Alanoftheberg: don't fix this :)

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sat Oct 22, 2011 7:31 am

Received an update request this evening from a user who has never responded to any emails requesting follow up to "wrong driving instructions" and "turn not allowed" without any included details.

"AlanoftheBerg do not fix this, you fix things incorrectly."

I laughed a bit and then thought about how I could have pissed someone off so much. :?

Folks, it's been amusing and troubling for me at the same time. I'm glad remmerde has popped into the forums to say his/her piece too. I've sent off a PM and hope to make amends and come to a good understanding. Thanks for the words you've written in support. I like points, but as you know, I can spend 15 minutes arduously aligning several miles of a single segment roadway to aerials and GPS tracks which gets me one point when I could be just turning segments to 2-way and closing update requests without any care. Which I don't.

With that written, I'm going to lock this thread and we can all move on.

Probably another editor. I'm never very good at leaving user requests alone for long so I must sometimes hit someone's notes to themselves. Still, if they don't respond to emails it's tough.

You get an email every time an editor closes one of your update requests. Alan couldn't email you directly as you have clearly left no details in order for that to happen!


Could this be a problem with the default wording of the email?

Could be, I think it was July when we realised UR emails were not being sent which would coincide with this user's join date. Depends how long we're talking though I guess.

In any case, it doesn't deserve the aggression in either the latest UR or subsequently in this thread. Alan is one of, if not the, most respected users on these boards.

Of not responding after few weeks, it's closing without change...

But i experienced some problems with UR from client...don't know if it's 3.0 related...if you report a map problem (only did general error) it's not giving the extra info in cartouche. I'm sure there was info in all cases.
