I wonder if I could receive a reply from the Local Guides Management team. I am very frustrated!
I am a big contributor to the Google Maps as a Local Guide. Nearly 122,000 points, almost 1,000 full reviews.
However, my efforts are being constantly frustrated by the automatic decision-making for edits.
Here are some examples:
pen-Air Sculpture Museum. It is clearly a typo for Open-Air. I have edited this over 50 times, it is always rejected.
Plaza Virgen del Mar This is wrongly located. I have tried a great number of times to move it to its correct address, which is, believe it or not, actually in the Plaza Virgen del Mar, 300 metres away from Calle Guadiaro Always rejected.
Estepona Playa This means Estepona beach. It is sited several streets inland, I have tried and tried to edit it to the seashore, with no success.
These are just some examples. This morning I have several times tried to add a new shop, including trying on my phone where you can submit photo proof of the existence of the business. Rejected several times.
Earlier this year your video team came and made a video of me and my contributions:
What I would really like would be to have some modest moderation permissions so that I can over-ride the automatic system, and correct errors by other posters.
So, to the Google Maps Local Guides team - how about it? For a dozen years I was a Forum host on a busy forum for teachers with permissions including deleting posts and banning posters. I am a responsible person (a retired High School Principal), and a constant contributor to Google Maps. Please give me moderator permissions.
Looking forward to hearing from you . . .
