Has it been approved? I’ve just done the quiz and I couldn’t tell where the penultimate answer was supposed to be on the map. I got it eventually by guessing potential answers. Is an arrow pointing to it possible or does that ruin your map?

Yes, it’s around twice as large. I’ll try to add an arrow.
