Somebody destroys Almaty maps!

Recently I see that many POI in Almaty (KAZAKHSTAN) had changed their names to ridiculous ones. I understand that there are idiots who make that for fun. But who APPROVES those changes? Can you Google Maps people track that?Screen Shot 2019-01-09 at 21.21.01.pngScreen Shot 2019-01-09 at 21.21.19.pngScreen Shot 2019-01-09 at 21.24.11.png

Re: Somebody destroys Almaty maps!

Thanks for your answer and tip @ermest! But I can't report a LP damaging the Maps because I can't see who is doing this.... I changed at least 15 POI fake names but I doubt I will find them all. What if they won't limit their actions by city limits?

Maybe @NadyaPN as GM will help stop that

Re: Somebody destroys Almaty maps!

Of course you don't know the name of the "spammers", I agree

 

One of the option in the post that I linked to you is to report the issue here, like you did @FeelGood

 

I wanted to be sure that you were aware about different procedures (that I already shared to you long time ago), and I tagged a CM for you just for having an help

And on top of all that, when I change idiotic names back to normal, the system rejects it (Not Applied). So we stuck now with "Naruto Uzumaki school", "Kunikida Hanamaru school", "Ricardo Milos school" and so on. @ermest @NadyaPN

Hi @FeelGood,

 

Thanks for reporting. We are on this.

 

Would you mind providing a Google Maps link to all the hijacked POI`s that you have found?

 

I understand the situation is frustrating, but i would like to ask you to keep the good tone on Connect.
