Dear everyone who reads this,

I hope there is anyone out there that can help me make a difference.
I'm Sophie and I'm from The Netherlands, Noord Holland, Zaandam to be precise.
There is a platform that I've been using called Steam, it's for gaming for those who are unaware and wondering what Steam is.

For the longest time I have been trying to let them add my city which is Zaandam.
We have a Township/Commune/Congregation that has several cities including Assendelft, Krommenie, Wormerveer, Westzaan, Zaandijk, Koog aan de Zaan and Zaandam.
I've got told that Valve/Steam got their information from here and because of this reason Steam now sees Zaanstad as a city.

I have huge love for where I come from and I'd love to have my own city on my profile instead of a collective name for several cities together.
It would mean the world to me if it gets added, i'd appreciate it so much.

I would do everything to get this fixed! Please can anyone help me out?

Much love,
Sophie

I don't know how steam is using geonames data and how old their latest update is.
Your information seems to be included.
