I have checked three Hotels in Walsall - and a few in Birmingham. They are all categorised as 'Hostels'. :roll:
A global fix may be preferable to us all hunting them down and changing them!

At least it's not just me! I've posted about it on the main release thread.

I'm confused (it's easily done :P )

What is Waze telling me is new? Everything seems to match what's already set? :?

I've seen quite a few otherwise good photos that have number plates clearly readable. I asked about it on the main thread as the client doesn't give any guidance to users, yet the generic Wiki page states faces and licence plates are in the "should not show" category and was told other countries requirements are different. The UK Wiki page has a holding message. Is there UK-specific guidance for Places and specifically what's not allowed in photos? Instinct tells me it's probably best not to approve them given Google Street View blurs them out.

I think I remember reading on the other thread (it's up to 19 pages already!) that some of the beta test data wasn't removed before the update went live.

The guidelines on what photos are acceptable might be a bit of an issue - no faces, car licence plates etc. I didn't spot any guidance in the client other than "Show the exterior of this place, so Wazers can easily spot it when they arrive".

So I guess the blurry steering wheels, cats curled in baskets, green BT phone cabinets, rubbish bins, are gonna get rejected... ;)

Well lets make this the official thread for now and yes, parking is going to be the biggie! We really had hoped to have a little more time to digest the changes before they were released but it seems we'll have to run with this for now.

The general guidance for Places, linked to above, should be used as a guideline for now, bearing in mind anything that might contradict the UK-specific landmark rules we already have.
Drastic changes should be avoided for the time being at least until they have been discussed here.
And please avoid calling anyone out if something seems off. Imports from the old landmarks could be wrong (I have a running track near me marked a a beach) and new systems/guidelines always take time to bed in and filter down.
