Hi nulis!

The postcard shows it is from China, because that is my current location - but at the time it was sent I was actually in Portugal :)

It's a known bug in Postcrossing, and Paulo is working to fix it.

Cheers,

Ana

Hi Ana, I was intrigued and puzzled by your response of about seven months ago, on this page, to a query by nulis. I have not seen nulis's query. However, upon looking at the details under the map for PT-1, I was struck that this postcard has travelled 7784 kilometres from Oliveira de Azemeis in Portugal to somewhere near Maia, also in Portugal, which is about thirteen times the north-south extent of the whole of Portugal . . . ! I am wondering whether, perhaps, you have actually wanted to say to nulis that the postcard is shown as having been sent from Portugal, but was actually sent from China, where you were resident when you have posted it(?), and that THIS is the bug in Postcrossing that is yet to be fixed. In any event, that is a bug which I have observed, and which seems to explain the odd data for the journey of PT-1. Ingo

A very special first postcard, but why did you choose this one? It is lovely, but is there any special reason? And when you sent it, did you ever imagine that the project would grow to this amount? We have just sent the three millionth postcard a while ago. I'd be interested to know what your expectations for the project are in the future.

It is strange to see how big postcrossers community now is.. I think the best ideas ever are so simple, like this one, but somebody has to start it and you guys from Portugal should be possitioned somewhere close to Columbus:)) It is hard to imagine there are send more postcards through this project than lives in my country! (3.35 mln in Lithuania).. Amazing. Thank you..

paulo Postcrossing Supporter said:

In the early days of Postcrossing we didn't track the original coordinates of origin/destination of a postcard, so when a person moved, the postcards "moved" with him/her.

We have fixed this a few years ago for new postcards, but for the older ones we don't have a way to know the original coordinates (if the person moved in the meantime).

...except, of course, if it's this one! I've manually updated it to reflect the original data. 1 km was more like it :).
