I was told to come to this site to ask about changes to how Hampshire (UK) is categorised on Steam's profile editor, since it uses this site's data. Apologies in advance if this is the wrong place to post...

I noticed that Hampshire only displays Eastleigh and Waterlooville, whilst missing most of its other towns/cities.

Also Portsmouth is incorrectly labelled as being it's own county with the following towns/cities, under it:
- Fareham
- Gosport
- Havant
- Portsmouth
- Ryde
- Waterlooville

Ryde should be listed under the Isle of Wight, while the other places should be under Hampshire.

Thanks

I don't know what steam is doing or where they have the data from.

GeoNames seems to have this correct.
Example:

http://www.geonames.org/2638911/ryde.html
http://www.geonames.org/2649692/fareham.html
http://www.geonames.org/2648272/gosport.html

Best Regards

Marc
