    Post MapMaker Announces A New Bot to Fix Map Maker - Plus Page Inconsistencies

    Last week, the Google MapMaker team announced (thanks to Forum TC Treebles for a heads up on this) a new bot whose purpose is to help fix Map Maker – Plus Page inconsistencies. The bot is called the “Mapmaker Syncer”.

    Re: MapMaker Announces A New Bot to Fix Map Maker - Plus Page Inconsistencies

    Hi Linda,

    I noticed another Google Map Maker bot that I have not seen before called 'Google Automated Bounds Fixer'.

    It has a GMM profile too! http://www.google.com/mapmaker?gw=66...38658923733808

    Actually, here I just found where Geoff (a Level 6 'Regional Expert Reviewer') lists many of the new Bot names and Profile URLs:

    Discussion on "Giving Map Maker Automated Systems Names"
    https://groups.google.com/d/msg/goog...k/IsnrWWBeEqsJ

    And here is the announcement by Google, on August 8th, that they are naming the Bots for clarity sake:

    Giving Map Maker Automated Systems Names

    https://groups.google.com/forum/#!to...sion%5B1-25%5D

    Google says "... in an attempt to increase transparency, we also recognize the need to identify our Automated Systems accounts and over the next few weeks will be working to give them unique names [...] This will make it easier for you to report issues with the Automated Systems as well as see the good they do."

    Thanks Russ, yes Google told TCs they were going to start naming bots and being more transparent and I've seen a few in the wild but have not had time to post about it, so thanks much for those resources!
