2.10.6. Item: undo edits, submit complaint to moderator; delete item; item reference).

You can perform the following operations with items on Yandex Map Editor:

These operations work the same for all types of items.

2.10.6.1. Roll back edits

You can use the Undo edits button to return an item to the condition it was in before you started editing it (all the way back to the condition it was in when it was last approved by a moderator). If the item was created recently and still hasn't been approved by the moderator, then undoing edits will result in the item being deleted.

To undo edits:

  1. Click the item on the map.

  2. In the attribute panel that opens, click Additional . A menu opens:

  3. Select Undo edits in the menu that opens. A list entry will open Item history (see Section 2.10.8. Item: history). The Undo button will appear in the panel:

  4. Click Undo. The item will return to the form it was in before you undid the edit.

2.10.6.2. Deleting an object

Most items can only be deleted by Yandex Map Editor moderators.

In some situations though, users can delete items:

  1. Users can delete items that were created in error (as long as the item was not approved by a moderator).

    Just undo edits until the item dissapears.
  2. Users can delete extra intersections of linear items like roads and rivers (as long as these intersections join sections of items with identical attribute values). These intersections don't correspond to a real item. They may occur during the stages of drawing rivers, roads, etc.

    To delete this type of intersection:

    1. Select the intersection.

    2. In the attribute panel that opens, click More actions () and select Delete in the list that opens (or press Ctrl + Del):

    3. To confirm the operation, click Delete (if you don't want to confirm, click Cancel).

2.10.6.3. Complaint to a moderator and request deletion of the object

If an item was already approved by the moderator, then undoing edits will return the item to the condition it was in when it was approved. In this case, users cannot delete an item by themselves and should report it to the moderator. To delete an object, submit request to delete an object.

You can send reports to the moderator regarding a number of issues (not only to request that an item be deleted).

To send a complaint or request for deletion:

  1. Click the item on the map.

  2. In the attribution panel that opens, click More actions .

    In the menu that opens, select Complain (or Remove). A form opens where you can enter your report.

  3. In the field Describe your complaint (Describe the reason for deletion) enter the text of the complaint (reasons for removal).

    The text should include a clear description of the error in the object. That complaint was considered faster, add evidence of the presence of an error: a reference to the source of information, a photo, etc.

  4. To continue the operation, click Send (if you don't want to continue, click Cancel).

    If the operation is continued, the complaint will be sent to the moderator, and a corresponding comment is attached to the item (for comments, see Section 2.10.7. Item: Add comment).

    The moderator will receive your report and take the necessary steps. If the description of the complaint is not clear or the decision on the complaint is not obvious, the moderator may ask the user to send him additional information (proof of error): a link to the source of the information, a photo, and so on.

2.10.6.4. Share

To share a link to a map item:

  1. Click the item on the map.

  2. In the attribute panel that opens, click Additional . Select Share in the menu that opens.
