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.)

Level 70
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.

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 70
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.

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.
+3
Level 70
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.

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!

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.

So much fun! I managed to get 4 points with 228 answers, but that leaves a lot of room for improvement. I'll be coming back to this one for sure.

I felt a little bad for missing a city in Georgia (the state where I live), but was mollified when I noticed it was the least guessed answer at 9%.
