missing city
Hi Viviane,

Can you add the city of Caplan in the province of Quebec in Canada.

Thank you

Pierre Langlois

Hi Viviane

Another place name that needs cleaning up.

Fethiye is in Mugla Province so that is the correct one to use. Oludeniz and Gocek are separate, nearby towns with their own folders. Here's a list of the current 17 or so choices which could be reduced to 1 or 2.

Kayakoy is in Mugla Province. But it has its own folder too.

Bonjour Chris,
I think i have made all the necessary changes for these locations...
Would you mind to check it please?


ChrisJ 10-07-2018 12:46 AM

Looks great now. Only 1 to choose from for Fethiye. And thanks.

Hi Viviane

I spotted another. Capriana is in Chisinau province. So the photos posted by mdknight & tomcezar should be moved from Gagauzia (south of Chisinau city) to Chisinau, Capriana (north west of Chisinau city).

Here's the page.

The Turkish photographer 'Osmansah' has got it right with the postings for Kirsovo, so they should stay in Gagauzia.

Hi Chris,
"Capriana" is back where it belongs... :)


ChrisJ 12-18-2018 10:06 AM

Hi Viviane

I found another. Cluj-Napoca in Romania, which has about 6 locality entries, that could all be under Cluj-Napoca.


Porteplume 12-18-2018 11:56 AM

It has been done... Thank you! :)

Veliko Tarnovo
Hi Viviane

I found another. Veliko Tarnovo has its own province of Veliko Tarnovo, so these 15 photos could be moved from Lovech., merci

Porteplume 01-05-2019 07:01 AM

It has been done... Thank you! :)


ChrisJ 02-10-2019 07:18 AM

Hi Viviane.

I found another.Earth >> Europe >> Greece >> South Aegean >> Kyklades >> Milos

At the moment there is this, with many just having 1 or 2 photos.All of the above could be added to Kyklades - Milos - Adamas (Anglicised 'Adamantas' formally, although 'Adamas' is more commonly used) Greeks use 'Adamas'. I guess the formal name for San Francisco is Saint Francis, but nobody uses that name. Adamas is the main town and port on Milos. It's a small island so it's not necessary to list every tiny village or bay on the island imho. Please include all my photos too which are just under Kyklades, Adamas.


Porteplume 02-13-2019 04:37 PM

It had been done Chris. Thank you for pointing this out... :)

Wrong location PETRA
Bonjour Viviane!

I found another wrong location. Petra in Jordan:

All Petra photos under Aqaba should be moved to Maan province. Petra is just 2 miles east of the Aqaba border but still in Maan. Thanks.

Porteplume 11-09-2019 11:12 AM

Bonjour Chris
It has been done.
Thank you for pointing this out...

Bien amicalement,

ChrisJ 11-23-2019 02:53 PM

Hi Viviane

I found another. The island of Kythira / Kithira. Off the south coast of Peloponnese but a NOT part of that admin region (Laconia)

It's incorrectly catalogued as Laconia Province and even Zakynthos (1). The correct province is Attica. Here is what photos from Kythira are currently filed under:-Kythira Attiki Attica Greece Europe-Kythira Lakonia Peloponnesus Greece Europe-Kythira Zakynthos Ionian Islands Greece Europe

"Attiki" is a neighborhood of Athens. No need to include that unless the photo is in Athens. The region is Attica, so would it be possible to amalgamate all of the above into:

Kythira - Attica - Greece - Europe.


Porteplume 11-23-2019 05:16 PM

Bonjour Chris,
I could move the ones from Lakonia but I can’t change “Attiki” because it has been added in the location program, sorry...

ChrisJ 11-26-2019 09:13 AM

Hi Viviane

Thanks for repairing Kithira. Could you also move this photo from Antalya to Batman province?

Porteplume 11-26-2019 12:01 PM

Done, Chris, I also added the name of the city, “Hasankeyf”


ChrisJ 12-01-2019 08:53 AM

Merci Viviane! Could you also amend the name of the city from Ayazin to Ayazini in this image.

Porteplume 12-01-2019 10:08 AM

Done! :)

Hi, Debark in Ethiopia is in the Amhara region (which is currently mispelt as Amara). cheers, steve

Porteplume 01-28-2020 10:04 AM

Hi Steve,
I have moved Debark to the “Amara”/“Amhara” region.
I can’t change the spelling and I found out there is a discussion about how it should be spelled... ;)


SteveH 02-06-2020 05:50 AM

Hi, thanks for fixing the Debark location. Interesting article about the spelling - I've only ever seen it with the "h". cheers, Steve

wrong locations
and Melbourne seems to have a few locations too.

Porteplume 03-12-2020 08:25 AM

Thanks for pointing this out Steve...

Just 4 locations are now listed, I just learned there was a Melbourne in Canada and Florida, but also one in Derbyshire, England and here is the clue:

In 1837 a small settlement on the banks of the Yarra River in Australia needed a name. Queen Victoria, after whom the State of Victoria is named, decided that it would be named Melbourne. This was as an honour for thé 2nd Viscount Melbourne, British Prime Minister and the political mentor to the young Queen.

Friendly greetings,

Wong Locations
Hi Viviane,

Here's another one for you. Harar in Ethiopia is in the state of Oromia. Cheers, Steve

Porteplume 04-05-2020 07:15 AM

Hi Steve,

i am very sorry but I can’t get the whole list so I would have to change every photo one by one... I have no idea howmany photos are wrongly situated in other regions than Harar.
It happens sometimes that region don’t show a proper “correction list” for the moderators.

Of course, if you want to have the location of a certain photo be changed, I will be happy to help...


SteveH 04-05-2020 08:09 AM

No problem - thanks for trying. Cheers, Steve
