Problems in Region Cleanup (Finland)

We are doing Region cleanup in Finland. In other words, we are trying to fix zones by editing and/or consolidating zones on Go Hunting site.

Now, we are encountering problems when doing wild releases. Sometimes, the old zones that should have been hidden or edited, are still available in "Manage Zones" section (although these zones do not exist on Go Hunting site anymore).

For example:
We have hidden a zone called Hämeen partiokauppa, Klingendahl.
Finland -> Pirkanmaa -> Tampere -> Hämeen partiokauppa, Klingendahl

It is not visible on Go Hunting site anymore. Still, some members can choose this zone in their drop down menus (Manage Zones) when doing wild releases. I can't, but some of us can.

I can't edit these drop down menus in Manage Zones section. Should I be able to do it? Is the updating just taking its time? Or can this be user-specific because of different browser versions, caches, etc..?

Many thanks!

If these are the members that used the zone before, and have it in their own short cut list, then that is unfortunately expected behaviour. You could also call it a known bug.

That is why, if sensibly possible, merging is preferrable to hiding.

Billion Thanks, Moem! Now I see. Yes, we have preferred merging and avoided hiding. Thanks for your great help!

You're welcome, glad I could help!

Just so you know: I believe that editing zones before you hide them, for example by adding DON'T USE (or a local equivalent) to the name, *will* show up on people's shortcut list.
Unless I'm wrong.
Which I sometimes am.
But I hope not now.
