Core code for adding places built - working off a small database of those changes that have been made over the past however many years. This is the bit of code that updates all the place and link databases with the new place and keeps a log so that it can be undone if found to be faulty. This works really well - it's quite astonishing the first few times when you add a new place and it instantly is available to the drop down place selector and appears in the gazetteer. The next step is to add the "moderation" (it's a form of retro-moderation) for these. Then the backlog can be added and moderated (there is, I'm afraid to say, a lot of good-intentioned rubbish in there), and then a front-end for the new system (but clearly made almost entirely of the old code) added.

New places are now listed in the moderation display.

At this stage I sort of got distracted from updating this file - so a lot of improvements never got written down!
