    When It Comes to Google MapMaker, Don’t Take No for an Answer

    Do you find your edits in Google MapMaker often get denied?
    Ever since Maptivists shed some light on the exploits that were possible using MapMaker, it has been harder and harder to get legitimate changes made. Most of the time I see MapMaker edits get rejected, regardless of their validity. A good example was when I deleted the category “Brewpub” for Noble Ale Works (which you should visit if you are ever in Orange County). It seemed like a pretty non-controversial change, I have been to Noble several times and know for a fact that they don’t serve food. Anyway, a couple of days later I was greeted with this notification:

    Thanks Justin for sharing and Dan for posting.

    Yep persistence pays, especially with MM.

    Additionally you can post in the MM forum or if you know any of the RERs they can often help.

    yes, I have had better success with posting in the MM forum. Especially when Road names are incorrect.

    Inspired me to go back through and spend another hour reporting spammy listings from a business here in Aus.
    Thank you - I think... ;-)

    Good post. It's pretty annoying when you get denied even though you're 99.99% sure you're right. Lesson here is always go into the fight with the data to back it up... or possibly to submit the evidence on the first pass so you don't need to appeal later on.
