If "Bill's Gas" sells "Chevron" gasoline, does "Bill's Gas" go into the first name field, then "Chevron" into the brand field?

We're working on guidance at this time, and there is a thread in the US forum. If Bills always sells Chevron, then yes. Otherwise, unbranded. Many box stores (Sams, Costco, Fred Meyer, Winco, Safeway, etc.) may use different brands in the same week. These would also be set to unbranded.

You have a missing page link to "Gas Stations" going to http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php?titl ... &redlink=1
Is that a page you are working on, or did you have a typo in the address?

It's a placeholder. I don't have time to build the page. Maybe it needs a "page not yet built" note?

The advantage of the red link is that we can easily find it in the future with the internal Wiki special page searches. The problem is users will get confused.

Alternately we can create the page with a note just saying "more to come" and then add a template we can create called {{NeedPage}} or something like that. Then we can search for where that template is used and know those are the pages that need to be created.

I can do that later tonight for this one in question
