What do I do with a problem "area manager"

Postby xdarkhorsex » Sun Dec 02, 2012 3:59 am

Just a quick question:

What do I do when the "area manager" deletes my changes, even though they are accurate, also will rewrite over the roads I've added by actually driving them so that it'll be under his name? Frustrating.

I've labelled many points of interest only to have them deleted entirely.

How does one know who deleted something?

We need additional explanation from the OP. Everything about the original post shows an unfamiliarity with the editor, wiki, and entire system.

You should "PM" the AM who deleted your landmark and ask for the reason he dit it

What exactly is this supposed to mean?
I don't think you're fully understanding how things work.

first off I have to apologize to legoguy. for some reason I thought someone else was AM.

I'm learning too.

In my "excitement" I also made some errors that needed to be corrected, namely labeling EVERYTHING. I thought the more the better, which is not always true.

everything else can be talked about in pm.

Hello, I am the AM in question; I don't believe I've made any changes here that are against rules, or that are incorrect. There are some roads that I've adjusted based on recent development in the area. If you'd like we can further investigate the issues via PM; I don't make changes so they are "in my name" - I just make changes that I see need to be made based on my travels in the area. I'd be glad to work together to figure these things out.

As for deleting some landmarks, I have deleted some landmarks that, according to the wiki, are not necessary to have mapped, such as very small businesses and parking lots. I've also made some changes to named parking lots - they would show up on the map rather than the business they were near and in that case I simply changed them to unnamed parking lots, and adjusted their boundaries in some cases. - but I do admit I made some of these changes before fully understanding the need for marked parking lots. I apologise if some of these changes appear to be in error.

As for one-way streets, I don't believe I've changed a single one to the other way, except for the street I live on, which is incorrectly mapped in every mapping application *except* Waze now.

The AM's name isn't ADMIN, is it?

Click on the User Control Panel link above and then on the Private messages tab.

Where are you searching for the AM's name?

I haven't tried pm'ing him, not sure how to, I've searched his name but nothing comes up. Yes I am relatively new to this.
I've added many roads and locations that were not mapped (Northern Alberta), corrected many one ways to two way traffic, deleted roads that do not exist anymore, changed streets to primary streets or vise versa only to go back later and see that the changes were reversed by the AM. I do conform to the rules. It's just frustrating, that's all.
