Region Names

I noticed that there are two separate regions for "Mediterranean" and "The Mediterranean." I find this confusing. Is there really a difference between those two names? I think people might search for one region and wind up with another due to a small change in the title.

That's just an example, but should "The Bahamas" and "Bahamas" really be two different regions? I'm sorry for being so picky! I really do enjoy the game.

That's how it is, I'm afraid. There's The Pacific and Pacific and The South Pacific and South Pacific and allsorts.

The regions are made in a 'letter' way, i.e. if no other region has that set of letters in that order it can be made.

So the net doesn't know the difference between: 'The Pacific' and 'Pacific' except that there are 4 extra bits to it (yes for, theres a space :wink: )

To the net its the same as having a region called: 'Treefrokn' and 'Treebrokn'

That just the way it is kid..
