    Re: Map Maker Bot FAIL

    Challenge: Why did the automated BOT make that edit?

    Full disclosure: I have no idea what the answer is

    Colan it's really hard to read. Can you give a link? Or take close up of comment section?

    Hi Linda, I tried a few things but something is over riding it in the back end. cropping it to a “medium” size, instead of full size.

    Re: Map Maker Bot FAIL

    Thanks Colan. Was it more than 700px wide? That could do it.

    Re: Map Maker Bot FAIL

    Thanks Colan. I can see now.

    Love the new name the bot gave Citibank and I agree with heckler, seems like a good place for Happy Hour.

    Re: Map Maker Bot FAIL

    It's not a bot, that was a user who wasn't logged in that submitted that edit. Probably for the fun of it like the guy that submitted an edit for a local high school to change it to a dating service.
