I wonder, what is the accepted protocol for "reporting" a member's profile, when it contains defective information ...?
These come to my attention when I occasionally browse the listings, usually on behalf of a current Guest planning thier onward travel.
The usual defects are : erroneous location; incomprehensible telephone contact; some other typo or mis-transcription. In one sense, these don't matter - except they can make contacting the member more difficult than it need be, especially for Foreigners un-familiar with local systems etc.
My most recent case, was of a Australian member with an ( apparently) non-Australian phone number. A Guest can call that number, but the call might be expensive. Suffice to say, that's not a very common practice here in Australia, so I suspect a mis-transcription.
Options are :
1. report to WS Central Command
2. contact the member direct....
I have done both before, but :
re WS Command : the staff there may not be familiar with the local issue/s involved ...apart from being busy !
re member contact : many members seem to interpret any WS contact except by a potential Guest to be ....unwelcome, I guess.
I don't know if there is an answer here, but as always I'm interested in your experiences. In fact, I am always interested in anything WS members want to tell me, not that they have very much ...
