Station Deletion

We pushed out a new version of GasBag a couple of weeks ago now, which adds a much needed feature: the ability to delete stations. The main reason for this is that despite sinking huge amounts of time into finding ways to keep our database clean, at the end of the day our systems just aren't as good as trusting you guys to tell us when a station is bad. This new feature was added by one of our interns, Takeshi Ohishi, and was an awesome piece of work from him, despite a difficult spec and demanding coding standards (read: I'm a nazi). Thanks Takeshi!

Here's how it works: when you find a station that shouldn't be there (it's closed, or it's a duplicate, etc), tap on it to go through to the station details screen and then tap the "Delete this station" button, confirm the action and it will be instantly obliterated.

We've now disabled our other mechanisms for identifying duplicate stations, and over the next few weeks we'll be undoing all the work that system did, because frankly it wasn't very good at what it did. So when you see new stations popping up that shouldn't be there, we'd love it if you took the time to delete the bad record (in general we prefer to keep stations with more precise addresses: eg a street number instead of an intersection, but don't stress too much about this).

One last comment: we have chosen not to make a new release of GasBag Pro with this change in it. This is because we had to make a lot of changes to our code to get it to build with the latest versions of XCode. Not wanting to break things for our paying users is pretty important to us, so we're delaying adding this feature to Pro until it's seen some more testing. If the current trends hold up, it will probably be rendered obsolete by the time we get around to rolling it into Pro.

Thanks to all our users for your support thus far, and thanks for helping us maintain the service for everyone.

Although I appreciate the Station Delete functionality, I think that its replacement of the These Prices Are Correct option is not ideal. Checking/updating prices is more likely to happen on a regular basis, whereas deleting a station is more the exception than the rule. Having to repeat the same prices over and over is getting a little old. Do you have any thoughts on how to include these additional pieces of functionality without removing existing functionality? Possibly a screen with secondary actions?

My area of Shepparton i've been looking after, updating fuel prices whenever i pass servos. But now i've loaded up GasBag and suddenly every Shepparton station is gone! Whats the go. I constantly send feedback messages and never get replies. I bought the Pro version because i want to support ya because i think it's a good app but if you can't get back to me, its pretty poor support.

I can't seem to add a station no matter how hard i bloody try! Does it have a limit on how many you can add a day?
