1.1.1. User profile

Every Yandex Map Editor cartographer has a User profile containing information about the work they've done on the project.

After you log in to the service, you will be able to access your profile and see the profiles of other Yandex Map Editor users.

To see your profile, click on your username and select My profile in the menu that appears.

The form that appears is your profile:

Your profile contains:

  • Your username

  • Your “Moderator” inscription (for users who are Yandex Map Editor moderators).

  • A Change profile button that opens a form where you can edit your profile (and post and edit a short bio):

  • Information about the work Yandex Map Editor users have done: the number of edits on both the old and new Yandex Map Editor (figures are rounded), how long a user has worked as a cartographer, and a special mention if the user drew on the new Yandex Map Editor on the first day of its existence:

    • (): made more than 50 (1000) edits on the old Yandex Map Editor.
    • The pictograph doesn't display the exact number of edits that the user made, but rather the range that the number of edits they made falls into: 0-50, 51-100, 101-500, 501-1000, etc. So if two users made 510 and 990 edits respectively, then their profiles will display the same pictograph: “Made more than 500 edits”.
    • — 2 years on Yandex Map Editor. Displays the user's “length of service” on Yandex Map Editor.
    • — Drew on the new Yandex Map Editor on the day it launched.
  • “Moderator's territory” listing (for users who are Yandex Map Editor moderators): displays the name of the territory (for example, a region or area) that the user moderates.

  • The number of edits made by the user on the old Yandex Map Editor and their rating among cartographers who contributed to the old service.

    If you click on a rating, you will see a list of cartographers who worked on Yandex Map Editor. The number of edits each user made and their rating can be found there.

    The list of authors (Top users) is in descending order by rating and you can display information for a given period (click the appropriate button: Full history / For the week / For the month / For the quarter).

    Additionally, you can click Go to top to view the top users or Find me and see information about yourself (marked as “you”).

  • Contact email: the email address where notifications about changes that relate to that user's interests will be sent. For example, updates to satellite photos of the territory that the user keeps track of or moderates (see Subscriptions) or Yandex.Maps updates that concern that user's edits.

    If you don't want to get these notifications, un-check the flag next to Get emails from Yandex Map Editor.

  • Information about why you were blocked: if you were blocked by the moderator. Click More to open your list of violations (see below).

If the moderator blocked you, then a corresponding entry will appear on your profile:
