Request for Renaming of a City Form

Postby Dave2084 » Fri Dec 14, 2012 12:41 pm

To keep track of the number of requests for renaming a city a new form has been created:
Before requesting the renaming of a city make sue you have read the guidance in the Waze UK Wiki on city naming: http://world.waze.com/wiki/index.php/How_to_label_cities_(United_Kingdom)

Cities may require renaming for a number of reasons, some examples are:
1. Removal of the (county) suffix for unique cities.
2. Consolidation of duplicated names for the same city with/without the (county) suffix.
3. Spelling mistakes.
4. Case errors (e.g all CAPS).
5. Removal of city blur where two different cities with the same name are linked.

Tip: You can use http://gazetteer.co.uk/ to find towns, cities and duplicates

It may take some time for large cities and towns to be renamed as this is only done infrequently by Waze, smaller settlements may be handled by Country Managers as time permits.
