RE: 👉 Region Cleanup Forum Etiquette & HELPFUL INFO! 👈
Hi Region Cleanup Team,
A while ago the French régions have been modified.
In consequence, the current French BookCrossing regions are not correct anymore. This is most confusing for non-French. I launched a discussion on the French forum to see what other French BookCrossers where thinking.
Instead of taking over replacing the regional level with the new regions (which are confusing for many French and would lump many city-level entries together), the idea was to use the département-level as “BC regions”. (There are numerous administrative levels in France, for me départments seem considered as regions anyway, and what is called in France regions more like a region group as of today. But that’s just my point of view as a non-French living in France.)
I started making a list based on current regions and cities on BookCrossing and identifying to which new region (or more precisely départment) each cities is linked as I understood that each request for change should be clear in which item is changed into which other item (and not just a general suggestion as “Please change these.”) for the volunteers to be as easy to work on as possible.
Someone pointed out to me that I might have taken over a significant workload before any decision has been made. However, I understood that any suggestion should be very specific...
Please advise the best way to proceed in the interest of all of us.
