I remember when WTHAI first came out. They were strict on spelling, capitalization and punctuation. In fact, on this go around, I saw someone enter an answer that came up wrong. Then they put in the same answer with a comma (like Boston, MA instead of Boston MA) and it was accepted as correct.

Consistency will be helpful for those of us trying to figure out these things.

Yeah, I put in:

The Colosseum, Caesars Palace, Las Vegas
The Colosseum, Las Vegas

because I looked up what appeared to be a Celine Dione concert in the photo of Where Am I...(they built The Colosseum specially for her). Much to my surprise, I was TOO specific on my guess and would have won it with just Caesars Palace.

Wow. for the number of guesses you get, it's too bad you have to use a handful to guess the version of the winning guess.
(Yes, I understand it's a limitation of the way the editors have to come up with a variety of ways people can guess, just sayin'...)

It's not that you can't use punctuation. According to the official website, Caesars Palace does NOT contain an apostrophe, so one was not included in the answer choices. All of the answers leading up to Chick's contained the apostrophe and so did not register as correct. Punctuation is still allowed in the puzzles as of now. Redwingchick has also been credited for the puzzle.

Any talk about dumping the punctuation, the way there is no punctuation in WPs? (yeah, I know, I'm not a BETA, but reading what you guys say prepares me for my day).
