Pretty hard to see the difference between Belize City and Belmopan even when clicking on the map. I guess there might be a few pixels.

At the time of making this map, I did not know how to make "zoomable-circles". Perhaps I should fix this.

I couldn't tell which one it might be, but was kind of glad it was Belize City, which is the older and more populous town. It's good not to always default to capitals.

Nice quiz, but - probably nitpicking - it would have been better to include well-known Reykjavik instead of Nuuk.

But Iceland is not considered part of North America; it's in Europe. Nuuk is on Greenland.

I gives Atlanta when you type Memphis. That must be a mistake...

I think @Jiaozira was being generous, but looking at that dot, it's clearly Atlanta, so I removed Memphis as an acceptable type-in.

hm... so there is more than one city in Belize. Who knew?

Also, yeah, Santiago should probably be accepted. and maybe even Belize for Belize City. I would have actually gotten it in that case as I was randomly typing in things.

There are even more than just one: http://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/149667/belize-cities-by-map

Fun fact: Belize city was actually the former capital of Belize(British Honduras as it was known back then) until a hurricane hit the coastal city in 1961. The government moved it to Belmopan after the event. More here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belize_City

Was reading an article about how some countries have changed their capitals to other places. Learned that, and that Brazil's former capital was Rio de Janeiro up until 1960, I think.

That is correct. Brasília was created by the Brazilian president at the time, Juscelino Kubitscheck.

I don't know this about Belize City - do people there ever just call it Belize? You cite New York, but you can't just say "Kansas" for Kansas City, or "Oklahoma" for Oklahoma City.

Saint Paul for Minneapolis, Jefferson City for Saint Louis, San Jose for San Francisco, Springfield for Saint Louis, San Jose del Cabo for Cabo San Lucas, Lapaz for Cabo San Lucas... but you forgot to accept "^NORTHAMERICANCITY" for every single one!

Hawaii can be included in North America for political reasons (continents are almost completely arbirtrary after all). I do want to fix Greenland's colour one day, but there are many other edits I can make to improve my other quizzes, so it is very low on any sort of priority list.

Hailfax isn't a spelling issue, it's a not knowing the answer issue because you're removing an entire syllable. You wouldn't accept Pairs for Paris, right?

I think he's ornery that Nuuk is in the category "Other Countries" because it's located in Greenland? But Denmark... Denmark is an "Other Country". Oh boy, you better believe that Denmark is an "Other Country".

Sorry to nitpick, but the caveat seems to be grammatically incorrect. It should be "on the contrary" or "conversely" instead of "contrary".

The second caveat for this quiz squanders the opportunity to use the rare, yet high value phrase "au contraire".
