Safe to say Middlesbrough and Redcar caught me out. Also surely Batley should be here?

Being from Doncaster, I should have got Barnsley, but Hey-ho. Middlesbrough is the proper spelling, not Middlesborough. There should be more Yorkshire on Jetpunk, nowhere near enough.

Before setting a quiz you should check your spelling. I spelt Middlesbrough correctly, but the quizmaster isn't up to the job!

How rude! Before complaining about people who actually make the effort to devise a quiz maybe you should try making some yourself.. You are on level 75 but contributed not one quiz. Your rudeness should not be "tolerated"!!

You need to be clearer on what Yorkshire covers - Since Middlesbrough, however its spelt, stopped neing in the county in 1973, also Redcar.. And Pudsey? Are we sure Pontefract isn't as big?
