OK. Ontario in Canada (291 locations), Pennsylvania (238 locations), Colorado (179 locations) and Florida (207 locations) are done. British Columbia (126 locations) and Michigan (229 locations) are next. I apologize for Michigan being done out of sequence. I don't know how it got passed over.
States will be getting done a lot quicker now that I'm down to states with less than 200 total Pinside references. I'm averaging about 90 location responses a day (and about five to ten of every batch done need redoing since they matched the wrong address or location).
I'll be posting up a status report page pretty soon so anyone interested can see the progress of the Google verification process.
If anyone wants a particular state being verified ahead of the most-locations order, please let me know.
On the heels of this is the duplicate location match attempt. You enter a location, you may well see a page asking you if the location you're entering is one that already exists or is a known location within five miles of where the Pinside algorithm places the geo-marker. It may well be that the location you're entering is one listed under another name. I've redone a couple of dozen of these already.
Let me know if there's anything you guys can think of that I can add to ensure our location entry section is as accurate as it can possibly be. We'd be the only ones doing this particular kind of verification, I can tell you. Pinball Map, PinballRebel, Pinformer, FindAPinball, PLDB, SkillShot, PinballNYC, PinballJAX, Flipperliste.at (Austria) and the Colorado Pinball Directory don't use this technology yet.
More to follow!
