Hi.

Finding it strange that "Metro Manila" is not among the states listed under the Philippines since its the capital region. Could this be added?

The list of cities (and a municipality) under Metro Manila can also be added as follows:

City of Manila
Quezon City
Caloocan
Las Piñas
Makati
Malabon
Mandaluyong
Marikina
Muntinlupa
Navotas
Parañaque
Pasay
Pasig
San Juan
Taguig
Valenzuela
Municipality of Pateros

Thanks!

 

Unfortunately, adding regions/provinces is beyond the capabilities of the ordinary volunteer region managers - it is too high in the hierarchy, so to speak. We can only add cities and release zones like any other Bookcrosser can when they make release notes. Something like this will need to be referred to Support.

As for adding cities, nothing can be done until Metro Manila is added as a province. And, even then, you can do it yourself as you release books. As you progress through the release process, there will be an option to "add a city". It's quite easy to do and, as a local, you will be better positioned to check correct spelling etc. It's not something easily done by a foreigner with no local knowledge!

 

Just read this. (As a newbie to bookcrossing, I couldn't find my way back to these threads until now. :) )

Thanks for replying awaywithfairies. Yes, adding a city seems simple enough, but as you said, adding states/regions/provinces does not look as simple. So how does something like this get referred to Support? Are they still active?

Was thinking of putting up a bookcrossing zone (here in Metro Manila), and maybe encourage others to do the same. But without the existing region, I don't know how to get zones properly listed here. Are there alternative ways of going about it?

 

So how does something like this get referred to Support?


There's a link at the bottom of every page that says Contact Us. That would be where to send the request, I guess, though I don't know how quickly to expect an answer.

 

I actually tried that already a few weeks ago. Haven't heard from them. I guess I just have to be creative.

Thanks for taking time to reply to me, solittletime! :)

I didn't find your question in Support, but we don't seem to be able to add a province either. That's one step higher up in the hierarchy of the site, so we have to ask for it to be added and wait for the next update that would make it possible. It's not as easy as it sounds.

 

Thanks, hippolein!
Hope it eventually gets fixed.
