100%! It took me about 10 hours over the course of multiple days. Well done to the author

Can’t get this town on the west side of Maui in Hawaii, does anyone know what it is?

Air Force Base should be accepted in lieu of AFB. And Mt in lieu of Mount. Please and thank you!

May I suggest making a version of this where you place the markers rather than remove them? Same with the world map and other similar quizzes.

That would be brutal, you wouldn’t be able to tell what you missed… I like it! Even more brutal would be forcing you to specify the state for each town so you have to know which states have a Springfield.

+1 to this idea.

This would be a lot of fun. It’d be a different type of challenge, not knowing for sure what’s still out there. But the feedback would be fun to track, a heat map of the places you know best.

In this quiz 100% equals about 220 million people, but the US has about 325 million inhabitants…
How is that possible? Do so many people live outside city limits and are because of that not counted in this quiz?

^Yep.

Really depends a lot on where you are too. Rural areas in the eastern US are more populous than in the west; there’s really no equivalent in the east to the Great Basin or the bulk of Alaska where you literally have miles and miles of totally unpopulated land.

In the west, a lot of urbanized areas just aren’t incorporated. Portland, Oregon; San Diego; Las Vegas; and I assume most others each have very substantial populations in areas outside city limits. There are also unincorporated “islands” of just a few lots literally surrounded by a city, but which for whatever reason never became part of that city. Aloha, Oregon would be one of the Oregon’s larger cities if it incorporated. Beaverton tried annexing nearby areas, including parts of Aloha, until a rather messy legal fight involving Nike put a halt to that. Usually the county takes care of planning and other services for these areas.

Then of course there are places like Damascus, Oregon which *were* briefly incorporated but then unincorporated, but that tends to be rare.

Will we be getting the old text-only version of this quiz back soon?

There should be 10 cities above 1M thanks to San Jose…

Damascus, Oregon disincorporated last year. Not sure if it’s intentional or not, but it’s treating cities with dashed names differently from cities without dashes. So, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA and Milton-Freewater, OR only need the first word to count, but multiword cities need the full name (Oregon City, etc.).

They’re there… It may take a while on older systems or slower connectons (don’t know if that’s the case) given the sheer amount of markers. Load the quiz, go for a coffee or a stroll outside and be back in 10 minutes. Or just play the text version of the quiz… 🙂

OK so just for fun I decided to play this quiz once, just typing in the last names of U.S. presidents. Apparently there are 339 U.S. place names that are exactly the last name of a US president (not including derivations like “Jefferson City”). 3,885,317 people live in these cities, or approximately the population of Bosnia and Herzegovina. That’s pretty astounding. And the only last names that didn’t give me any results were Obama, Reagan, Eisenhower, and for some reason Hayes. I really would’ve expected there to be a place called Hayes.

Sorry. Just thought that was kinda interesting.

Did you subtract the population of the city named Jeffers from that?

Got to 90.7% and the page crashed. I hate my life.

Playing the No Map version of the quiz is much safer in that respect… Twice this quiz crashed on my first couple attempts forcing me to change to the text version. It’s harder since you don’t have the map as a reference but at least will allow you to register your score.

Is there a zoomable version of this quiz? It would be much easier to tell what cities remain to be guessed if I could zoom in. Thanks!

This quiz tends to crash a lot in its regular form… I think zooming 22.000+ dots back and forth would probably raise its crashing potential.

Dear everyone else over 90%, I salute you.
