Some omissions though - e.g. wellington is by far the largest W in Oceania
Also, the correct word for your comment is "accepted" and not "expected". :)
It's probably just me, but I found distinguishing the colours quite hard. I think the yellow backgrounds makes it hard to see the colours as they actually are...maybe it would be easier if the dot outlines were white rather than black? Just a thought.
When it comes to cities with yellow dot, the shade of yellow in quiz is comparatively pretty brighter to that of countries, and once you have named a good amount of cities and only about half of cities are left on map, they are easier to notice. For a white stroke for dots, both countries and water bodies have a lighter shade of thier respective colors, which means white would blend better making the dots a bit harder to notice. Thanks for your feedback :)
Is it possible to add info to the dots, so when I hover with the mouse over one, it shows me the letter it stands for? E.g. like in the Countries of the world quiz (and not only), where you see the name of the countries you've already got in the bottom left corner when you go with the mouse over them.
The population figured you gave were of city proper, but like almost every other *featured* quiz here, this quiz uses urban area. That webpage only contains population of cities over 1 mil, so for smaller cities, I had to dig deeper into site, like individual country pages.
It is just odd when you cite a source and then redefine its content/notation. But really: I don't want to open that barrel. Just ignore my comment. :-)
Rio : Already in the quiz
Buenos Aires > Belo Horizonte
London > Lisbon
Moscow > Milan
Jokes aside, the city that you mentioned is clearly a part of Cagliari's urban area, so it's excluded.
I live near there
In Clovis, actually
But it's not well known, and Clovis gets associated with the one in New Mexico sometimes
Fun quiz, a real brain workout - thanks!
I had two left for North America: "U" and "Z". Somehow I pulled "Uruapan" from the far reaches of my brain, and then, aha!... "Zacatecas". Nope... "Zamora", whose existence had heretofore escaped me. (I checked... it's larger than Zacatecas.)
If only it had been city proper... I'da zapped 'em with "Zapopan". :)
