Re: hayin ojo sabon gari, zaria

Welcome to Local Guides @officialumaryusuf there are lots of ways to contribute that will help your community. I'll move this to the monthly intro post.
 
Contributing on Maps
 
The best ways to contribute and get points are

 

  • Add new places
  • Add meaningful quality photos to places
  • Edit places to update them to correct information.
  • Review and rate places you’ve experienced and tell us about them
  • Add photos to places you visit, most places deserve two to three photos, one of the outside of the place, one of the inside and perhaps a product shot. Some places may deserve more such as large stores, tourist attractions or cultural landmarks.

While contributing is a lot of fun and rewarding, I always caution people about growing in points too quickly. Organic growth a little at a time is always best. Those  who shoot up like rockets sometimes are making low quality contributions and may have contributions removed with a subsequent loss of points.
 
For everything you contribute, always think to yourself, would I find what I'm about to add useful? If the answer is yes then go ahead and do it, otherwise think about holding back.
 
Never review places you have not personally visited or used.
Good luck in your journey as a Local Guide.
 
Contributing on Connect
 
Whether you want to share or offer Travel Advice, share photos and stories of your favourite discoveries, talk about photography or talk about Maps and mapping or maybe you like to organise Meetups like photo walks or geowalks or foodcrawls there is a board here for you. Remember that Connect isn't a general social network, socialising as a Local Guide is important but please try and stay on topic. There are loads of great tips in this forum Helpdesk for how to get the most out of Connect. Remember to always uphold the Core Values of Connect.

If you haven't already consider introducing yourself on this post

Re: Introduce Yourself - June 2018

Hello,

Greetings from the sunshine state. I'm currently located in the Space Coast of Florida. I've been a guide for a bit and have enjoyed uploading pics, reviews, answering questions, etc.

What I like about being a guide is the ability to add that human touch to help others find out opinions about local places and services, as well as correct contact information and hours for businesses to avoid someone going somewhere and being disappointed by wrong info.

My favorite place by far is NYC. I love it there, in the spring, in the winter, in the summer, the city is always alive yet different and definitely always up to something. Sometimes it's a little too much, but you try and keep up the pace.

 

Random fact about me: I'm a little afraid of dark or metallic toilets LOLOLOL

Introduce Yourself

  1. Name: Prashant Chauhan
  2. Location: New Delhi
  3. What I love about being a Local Guide: Via this platform, I can share my journey with all the people and share the story so that they can take benefit from it and can enjoy their trip/journey/etc. It's a platform where I can know about the other places too. Through this, I can share the various ways that how I communicate with others at a particular place or so on.
  4. My favourite cuisine to explore I love spicy Indian food. Rice plays a main role in my diet Without rice, my diet/Food is not complete. I like Curry rice, Mixed daal (Split Black gram+Split Bengal gram) with rice (My mom cooks this in a very delicious form. I can come from another planet to have it.). I'm die hard fan of this recipe.IMG_7786.png
  5. Fun fact about me:  I love to travel a lot. Maybe the reason is my father is Indian government's teacher. So he was transferred to various places in India, especially Uttarakhand state. So me and my other family members (Mom, Dad, Me, My sister) also used to go with him. Now I have it in my blood. I can't stay in one place for a long time. So I keep travel whereas in my budget. 
Live like a free bird.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hallo @riderprashant

 

Warm Welcome to Official Connect Local Guides Community

 

 Before to start here are some useful information’s

First you can introduce yourself in current July 2018 thread (Each month a new one is started)

 If you've a question, before to contribute on Connect maybe a Local Guide already asked and received answers.

    • Then think to use Search Fieldto check (in the top right hand corner).
    • You can even use keywordsaccording to your request (As you will type Connect will show you several suggestions linked to words you enter).

Of course as Local Guide you have full access to all forums to share and contribute.

    • Always choose the good forum to post in order to get best feedbacks.
    • Give a clear and complete title to your post if you want Local Guides to read it and reply!
    • To be in touch with a Local Guide simply mention him/herusing @+Username in your post in order to warn it -Connect will send her/him a notification- (Typing @ in your post will allow you to see all Local Guides who contributed to your post).
    • Never share personal information’s on Connect (think to use private message if needed).

As Local Guide you can also create a Google+ page to start a Local Guides Community in locality you stay in.

 

 Practice does make perfect

and remember active involvement promotes learning: we learn by doing.

 

 Now you're ready to fly ;)

Thanks.

Thank you for giving me the best present today!

 

Knowing that some of my random thoughts year(s) ago can still be helpful is very delighting.
