State Manager

Postby PalmettoC » Tue Dec 25, 2012 6:09 pm

For those who have expanded areas of responsibility, maybe you can help me with this. I asked about being an AM for my whole state (since we have huge chunks that no one seems to be taking care of) and was told send them the permalinks that I wanted. No problem, but does anyone know of an easier way to select everything at one time and send it to them rather than hundreds of permalinks? I noticed that there is someone in the bordering state where there area seems to follow along the state's border (which is what I want to do). Is there a way to use something like the landmark tool, outline the state, and send that info to them, so I would stay just in my state. I wish I could zoom out further, at least that would cut down on some of the permalinks!

Here is an example of what I am referring to:

Either they did it some other way, or they spent hours and hours to get it that precise!

Alan suggested there was a much more efficient way.

Fill out the Google docs form over and over and over with 4 different permalinks at a time. But make sure you clear out each permalink and put in a new one.

Yes, but you need to make sure you add the note to replace all current AM area with the new lat/lon-defined one. There are known issues with permalink-based AM areas+lat/lon-based area. Not sure why, but doing it the "clean" way works reliably.

I normally use the google docs form...no room for comments in there.

Also, just so I understand correctly, I do four permalinks at the four corners of the area I want to manage, and ask for the whole thing in the center to be assigned?

Use the same contact info as before, submit 4 lat/lon coordinates of a rectangle/parallelogram (no fancy shapes) and ask that they replace your current AM areas with the one single one.
