    A wrong sign for the task was displayed in the top right corner of the game, before I force refreshed the page with CTRL-F5. This happened in all the tasks, now its all fine.

    It looks for me, that this are all individual games.. you start with every game with 0 .. so there is no total points you can collect.. would be, my opinion, better, having one account and getting all points to one account and not for every game extra points.. what do you think ?

    Thanks for the suggestion, Thorsten! Definitely something to think about as we develop the game further.

    I have a question about a tricky case - for "No Left Turn in the United States" - some signs are combination no left turn and no U-turn in a single sign so they mean both.  Should those be approved or not?

    Hi Nina, thanks for writing about this! We consider the combination sign as a sign on its own - so the answer is that this sign should not be approved as a "No left turn" sign. I hope this helps for this and future cases - let us know if you ever have any other thoughts on this! /Madelen

    Good afternoon. I found a link to "Verifier tool" in user messages but did not find a normal transition, you can show where it is, for the future.

    There is a suggestion to add a place for a comment under the answer buttons, there are not unique cases and the user will be able to leave a comment on which it will be possible to isolate such pictures and double-check separately, there are signs on the rear door of trucks and you can always understand that he is on the car or on the trailer operator on the road next to another sign.

    or as an option buttons with ready answers:
    1. the picture is not a sign
    2. the picture is reversed
    3. In the picture, a sign with other data (for example at a reference speed of 110 km / h, 10 km / h) and leave the field for the correct value.

    I apologize for the translation, google translit.

    Hi georgisys,

    Thanks for your feedback! I'm not sure I understand what it is that you didn't find. Could you explain some more, please? I'm sure we'll manage with help of Google Translate. :)

    Good suggestions and we'll consider them for sure. Right now, we just collect yes/no data about the signs. If you're not sure, please skip the image. If you want to ask us about a specific example, please take a screenshot of it and email us at support@mapillary.com.

    Добрый день, я не мог найти ссылку на сайте, чтобы перейти к Verifier-tool, я случайно нашел ее в комментариях другого пользователя, теперь я уже нашел ее очень глубоко на вкладках.

    Hi there,

    I see what you mean now! Yes, so you can access verification tasks through the Tasker https://www.mapillary.com/app/task?menu=true, and we also share new tasks on our Twitter and Facebook channels every week so make sure to follow. :)

    Hi there,

    wonderful idea!

    I addes the tool as webapp to my android homescreen and did a lot of tasks, but the score keeps resetting to zero. Which is kind of demotivating

    what happened there?

    Whereas this tool seems promising, I didn't understand where this data is stored. I understand that manual votes serve as algorithm's training, but I am wondering if you store those manual data and if (hopefully!) that geolocated data could be added back to OSM.

    We need some definitions for the object we are verifying.  Mine was "bench" which I took to be a public place to sit down, like a park or sidewalk bench.  However, some of the pictures had chairs by the roadway, private benches by the sidewalk, full picnic tables, benches on someone's private lawn, etc.  If you mean publicly available places to sit, please say so somewhere in the details of how to verify those objects.  Nice game - the only thing I was missing was the ability to magnify the image which Windows 10's Win+ + keys let me do on my PC.

    I am truly amazed that this help page does NOT contain a link to the actual Verifier Tool! If you do a Google search for "mapillary verify" all you get is help pages like these, but nothing that leads to a page where you can actually verify.

    Things that need to be fixed here:

    1. Obviously, provide links from help pages to the actual tools. This does not only concern the Verifier Tool, I see it is a recurring problem in the Mapillary help pages. People do not only traverse from tool pages to the help pages, but with the help of Google there is also many people that start their path on the help pages. Just as a sanity check: is anybody aware there is not actually ANY link to the Mapillary front page from these help pages? No, clicking the Mapillary name in the header or footer leads to the main help page, not the Mapillary front page...
    2. Clearly distinguish between links that lead to other help pages, and links that actually lead to the named destination. For example, a link that is called "Mapillary Marketplace" should lead to the actual Mapillary Marketplace, not to a help page about the Mapillary Marketplace. This is a common accessibility rule, one that has also been promoted a lot by search engines like Google. At the moment, all a user can do is click the link and hope for the best, or do some fancy trick like long-press or hover to discover what a link is actually pointing to.
    3. Create a proper landing page for the Verifier Tool. After lots of searching, all I can come up with is cryptic links like https://www.mapillary.com/project/verification/MyE7pjiQSCJLu82fRcnh3O which will not do well for search engine optimization. Even traversing up the URL path only gives silly (https://www.mapillary.com/project/verification/) or cryptic (https://www.mapillary.com/project/) error pages. Ideally, individual project pages should also have "readable" URLs. Random ID codes in URLs should only be used if absolutely unavoidable, such as for individual Mapillary photos.

    Oh, and while I'm ranting anyway:

    • Please fix the sign in/sign up instructions on these help pages. Are you aware that the dialog boxes for the help pages actually say "Sign in to Mapillary" and "Sign up to Mapillary", while you get an error if you actually try to use your Mapillary sign-in? These pages do NOT use the same sign-in as the main Mapillary app, and that ought to be clearly stated.
