I’ve been loving the more frequent city updates. It’s super nice to change a driveway or something to private in OSM and have it be reflected 1-2 weeks later, at most.
However, for my cities, I find there’s a lot of streets that get updated without really changing anything. Maybe some metadata on the street was changed in OSM, maybe the node positions were tweaked slightly, I’m not sure. But most of the time, when a street is updated, I still have either 0% or 100% on that street. This makes the emails that go along with the updates a little bit unhelpful, since there’s often 40+ streets that get updated with maybe 1-2 “real” changes that impact completion.
Right now, each email update has:
- x Created Streets
- x Deleted Streets
- x Updated Streets
I think it would be awesome to have a couple additional stats for the email updates:
- Previous completion percentage: 40.51%
- Current completion percentage: 40.67%
- Streets that you previously completed that are now incomplete:
- Streets that were previously partially completed that are now complete:
This way you can easily see that if your completion percentage stayed the same, and the last two lists are empty, nothing “significant” changed for your current progress (i.e. no need to go to the LifeMap and re-scan previously completed areas), even if there were tons of updated streets from the list above.
Maybe the last two lists are difficult, and if so, maybe we could just add the before/after percentages?
Thanks so much @JamesChevalier!
