[Page Update] Places

Postby CBenson » Tue Sep 20, 2016 7:12 pm

Before the wazeopeadia project resulted in the USA wazeopedia, there were many (IMO) good proposals that went nowhere as global consensus was sought. Can we now implement these suggestions in the USA wazeopeadia?

For example, there was this discussion about Area-Point Combinations and Naming. The only non-US voice in that thread questioned whether this should be global guidance and the proposal was left waiting for other countries to weigh in. Is there a reason not to now move that discussion to this forum and make the changes to the Places page in the USA wazeopedia?

No, the premise of the USA wazeopedia is to eliminate the endless waiting for global approval on updates and streamline, and expedite the process within local wikis while not negatively affecting other countries as these pages are searchable in other countries local wikis.
I'd recommend moving the topic here if it was solely USA related, or summarizing here with a link to the original topic and checking for USA consensus/champ approval.

Its a bit hard to tell if what is solely USA related. I'd be happy to merge the prior topic here if appropriate.

The original discussion was raised to revise the guidance on "combined naming for area-point combinations to explain the idea more clearly, provide examples and to have it mirror actual practice more closely. Much of this was considered in conjunction with our efforts to standardize names of retail chains."

The Proposed Update was created at that time with respect to the existing global places pages.

Does anyone have any suggestions or objections with regard to revising this guidance as proposed for the US?

I'm hearing no objections to updating the US wiki, to correspond to the Proposed Update.

Silence implies consent...let's do it! ;)

Seriously, though. We may have to update this AND how we map malls in general (i.e. to the fenceline) soon™ based on the parking lot initiative, but still that is no reason not to implement the change for the time being. Beauty of a wiki document is that it is a living document. Always open to changes to meet with the current plans and policies.

I've made a small update to the are/point table to accommodate the new hospital & Doctor categories.

Yep, there are plenty of "Hospitals" out there that are not full fledged Hospitals with Emergency or Urgent Care capabilities. That addition will help clarify to new users (and some of us seasoned users) that not all hospitals should get the "Hospital" category.

Please do not put "Hospitals" FIRST. Folks will stop reading there. Try, "Clinics, medical hospitals, and only those hospitals which do not offer urgent or emergency medical care . . ."
