cared for his students. He gave fist bumps to his students every day as they walked in the door. “Yeah, buddy.”
“Hi,” the student said. His days felt repetitious, even though he was enjoying them. The exact schedule seemed to play out every day: wake up, shower, go to school, go home, do homework, eat, sleep, restart. Every day felt like it was the same as before. His days felt repetitious, even though he was enjoying them. The exact schedule seemed to play out every day: wake up, shower, go to school, go home, do homework, eat, sleep, restart. Every day felt like it was the same as before. He put his phone up in his pouch, number fifteen, sat in his chair, and waited. The class flooded in, and the usual dialogue.
“G’day, mate! Can I interest you in a bo’oh oh o’ wo’er?”
“Thank you, numbers one, three, four, six, seven, eight, twelve, thirteen, fifteen,” The assistant teacher continued listing off the numbered pouches with phones in them. Everyone quieted down, sitting in their seats as Mr. Kyle started the class.
“Alright, guys, so, as you can see, you need your computers for map practice. Thanks to you guys who already have it out,” Mr. Kyle said. Everyone who didn’t have their laptops took it out, opening Seterra. The boy scored one hundred percent the first time; he closed the tab and continued reading Heartstopper.
“Are you finished?” The assistant teacher asked, standing behind him.
“Yeah, I got one hundred the first time,” the boy said.
“Okay,” she walked away, looking for other students who were off task. Five minutes later, the timer rang; everyone looked up.
“Alright, everyone, put away your computers,” Mr. Kyle said, standing up from his chair and going to the whiteboard. “As you can see on the schedule, we’re going to play GeoGuessr.” He said. The class cheered; they weren’t working. The lights shut off as they decided which version of Latin America they wanted to play. “Alright, where do you guys think we are?”
“Look around for signs!” One of the students shouted. They looked around, seeing signs for directions to a park. The boy put his head down, closing his eyes. The door opened not long after, and a student stood in the doorway. He wore an olive green sweater. He had short, wavy, and unkempt hair.
“Are you our new transfer student?” Mr. Kyle asked. He nodded his head. “You can sit right there, next to Anthony.”
“Alright,” he walked over, put his bag down, and looked forward. Anthony looked at him, and his eyes widened.
“Oh, shit,” he whispered. He would have to sit with him for the rest of the year.
They were adjacent.
“Everyone, this is our new transfer student from Pasadena, Gabriel.” Mr. Kyle introduced Gabriel to the class. Everyone turned their heads, looking at him. Anthony looked next to him, studying his features. He was dark, had a rounder jawline, and appeared somewhat disinterested in the class. The rest went back to playing GeoGuessr. Anthony returned to wanting to sleep, pretending not to be intrigued by Gabriel. He glanced over at him, accidentally making eye contact. They stared at each other; Anthony wanted to say something. The words formulated in his head, and his heartbeat grew faster. Each passing moment made him feel more anxious. He tried forcing all the words out, but all that came out was a sigh.
“Dammit,” Anthony whispered, putting his head back in his elbows. “Why is it so fucking hard to talk?”
“Alright, guys, today, we’re going to be starting our new unit: Physical Geography of Latin America,” Mr. Kyle turned the lights back on. “We’re gonna be skimming over it, so please get your journals,” He said. The students stared at the board as Mr. Kyle taught. “Oh wait, Gabriel, do you have a journal?”
“Nah,” Gabriel shook his head.
“Alright,” Mr. Kyle went to one of his drawers and pulled out a red spiral notebook. “Here,” He handed the journal to the assistant teacher.
“You’re going to be taking notes in this. Make sure you write your name on it,” She said. Gabriel took out a permanent marker and wrote his name on it. He opened the notebook to its first page, writing down significant parts. Anthony glanced over at him, making eye contact with Gabriel again.
“What the hell?” Anthony looked away quickly. “Just say something!” He grew more frustrated with himself. He started drifting off into his thoughts, thinking of ways to start talking to him. The bell rang loudly, breaking his concentration. He packed up and ran out of the classroom, quickly walking to the middle school next to the high school. He started to wonder if he might break through his social anxiety. “Dammit…” Anthony groaned. He waited at the crosswalk for his younger brother, Adrien, who was in 8th grade. Gabriel lingered in his mind. His quietness intrigued Anthony. He felt compelled to talk to him and to try and start a conversation.
“Anthony!” Adrien yelled out.
“Adrien!” Anthony yelled back. They were brothers, but they were best friends despite the arguments. “Dude, mom’s already there,” Anthony said.
“Yeah, I know,” Adrien walked into the street. They talked as they walked to their mom, who was parked on the sidewalk next to the hospital. They put their bags in the trunk and went inside the car, Gabriel still on Anthony’s mind.
“Just say something,”
