I have a "test map" I created some time ago. Is it possible to delete this map? I do not see a control in the interface which allows this to be done. Thanks for the information. --ceyockey

On of principles of ShareMap is to follow the similiar guideline as wikipedia so user will be able to mark map as "to be deleted", but will not delete map himself (because we treat map as collaboritve work). This will not apply to user private mapping spaces where he will be able to delete maps freely.

This button will be soon added - thanks for reporting bug

I suppose that in the mean time one could revise the map title to include "to be deleted", yes?

. . . However, I don't see a way to change the name of a map which is obvious.

The problem with maps in public space, that we suppose that they are "collaboritive" works, so any single contributor should not be able to remove or rename it - just suggest renaming, suggest removing.

Unfortunately these functions are not implemented yet, so if you want to remove or rename any map just use contact form and somebody from ShareMap admins will help you.

Thanks for explaining. I understand the reasoning, certainly ... I'm an admin on en.wikipedia. My gut feeling is that most maps will have single authors and only a small subset will become truly multi-author in the same way that most Wikipedia articles are. I need to sleep on that to see if there are any suggestions which emanate from the thought, but there may be place for some distinct business rules based on the editing paradigm in the space.
