Could we have a better definition of what a "ghost" gas station is? Obtusely, I'm not understanding this statement:

If you discover a gas station appearing in Waze that does NOT have an associated landmark at that location, then you can report it here for HQ to fix manuall


...appearing the editor? The client? What would a ghost gas station look like in either case?

Every time I try to remove gas stations that have been demolished, Waze won't let me. I feel like sending in pictures of the piles of dirt and asking if they'd like to fill their cars with it.

I have seen the same thing. They show up in the app but not the editor . Hope this goes away when the freeze period is over.

I've submitted a couple in my area. Two have been around for months/years, and another just reappeared yesterday. It seems that with the landmarks being frozen, we're getting some long-closed and long-deleted gas station landmarks back.

I have seen gas stations that have shown up in the list with no address, however when I go to the map editor all the information is there. Is this a "ghost" station or an issue where I would need to refresh the app's map?

I guess I should have explained with more details. When I go to report a gas price I am given a list of gas stations around my location. Most will have addresses listed underneath the gas station name, however occasionally there are gas stations with no address listed. This can be confusing as there are often more than 1 of the same gas station brand in the same area.

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):

Does it have an editor rank lock or is it a save error?

Also, do you have a link to the mystery gas station?

I found several of them in my country (Malaysia) and all of them are from SHELL brand. Could it be one of the base map imported into Waze? The location and name are consistent with the one provided in SHELL website.
