Indexer / Reviewer Consultant
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be an "Aussie", from "Downunder" ... ]
The 'Places', in the "Place Names" Database, in 'FamilySearch', is an ONGOING 'Work in Progress' ...
[ That will, most likely, NEVER end ... ]
And, certainly, one particular Country, that NEEDS a LOT of work, is "Australia".
And, plus, the SAME also applies, to our "Cousins", from across the 'Tasman', in "New Zealand".
It certainly WOULD be GREAT, if 'FamilySearch', had MORE Users/Patrons, from both, Australia; and, New Zealand, 'volunteering' to work, at address/fixing the 'Places', in the "Place Names" Database, in 'FamilySearch', for two OUR Nations.
On a number of occasions, I have offered my services, for such; but, alas, my offers have NOT been taken up...
As an aside ...
As, you indicate, that you are particularly an "Indexer"/"Reviewer" ...
What makes things even worse, is that, from a recent post, in this "Community.FamilySearch" Forum ...
It would appear, that the "Indexing" Part, of 'FamilySearch', DOES NOT appear to INCLUDE, "All" of the relevant 'Place', that appear in the "Place Names" Database, in 'FamilySearch'; OR, in the least, the "Synchronisation" between, the "Indexing" Part, of 'FamilySearch'; and, that of the "Place Names" Database, in 'FamilySearch', is questionable.
One Indexer/Reviewer suggested, that a 'Place', needed to be added, to the "Indexing" Part, of 'FamilySearch'
Whereas, THAT (actual) 'Place' ALREADY existed, the "Place Names" Database, in 'FamilySearch'
That seem somewhat ODD ...
[ How about that in the mix ... ]
Just my thought.
