At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.
By the way, I doubted you when I got Romania and Chad's flags back to back, and they looked the same - I thought you had made a mistake in the deck. Turns out they pretty much do have the same flag! Never doubting you again :)
It would be nice to have pronunciation guides and a bit of history or at least a Wikipedia link. Flags are their own cards which makes it hard to associate with the territory.
These are not countries:
These are countries:
I do not have the power to change how taiwanese and other countries'people think of us,but I think at least Taiwan Island belongs to China.
No aggressive intention,it's just my feeling…
"Who cares?" People who care about the state and completeness of their knowledge and not how shiny or pretty something is, that's who. It's not good enough to simply omit the entirety of the Pacific island nations. Fully-fledged sovereign nations, not dependencies or territories.
Paired with all the other inconsistencies and dated information, spellings etc., that have already been mentioned this deck is lucky to be worth 3 stars, and it's only because of those oh-so-pretty maps. They are genuinely of high quality, as well as the flags and are the only reason I bother spending a good 3 hours sorting through and modifying.
Also, there was no card that used the Capital field, so you will have to make one yourself if you want to learn (not difficult of course).
was wondering could you (or anyone able) help with something?
I'm new on anki and despite trying to grasp the cards/fields/notes malarky am not sure how I can learn/review the information in the 'capitals' field.
Ideally, I'd set things up so I can learn/review each country and its capital indepently of the flags and maps, because I've learned these now but more or less and completely starting from scratch with capital cities.
help would be great.
thanks again for this deck.
Very high quality deck but incomplete. I've made the following corrections to my version so far: changed 'Republic of Congo' to 'Republic of the Congo', updated Burma to Myanmar, changed 'South African Republic' to 'South Africa' (official name is Republic of South Africa). The Ulster Banner is no longer the flag of Northern Ireland and, arguably, should not have been included. I replaced mine with Saint Patrick's Saltire. Also, some of the maps of smaller countries/territories are too zoomed out to be able to see/learn where they are.
The deck is missing the following sovereign states: Fiji, Kiribati, Mauritius, Naura, Samao, Soloman Islands, South Sudan, Tonga, Tuvalu, Vanuata, United Kingdom.
Inconsistently, some territories or states with voluntary associations are included in the deck (like French Guiana) and some are not. The following are missing: Cook Islands, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Palau, Réunion, South Sudan, Saint Helena, Clipperton Island, Anguilla, Aruba, Bonaire-Sint Eustatius-Saba, British Virgin Islands, Curaçao, Guadeloupe, Martinique, Montserrat, Puerto Rico, Saint-Barthélemy, Saint Martin/Sint Maarten, Turks and Caicos, US Virgin Islands, Falkland Islands, Åland Islands, Faroe Islands, Channel Islands.
I added the following disputed territories to my deck: Abkhazia (claimed by Georgia) Nagorno-Karabakh (claimed by Azerbaijan), Northern Cyprus (claimed by Cyprus), Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (claimed by Morocco), Somaliland (claimed by Somalia), South Ossetia (claimed by Georgia), Transnistria (claimed by Moldova).
Some smaller countries might be missing, but the illustrations in this deck are second to none.
This deck is incredible. Maybe it misses 10 countries, who cares? The quality of maps is insane.
Thanks for the excellent upload!
As has already been suggested, this is a fantastic geography deck, certainly the most beautiful, but those last countries, that have been listed, need to be added to the deck.
