    Currently intending to arrive in New Street at 10:56, then a quick pit stop for fat and carbs at the Briar Rose. Should hopefully be in the Wellington before midday.

    I don't think I got around to weighting ratings by age. It is more about a new user signing up and rating one pub as a 1 or a 10, that would have almost no impact on the list.

    That was a cunning idea, sadly as we set it up with one user to post all the blogs it means they would've all gone. It was entirely possible to create a different user for each blog, in retrospect...

    I've changed settings now to just demand the shortest route it can find, that does mean it will still suggest some very inappropriate footpaths but shouldn't increase the distance by 20%

    It is a tricky one, it finds footpaths that Google doesn't and in many cases is really good for walking directions. Sometimes the footpaths are terrible and yes I've found the infrequent ferry issue...

    It appears to have been withdrawn from the Play Store by Google, not sure how easy it would be to get it back in.

    I only have history of name changes from 2014 and not absolutely every one. But I think the date probably covers both of those.

    We process a lot of name changes (almost 22,000 of them since 2014 - thank you dwarfs :notworthy: ). Totally accept the 'not capturing them very well' sentiment as they don't show up in the pub page...

    Actively marking them as suppressed from the front page doesn't seem like the right solution.

    Modifying the algorithm to prioritise newer photos might be the way to go.

    I can fairly easily pull out some raw numbers, not sure how useful they really are though as the true number of closures is sadly I would think far higher than just those we know about.
