We to inform the users about what to do when their calculated location is wrong. See bugs 1025141, 1025132, 1025132

Suggestion add a text bellow the calculated fields with a link pointing to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mozillians/Locations

Here's a pull request to fix that.

I'm not sure I like it, maybe you have more ideas?

I like this idea.

Where would this link be placed?
Inner monologue: "Just below the map might do. We could add it to that little text blurb that gives credits to the map data sources -- oh. I guess Mapbox added that while we were asleep last night."

That location looks good to me!
Matt and I talked about this yesterday. Mapbox's method is to send users to OSM's page for creating an account and then editing the map themselves. I think that raises the barrier a lot compared to linking them to the Notes page as I suggested in comment #2 which allows anonymous user submissions.
I see three options here:
 1. Comment #1 which links to wiki
 2. Comment #2 which links to OSM notes page
 3. A combination of (1) and (2)

:williamr, can you pick a solution and also update if needed the link text?

Resetting assigner to default until we figure the direction this will take.

For future reference we do have some code here https://github.com/mozilla/mozillians/pull/999

Let's do a combination of (1) and (2) from comment 8.

Suggested text:
[Improve this map] ([learn more])

[Improve this map] links to the anonymous note page linked in comment 2 that has the lat/lng.

[learn more] links to https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mozillians/Locations

I have updated the wiki page to explain the difference between the easy anonymous notes and there are also steps for the detailed notes that require an account.

Wray, here's an enhancement ready to work on.
