Also, does Hong Kong need an admin? :P

The directory page for Hong Kong is an absolute mess: there are neighbourhoods, MTR stations, and villages. The entire territory could be reorganised in one of two ways: into the eighteen districts (which would be more accurate but it may be more confusing to visitors) or, more ideally, the three regions of the city, which are Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and the New Territories. This would be a pretty large undertaking, but I think it's do-able and I'd be more than happy to take the challenge :)

This looks like it's not place-related, as I've bumped into brewery and beer pages that fail the same way:

Hey people!

As someone who's traveled around a fair amount I've always felt that Places were one of the most useful and important but also one of the most neglected parts of the site - so I've spent an enormous amount of time on the Sisyphean labors that are fixing that database - including, at a point in time, having the Prague database maximally correct and completely uniform... Which is very much likely not the case anymore as I doubt that people have followed the set norm while adding places, places have shut down, more have sprung up etc etc. You see what I'm getting at. Aaaanywaaaay....

Since we, people who admin around on free time simply don't have the time to monitor everything all the time and I full well know how irritating it is to go somewhere and it turns out that the info is way out of date (looking at you, places without up to date sites or facebook pages), let's help each other.

If you see anything wrong, in need of correction etc - please report it here and me or, I guess, whichever admin has the time and they will fix that. Wrong coordinates and wrong working hours are perhaps key, but everything!


PS. Please do rate Places you visit, and please never EVER just leave blank Place ratings < - those are the most useless, stupid, pointless thing on this site. By far the greatest value of Places is in written feedback - travelers helping each other out. :)


Marko, RB needs a method of integrating Yelp and other ratings into RB. I have at least 15 place ratings pending, but they, and their prose, seem convoluted compared to Yelp or other place rating sites.

These link work. however For some reason, that format hates Phoenixes in URLs. Other versions of the name don't work. Lil' Devil appears to be deleted.

It would appear that someone beat me to it. However, the ratings there are suspicious. Though all blank place ratings are suspicious by default. And suck ass. And should've never been an option.

Fixed the Portuguese one, will notify others of your utterly subtle wish to join us :D I'm sure some places might need help. :D

If there's a single ALL-CAPS place, it will "take over" the default name, there were two, fixed them. Fixed the Liege error too (if someone adds a version without an accent, that version takes over too). Jabbeke fixed, Oudenbug fixed, Zaventem fixed.

Agreed about the BCR, a full list would be great.

I can vouch for the bar personally; it's pretty good ;) I'll admit I need to improve my personal ratings, but I'm keen on helping build a better foundation before fixing my fluff on the top :P

It appears that "phoenix" is indeed the problem, as:
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/phoenix-beer/12812/ fails, but
https://www.ratebeer.com/beer/decorum/12812/ works
And:
https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/p-hoenix/2351/ works, but
https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/phoenixx/2351/ fails, yet
https://www.ratebeer.com/brewers/xphoenix/2351/ works again.
Almost as if the code was looking for '/phoenix' in the url, and deliberately crapping out on a match.

Regarding Lil Devil, deletion contradicts:
https://www.ratebeer.com/findbeer.php?beername=alesmith%20lil
which shows that it exists and it has 411 ratings;
and line 1142 on https://www.ratebeer.com/user/286327/ratings/23/5/
which shows that martjoobolut is one of those 411 raters. Mart also says in chat that Lil Devil is included in his compiled ratings.
