Are you playing QuizUp in your hometown in Alaska, but for some reason it appears as if you're playing from Reykjavik, Iceland? You can fix your state or country location easily.
When you've opened the QuizUp page (QuizUp tab), located in the middle of the tab bar you should see the Settings option located in the left corner on the top bar.
To change your location:
Tap the settings option in the top left corner
Under settings you'll find the Edit Profile option
From there you should be able to choose your Country, State and City
Tap save in the top right corner
You can also easily access the settings from QuizUp.com - just click the triangle besides your display name on the top bar and select Settings. From there you can change your profile and update your location.
