Here's a bit bigger task:
Netherlands Antilles was dissolved as a political entity at 10th October 2010.
To be politically more correct, state of Netherlands Antilles should be deleted and create corresponding islands (Curacao, Bonaire, Sint Maarten, Saba and Sint Eustatius) on the state level. I could help sorting out which locatios go where, if moderators have time to do this task.

Thank you Kari,
I will first have to investigate and discuss your request because I'm not sure that Sint Maarten, Saba and Sint Eustatius are states on their own, I thought they still are part of The Netherlands?
In fact my husband, who is a Dutch citizen, told me that the BESislands, Bonaire, St Eustachius and Saba, are now called Carabean Netherlands.
Also Aruba and Curacao should be single countries but part of the Netherlands Kingdom?

Please help me understand how to "split" these 5 "states" into a correct division, then I'll be able to ask IB to correct the data.

Groetjes - Viviane

Default Netherlands Antilles

Hi Viviane,
Longer explanation can be found in Wikipedia under article <A HREF="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dissolution_of_the_Netherlands_Antilles">Dissoluti on of the Netherlands Antilles</A>.
Shortly, Curacao and Sint Maarten are now constituent countries under Kingdom of Netherlands. And Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius are special municipalities of the Netherlands. But as TE classification is not and could never be so fine grained, I suggest that all those islands would be 'States' under Netherlands -> Other. BES islands don't have common governance, so I think they should not be grouped together. And for a normal tourist it is also more clear to show each island separately.

Any chance of fixing a few city names within the "state" of Fife in Scotland?

There are currently 4 entries for St Andrews with different spellings
i.e. St Andrews
St. Andrews
St.Andrews
Saint Andrews

Also there is North Queensferrz which is a misspelling of North Queensferry
and Kirkaldy which is a misspelling of Kirkcaldy

Smile Dissolution of Netherlands Antilles

Hi Viviane,
I went through locations of Netherlands Antilles to sort out how they should
divided on different islands. I sent you email as the list is longish.

Default Wuzhen

I just got back from Wuzhen yesterday, & would like to upload some new photos. However, all of the existing Wuzhen images incorrectly list the province as Jiangsu. It is in fact in northern ZHEJIANG province. I crossed the state boundary twice going to & from Zhejiang from Suzhou in Jiangsu. Would it be possible to amend some or all 8 of these?

Default Phnom Penh

In case there is time for this, here another place that needs some sorting!

The normal spelling of Cambodia's capital is Phnom Penh but people often get it wrong and now there is:
phenom phen
Phnom Pehn
Phnom Penh Train Station
Phnom Phen
Phnom Phenh
PhnomPenh
Phnum Pehn
Phnum Penh
Phnumpenh
Phom Penh
Phomh Penh
Phonm Penh
Phunm Penh
Pnohm Penh
pnomh penh


Actually the province (oddly spelled Phnum Penh in TE list) and the city are geographically the same thing and there should be only one city in the "Phnum Penh province" city list.
Some of the places listed in that list are in other provinces of even in other coutries (Cartagena, Colombia)
