Funny answer.. Why would I edit numbers, if in this topic it is stated, that they are offline.

The same problem as with just a bi-polar UR response world...

How should we respond to Incorrect house number user reports? Fixed and do nothing or Not identified and do nothing?

While localities are removing non-numeric street addresses, there are a still a lot of them out there and will be for quite some time.

According to this document from USPS (dated April 2012)
http://pe.usps.gov/cpim/ftp/pubs/pub28/pub28.pdf Section 232 wrote:Hyphens in the address range are significant and are not
removed. Hyphens in the street or city name, however, normally are not
significant and may be replaced with a space.


That being said, many cities and towns are officially removing non-numerical characters from addresses for various reasons. Several years ago my address changed because the new 911 system the town installed couldn't support non-numerical addresses (my neighbor's old address number was 52A which caused a domino effect down the street).

I think USPS is actually working/advocating to remove all punctuation (stop) characters from addresses, particularly house numbers. You may want to double-check with USPS, but those Hawaiian addresses with the dashes in the house numbers are probably now supposed to be written without the dashes.

We had a similar convention here in the Queens borough of New York City, where the first part of the house number before a dash character indicated the block the address was on, i.e. a cross street. USPS now instructs those complete house numbers to be written as a plain sequence of digits without any dashes, spaces, punctuation marks, or other stop characters.

Great idea with pinpointing housenumbers :). Please keep in mind possible address format "streetname 1" & "streetname 1/A", where streetname is the same street....so basically the house number field should accept numbers, letters, (some) non-alphabet signs :)
