All 1M Cities on the Borderless World Map with hints on Dots by typing Countries

There are 552 cities with at least 1 million inhabitants. Each dot consists of two parts:
1) the inner one is highlighted by typing the name of the country or of the city: if you move the mouse over it you can see some of the letters of the answer you have to type!
2) the outer one is highlighted by typing the name of the city
Urban Area population according to (reference date 01.01.2017)
Dot size depends on population
Blue dots indicate capital cities (dark blue agglomerations containing them), red dots indicate urban agglomerations 'without main city'
Hints on dots: you are shown the 2nd letter of the country's largest city and the first (n-1) letters of the nth largest one - except you are never revealed the last letter

I think I'm happy enough with that to never try this quiz again. Cool, but soooo time consuming!

I hammered out 846, fraying my nerves in the meantime, and that only equals or beats 77%?? Wow.

Not a fan of the hints. Type Indianapolis and you wind up with apolis. Type Caracas and you wind up with acas.

Not sure you got the clues correctly. If you have already answered a city you don't have to worry about its clue.

Best strategy is to type the name of the COUNTRY the city is in. That will then give you the starting letter(s) to all the cities in that country.

If you are hovering your mouse over the cities after the quiz is finished things might get a little confusing because of the way the quiz is made. Don't read anything into that.

One of the answers is shown as _'__________. What in the world is this? And how did 60% of the people get it right?

And to add to this, it's the capital of Chad. So for those of us who know all the countries and capitals (which is a fairly large portion of the people on JetPunk), this is a really easy get.

Wow... what a quiz! It took me three tries, but by the third time I could name all but 20 of the cities without Googling any of them thanks to the hints.

A couple of notes: if you type "addis", Addis Ababa lights up but not the hint dot in the middle - you have to type "addis ababa" for that to work. Also, as you type "Riyadh", it recognizes "riyad" as the correct answer, but only for the hint dot, and not for the actual answer.

^ This, and there are more than just these two. It would be great if you could go through and make sure that all the type-ins that work for capitals actually get *both* rings, especially for countries where the capital is the only city large enough.

Praha is the other one I have noticed a few times. Also could use KSA as a type-in.

Epic. I love the fact that the hints help you not only guess cities, but learn them as well. Great job.
