First of all, under Greece > Dodecanese, there are like ten listings of Rhodes. There is Rhodes, then Rhodes, Afandou; Rhodes, Faliraki; Rhodes, Ialysos -Kremasti and so on. Does it mean they should all consolidated into Rhodes, and then the name changed to Rhodes Island instead? Or they are different cities on Rhodes Island and should be kept as is? Should I rename them in any way?

Also, I noticed that there is Hotel Kresten Palace in Kalithea, and then one Hotel Kresten. Are they the same place?

My apologies for my very limited knowledge of Greece geography, just don't want to make more mess than it is now.

The usual problem...
People mix up Rhodes which is an island belonging to the Dodecanese group of islands in Greece with Rhodope which is an area on North-East mainland Greece.

There is no Kalithea in Rhodope, so those listings

Should be merged into the proper Kalithea in Rhodes

The same goes for Faliraki. This
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/187745
should be merged here
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/116794

The same goes for Kalathos. This
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/171815 should possibly go into a new zone under Greece>Dodecanese titled Rhodes:Kalathos

More decent listing for all those would be
Greece>Dodecanese>Rhodes Island>
and then different areas of the island, but I think that's not currently possible?

Furthermore, there are many duplicates within those zones, but I don't want to disturb you good people further. In case some of the support team has time to merge them, they are pretty obvious : )

Thank you very much in advance and sorry for been a pain!

I think people created Greece>Dodecanese> Rhodes:Faliraki etc because Rhodes is a large island and there is no option to create Greece>Dodecanese>Rhodes>Faliraki>Swapping self in X hotel for example.

Afandou, Faliraki, Ialysos, Kremasti are each one a different town or area on Rhodes Island which is a quite large one-at least by Greek standards. And then its main town is called Rhodes too- Rhodes Town I guess.

I am not extremely familiar with hotels in Kalithea, but I think those Kresten listings are both about the same place.

(I will post a thread to Greek forum to see if other people are willing to help with suggestions about areas they are familiar with. I don't see many Greek BCers visiting other forums than the Greek one while I'm sure most of them have a good knowledge of English language. A reminder to clear up the listings a bit doesn't hurt!)

Thanks for your time!
