I've heard many times over here in Ibiza apuntarte en la lista(de invitados),for putting people on the guest list for the big clubs!

Yes, but that means "Sign up on the list," not "write here."

On one of the BBC Spanish lessons ["Mi Vida Loca"], the tourist asks "Hay otro hotel'," because the hostel is full. The passerby tells her, yes, but it's far from here, "La Posasd del Canal." The tourist looks a little confused, so the passerby says: "Se lo apunto." -- "I'll write it down for you" -- and she writes "La Posada del Canal" on a piece of paper.

Yes, the words you are hearing are:

apuntarte aquí: join here/write down your name here

No, it's not. In fact, as far as I know, puntar isn't even a real word. He may have been thinking of apuntar. But even that doesn't mean write as in "write (something) here."

Puntar sí es un verbo, pero es muy raro: poner puntos diacríticos al escribir árabe o hebreo para que se sepa qué vocales hay que pronunciar.

I guess I'm used to reading things phonetically after reading so many high school students' papers with words spelling wrong. I just try to sound it out and it's usually something right, just spelled wrong! So, is "puntar aquí" a good way to say "write here"'

Please write here = Por favor, escriba aquí Is this what you wanted?

A huge light bulb just went on in my brain. Kamran was trying to ask how to say puntar aquí!

And when he said "Please write here," I thought he was asking me to write something there.

Talk about making it difficult for us...
