I am surprised because there is no Pretoria.

Pretoria is considered part of the Johannesburg urban area, so it appears along with Johannesburg as a single answer in the Biggest Cities in Africa quiz. Pretoria works as a type-in there though, so maybe it should work here too?

Happy USA Income Tax Day, and more importantly, Happy Ford Mustang Day! (Born on this date in 1964.)

Pretoria is within a few miles of Johannesburg, and Johannesburg is a lot more popular than Pretoria, so Pretoria doesn't get a lot of attention.

Curious what your rationale behind the color selection for each continent was, or was it random. I don't actually disagree with them for some reason.

Hey, can I ask Pretoria be accepted as a type-in for Johannesburg as they're both in the same metropolitan area and are frequently put together in African city quizzes? Thanks

That is like asking if you can include Baltimore instead of Washington, since by some definitions they are in the same metropolitan area. By every other definition, they are separate cities and are in no way considered the same 'city'.

I find it funny that the same amount of people get Auckland and Beijing, as one city is much more important than the other.
