Repeat articles

Hello, I just wondered if there is a process for merging places that have been published twice on the atlas?

I noticed it on these places:


Hey @AdOYo thanks a bunch, our system typically flags them but it’s not perfect. We are also working on a tool to better consolidate these entries. I will add this to the list. Thanks a bunch

Ah brilliant, I bet the atlas gets quite a few duplicates but I’ve only ever seen a couple get through the net! And I know you have the process that flags up similar titles when submitting places incase it’s been done before.
The consolidation tool sounds brilliant as it would be a shame to lose out the great writing and info from an albeit duplicate place!
Thank you so much for your reply!

Hey team, @Monsieur_Mictlan highlighted another case of duplicate entries below:

I’ve found two more myself that I’ve been in touch with @tyler about:

And the two entries in this place are actually the same:

He mentioned that a software tool is needed to merge these duplicates correctly, but they are currently waiting on a fix for this tool.

In the meantime, I thought it might make sense to revive this thread in case someone else has other duplicate entries they have found and want to bring attention to.

There was also this comment 2 years ago:

It is in regards to the two places here, not sure if I agree, but I’m also interested in seeing if the editors have any comments about them:
