Description

It is not possible to set the location to Lodz in Poznan County in Poland. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%81%C3%B3d%C5%BA,_Pozna%C5%84_County)

The list of places shown contains 40 results and none is the afore mentioned Lodz.

Searching for 'test' gives London as first result.

I could not reproduce this. Entering Lodz in the search field gave me Łódź / Poland / Łódź Voivodeship as first result.

I believe the culprit here is the used Geonames webservice to get the location data.

For setlocation a different geolocation service is used as for search members. This should be consolidated.

Right. That isn't the Lodz I was talking about. If you go to http://www.bewelcome.org/places/PL/Greater%20Poland%20Voivodeship you see the one I mean with 1 member. (Well, however that guy managed to set that...)

Interesting:

When i click on the link with one member, i get the same results as clicking on the link in Łódź Voivodeship (13 members).

On both pages i see 14 members

That is a known issue. I'm trying to fix that after I got the set location fixed :-)

Ok, i managed to set my location to Łódź in Greater Poland Voivodeship. Actually i searched for Stęszew, the Gmina where the village is part of, and than i got the right Łódź as result.

However, we should get this result also when searching for Łódź directly.
