7/26/2017 – Hi again – I’m looking to hopefully by the end of August begin redoing the site with a fresh look and new features, hopefully to be done sometime before the end of September. This includes a new design, appearance, scorekeeping (hopefully with live leaderboards) and more. Keep an eye out! Also I will be removing the Flash quizzes and geography quizzes that aren’t using Google Maps by then (remaking some of them after the remodel) to make the site more clean and organized.

    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.
