Are emergency services aware that asking people to use w3w they are asking them to "1.3. Please read these Terms carefully and make sure that you understand them before using any of the what3words Products.", that's over 18,000 words of terms to read in an emergency situation!

In this thread: 1. People who think a passive tag costs $0.50 2. People who think that you can just remove the tag and stick it to a bottle to get free refills. 3. People who like virtue signalling.

We really don't need to call any form of control or revenue protection "anti homeless".

I have been contacted by several people to say that LAS cannot accept OSGB. This is crazy. Propping up a business that lost millions to the detriment of the public.
Hi there - W3W is an additional system in place to help, not the only system call handlers use.

Indeed, what also puzzles me is they talk people through downloading the w3w app. They could just say go to the w3w web site, no app needed. Downloading the app is so people have the app. That is a marketing activity by emergency services, during an emergency!

It's now at the stage where @what3words have made reporting the location of incidents harder. Emergency services have bought into this system without any consideration that it is far from perfect.
Hey @StaffsPolice a friend called 999 and spoke with you today. You refused to accept a @OrdnanceSurvey grid reference, twice, and insisted on a what 3 words locator. Is this official policy now? What due diligence have you done on w3w, and why have you dropped o/s? Treat as FoI.

You've got a paper map? No, can't use it. Got a slow connection? No, need to use the app. Run out of data? No, install the app. Restrictions prevent you installing new apps? LOL.

And yes - you get told to install the app. They could totally remove the person from this loop, but instead our emergency services are being used to prop up a company that eats through millions of pounds of a year.

So @ChrisSheldrick - why is the way you are pitching your system making things worse instead of better? Admit your system has weaknesses and integrate it into emergency services. Don't make it the only option - it's actively making things worse.

Just a reminder of the sheer number of times that @what3words said something that wasn't true. Did they buy into this themselves? Did no one check?

What3Words have totally pulled the wool over everyone's eyes. "As long as you spell the words" - why not, you know, read out a number then? "better than nothing" - that's a low bar for emergency services... and the alternative isn't "nothing".
Yeh see what you mean, but i suppose as long as you spell the 3 words, it shouldnโ€™t be a problem? Its gota be better than nothing at all?!

The UI and driving system is totally different. No need to be concerned

I think I have wasted 5 minutes in the last hour with my tiny little brain struggling with a slightly changed UI.

Did you know you can change who is permitted to reply to a tweet? A little bit of me hopes it was this tweet that prompted the change.
