    I don't see it as you being "wrong" and ROBCamra being "vindicated". People have expressed their views and most have said they don't see the point of the compass points. If you think they're valuable, there's nothing to stop you re-adding them! People who don't find them useful can just ignore them. And after all there's no harm done in having a pub in two or more areas.

    I understand how it can feel like a personal attack, when you try to do something to improve the site but get knocked back all the time, but I really don't think this is anything personal.

    It is no longer as simple as that. I tried to help Al and reintroduce his area points but they were again removed 5 hours later. http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/core/pubaudit.php?id=25964 It does sound a bit personal now. Are we getting as petty as on BITE!
    We all love pubs and PuG so lets keep it that way.

    Maybe Admin need to step in and make a firm ruling of some sort, what that would be I'm not sure but the tit for tat changes need to stop.

    The GBG uses N,E,S,W and Central for both Nottingham and Sheffield (although there doesn't seem to be a South Nottingham!). Does this mean that the entirety of these places is just Nottingham and Sheffield with no local names? I've been to Nottingham a few times but can't say I know it well. I've never been to Sheffield.

    Liverpool on the other hand is divided into the City Centre and then Liverpool: Suburb Name while Manchester just has the City Centre. Norwich, which strikes me as quite a big place has no subdivisions at all!

    If the oldest pub guide of the lot can't get a consistent approach then does it really matter whether this guide does?

    I've noticed area assignments, notably in North Wales that I don't agree with and are even inconsistent (in my OPINION), but I see little point in changing it just to suit me.

    Visiting a new town or area requires some preparation, I have no end of A-Z books, town plans and O/S maps covered in colour coded dots.

    Is a N, E, S, W and Central system useful? I have no opinion either way really as I live in London where Postcodes are the order of the day.

    Maybe that would be the way to go (or maybe not!).
