This kind of problems are solved manually by coordinates volunteers.
Sta Venera is now subsumed to Santa Venera profile, so if you'll continue to enter notes using Sta Venera you won't have two distinct locations anymore.

La Hoya hasn't yet got a dot on the map. It's La Hoya in the Murcia province, halfway between Lorca and Totana along the Autovía del Mediterraneo.
And please correct the name of La rabita. It should be La Rábita

I think this city should be merged with this one.

The first one has only bills by one (inactive) user and the name looks like a nickname for the true name of the place.
My NIG stats have finally disappeared. My EBTST stats are still available.

I dissagree. Looking at the postalcode of the hit with Dommelvalley (5627) I think it should be merged with Eindhoven (postalcodes 5600 to 5658). Dommelvalley isn't a propername - not even a nickname for Eindhoven. But the river Dommel is going to this town.

You're right, I didn't look far enough, I just knew Dommelvalley is not an existing place name.

what's up with the Country profile of Hong Kong should all cities be merged into Hong Kong and the country be deleted or how are we going to aproche this (Hong Kong as independend country doesn't exist since 1999, I think, so no one could have entered bills there anyway) :?: :?: :?:

May be. The english dictionary tells an other story. And since the official name would be greek or turkish anyway, I'd guess they ment to write it in English for the tourists and made a little typo. And Baths and of are english words ... so I thourght Aphrodite should be, too. No :?: Ok :!:

You don't have to guess ... you have to be sure if you want to make changes. This is just making EBT less correct :| .

This is why I didn't change anything and posted it in the forum. So we (maybe not you and I, 'cause I get the feeling I pissed you off by posting something about Belgium before) can talk about it.

And for my motives: Even if all signs in China would say "Chek Lap Kok - Hong Kong Internationl Airport" or some other kind of typo, I'd (and that's just me) prefer it to be "Chek Lap Kok - Hong Kong International Airport" in EBT, if we want to write it in English. That's my point of view.
