I gave a 9 to 4 cities, and all the rest received 8.5 or less. By considering a range of marks, I believe you get a more accurate reading because you take into account the opinions of more people.

You could even do one by adding votes of 10, 9.5, 9, 8.5, and 8. No city is going to get 100% even with that range.

I would not be against that. Can you think of a quick algorithm to do the calculations?

Do you have the data in a spread sheet already? If not, it may be quicker just to count it. Only 25 cities + a few more would need to be done to make sure the actual 25 top vote getters are calculated.

I have to get to bed, but don't mind splitting it up with you. I could do all the odd numbered ones in your present ranking from #1 to #25, you could do #2 to #24. You could also do a few cities that you suspect are in the #26-#28 range just to make sure they don't bump up to a top 25.

I could forward my data to you tomorrow night. Are you interested in 10, 9.5, 9 OR 10, 9.5, 9, 8.5, 8? The first one might be too close to what you've already done. Who knows, one might end up with exactly the same ranking than your original regardless of which one is done.

Ah, yes, suggesting non-European origins is the biggest insult you could throw at a certain type of people... almost as bad as questioning a Latin man's masculinity.

That list is composed from Emporis's data which (as has been pointed out on here about a billion times) is as reliable as a promise of a bank vault full of Nigerian pounds...
