The previous Places Problems thread was getting unwieldy, and a lot of the reports in it are for things we've fixed, so I'm starting fresh with this summary. If I'm missing a major problem, please let me know in a reply, and I'll investigate and add it to the list.
PROBLEM: When searching in Link to a Place, you often don't find the entry in the Places Database, even if it already exists.
REPORTED: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/44200... 441
WORKAROUND: If you know the entry is there, search for it separately, and use the full name from the database to search when linking. Also, check to see if the Place has the correct Region assigned--that is often the reason it can't be found.
PROBLEM: Primary Cuisine list is missing some things and has odd categorizations for others.
REPORTED: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/443262 -- If you've got suggestions for updates, please use that thread on Site Talk to discuss them.
WORKAROUND: Select the closest option in Primary Cuisine and add the correct information in the cuisine tags fields.
