Let's start by saying that region cleanup is done by our small but mighty volunteer Region Clean Up Team. Ordinary BookCrossers, just like you, who have kindly offered their free time to work on things behind the scenes.

The clean up process in regards to this forum works like this:
- - you submit a request
- - a member of the team picks up your request
- - they double check the legitimacy of your request
- - your request is fulfilled, OR we will post in your forum thread asking you for more info

What the team need from you:
- - A clear header - you can see from past examples of posts how this is done
- - LINKS!!!! Don't just post a list of places names. Direct us where we are looking
- - Check back - once you have made a request, check back regularly to see if you've been asked any questions about it
--------------------------------------------------------
EXAMPLE:
Please consolidate/merge* the following - New Jersey is not a city within New York, it is its own state:
USA > New York > New Jersey > Parsippany, New Jersey
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/56153
into...
USA > New Jersey > Parsippany
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/16952

*state clearly which one is to be to merged into another

Spelling correction & add address:
Alamo Draft House, downtown
https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/37922
Edit: Draft House To: Drafthouse
Add the address : 320 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701
--------------------------------------------------------

Once the request has been attended to, the post header will be labelled with [DONE] to indicate this.

In the instance where you yourself have created a release zone, but made a spelling mistake, you can fix that yourself simply by :
- - looking the zone up on the Go Hunting page
- - find the 'Edit' button and that will let you correct the zone name and the address
- - remember to hit SAVE at the very bottom

Please do not "bump" a post.
It will already have our attention, but it takes time to process a request because each one must be individually searched, checked and only then is it manipulated/edited in BookCrossing's database.

For further info, here is an article from 2008, much of which is still relevant:
