Re: Google Local Guides ID Card

Great idea! I was once reported and questioned by Mall Security for taking pictures of a restaurant inside the Mall. It all turned out okay once I explained and demonstrated what/why I was doing, but it would be nice to be able to show some sort of Official ID with a picture on it.

I also experienced that before. Having an ID for an official Google Local Guide would validate our tasks and prevent scenarios like these.

Re: ID card for Local Guides

hi @RakibulI, there is currently no official ID card provided by Google for Local Guides. Please do keep in mind that the nature of Local Guides program is volunteer based. You're not in any way working for Google or employed by the company.

 

Can I ask the intention of having a Local Guides ID card? Perhaps we can try to find an alternative solution.

Re: ID card for Local Guides

@iyudhi I would like to add importance  to have ID card of Local Guides: Like

 

1. Visiting some historical / important place, most of the time authority required identity card /  business card.

2. People / Place where I can get permission if I have an ID.

3.When people don't understand Local Guides and Disagree to share anythings.

4.If we have card, will be able to understand that we are volunteer of Google Map  and doing good for you & your Country .

 

Most of us know Google / Google Maps but not Local Guides much.

Hope you understand my opinion.

agree with @MohammadGM's points

 

i have faced with some of situations to show an identification. most of time showing my local guide profile n contributions works fine. but sometimes they need physical identifications  in order to issue a pass or give details about a place :)

Re: ID card for Local Guides

for my self i faced too much problem when i went to some places and i wanted to take picture and i have been kicked out or i am not allowed to take pic. , this ID or any thing just something proving that we are working to make world more simple . as i said in too many threads Google don't want to give anything to anyone they just want us to work for them and they share all things that Google did it not anyone else .

i have to mention that Newtons third Law say :

 
When one body exerts a force on a second body, the second body simultaneously exerts a force equal in magnitude and opposite in direction on the first body.

so iam working to help Google and make their map app looks better and better, they have to respect what we are doing and offer us things that i need for their works like visiting places taking pictures of places its been may be 6 or 7 i don't know iam working on map maker . so don't tell us volunteer volunteers we know that and we believe it to work for .

finally i don't expect anything like that from Google.

 

Best Regards .
