Unable to add new place

Post by usa_6vw4xcxy
Hello,

I'm not able to add a new place to the map. But from what I read on the FAQ I should be able to. https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/Canada ... pdate_FAQs

The place I am trying to add is this one: https://g.page/greatwhitecarandtruckwash?share

Thanks!

Hi, I'm also an editor in Calgary and I just approved the car wash you added. You did a nice job of adding in details. The only thing I added was a google link which can help with anyone searching for the place.

Thanks Dave!

I tried adding the Google link but it kept giving me errors. I'm glad you could do it!

What did they say the reasoning was? Were you throttled or restricted from adding due to too many reject place submissions?

I’ve taken matter up directly with Waze by email and await detailed response.

As a very seasoned, senior editor since 2011, I approve/reject places and in all my history never had a single personal reject. This has come about mysteriously. Would you not agree that it should likely take a more senior or level editor to reject a place edit of mine? I never received a single reject in my entire editor history, never mind the demeaning conclusion you jump to - “throttled or restricted from adding due to too many reject place submissions”. That kind of comment is out of order.
I was not accusing you of anything, so I don't understand how that is demeaning or out of order. I was merely offering an idea. Probably best to continue contact with Waze support directly for it though.

Edit: the original post was not from you either, unless the forum got confused maybe?
