Because the search does not bring up all the shops, there seems to be lot of doubles submitted to the DB now. the merge requests are cluttering the forum, so please add them to this thread instead of opening a new topic. Thanks.

By creating a new thread for each, I was following teo's advice in this thread http://www.vinylhub.com/forum/375-How-to-avoid-double-entries

Where he said:

"For now let's just do it in the forum. Make a new topic with "Merge" in the subject and include the two links, and say which one should remain. thanks!"

Oh danm did not notice that. Sorry. Though I'm being helpful :(

I do hope that a mod or someone comes long soon because we now have a ton of duplicates!

Okay, all of the shops mentioned here have been merged. Thanks for being patient!

Ok, those 3 Maniac Records ones are merged.

oops. didn't catch there was already a listing for this one:

Thanks for removing the previously mentioned duplicates.

Here's another one, De Plaatboef in Utrecht:
http://www.vinylhub.com/shop/3146-De-Plaatboef
http://www.vinylhub.com/shop/5018-Plaatboef

chava, cdteek, magnix: thanks for that. I've removed all of those duplicates!

done!

http://www.vinylhub.com/shop/8210-Hardwax Another HARDWAX i'dont know where to merge to.

I suggest a prompt (maybe popup) when choosing to add a new shop, with a suggestion to ensure that the shop does not already exis in the DBt.

This is a quick fix which possibly could prevent the ever-growing number of duplicates cluttering the DB.

Okay, all of the duplicates posted here have been removed. Thanks, everyone!

@chava, good idea. I'll see what I can do about that.

Filter musikk also sells music : https://www.facebook.com/filtermusikkvinyl

Taille 33, Louvain La Neuve
Louvain La Neuve is a city without car, then it was impossible to found the street on the research map

Rush Mor & Rush-mor

Both with same address etc,

One entry is much more complete info, pics, etc.

Thanks

Visiting the generic Shops link from the main page shows what appears to be a blank entry located in Milan, Italy. Upon viewing the page source, the culprit appears to be http://www.vinylhub.com/shop/6950- which is a shop added (?) without a name or address. The only other shop the user added is http://www.vinylhub.com/shop/6951-Sound-Cave which is also in Milan, so it's safe to say it's a merge.

please delete this shop:
http://www.vinylhub.com/shop/11256-Novoe-iskusstvo (the shop had been closed on this address)
keep this instead:
http://www.vinylhub.com/shop/5580-New-Art-Novoe-Iskusstvo

https://www.vinylhub.com/shop/16198-Lost-Chord
...closed for business last year and became...
https://www.vinylhub.com/shop/19406-LP-Records
...at the same address.

This one: https://www.vinylhub.com/shop/6179-The-Rocking-Bull
Moved to: https://www.vinylhub.com/shop/22061-The-Rocking-Bull

So when merging, the info of the 2nd one mentioned needs to stay.

Another dupe from Budapest

please use the 2nd one - thx

Never mind on the above, I just learned the admin tool (I'm on staff), got 'er done.

@19841227: I've merged the dupes you mentioned, thanks for letting us know.

There's 3 entries for Magpie Music in Chippenham, UK.

This is the one I added over a year ago:
https://www.vinylhub.com/shop/19033-Magpie-Music

And these two have appeared over the last 3 months:
https://www.vinylhub.com/shop/2141-Magpie-Music
https://www.vinylhub.com/shop/28090-Magpie-Music

@nowaxjim I merged that dupe, thank you for the heads up

Another one to merge:

https://www.vinylhub.com/shop/994-Rock-Bottom-Records
https://www.vinylhub.com/shop/6417-Rock-Bottom-Records

I suggest keeping the first one, as this shows the correct location of the shop.

merged, thanks for the heads up AndyWhelan

@kalli

Please merge (or delete) Pop Up Records. Pop Up became Records Per Minute. They are the same store, Pop Up Records was only the temporary name of it for the first couple weeks. It has been Records Per Minute for at least 5 years.

Merged, thanks @AndyWhelan

Suggest keep 15600, as more have recorded that as visited

When we merge it moves want-to-visit and visited over from the duplicate to the original, so should be all good. But appreciate the thought!
