I've tried several times over the past few weeks - tried again a couple of days ago - and it is just not possible to add a tearoom to the Canadian subsite of TeaMap.
I dutifully fill out the submission form and click the "add tearoom" button. The submission form vanishes ... and the entry never appears.
If there are no plans to fix the Canadian subsite, can you please just remove it - or at least hide it until the problem is properly addressed? It's so frustrating to see all those blank pages, province after province, with no way of adding to them. And believe me, there are plenty of terrific tearooms that I'd love to submit to TeaMap if I only could! And I know there are other users who have been frustrated in their efforts to add tearooms.
By the way, this seems only to be the case with the Canadian subsite. I have succeeded in adding a couple of tearooms to the British subsite (from when I lived in the UK). And obviously the American subsite (main site) is working all right.
P.S. For your reference, here are a couple of threads on the TeaMap forum that mentioned this previously:
Adding to the TeaMap - owners only?
Tea Shops in Toronto?
We're always open to a little constructive criticism.

Thanks, Ilya. I will send along some details this evening.
However - I did try this with 2 or 3 different tearooms (for the British Columbia page), and also tried adding one to the Ontario page - just in case the issue was specific to the B.C. section. From what I can tell, it seems the problem is common to the Canada subsite, and takes place irrespective of the information submitted.
