Since Jet Punk usually ignores articles, how about (La) Paz, Bolivia?

JetPunk doesn't ignore articles; it's the quiz maker who sets up the quiz in such a way that you don't have to keep typing the articles.

Jetpunk should really ignore articles. Does the UK begin with a "T"? I also tried La Paz.

La Paz is never referred to as "Paz" by most of us. UK is mostly referred to as UK or United Kingdom. There's a difference.

That's simply false. It is very uncommon to hear "UK" without "the" preceding it. At least here in the UK itself, anyway

It does with sentences and booktitles etc. But not proper names..

In titles, in every day speech, people often drop the first "the" most people say "lord of the rings" while it actually is "the lord of the rings" But noone commonly drops the article for placenames.

Why is the last 'h' always removed from the answer? It's super annoying to end up writing 'hpalikirparamaribopristinapretoriaportmoresby' before looking up at the text field.

Like learning to type while looking at the screen, that's how you're supposed to do it (although I can't very well).

Yes, let's continue catering to the people who don't know how to spell and effectively punishing those who DO with the constant annoyance of having to delete letters and re-type entire answers.

This is why we're turning into Idiocracy guys.

What a curious comment. What did you mean by it, Sifhraven?

He means that in cases like “Pittsburgh” JetPunk accepts Pittsburg, so many times people who actually know how to spell have the h before their next word. He means that JetPunk should stop catering to those who can’t spell and should only accept it with the H at the end.

Probably written without the h sometimes, but it does happen a lot and probably shouldn't with Edinburgh and Riyadh. I agree it is a bit annoying.

who'd a thunk it? A port being an important enough settlement to be designated as capital city

If Benin is given on the C quiz for Cotonou, should it also be a given on this quiz with Porto Novo?

Not gonna lie, that was one of the last ones I remembered. I think sometimes you're searching your brain and straining so hard to think of the obscure ones that you forget the obvious ones.

Considering the constitutional and judicial capital of Bolivia is Sucre executive and legislative capital is La Paz. It is safe to say the Quiz Master chose the CONSTITUTIONAL capital for the answer.
