+vhasler Posted April 20, 2012 Share Posted April 20, 2012 Since I have not found this topic (yet) on the forums current and past, I decided to raise it here to see if there is a consensus. The waymark is moving to a new location. I have had this occur in two different ways. 1) The item (for example, a statue Waymark WM9X6N) was moved to better protect it from damage by passing cars. In this case, I updated the waymark coordinates to the new location - and included refrence to a local newspaper article describing the effort. (Latter will be another waymark once I remember to stop by and take pictures of the statue in its new spot.) Rationale: The physical item has been moved, so keep and update the original waymark posting. 2) The organization/business (for example, a thrift store Waymarks WM6E4T) closed its downtown location to open a new place on the north side. In this case, my intention (which I see I have not yet completed) was to create a new waymark for the new store - providing the correct information relevent to the new operation. And archive the original posting with a comment referencing the new waymark. Rationale: The organization moved, thus needs a fresh new reference at the new location. However, I can be convinced otherwise on the second case in that it is the same organization, thus just need to update the current waymark post with the new coordinates, main photo, and information. Feedback? I can take either action I see for three waymarks which I have archived because they have moved, but have yet to create a new waymark at their new location. How about another nuance? The reason for the question is that an organization is moving and changing their name. The Habitat Resale Store in Kingsport obtained a much larger facility, thus moving. At the same time, they are adopting the standard ReStore name used for these thrift stores managed for Habitat for Humanity. Would a new waymark in the new location be more appropriate due to the name change? Consensus? Quote Link to comment
