    Default New StreetView Category Suggestion

    How about a category for POI-Points of Interest. I'm adding a photo I took of the Taj Mahal last week in Agra, India. POI would be a good collection point for various travel and sightseeing locations.

    But... but... but Streetview doesn't work in India... So actually your idea doesn't make sense...

    But try Google Earth... still pretty cool tool

    I wonder why we haven this category since we have found these images of the StreetView car.

    So please add a category StreetView-car.

    Can we by any chance change Cars, Ships/Boats/Etc and Other Transportation into like, "Ground Transportation," "Water Transportation," and "Air Transportation?"

    Done - now we just need to move a bunch of files into the new category.

    Done.

    Done. I was careful about renaming the proper ones to their new corresponding category, so no file moving should be necessary. Still, you might want to check them out to be sure.

    I moved most of the "famous homes", but you might want to check and make sure I didn't miss any.

    There was a bug in re-calculating the number of files in each category after one was moved, but it's been fixed now.

    Is a Minuteman II Intercontinental Ballistic Missile considered air transportation? I suggest maybe a "Military" category for stuff like this, or bomb targets or what not. Prolly not gonna get many for it, so don't worry about this too much yet (not until the "other category builds up, or more military stuff is found).

    Also suggest adding a category "Numbers" (or make it Art/Numbers) for things like clocks, gas prices, or whatnot..

    Also, is there any way to view StreetView files by uploader? I'm interested to see who has uploaded what..and I'd rather not have to go through and find everyone..

    The line between "Military" and "Transportation - Air" could get very blurry.

    Maybe so, thought I think we should keep "art" separate.

    Not yet, because frankly, it's rather pitiful. The script is ready, but I'd like to get the user base a bit wider first. Here's how it stands right now:

    146 - sladys
    47 - Mickey
    47 - Captain Hornblower
    43 - SpiderX22
    5 - stealthhawk2
    3 - Appletom
    2 - nekochan
    2 - Iverson3
    2 - Mac-E
    1 - baggins
    1 - prattmic

    It's about 98% moderators. I'm very thankful for your great support of it, but I'd like to see a wider variety of users before we unveil that. At this point, people can assume that those 300 files have come from a lot of different people.

    Could you add two new categories?

    Indor Arenas and Football/Soccer/Baseball Stadiums.

    Then you could change the name Sport venues to Other sport venues.

    So far it's a mess with all those sport issues in one category.

    How about:

    Sports - Indoor Arenas
    Sports - Stadiums
    Sports - Other

    Would that work?
