Thx for the feedback, fredo! Drive thru is not added to any place with the script, for that very reason. Admittedly, some services could occasionally be out of spec for peculiar cases. Perhaps that should be pulled back a bit. At least, I will have an option to turn this off soon. In general the rules need tweaking, and state-based lock levels can be added. I just need the information and it can be made to work. For now, if you don't provide regional or state rules, everything is locked to 3, no higher. I based this on the rules used in every raid I've been in many parts of the US, where complete places were locked to 3. If there is a region that uses lower locks, then that can be adjusted.

The script will not work for R1 editors. Hopefully that prevents the newest of the new from using it, with the hope that by the time they would be able to access the script, they would have some experience with places.

Also, I've been using it privately for a number of weeks on many hundreds of places, checking carefully the results, and except for a few places that had weird CapitaliZation, and the rare unneeded service, it's behaved perfectly well. In other words, I've found a very small reversion rate of any script changes. I guess my point is that even if a new editor applies this script to places without any checking of it's outcome, 99 out 100 places will be improved, maybe 1/00 will have an extra service box or naming issue.

One thought I've had is to restrict certain functions to different levels. phone formatting is pretty benign, but perhaps the more advanced functions could be bumped up to L3+ editors only.

Anyway, I'm happy to add regional/state info. Feel free to DM/PM me at any time and I'll get it into the next version.

Cheers

Indeed, in Tampa where I've used this the PURs are numerous!! Used to get a handful a day, now many dozens. However the URs have decreased as we've added thousands of properly placed places, so I guess it balances out!

Agreed, it needs some refining. I have updated the script, and for now I am turning off the automatic services code until a preference pane and standardized rules can be discussed. Since this started as a personal project, I was familiar with what is added when, and could make changes; clearly as this becomes more used outside of my laptop, the script needs to be less aggressive with services.

A few bugs also have been squashed.

Programmers: I am putting together an informal dev team to help write the different features into the script. We have lots of ideas, need more hands to write pieces of code and test things. Please PM or SlackDM me with your email if you are a js/html programmer and would like to join the team in a GHO group. Thx!!

New Version posted.

--A number of bug fixes.
--Default title casing is weaker, so it will leave places like "HealthForum" with the capital F. However, a banner option to force the Strong Title case will pop up which you can then press Yes to force "Healthforum" to be set.
--Fixed a few place details that were wrong.
--Services are back, for R3+ editors: There's a preferences tab, where you can check the option to enable common services
--Some new features in the message banners, keep an eye out for them.

Thx. We are working on a more complete version that includes over 600 places, should have a big update in the near future. Suggestions, bugs, and feedback always welcome here or by PM/DM.

Thx!

I will look into that. I don't use ff usually. Maybe something there has changed. Thx for the heads up

I will take another look. When I tried it on FF earlier it seemed to be working but it was only a quick check. I will check what version of FF too. Thx

I can't replicate the problem. I tried on Mac with FF 42.0 and it seems to work normally, edit counts advance. Can I suggest the following:
complete uninstall and reinstall;
disable all other scripts to see if there's a conflict;
Check the console to see if there are any error messages.

Feel free to PM/DM and we can try to see what's happening.
