Is anyone else noticing a change to the "Suggest an Edit"?

So...I just received an email letting me know that my report of the duplicate listing worked. I was all excited, and thought I saw a unicorn. Then I checked the listings, and they are not merged :/ Both are still live.

I'll check in a couple days to see what happens.

Google told me this is a test they're doing but "report change of business" is to find out if the user implied to create a new place or change the name of the existing business.

Seems like an attempt at improving the reporting systems, since we lost access to map maker I'd take anything.

@Cherie Dickey I have a lot of success with those more complicated reports by sending it to the GMB Twitter team. They recently added more support staff so you can usually get an answer in a day. If you provide them all the evidence up front they can quickly merge, move, or remove pages that are incorrect or duplicate so the issue is resolved in 48-72 hours.
