Alanoftheberg: don't fix this :)

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sat Oct 22, 2011 7:31 am

Received an update request this evening from a user who has never responded to any emails requesting follow up to "wrong driving instructions" and "turn not allowed" without any included details.

"AlanoftheBerg do not fix this, you fix things incorrectly."

I laughed a bit and then thought about how I could have pissed someone off so much. :?

Probably another editor. I'm never very good at leaving user requests alone for long so I must sometimes hit someone's notes to themselves. Still, if they don't respond to emails it's tough.

Of not responding after few weeks, it's closing without change...

But i experienced some problems with UR from client...don't know if it's 3.0 related...if you report a map problem (only did general error) it's not giving the extra info in cartouche. I'm sure there was info in all cases.

So, how did you respond? I'd go with "I only fix things incorrectly when people report things incorrectly" but maybe you're more mature than I am.

Darren!! I just laughed so hard I nearly pissed myself!
@Alan, maybe something for a reply along the lines of "Well, tough shit, I'm the Area Manager here. If you think you can do a better job, get off your arse sitting in the car bitching about my editing and do it your damn self!"
Then sit back and relax with a fag (cig US peeps) and a coffee and have a laugh and a giggle.

Please note, I haven't done this....yet. Been close on 1 but I find dry sarcasm works quite well. :P

The above is a lie. You never emailed me. You simply marked something fixed, as you likely always do, whether or not you actually fix the issue.

I won't stand in the way of your pursuit of your precious points, but when I politely ask you not fix one of my reports, I'd really appreciate it if you'd at least let it sit for...oh, I don't know...more than 4 hours...so that the user who is familiar with and has actually traveled the area can fix it later. Unlike you, I don't give a flip about points; I'd rather see the map quality improved.
