Place Reject Reason

Postby cobra_snake » Wed Jun 29, 2016 1:51 am

How about a feature that lets an editor reject a place with communication of why it was rejected?

The reporter would have the opportunity to fix, correct, learn, and resubmit.

The community would benefit with better place information.

I was just coming on here to ask this same thing.

Although I don't know how easy it would be to let the reporter 'fix' a PUR, rather than just create a new one.

I feel having a reject field that sends to the reporter the reason would be extremely helpful. It would also let the reporter know that there was an actual reason for the rejection, not just someone doing sweeping rejects.

Some form of communication with reports would be nice. Especially on things like "Place details are wrong, gas prices are now $2.17." I do feel bad when I reject 8 or 10 straight from the same person because the pictures have license plate numbers visible.

Last I checked just because a picture displays a license plate number doesn't have to be a reject reason. Though this may have changed.

https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Places#Deter ... ble_Photos

Photos should not show:
    *People's faces - any photo with a fully identifiable face should be removed, or not approved
    *Car license plates - any photo with a fully identifiable license plate should be removed, or not approved
    *Anything which allows a viewer to tie a person to a specific location
    *Any pornographic content, nudity, sexual content or simulation, etc.


I realize I posted the Wiki, and you posted the forum thread, but don't we generally follow the Wiki while it's being discussed?

I'm not too worried about rejecting due to the license plate part because honestly, anything I reject often has multiple reasons anyway. But I agree it is a good idea. Maybe not edit submissions, but at least allow them to improve their future photos due to feedback. Much like we offer to new editors needing guidance.

While I'd prefer an actual text box where I could tell a user why I rejected something, some simple canned responses would be sufficient for most.

"Poor quality photo/taken through windows"
"Place submitted from moving vehicle"
"Place already exists in Waze"
"Invalid or bad update information"
"Detail field not for personal review/commentary on place" (This is becoming more and more common)
"Place marker grossly misplaced/Cannot determine correct location" (My patience for tracking down an errant location, particularly when it lacks the correct street name, no HN, and no other details is rather short)
"Need specific name of business, not general 'Barber' or 'Doctor's Office'" (Big one when someone submits a new place that is an office building with multiple doctors!)

I'd say that would cover the vast majority of bad place submissions/updates.

Bumping this. I think this would be a wonderful addition and might even help users understand what we look for with place submissions. Every Waze user is an editor in some form or fashion anyway so this could only help.
