Curious about maintaners

 

I have been a member for over 3 months now and I am just curious why some POI file, though they have a designated maintainer, have multiple users uploading changes to the file? I thought just the designated maintaner did the uploads.

1 maintainer

There is usually a single maintainer but updates submitted to the maintainer can be credited to the person supplying the updated information. A General Maintainer can flag a user as submitting an update authorizing the compass badge. The maintainer updates the log file and shows that person's name.

POI File Upload

As a file maintainer, I can only upload POI files for which I am the designated maintainer. When I navigate to a POI page that is not mine, the Edit and Logbook tabs are not even visible.

I guess if someone sends me an update to one of my files I'll have to learn how to flag them for credit. Thanks, you solved my curiousity.

Every file manager will have a logbook on their files. When you have someone submit a change you just put it into the logbook and that person gets active credit for their contribution for the week.
