Looking for Map Posting February 20, 2008 4:17 PM   Subscribe

Earlier today, there was a posting about geographical knowledge, with links to an online series of tests. The posting seems to have disappeared. I can't find it in the archives or through a site search. Can someone point me to the link or the site with the tests? I'm having no luck finding the one I want through Google. Thanks.

It was a triple post. When something disappears from the front page, get thee to Deleted Thread or break out one of the deleted thread detection scripts and BAM! Satisfaction.

Ah, thanks so much. I couldn't find it no matter what I did. Didn't know about the deletedthread site. Good grief, I'm behind. Thanks!

If you remember about where it was on the front page, you can also look at the numbers of the threads around where it was, click on one of those threads and then change the number that's at the end of the URL until you find the one you're after.

And here's the link, too, because I bookmarked the site: traveler's IQ geography quiz.

I had no idea Deleted Thread existed! Is it linked somewhere on MeFi?

Just periodically, in this kind of thread. I'm sure it's linked on the wiki too. It's not an official site project, just something that puke & cry runs on his own time.

Which brings up Dumb and Dumberer.

Also take a look at the super secret, lofi.mefi. It also has all the postings, even deleted ones

Cortex the deleted threads are worthwhile just for your pithy comments. Now I don't feel so bad when I post one of my usual clangers and check back to see it missing.

Hazarh! to the mod I say!

Yes, Middle Eastern Textiles to the mod.

You got a problem with that tellurian?

Not at all. I'm right behind you. Very much so [self link]. Thank you for the inspiration.
