Sorry if I am dense (well actually we all know that about me by now). But the new rules still seem ambiguous to me, as it is written in the format what USED to apply, then just updated after it slightly for the new criteria - thus not as clear as could be.

Why I ask is that I submitted a CORRECTION to a MOBILE camera site (as previously in the database, it was half way down a length of busy road, when in reality, it was several hundred yards away, now hidden off-road on a purpose built hard-stand now laid for the police camera van.

With today's new database, I now see that it has been moved to the location I stated, on the Google Embedded map on the submission page.

So I am not getting at all too excited, given that it might not even have BEEN ME to be the first to correct this (though as the ex-Councillor who fought against the Hard-stand at this site which only went ahead once I stood down, it might have been me first to submit it).

But even if it was, it is unclear whether something as minor as a correction to the location of a MOBILE site, even qualifies for any free subscription.

So I am just curious, that's all.

I thought it was clear but if you're unsure then perhaps it is not clear enough. Only new reports of mobiles qualify, corrections don't simply because they are so difficult to verify.

the current criteria is posted on the download page and here.

Quote:
Arrow The first person to accurately report a new fixed site.
Arrow The first person to accurately report a change to an existing fixed site i.e. change of type, correction of location, move etc.
Arrow The first person to accurately report a permanent removal of an existing fixed site.
Arrow The first person to report a speed correction or submission of speed data where none previously existed for a fixed site.
Arrow New reports of Mobile sites will also now qualify BUT because such sites are very difficult to verify, it should be noted that validation may take significantly longer than for other types of site.

it is far easier to write what DOES qualify than what doesn't... hece we don't have a list of what doesn't qualify.
