Area or Point ?
The table of Place categories and types, provides guidelines to help map editors decide between point and area places.

|Police & Fire Dept||4|
|Schools / Universities / Colleges||4|
|National & State Parks and Monuments||4|
|Government Buildings / Consulates||3|

- All Places that have complete information (to include, at a minimum, address/city, hours of operation, phone number) are to be locked at Level 2. This is to prevent loss of data due to automatic acceptance of Place Update submissions from Trusted Users, or Place Update Request approvals from other editors without careful examination.
- If you do not have a high enough enough rank to lock the place as indicated, please lock it as high as you can, and notify a higher rank AM, SM, CM, or Champ to lock it higher.

Place Name Harmonization
In an effort to keep common Places the same across the region, the Territories wiki page now has a list to reference. The list includes Names, Alt Names, Categories, and Websites of Chain companies across the region. If you don't find the business you're looking for, please use this form to submit the missing information.
We recommend editors to use the Place Harmonizer Script.
Please watch the following developer's instructional videos Basic example of a non-chain place, Basic example of a chain place, Basic example of duplicate finder and error checking, WMEPH Whitelisting Feature, Place Info Cloning Feature (Rank 3+) or visit the [Script] WME Place Harmonizer: Version 1.1, Mar 2016 in the Waze Forum for more details and updates.
