Some POI's not showing on Mobile Device

Postby kuduboet » Thu Dec 27, 2012 8:12 pm

Hi there,

apologies if I am asking a "noob" question here, have tried to search for the do's and don'ts. I have been making a number of edits to POI's, everything from Police Stations to restaurants in my area. Some of them are showing on the live map and then others that were done a while ago still show in the editor with all the details but don't appear on the mobile device map. An example is a labeled a fire department location last week and it is already showing on the mobile device, but several fast food chains and other locations that were labeled several weeks ago are still not showing on the mobile device? Are there types of POI's we are not supposed to label like chain restaurant's? I watched the youtube videos and read the wiki and don't recall anything saying don't label things like McDonald's or Arby's. Thanks in advance for the guidance, looking forward to making the Waze maps more valuable for everyone.

Problem is I can't find them in the forum, the User ID showing in editor is kdyckes, am I looking for the user in the wrong way, can you find a user with that ID?

So how do I tell this person to stop other than just deleting them? I can tell from their user number that they are newer than me, but don't know who they are, do we have a way of sending a user a message advising them to read the rules? Suggestions? Thanks

Send them a PM here in the forum.
