Remove false city names from UK WME database
Following the mass import of data for 3 ad campaigns (McDonald's, M&S, Aldi) by the Ads / Geo-ops teams the UK map is now littered with false or incorrect city names. These must be removed from the map immediately as they are NOT city names and should not exist.
The UK Champs have asked privately for this to be done but for some reason this request needs to be public.
This is NOT a change to UK mapping, this is simply following common sense that Counties should never be used as a city name and fake city names should not be made up. Removing these bad city names prevents the spread of false information on the UK map.
We have repeatedly asked for the Ads team to work with the UK community to reduce the poor / incorrect data that keeps getting dumped on the map.
The list includes, but not limited to;
Staff should provide a list of all cities created by the Ad-Ops-Maps team to the UK Community, it is highly unlikely any new city names will be correct. If your own Staff can't add data to the map correctly then they should not be touching the map at all!
You promote the community managed nature of Waze but time and again fail to respect the hard work and countless hours of the editors who contribute to the map.
As your community manager have also communicated to you via email, this request was sent here by mistake.
We will keep on supporting it with in the correct flow.
It's not just City names, they've added 1000's of new Street names too.
Including, but not limited to,
Street names including the house number,
Street names including the suburb,
Street names including the City,
Street names including the Postcode.
