Feedback on 2 AMA answers
A couple of things jumped out at me while reading through the last AMA.
First were the responses about Edit reviews. It's clear that they're having a difficult time getting a handle on location edit requests and I suspect this is part of the reason that edits as a whole are so slow to complete review.
My proposal is to separate location edit reviews from title/description edit reviews. In many cases it's pretty clear that someone is just trying to correct a typo but including the location edit complicates things.
The other thing that I found interesting was the response about candidate photos being added to existing portals when the candidate is marked as a duplicate. Krug's response was "I am told that, the photo from a duplicate candidate is added to the existing Portal to give credit to the other player(s) who have submitted the same candidate."
Perhaps the response email should indicate that this has happened? Perhaps the agent should receive 500AP as if they had submitted an additional photo?
Additionally Krug said "At this time, there are no plans of changing this but we would love to hear any concerns you may have with this feature."
The biggest concern is that some candidates marked as duplicate are not actually duplicates and there is no mechanism for removing photos from portals once they are added. In some cases the added photos are of something entirely different than the existing portal.
I have 2 examples locally. In the first, the extra photo appears to be in the general vicinity but is definitely not the same thing
In the second example, I have no idea where the extra photo was taken. It's almost certainly nowhere near the object.
