The efficiency of this thread runs @ something along the lines of 95% upwards - quite sure everything was looked at, fixed where it was needed, and some have maybe mistaken the thread as a place to point out actual technical issues, which it never was. All of that in a fairly decent response time for unpaid volunteers and faster than the regular place-related feedback is made. The efficiency of not giving feedback is zero. Unsure how that is better, apart from saving one's own time, but hey.

I'm only finding one instance of a bug report under your name regarding this, left four days ago, two days before your complaint here. If there was another, it must not have gotten through as it's not there, bugs don't "kill" themselves and I doubt someone just randomly closed the ticket on a whim. I, myself, am on a trip / vacation with limited internet access and cannot speak of others. Yes, I have wasted a tiny sliver of my vacation in a foreign country to fix this. I cannot be omnipresent all the time, and neither can any volunteer here. That's still far from the "lost and forgotten" phase complaints would be legitimate about.

Thank you for your feedback in any case. Much appreciated.

I have not been clear. Marko you are great. I would suspect well over 95% efficiency for the things you are fixing in this thread. I mean it is inefficient for me to send you all the broken links and incorrect information that I used to be able to correct myself for places and have avoided this thread due to this. I submitted regular feedback that 1906 should be retired twice, it likely would not go to you, and has to negative reflection on this thread. Thanks for retiring 1906. Keep up the good work Marko.

In case it hasn't been addressed yet in this thread:
- If you click on main button for "Places", you go to this link: https://www.ratebeer.com/places/browse/ Then if you navigate within it, I don't see any major problems.
- However, if, instead, you type in https://www.ratebeer.com/places/ (similar but remove the 'browse') it's a weirder version of the same thing. Use one of the pull-down menus and go to somewhere like Canada >> Ontario, and all your options for the location are gone. There is only a list of the Top Places is in this link, there is no list of Cities or Towns, no Reviews and not even a Map function.

To be clear, for Canada >> Ontario, there are two places on RB to go for a list of the Top Places:
- this one is very useful: https://www.ratebeer.com/places/canada/ontario/59/
- this one is worse than useless: https://www.ratebeer.com/places/states/59/

Haven't checked all the other 'states' but I'm sure you can extrapolate.

For actual technical issues please message Joe T - he should be contacted directly as, right now, he seems to be the only one debugging the site (and not working on the app or new features/reworks). I'll take a look back at the thread and start threads in the adequate board with the issues some of you posted, but please, unless it's a fix needed for actual place entries, contact him or start a thread. My fault for making the thread title slightly unclear.

Bill, took a look @Casper. Could you please elaborate why these two are separate?

and
https://www.ratebeer.com/p/frontier-brewing-company-and-taproom-casper/73582/



Yeah, my bad. I was told that there would be food served at Frontier so I entered it as a Brewpub. It turns out that they will have food trucks and not a kitchen so I entered it again as a Brewery. I forgot to submit an update to have the Brewpub entry deleted.

No problem, Casper's done then. :)
