Hey, uhm you said largest cities in the Macaronesian Islands, I am Cape Verdean and I go to Sao Vicente every summer to visit family. Sao Vicente is not a city, its the island. Mindelo is the city.

I see what happens here, I'm not from Cabo Verde (and I've never been there), but according to Wikipedia, Mindelo as a city belongs to the municipality of São Vicente (which encompasses the entire island). That's the reason I don't count it as an independent entity.

The same can be said of other large entities in the Canaries (where I'm from), such as Los Cristianos, Vecindario, Corralejo, etc., which won't appear in the quiz as they belong to the municipalities of Arona, Santa Lucía and La Oliva respectively; even though I still accept the former names as type-ins.

I will add a caveat to clarify this and Mindelo is now accepted as a type-in.
