How to Suggest one of your Personal Locations as a Hotspot
On any page in eBird click on "My eBird"
In the column on the right "My Observations" click on the fourth item "Manage My Locations"
This brings up a list of your personal locations. Note the search box where you may type all or part of the name of the location you want to find:
Type the name of the location you want to suggest as a Hotspot and select it from the list that pops up:
On the Edit Location screen, note the link "Suggest as Hotspot" below the name of the location and to the right of the coordinates. Click on "Suggest as a Hotspot".
You will get a message asking if you are sure you want to suggest this as a Hotspot. Click on "Yes".
The Hotspot reviewer will then get a message from eBird that you have suggested a Hotspot and will review the suggestion and get back to you about it.
