One more who's never heard of the GB English version of WME. One thing I do notice is that Places is back to being called Landmarks in the menu.

Do we know if there are any other differences (apart from Category names)?

@ Krixera - can I suggest you delete this and re-post to the main post, linked above? This is the UK forum you've posted to. Thanks.

New WME and Places (UK)

Postby woodvale » Tue May 27, 2014 3:55 pm

I see we now have a new version of WME which appears to include Places in lieu of Landmarks.

For those in the UK who rarely look at other parts of the forum, have a look at this post and then have a read of the wiki linked to from there for a full explanation.

I can confirm it's not been, as I just found another of mine.

There was a 'lot' of camera issues and categories with the beta, so you may find (myself included) took a lot of pictures in our front room or a hotel room to identify and report bugs. I think I got them all, but do apologise if you find any of mine lurking around!

Shopping and Services could do with a childrens store (e.g. Mothercare) sub-category, and perhaps a phone shop one too given how many of the damn things there are over here now (although these can just about scrape by under the Electronics category, or perhaps even Toy Store...).

I'd also query the placement of some of the sub-categories within both the Outdoors and Natural Features categories - is a farm *really* a natural feature, and if rivers, lakes etc. are all in the latter, why put beaches in the former?

That's a bit too philosophical for the weekend :?

Dave2084 wrote:Surely existing places converted from landmarks should show up in search?


That presumes the conversion process has done its job properly, and we know it hasn't been entirely successful in that regard. I also wonder if the introduction of stop points for places is causing problems with converted landmarks - although the stop point positions in WME seem reasonable for converted landmarks, I wonder if that's an artifact of how the data is processed before display in WME rather than a truly accurate representation of the data being used by the search routine...

Dave2084 wrote:But yes it would be nice if the map would update so that all the new point and area places I added for testing were on the map.


Indeed, and not just for testing places - with the big push to keep the number of URs under control, it'd be nice if we could validate the god knows how many fixes have been implemented for all of those too... Would also help prevent even more new URs being raised for the same problems in the meantime.

I'm at a loss with Searching for POIs within the client (I'm using the beta client currently, BTW), the whole concept of destination Categories has been removed, and searching for Places names as a destination, it's pretty clear that they are not being searched for, making this whole concept pretty useless.

I see this a lot. I have no clue why.
