I messaged the moderators.  They said 

Who owns the map on google again?

Doesn’t RVA-is-the-Best own the map?  At least I thought it was him.  If we can call him up somehow, we might be able to see what he can do to help us out. Thanks for looking into this.  Doesn’t sound too difficult.

Awesome!  Thanks for working that.  I just think it will make it easier for us to access the development map if it's in the tab with all the other cities' maps.  Plus, it will provide an opportunity to show off everything going on in Richmond to everyone else. 

Finally, I want to thank you for putting everything together and for keeping everything on the map up-to-date.  I'm sure I speak for everyone else on this forum when I say, "you have my respect!"

Please keep us updated on the progress and I look forward to seeing the Richmond Development Map on the UP front page tab soon!

Thanks lol. But it wouldn't look nearly as up to date if I didn't open it up for editing to you guys. Sometimes yall have me beat to the punch when it comes to adding new projects. I'm glad at least we have a definitive map that people can rely on.

Ok lol so i forgot to do it after work on friday so I saw the msg and did it just now but am getting a 

Error

Sorry, cannot transfer ownership to [email protected] Ownership can only be transferred to another user in the same domain as the current owner.

 

 

So I guess i have to have a UP domain address like he does? Or maybe if he has gmail? I don't know. I gave him editing rights though, that was the extent it would allow me. Maybe someone can get in touch with him

If you scroll down to the very bottom of the page there is a "Contact Us" link.  That's what I used to get in contact with them and they responded very quickly.

The Richmond development map is up there now!

Sweet!  Thanks so much guys!  I love the fact that this is a very active forum and that we have some dedicated folks here.  Thanks for all you do!

Now, we just have to keep it updated and add as many photos/rendernings as we can.  I think that Richmond has a lot to showcase, so when you get a chance take some time to go in and make some updates.  Thanks again everyone!

What happened to the BRT line on the development map?  I thought it was there before.

Also, I need to get smart on how to update it.  Any instructions out there?  I don't want to mess anything up, but I do want to help keep it up-to-date.

I saw this headline on Richmindbizsense.com and immediately thought a developer was going to move forward to develop the City Center tower again...but alas, not the case.  Still, not bad news just different development news (ha ha):

Developers look to create ‘City Center’ in Monroe, Jackson Ward

I did the same.  Not particularly thrilled about an out-of-town developer trying to rebrand the area to something already referenced elsewhere, plus that stretch has already been rebranded from Monroe/Jackson Ward to Arts District.

So, completely off topic, hence it's in this thread.

I was watching a documentary on Netflix called "American Experience: The Race Underground". It has a great part about the Richmond Trolley System! Oh how I wish the Richmond forefathers had the sight to keep our trolley system!

Yeah, someone posted this on reddit and since you saw it liked it, I need to see it too.  It's still a shame that we were on the cutting edge at one time...now, not so much.

Just asking again if there are any instructions on how to update this map.  Do I need some sort of special permissions granted to do it?  I just don't see any way of updating it (to me, it appears locked).  Perhaps only the author can updated it.  If that is the case, I might be able to submit a list of items to add.  Just let me know.

Also, I see where the BRT and the Bike Share are additional categories, but why don't they turn on automatically when you bring up the map?  Instead, I have to go in and click on those categories to turn them on every time.  Wonder if this is the case for everyone else who looks at our map?

It shouldn't be. The access permissions allow anyone with the link to edit. Try my link, the one in the signature

I got in using your link (had to sign into Google), but there is no "sign-in" button for me on the map when I click the link on the UP Development Map page.  If I update the map using your link, will it automatically load my changes onto the map on the UP Development Map page?

In a way, I think it is good that not everyone can go in and change things at random on the UP Development Map page, but I think that those on this board who request permissions (those we trust) should be able to make changes.  Just not sure how to go about doing that.

One more thing...even using your link, I still had to click the category for BRT and the bike share for those icons to populate the map.  I think all the categories should come up automatically.  Is there a way to tweak that for all the categories to come up?

I changed the default view (hopefully for all).  See if the BRT and Bike Share populates by default now.

The default view with the BRT and the bike share worked this time!  Awesome!  Thanks for fixing that!
