A new one for me, someone just gave me their phone number and asked me to call them so they could give me "a detailed message" about "what's going on". Maybe after that we could meet up for drinks.

I know there used to be a Naval radio station that broadcase bulletins in morse code on short waves and medium waves. The call sign was NSS, but I don't know any thing about kennels or Nero.
I think I'll cut my losses and mark it 'unknown' and close it.

Maybe it's a numbers station......... :cry:

It's worth your time to try, though. Google results are being offered for first-try for POI searches now; Map Maker often does work. And, while yes, your first few Map Maker changes will not be changed without review, once you've had a couple dozen accepted, they start to publish immediately — first address results, then POI results. So the more you try, the more effective you become.

Occasionally Map Maker will bug out completely (at least for me) when I'm trying to move an Address marker, but there is the alternative route of reporting bad data through Google Maps itself. Once when Map Maker bugged and didn't let me move an address, I (1) reported a bug with Map Maker, and (2) reported a map problem on Google Maps. I'm not sure which one triggered it, but I got an email a couple weeks later saying my change was made, and it was.

Yelp and Yellowpages aren't really worth your time; Bing isn't available anymore. I can't really judge with Foursquare, since I am a SuperUser over there, so I can move Foursquare markers no problem. But those tend to be accurate anyway.

Many states are replacing their particular landmark guidance pages with the US Places guide. Maybe contact your regional coordinator — I feel like this is going to / should happen countrywide, but some states' wikis haven't gotten around to it.

Hah!

The one in Covington, though? I just fixed that a couple weeks ago! The Google marker is in the right place now...

Allow me to translate.

"curious I'm busting my butt pedal to the metal when I can ,how fast (mph)do you time ETA?"

"curious" = I'm just curious,

"I'm busting my butt pedal to the metal when I can" = I am driving as fast as I can when traffic permits

"how fast (mph)do you time ETA?" = What speed do you use to measure the ETA over a known distance?

Either he's beating the ETA there and wondering what the reference speed is to account for the disparity, or the ETA is actually accurate for him and he's wondering if Waze expects him to be speeding.

Haha, my old TomTom was very pessimistic about arrival times. I once beat it by some five hours or so on a long trip. Although, the Garmin I had before that was almost eerily accurate.

Hmmmm, although isn't it true that the Shell and Chevron logos are typically in title case, whereas "TEXACO" is generally in all caps? :D
