That's fine, but for the editors who don't mind taking the extra steps it would be nice to know exactly how.

I'm still less inclined to spend my time correcting the location multiple times when you can get the correct location under the waze tab.

Instant still returns results exclusively from Google, so where the Google marker is is highly relevant. Whether Places will be matched with Google results at some point in the future, when that happens is unknown and likely not for some time.

Sorry I can't really offer any new opinions, I haven't been map editing much since I started my new job. I'm still a user though, every day. ^_^

I don't find the guidance as relevant with the current places feature. I'm still not sure how the search really uses the places yet, but I typically adjust the places rather going to Google at this point to correct destination errors.

We need to revisit this subject and page. The current location is not in a good place. I'm not sure if this page still warrants its own page and should be moved as a whole, or should be edited first, or whether it should be parted out to other pages.

I'm going to re-read it today and would appreciate others taking a look and come back to discuss how to treat it.

Some (most) street address changes publish immediately, but I have had some that triggered a review, and some of those have been denied.

Any time I've tried to move a business, it's gone to review.

In my experience, at least at this point in my Map Maker experience, it seems street address changes are published immediately whereas business location changes require review.

Sometimes a bot comes in and approves stuff, apparently. I don't know too much about it but I do see some approvals go through faster than others. It could also depend on the significance of the change, history of past changes, etc. If it's the first change on an address that was auto-generated, they may auto-approve it, for instance, and then request approval for changes after that. Or they might compare with another database and if similar enough, auto-approve. Who knows!

I wanted to add that most of my changes in Google are taking effect immediately. In fact, I received a email from a requester asking how to change an address location. I provided instructions how to change the address in Mapmaker. They responded that they had changed the location in Mapmaker. I saw the email within half and hour, looked in Google maps saw the pin had moved, tried routing in waze and the route was corrected. Not sure when Google requires approval and when it doesn't, but some of the corrections can take effect very quickly.
