March 30th Update:

Nearly two months after release, the SVG has been completely redone to better accompany population standards on JetPunk, along with the population column. Germany and Russia are now a more humble shade of grey, and the city-stroke has been reduced by half.

Accept Kharkhiv for Kharkiv. It usually is. Great Quiz though, and the SVG is nice. You just got a subscriber

Also make sure to turn the left side of the Bosphorus Strait Yellow in this quiz, and write a caveat saying the city on two continents is in Europe in this quiz. Thanks! Sorry for being a Nitpick.

Cute, but city proper, urban and metro area numbers are a bit mixed up. Paris is metro but not Amsterdam?

I also found this strange. I knew from the start that this site was likely inaccurate, but it was the only source I could find other than wikipedia. In fact, I was hoping the whole time that Amsterdam would come up because there would definitely be complaints. I thought about adding a caveat saying the data might be inaccurate, but it slipped my mind. Thanks for the reminder!

I'd recommend citypopulation.de.

It has accurate data but the sorting of it is the most annoying thing ever. These cities aren't too far off.

Just click on the Population bar of the table, and it will sort it by population

Why are Germany & Russia greyed out? Shouldn't the cities be greyed out? If there are no cities in those countries that fit the criteria, then it only makes sense to grey out the other ones as well, such as Finland (which has no cities)

Read the instructions. Lol. The whole point is Germany and Russia are excluded.
