Maybe reset the scores, it seems that a lot have changed. Less Nazi’s and finally a cosmonaut 🙂 But also a terrible US president 🙁 haha
updated with current rankings.
Odd that Biblical fictional figures are treated as real people but Heracles isn’t. Heracles is every bit as historical as Moses.
i think this one always required numerals – maybe you are thinking of the ‘All’ quiz with 10K+ answers? adding those alternatives.
Oh, maybe that was it. Thanks.
should be good now.
Armstrong but no Gagarin?
Okay, I love this quiz and have played tons of times, and this isn’t exactly on it necessarily, but I’m starting to doubt MIT’s objectivity now that I realize Calvin (170) and Hobbes (165) are 5 people apart.
Glaring omissions? Yes, Jordan for sure… Lebron also… Diego Maradona and Cristiano Ronaldo… Schumacher fell off the list… I don’t think this list takes sports in high regard.
This list is much better now that it’s been revised, but I’d still say the most glaring omission would have to be Michael Jordan, right?
Not one jazz musician on the list that I could find.
louis armstrong was on
i did to the All quiz (where you name the full list) – if you have any on other quizzes that should be fixed just let me know in the comments for that quiz.
Please accept just ‘Buddha’. I may disagree with many of the people on this list (I think it’s way too heavy on ancient Europeans) but great quiz anyway.
We’re making history for 2000+ years so it’s only natural the prevalence of Europeans. On a side note… is this the first quiz to reach 300 recorded results? You now need 74 guesses to enter the scoreboard.
Sorry for the formatting of the above comment.
fixing these – thanks.
Great! Three others I forgot to mention: “Leonidas I” is required instead of just “Leonidas”, I think “Amenhotep IV” should probably be accepted for “Akhenaten”, and “Octavian” should probably be accepted for “Augustus”.
got em, thx.
A couple more: I think “Nebuchadrezzar” is a typo for “Nebuchadnezzar”, “Starkey” should probably be accepted for Ringo Starr (Richard Starkey), and “Charles Dodgson” and “Samuel Clemens” (their real names) should be accepted for the pen names “Lewis Carroll” and “Mark Twain”.
got the new ones too, thx.
Sorry, didn’t see it. My bad
Great quiz. Perhaps accept Al-Ghazzali with one Z has that seems to be the English standard?
I guessed Bieber, and was correct. I need to shower.
Is Queen Victoria really missing in this list? Or did I something wrong?
(Salk and Van Leeuwenhoek also missing, saving millions of lives by their discoveries isn’t enough to make list, so much for the general interest in medical sciences)
she missed by a couple hundred.
Loved seeing “pirate completed”.
This is a fascinating quiz – could you maybe post a version with no time limit so we can play through at our leisure and have time to look people up and read about them while playing? Maybe one with no leaderboard.
You should accept Bruegel as an alternative spelling for Brueghel.
The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant via the categorical imperative is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.
