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!

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.

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.

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!
