|Lost the blue dots!||Jonathan Belsey||5/31/13 1:29 AM|
Hi - I seem to have lost the blue dots that mark photographs on street view. I find them really useful for scanning locations where there is no full street view coverage but they suddenly disappeared 2 days ago. I can turn on the Photos overlay, but this is more difficult to use and only contains a subset of the available photographs. Does anyone know how turn the dots back on again?

Thanks Jonathan, we've been hearing this from other users as well, I'll be sure to pass it along to the team.

It's usually a sign that they're about to add a new location, they turn them back on once it's been updated.

Maybe new street view in Russia, Ukraine and Austria ?

Is there any progress on this? I still can't view any pictures on street view.

I have submitted the 'lost blue dots' to report problems- nothing- are they gone forever? Doing 'photos' is a messy mass of confusion when tour the world. Maybe if we all begin to submit (daily if need be) our questioning of lost blue dots, they may realize they are (or have already ) dropped something that was good and they have disappointed many of they're loyal map travelers!! I want my blue dots back!!!!

I wish they would add an option to toggle on and off the blue dots. They're great for exploring areas not covered by SV or if you want to get a better look at a park or something, but they also make it harder to find some of the museum views or smaller areas covered by SV (especially in Russia where coverage is still spotty). That's why I don't mind them getting turned off about once a month or so, though they've been off for a couple of weeks now, and I'm starting to have some withdrawal lol. Maybe they would change the color of the dots or something to make it easier to distinguish the two.

Does "the team" have nothing to say in response? After three weeks?

I don't think they care!! I've lost my Blue Dots and Google really could care less - So I guess we're all in the same boat and going nowhere fast- They really do not care!!!
|Re: Lost the blue dots!||Jaka Flis||6/26/13 1:48 AM|
I got them back. Finally!
|Re: Lost the blue dots!||Lisa Dee||6/27/13 4:49 AM|
They're back now, but I'm a little disappointed that a new country wasn't added. Well, maybe next month.

...and now they've gone again.

Does anyone know how contact can be made directly to the folk @ Google who take care of this issue? Apparently, us commenting on this forum is a waste of our time as no one is listening.

According to a comment here from a Google employee who works on Panoramio, they should be back soon:
