Landmarks that were Hotels are still showing as Hostels now that they have changed to places.

I'm still waiting on some answers back from Waze so not much progress yet on the wiki.

Watch this space ... "soon" :D

What format should be used for phone numbers on UK places?
National/International? Spaced/unspaced?

Really need to get to grips with the wiki for this. So little time at the moment though :-(

A small update: Waze finally came back to me recently and confirmed that they would NOT be adding any additional place categories as discussed at the UK Meet. :-(

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... ;)

It seems even this isn't clear to some. I've seen what looks like a picture of a TV inside someones bedroom.

Boo.

However, they have added 'Parking for customers' as a service for each place which we did ask for. :D
Perhaps we tick this and start to remove all those customer car parks that seem to be springing up everywhere but shouldn't actually be mapped as not public car parks.
