I am trying to make a big .svg file with world islands and a corresponding excel file where island names are assigned to shapes. I have started with the big islands. With this you could then make 'local' island quizzes etc. Does anyone want to help or have suggestions?!

There seem to be a lot of islands coloured yellow which aren't included - e.g, South Georgia, West Falkland

Yeah I kept trying to put in Trinidad, Long Island, etc. until I gave up to try and see what their actual name was, and I saw they stayed yellow.

Correct and incorrect! I think they used the Greenlandic name for the island, which is also the city's name. It tells you that on the Wiki page for the island if you check :}

I agree about non-answers being yellow - very confusing. Having said that, this quiz absolutely rocks and has been duly nominated and spotlighted. More power to the Scambigol!

Yeah the non-answers being yellow make this quiz kinda stupid. It's not so fun to try to remember the names of all the little islands with no idea whether it's going to be big enough to get accepted. If only super teeny islands were also yellow, I could figure it out, but there are plenty of islands between 101-150 largest that are yellow here.

Guessing which islands is fine, guessing their names is fine, doing both at the same time is not so fine. If there were some way to like, click an island and reveal whether it were an answer, even that would work, but I don't know any way to do that.
