Why?

113% ?????


Ah LOL was looking at your link, not at the table. Yeah and Brasil was also wrong, someone posted the link to the LPG stations and put that value into the total, giving an impressive 919%! antigerme?

According to the graph above it seems there are plenty of them closing down in the real world and hence the value on the spreadsheet will most probably be floating above and beyond 100% :D It will never be zero off.

In Portugal I have the official list of stations and I've been following it and know the amount of specific brands that are still missing on waze (also missing: 48h per day), but from time to time I see double landmarks created by newbie users albeit I don't understand how it happens besides stubbornness - my landmarks are snapped to the roads around so they are as big as possible and cover the whole station land, and some newbie editors think that the landmark should cover only the strict rain ceiling above the gas pumps, so they see my landmark locked and create a new smaller one above it. I've seen this only happening less than half a dozen times and the editors understood the mistake, but I've said this just to explain that it's indeed possible to get more than 100% due to these duplicate stations.

There is also the possibility of ghost stations or DB corruption ;) see my direct champs thread where I have two stations on the client but only one on the map, for many months now.

Is it possible to have brands list selector filled for Korea before gas prices feature will be enabled?
Where should I send the list of brands?
Thanks!
Yuri.


Yes, prepare the list and send to your waze community manager and orit so they can add the list to the editor and you can set the gas station landmarks to the right brand.

Hey there, fellas :)
We had the same issue in Serbia, this is how I solved it:
In order to get the intel about that, feel free to contact your Community Manager (not Country Manager!) and prepare the following - the list of top 10 biggest cities with permalinks of their areas. He'll investigate it further.

Hope I helped :mrgreen:

It's looks like to me that this GSheet is editable to everyone, so, it's your turn! :)

It is, but only to the allowed contributors :) About Waze GSheet... Working on validating data before we start dealing with it :)

You have it easier than us, you have to map another 1459 to get to 70%...
In México we need 4696.

Hello Orit,

I posted a few new Gas Brands in your form and some of them are still not showing.
Any chance you can update the list?

Thanks,
Hagay.
