After much work, the process of adding a new spot has been changed. It’s now simple and fast, you can do it in less than 10 seconds!

  • First, make sure you’re logged in
  • Click Add a spot on the home page
  • Type the name of the spot and hit Search
  • If the spot doesn’t already exist, you can either:
    • Create it from scratch (i.e. set the position on the map yourself)
    • Or import a wikipedia article (only if the search found some results on Wikipedia)

So if I want to add the Eiffel Tower for example, I just have to search it and click Import from Wikipedia and that’s it!

Look, there’s even an auto-completion to correct spelling mistakes:

Here is what it looks like for a search:

I am proud to present a brand new release including the following:

You now have a map of where you’ve been on your profile page!

Except that, here are the bugfixes:

  • Layout improved on the Explore page.
  • When adding a tag, the page now refreshes to show the changes (instead of a message box).
  • Fixed a bug that showed “1+” instead of “+1″ when voting for a spot.
  • Fixed a UI bug of the background when scrolling down.

You can let me know of anything in the comments or by email.
