I suggest you ...

get rid of the same venue in different names - have just one for each place

    Is it possible to create another, separate field for the prefix of a venue name? - normally a sponsor name.

    For example the Hammersmith Apollo in London has had many different sponsor names (Labatt's / Carling / HMV) - so with this suggestion it would be possible to look at gig statistics for the Hammersmith Apollo as a whole, which is probably rather more useful / interesting than looking at the statistics separately under each sponsor name.

    If two venues are merged and someone adds a setlist to the old one, it should get autocorrected straight away. If it doesn't, it'll be automatically autocorrected once a day. The old names however need some time to get out of the list of choices (usually 2-3 days).

    I am slowly going around and merging all the duplicate venues in English-speaking countries (USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, etc.).

    I think what would help a lot is if the old venue names were removed from the list of choices, so no one can add a setlist with the old venue name. Either that, or have any setlists that are added with the old venue name, be autocorrected to the new venue name.

    I think the forum thread is a good idea too.
