Why does it take so long to have a report activated on Map Share, ie, I have had two speed limits changes pending for a long time and we have had two full map updates. I had one for a change to a roundabout and that as been done.

    Yes, speed limit reports currently seem to take much longer than other reports. Not sure when they will catch up again on these.

    Speed limit changes seem to ignored unless you have really good documentation -- in other words, photo evidence. But even then, if municipal data say otherwise it seems those data win.

    My last map update was a disaster in my area. Many speed limits which used to be 100% correct are now incorrect. No idea what happened but clearly they do update them. Just not correctly sometimes!

    Wouldn't it be a great idea to pin some FAQ article here, in this subforum with such questions?

    As far as speed limits are concerned:

    They lag with those reports about 2 years. Even when photo attached.

    PS Yes, the photo doesn't show 2-year delay but I cannot view reports older than 1 year, so there you have it. :)

    I tried to report a road that has been blocked off permanently and not just recently either by the look of it. Mapshare Reporter let me input all the required information and I added a photo from Google maps for good measure but all I received for this effort was a message saying my submission had failed (no clue as to why). What a total waste of space is Mapshare Reporter these days.
