Five stars from me, amazing work. I spent few hours trying to solve as much as I can (973) and I stoped only because I am tired. I missed some important cities like Guadalajara, Kano, Busan... but I know now wher Kulhudhuffushi is :)

Oh, and there are two circles that show up for some cities after quiz ends. Green in the middle and red around it. So I can see for example Lo_ and Londrina for the city I missed. Probably it is the only solution for this quiz, but I say this just in case you did not noticed it.

hi, thanks for your comments! I am not sure what you mean about Londrina - wasn't the 'green in the middle' highlighted by typing some nearby big city?

Brilliant quiz - though I spend too much time on it! :) Something strange is that it never recognises that I've taken the quiz before. It shows I have 1 point and tells me I'm not logged in - though it shows my login name at the top. Rather irritating. Don't know if it's a bug in the site as it often takes points off me that I have earned. :(

Found it much easier to guess small cities in the anglosphere than elsewhere, probably because I am used to the kind of endings that cities in the anglosphere might have, like ville or ia, while I have no clue what to guess for an ending in languages I do not know.
