Absolutely loved the quiz, but surprised by Pittsburg not being accepted. (I'm from PA, so I know it's spelled with an h, but threw me off for a minute.)
+1
Level 69
Aug 26, 2019
Interestingly, this wasn't my choice. Quizmaster changed the default typein, so now in any featured quiz Pittsburg is no longer accepted. Several others were changed as well, like the one for Phnom Penh.

Aug 26, 2019
A lot of people whined about Pittsburgh being accepted without the "h" so I changed it. Now people can whine the other way around :)

Aug 26, 2019
There seems to be an error with the cities that share names. They seem to be accepted just fine (at least the ones that I got), but they all show the same name when hovering over them. For example, all of the Springfields are listed as "Springfield, IL," all of the Portlands are listed as "Portland, OR," etc.
+1
Level 69
Aug 26, 2019
Ah, I see what I did wrong. All of the dots called Springfield (as well as all other duplicate names) have the same ID on the map, meaning they all show as the same city. Unfortunately, I'm unable to work on the map at the moment because I don't have access to a computer, so hopefully Quizmaster will be able to fix it in the mean time.

Level 74
Aug 27, 2019
Really cool quiz. One grump, and nothing to do with your quiz-setting because you're only posting what is declared by the census people, is that "Gettysburg" appearing here is ridiculous - it only has 8000 people. The Gettysburg MSA is the whole of Adams County, a county rural in flavour with a zillion villages and small towns. The same goes for California, Maryland with just 12,000 people, whose MSA comprises the entire county in which it is situated.
+2
Level 69
Aug 27, 2019
I agree, some of these are absolutely ridiculous. However, with the system the Census Bureau uses sometimes there's no way to get around it. Because their measurement system uses counties, you end up with some really weird boundaries, like Johnstown, a suburb of Loveland, being included in the Greeley MSA, even though Greeley is over an hour away (just to use an example from my area). You can read more about it here. (My first feature, might as well do some shameless self advertising, right?)

Midland, MI is unlabeled and cannot be solved. Gainesville, FL shows for Athens, GA. Meanwhile, Athens, GA shows west of Atlanta (probably supposed to be Carrollton, GA). Macon, GA also appears twice: where it's supposed to be and then just east of Atlanta.

This is a MASSIVE quiz, so thank you for this undertaking. I'm assuming this will take several republishings (:, but a couple things - Lafayette, IN is labeled as Lafayette, LA, while the one in LA is labeled correctly. There are two metros labeled Harrisonburg in Virginia. I'm assuming the second one (a little to the south) is Staunton. Also, Bloomington, IN is labeled as IL.

Great quiz! I'm glad to see that this idea got published. There were just a couple issues that I saw. There appear to be 2 Macon, GAs (I think the northern one is Athens) and 2 Harrisonburg, VAs (western one is Staunton). If it would help, I can send you some of my data on this to confirm everything. Thank you for making a much nicer version of this quiz!

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! It's always great to get a compliment from our Lord mathandcheese. I'm working on the errors, those seem to be the only ones remaining.

Challenging! Only came away with 1 point, but I quit with eight minutes left. Highest guessed one that I missed was San Diego. Lowest guessed one that I got was Lebanon. Missed a lot that I knew, but just couldn't think of.

I ran out of time, but honestly there were some I never would've gotten. Epic quiz, I got 304...I have a feeling getting them all would take a number of tries, which is great.

Typing Winston gives you Winston-Salem in the answers, but also turns Salem, OR green. Typing Salem gives you both answers and both turn green.

I'm fairly happy with my 153, but there are about 30-40 more I should've gotten. (And about 50 I would not have gotten if given twenty hours!)

Could "Stroudsburg" also be accepted for "East Stroudsburg?" Stroudsburg is a principal city for that metro, along with East Stroudsburg.
