Wrong location of a town / place

Is there any way to change the location of a town when it is completey wrong, Port Barton, Philippines for instance somewhere in the Atlantic, south of Ghana (on the same place is also Chobe National Park)

Re: Wrong location of a town / place

South of Ghana means longitude=0.0 and latitude=0.0

Re: Wrong location of a town / place

You can't. You can ask the Admins to do it, but they probably won't and they don't do much of this kind of small stuff anymore. You can cheat a little and create a new place with a variation on the name, like Port of Barton or such. If you don't want to do that it's possible to create the name as "Port Barton ", and notice the space at the end. It will then show up as "Port Barton , Philippines".
