How to report errors
« on: January 08, 2016, 04:54:20 am »
To make this as easy as possible for the highway data managers to find threads referencing states/countries they are actively maintaining, please follow the following standards when naming threads:

1. Always start with the region name(s). It's the code you use for your user list file entry.
2. Add the subject of the error. Please just generalize that part and put the meat and bones in the main part of the thread. ;)

Examples:
  • - If you wanted to report an error in Pennsylvania, you would title the thread subject as "PA: US-22 rerouted in Reading" (without quotes).
  • - The 2 letter postal abbreviation is only used for US states and Canada. Other codes are longer, for instance: "FRA-ARA: A410 renumbered to A411" (without quotes).
  • - It's also possible to indicate more than one region: "CA/NV: I-80 border moved" (without quotes).
  • - If you wanted to request a new waypoint you need for mapping your travels, please indicate it in the title: "ID: ID40 point request" (without quotes).

This will allow us to identify which threads are areas we maintain and respond to them faster. :)
Please note that this is a volunteer project and it's possible that we don't respond as fast as you expect.

Don't hesitate on reporting issues. It's better to report more than what is relevant than reporting one issue too less. And we can rename the thread name if required.

When a reported error is fixed or it is clarified that it isn't an error, the topic is marked solved and moved to the Solved Highway data updates board. It might take some time till the change will live on the site.

When the region's maintainer has looked into it but needs more evidence, the topic gets the icon.

Topics with larger general discussion get the icon, like should we also includes routes...
