Town naming problem

Postby LimeyRat » Tue Dec 10, 2013 1:23 pm

On the attached screenshot the reference to Clinton should be removed, this is actually Clinton Twp. The town marked Clinton (2) should be Clinton, this is the Town of Clinton. Clinton Twp is already marked, this is correct.

Sorry, don't know how to include a permalink to the area, unless https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-74.86927&lat=40.63262&zoom=1&layers=TBFTFFTTTTTTTFTTTTTTTTTTT&env=usa works.

OK, I went through and removed most of the ones I added. Sorry about that, RTFM!

As I'm going through my town (Clinton) should I remove other landmarks that should not be there? What's the correct etiquette for doing so, should I create a topic and list what was done, create a topic for an are manager to review?

I'm trying to pick this back up and go through all the streets in both Clinton and Clinton Twp to make sure they are correct. Unfortunately there's quite a number of them, and although I'm fixing what I can, there are a lot that are locked.
Two questions: Is there an easier way than going street by street, segment by segment? Can I just make a list of the corrections and should I post that here or send it to 'someone'?

Before we address that, please take a look this permalink. These red roads are considered not complete. Red roads normally do not show on the client (but there some occasion they do). You need to add city and if applicable street name, otherwise, check "none"

Also, we do not map small parking lots and individual business like you did here

Please read wiki for best practices for parking lots and NJ Guidelines for the Landmarks.
Let me know if you have any questions.

I would let them know like I did to you. Most of them are from a new user. They need guidance to our "Best practices wiki and guidelines."
