Does it accept...

Fucking, Austria?
He needs to update the town's name. It changed to Fugging in January 2021.

FTFY.
Condom, France?
Intercourse, Pennsylvania?
Dildo, Canada?

Yes, yes and no.

I did one for Canada, since it is where I live.
Here are my results: https://iafisher.com/projects/cities/canada/share/265653

I decided to do a Canada one too.  Not too bad.  Weird that I know more cities in the Yukon, NWT, and Nunavut than I know cities around Toronto.

He needs to update the quiz with the 2020 Census data. It still doesn't accept Jurupa Valley, for example.

When I played it, it accepted Tucker, GA, incorporated in 2015.

Because Tucker was a CDP before incorporation, while Jurupa Valley wasn't. Instead, one has to input the CDPs from which Jurupa Valley was formed (Glen Avon, Mira Loma, Pedley, Rubidoux and Sunnyslope).

Okay, the game has been updated to the 2020 census results. Two side effects of this is any places incorporated since 2010 that weren't previously a CDP are now accepted (e.g. Jurupa Valley), and I can no longer name any places with just 1 reported person, the lowest being 2 which is again a tie (the well-known Monowi NE, which still has only one permanent resident; and Topock AZ).

Bumping this thread again because a while ago the creator added another stat, Rarest cities (i.e. those the least guessed). So far the least guessed populated place in the USA I've been able to come up with is Cañada de los Alamos, New Mexico, guessed only in 0.01% of the games (this excludes recently added places such as Jurupa Valley, California), but back in Europe I'm easily able to go down to 0.000% :sombrero:, and not just in Spain. Most notably Coccau di Sopra at the Northeastern corner of Italy, which tops the ranking whenever I run through that country, and is even less guessed than my top least guessed French place, Asasp-Arros (through where I've passed several times).

The site has had a Reddit group for a few months now: https://www.reddit.com/r/iafisher/. The creator posts weekly challenges every Monday, which I do in the World map. First I check which ones of the 10 places of my two groups, the "example towns" (consisting of Ariza, Spain; Aschersleben, Germany; Belvidere, Illinois, USA; Isernia, Italy and Rombas, France) and the "Sunray Union" (Huesca, Spain -glad my hometown is in :sombrero:-; North Adams, Massachusetts, USA; and Dombasle sur Meurthe, Saffre and Wingen sur Moder all in France), fit the criterion chosen for the week, then fill the map with other places I know. So far every one has appeared at least once, and there have been weeks in which none has qualified (like this week, as none of them are on a coast) while a few other times three of them have qualified (like the week in which the creator asked for three of the same letter).
