The way that parking lot is set up right now looks pretty good to me. If you look at the "Created By" & Updated By" fields, you will notice that the editors name have a number in parentheses next to it - this is the user's editing rank. You are both level 1 editors - meaning you are either both new or have not taken steps to be promoted as an editor (promotions are not automatic nor guaranteed). Have you tried reaching out to the user who is making these changes (they updated the gas station and created the panhandler) via PM here in the forum?DaveHolzmann wrote:Is there any way to tell if my work is being deleted by a prankster vs an experienced Wazer? (I'm content to concede to those who are trying to truly help the community, but would like to "win" the battle(s) over pranksters who are jokingly or not, vandalizing work. Or put another way, I want to contribute helpful edits, but am starting to get frustrated with doing and redoing the same thing, only to be deleted.)
Right now the basic guideline is to not map individual businesses. This explains the disappearance of the banks, grocery stores, etc. A more complete set of guidelines in on the way. As for the gas station in your permalink - there is a lot of back-end work going on with gas stations and right now we're only putting the brand in the name field & leaving the description blank. Please note that to get the address (City) properties to save, you have to create the landmark, save it, then edit address and save again (known bug).DaveHolzmann wrote:What are considered best-practices for determining which Landmarks are appropriate? (I haven't found that (yet) in the Wiki.)
DaveHolzmann wrote:As for Phyllis Ave. split... mea culpa. That was a (brief) venture I took to try to go beyond the parking lot. It was accepted before I learned the guidelines for not splitting a road. (I had figured, since there was a serious barrier between the two lanes of traffic, it made sense to split it, and clarify where/why side streets/drives would/wouldn't be able to make certain turns. I had not read the Wiki about split roads, and had failed to consider the lack of accuracy of GPS tracking. At this point, it seems like it would be more work to un-split it. And, unless there are any URs that I made errors in allowed/disallowed turns, I wonder if it should be changed.
