Sorry, this is an epic fail of a quiz.

Rhosllanerchrugog is a small, former mining village in Wrexham county borough. There are other epic mistakes but that’s the biggest one.

Your source clearly states the top 10 towns and cities and some of them aren’t in this quiz

Hi

As a Welshman, I’ve reacted rudely to your quiz. I follow your quizzes and enjoy them.

But this one is wide of the mark.

I do appreciate the effort though

Right, I've gone back and fixed up the quiz. My source from before was still citypopulation.de but they built up populations in a questionable way, (not wrong, just strange). I've gone back and checked the figures and this new updated version should be as accurate as possible. List is based off here. Apologies.

That’s much more like it.

Not sure most would get Buckley to honest as the actual place is smaller but the sprawl makes it bigger

Thanks for your efforts, much appreciated

Don't mention it. Always gotta keep my quizzes accurate as possible, it's kind of hard for me to judge these things having never been to Wales (yet)

I think the name of the quiz needs a tweak: calling all these places 'cities' is technically incorrect (there's a definition of what constitutes a city in the UK and most of these places do not meet that definition. Also, if it were just official cities, then some are missed off).

It's cities and towns for this quiz, I still need to fix a few names for my UK-based quizzes. Thanks for the heads up :)
