'''Point Location Details'''
=== Area Place size ===
{{/Area places will show up in the Waze mobile apps if they are large enough. Recent testing shows that area places which are at least 50 meters in one dimension and at least 10 meters in the other will show up. Tests are still being run to find out the minimum place size. Some area places, such as the Pentagon building in Arlington, Virginia, have a single recognizable structure useful as a visual reference for Wazers. These can be drawn to approximate the structure's footprint or outline, as long as this is large enough to show in the mobile application. Other area places, like University campuses and large shopping malls include more than one component, such as one or more buildings, open areas, roads, and parking. In this case, it is often most useful to Wazers to map to the edges of the property. This will usually show the area and its label in the mobile app even when zoomed out. [[Places/Gas Station|Gas Stations]] and Parking Lots should be mapped to the edges of the property (or at least to the drivable area); gas station or parking lot must be the first category in the category list. Note that this does not suppress traffic reports nor prevent Map Problems from being generated. A modest parking lot road drawn through the area, leading through the gas pump area, will be needed for that. See [[Places/Parking lot]] and [[Places/Gas Station]] for more detail on these Area Places.}}
=== Area Places overlap ===
=== More Info tab ===
In the More Info tab is additional helpful information for the Place. Here you will add phone number, website, additional services, and hours of operation:{{clear}}[[File:wme_place_moreinfo_tab.png|border|center|Place More Info]]
Phone numbers should be entered using the format: (###) ###-####
Note that there is no leading "1-", and there is a space after the ")"
 
Website URLs should not use URL prefixes like "http:\\" or "https:\\". Use the main or home page for the business. Do not use location specific pages (like those found from a site's store-finder), since those web pages can be easily changed by the host web site, and are hard to update for every location within Waze. {{clear}}

==== Services ====
====Can a user become blocked from adding new places? ====
Every user (trusted or not) can become blacklisted and banned from adding places once they have tried adding a certain amount of places or updates which have been rejected. We also track places that have been flagged and removed - if we see a pattern where a certain user created many of these, he they might be blacklisted.
====Who gets the points for the new places created after an approval?====
