Wildcards in query by place name?

Is there a way to do wildcards in the .q placename search? For example, if I search for "chicag,US" return Chicago. Basically, implied "starts with"?

  • There is currently no way to include wildcards in place names. The volume of data that could be returned for some queries (e.g. "a*") would use up much bandwidth and cpu time. We are looking into ways to handle misspellings and truncations, if that would help you.
