Thank you for this!

 

Even though reviews are for everyone to see, it is important to make sure that the reviews made (good or bad) are still professional and do not inspire violence or hate in anyway.

Me gusta estar al día con noticias de Local Guides Connect, pero a veces sólo deseo saber la noticia inicial y no todos los posts de contestacines, ya con haber leido la idea inicial quedo bien, pero a veces recibo cientos de correos de contestaciones que deseo parar de recibir porque entonces en vez de enfocarme en aquellas de los moderadores me pierdo en el mar de notificaciones.

He inhabilidado "Email me when someone replies" pero aún así continuo con el problema.

Como dejo de inscribirme de posts, pero solo de aquellas ligas las cuales YA LEÍ Y NO DESEO MAS NOTICIAS ?

 

Gracias anticipadas

Hello,

I would request if someone could walk me through how to submit a violation by a local guide on the content policy and receive notification for the status of a resolution progress by a Google Moderator.

Many thanks and best wishes.

Hi @PromilaRajput

this post is about reporting Inappropriate contents that are posted on the Community. 

 

Please read this post to know how to report a Local Guide for inappropriate contents on google maps: How to identify and report fraud on Google Maps. - Adding @Eire27 to the conversation :-)

Regarding your second question, for privacy concern, Google will never report to anyone the results of the investigations, nor the actions taken

Hello @ermest Sorry, I should have let a moderator answer the question. I know that Google would not notify anybody about result of enquiry etc. I was just trying to be helpful and make the answer as simple as possible. I will leave it to the professionals in future, I never usually answer such questions. Regards, Orla

@FinnAndreasT - If your question related to Street View in particular, I would recommend raising it on the Street View board which you would have access to with your Street View status. I will also tag one of the SV moderators to assist you: @SonyaN, @Yohanad, @VicL1

Thanks to give a good suggestion . It's  helpful.
