    I’ve run 70% of all Vancouver streets.

    Look like you still have some of Marpole/South Granville & Hastings/Sunrise to get.

    It gets harder the higher you get, at least that is what I'm finding. I have go further and further to hit new nodes.

    Yup, true, and % calculations kinda bug me. It should be based on nodes and not streets. In James’ model a one block street is equal to east 41st Ave. The % complete is grossly inaccurate. Based on my map visually I would easily be over 80%.

    I agree.On one run, I ran the length of King Edward and it count the same as a one block street. On some runs, ive knocked off a bunch of short streets and I've gotten credit for running as high as 2% of the city, which makes no sense. I like you idea of % of nodes instead.

    I asked James, he grudgingly acknowledged it was better and did nothing. He isn’t all that open to feedback or help, which I have offered.

    Don’t even get me started on where nodes are placed 😏

    It is unfortunate that he won't accept help. Yeah there are a few nonsensical nodes. I've reported a few, but they still remain. One I reported is a gated street that nobody has run. There is nearby one that is similar that I was able to run as the gate was open. The Skytrain and TCH 'streets' make no sense and are impossible to complete.

    I offered to help him with a bit of up improvement. Nada.

    He has some in the water in many places.
