Adding / Editing Locations
on 9/22/2018 12:53:11 PM
Hi thanks for the site! Here's my suggestions to improve it:

Its hard to figure out how to submit and edit arcade locations, I had to search the forums and read through a number of threads to figure it out.

To submit a location you have to go to the Site Map http://aurcade.com/sitemap.aspx and click Submit Location. The site map should be linked on the top navigation bar, or on the homepage. The only reason I found the link, was because someone posted it in the forums.

To edit a location, it sounds like you have to contact an admin via the forum/facebook/email. I'd strongly suggest creating a Edit Location page, similar to the Submit A Location page. Then just add a link to this page on the Site Map.

Also FYI, there's an icon on the top right of the site with three bars. It looks like its supposed to be a link/dropdown menu - but it doesn't work.

Long term, it might be best to implement a robust google maps solution. This makes it easier to find/add/edit locations. This DDR/Music Arcade finder site is a great example:
Search: https://zenius-i-vanisher.com/v5.2/arcades.php
Add/Edit: https://zenius-i-vanisher.com/v5.2/arcade_help.php

I remember that "Submit Location" button.  Haven't seen that in years.
Yeah, it used to be front and center on the website and anybody could submit any location information.  You could add or edit locations with that feature.  That information was then sent to all administrators worldwide.  With the last site update in 2013, that button has likely been disabled for now.  
In the meantime, you can submit updates in the forums though this thread or you can msg me directly.  It may take me a few days to update the info though.  In the forums, there's a better chance another administrator can work on it.
There is supposedly another update in the works, however Galloping Ghost controls the site so they have the say as to when and what the update will be.

Smaller locations are easy to add - bigger ones with a couple hundred machines take forever to put in.  I have yet to finish one with a couple hundred machines.
