[Form] Ghost Gas Stations

Postby Timbones » Thu Dec 05, 2013 5:32 pm

If you discover a gas station appearing in the Waze app that does NOT have an associated Place in the editor at that location, then you can report it here for HQ to fix manually:

Hi!

I tried to search the forum for more information about this Ghost Gas Stations form, but didn't find anything. Can we use this form in all countries or is it a UK specific form?

Regards,
Sverker

It was originally created for the UK, which seems to suffer from very many ghost stations, but could theoretically be useful to other countries too.

Once HQ have started their process of fixing these, I'll make the form more internationally visible.

Thanks! We try to send in the ones we have. As far as I know there are only three stations so far. Two identified in May last year (reported to support) and one now.

I completed and sent a form about a ghost Shell garage on 19th December. I understand there may be delays in fixing these, but I have had no feedback or acknowledgement at all. A short message back would be good as it is never certain that these online forms are actually sent successfully.

Here's a permalink to the Shell garage (and ancient UR):

Your submission is in the form, but nothing's been done about it yet. I'll change the settings of the form so that everyone can see the submissions so far. I've crossed out a couple duplicates.

Update HQ have dealt with all of the ~35 reported stations so far, except for 3 they couldn't find (see link above). Specifically, they've removed any gas stations at those locations which did not have a matching Landmark in the editor.

If you find any more ghost stations, please submit them via the form.

Good to hear - only took 18 months to get these fixed!

18 months can still be defined 'soon'.
