Please stop accepting Pittsburgh without the 'h' at the end. In every quiz, the next thing I type after Pittsburgh is always misspelled with an extra h at the beginning.
Jun 1, 2012
I second this!
Jun 1, 2012
I'd love to but then I'd have to deal with even more comments saying "I typed Pittsburg" and it didn't work!
Jun 2, 2012
The way to deal with people saying "I typed Pittsburg and it didn't work" is to say, "That's because you misspelled Pittsburgh."

Quizmaster accepts a TON of misspellings, why should they eliminate this one?
May 25, 2015
How about a user poll? Could be an interesting result! As for Pittsburgh, has anyone anywhere ever spelt it without the "h"?
Jun 12, 2015
You could also add an acceptable spelling of 'hplano' and 'hprovidence.' Seems like that'd catch a lot of the issues of people spelling it right.

Jerry, there is Pittsburg Alabama, Pittsburg Arkansas, Pittsburg California, Pittsburg Colorado, Pittsburg Florida, Pittsburg Georgia, Pittsburg Landing Idaho, Pittsburg Illinois, Pittsburg Indiana, Pittsburg Iowa, Pittsburg Kansas, Pittsburg Kentucky, Pittsburg Michigan, Pittsburg Mississippi, Pittsburg Missouri, Pittsburg Nebraska, Pittsburg Nevada, Pittsburg New Hampshire, Pittsburg New Mexico, Pittsburg North Carolina, Pittsburg Oklahoma, Pittsburg Oregon, West Pittsburg Pennsylvania, Pittsburg South Carolina, Pittsburg Landing Tennessee, South Pittsburg Tennessee, Pittsburg Texas, and Pittsburg Utah. Also, as a side note, Pittsburgh was actually spelled Pittsburg until 1911.

plattitude: today, I typed hphoenix ^^.
Aug 23, 2015
I'll vote for requiring the addition of the "h" to Pittsburgh if everyone here will agree to pronounce the last syllable the same as in Edinburgh.
Aug 25, 2015
LOL the things people complain about! I see a lot of posts for requests to accept certain spellings. I think this is the first one I've seen asking to reject one.

After you type in Pittsburg you should see that Pittsburgh comes up. Either you guys get paranoid over such small details, have OCD, or should probably learn how to type without looking at your keyboard. Trust me, it's not too hard. @Jerry928 . A poll sounds like a nice idea, but, can't you see, everyone's gonna choose the Pittsburgh option, with an H. @Quizmaster . Has anyone ever mentioned that to you? I'm not sure why anyone would type in Pittsburg, anyway. @buck1017 . Even if the spelling was Pittsburg until 1911, no one should be spelling it that way. Why would there even be an 104 year old (no, older, cause you have to add the number of years it took them to find JetPunk!) playing this site? Seriously, that's just unrealistic. Also, none of those towns/cities you've mentioned even qualify, and are totally unrelated to the subject. Do the spellings of many towns/cities in other states have to impact the way that Pennsylvania spells their Pittsburgh? No.

^Also have to factor in when computers where even invented

Just a correction to the point about Pittsburgh being spelled without the 'H' until 1911: The city was founded as Pittsburgh, and remained spelt that way until in 1890 when the US Board on Geographic Names decided to remove the 'H' from all cities ending in -burgh. So, yes, it spent 21 years misspelled, but it had an 'H' at the end from the beginning.

what about panama city florida
Jun 18, 2013
what about look it up

Would still be too small to get onto this list if it doubled its size.
May 1, 2018
I wish, since I live in PCB, its only 38,000 so it would take a very long list for it to be on here.
Aug 21, 2014
Sigh. Confused again when the quiz did not take "hplano". (see above)
Apr 14, 2015
Palo Alto, CA?
Jun 1, 2015
Only about 65,000 people. But it is annoying as a city the size of Philadelphia.
May 18, 2016
No city of any size could be as annoying as Philadelphia.

I go to BYU and I am so glad that they put that as the hint for Provo
Aug 23, 2015
I'll accept requiring the H in Pittsburgh, but I also want the required second N in Tallinn. ;)
Aug 24, 2015
or the second "a" in Sanaa
Sep 26, 2016
Or the h in Riyadh.

Interesting the two cites here named after other cities are both larger than their namesake.
Nov 18, 2015
And I'd never heard of either one of them even though we had children living in Arizona and Texas and visited them quite often. Suburbs often bring me down on these quizzes.
Jun 20, 2017
The TX Pasadena is actually older than the CA Pasadena, and is the home to booming industry. No wonder it's bigger.
Mar 12, 2016
I'm surprised that Pensacola isn't on this list

As a person from Plano, and a lover of Dr. Pepper, I know for a fact that the soda has nothing to do with my city. Dr. Pepper was invented in Waco, Dr. Pepper "Dublin" was invented in Dublin, TX, and the Dr. Pepper museum is also in Waco.
Jul 17, 2016
I second that. As a Texan that had to sit through a semester of Texas HIstory class, I know for a fact Dr. Pepper mostly has to do with Dublin, not Plano.
Jun 20, 2017
What they said.^^
Oct 4, 2017
Dr Pepper is bottled in Plano

I disagree with Pembroke Pines and Pompano Beach being categorized as suburbs of Miami. People who only know them by reading Wikipedia would think this but anyone from South Florida would never categorize them that way. Maybe the clue should be "West of Ft. Lauderdale" and "North of Ft. Lauderdale"
Mar 26, 2018
I was very surprised to see Pompano in relation to Miami. Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood are in between, and as you mentioned Fort Lauderdale could easily have been utilized for a more accurate clue. Of course my surprise may have been from me trying multiple "P" locations withing Miami proper to no avail. Living in Palmetto Bay, next to Pinecrest, one might become confused :P
