[Form] Ghost Gas Stations

Post by Timbones
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:

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.

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.

The addresses don't appear in the list, only when you go view the "Info" for a gas station.
It's a bug in the client.

When a gas station appears in the client, but not in the editor, so it cannot be deleted. Waze will need to fix these, via this form. I'll clarify the original post.
