6/26/2017 – Hello Everyone! Yes, I am alive! I have been doing full-time work not allowing me to update the site (this site takes a bit of work to keep going so I figured best to just leave it alone than do mediocre work on it) but am looking soon into new opportunities that will allow the site to expand and grow – not overnight but perhaps within a couple months. Thanks for continuing to visit and hopefully some good news will be on the way! – Darin

    You have it as “next” to skip capital rather than city btw.

    I’ve found several bugs on this quiz… both Manchester and Leeds have only 6 cities. Newcastle, Nottingham, Coventry, Exeter, Hull and Aberdeen doesn’t seem to accept any nearby cities. I think the data for this one might’ve messed up somewhere.

      i’m showing Leeds with 7 cities, and Manchester with 6…also those cities seem correct – are you seeing that it is requiring the cities you are guessing to be the 10 closest that are *larger*?

        Ah! Larger! Well, I guess that explains everything. Sorry for the confusion.
