"This means the only things left to fix from this batch are:
* Search > Places
* Classifieds icons on the World Map
We look forward to bringing them back ASAP for your continued usage — pardon, no ETA yet, but testing and work continues, so count on regular updates from me."
After the first few weeks they where added to the map I stopped looking at them because the amounth of them is simply overwhelming and because of that not very usefull. The only use I can think of is to find out if there are classifieds in a certain region(s). But why you would want to know that beyond random curiosity i'm not sure.
The following questions i have are, does someone use them and for what reason? And would you be hurt if they never returned, to remove load from the database?
