When you look at your profile in the new editor, you will only see points you’ve edited with the new editor. We are hoping to combine the totals from the old and new editors in the near future, but until then, it helps if you use the same username or let us know if you have changed it. The recognition categories and “Patch Contest” should reflect your total edits regardless of which editor you used, but it might take us a little time to join the two accounts.

Due to the changes that the new vector web editor has brought about, we are strongly suggesting everyone  start as a standard editor. It will take some time before we are able to join the accounts of previous editors with their new accounts. Please take this time to learn about the new editor as a Standard Editor. We plan to reinstate your roles by the end of August. The new editor no longer uses tabs (separate editors) based on roles. You’ll find it is much easier to switch better between roles with the new editor. If your roles have not been updated by September 2016, please email nationalmapcorps@usgs.gov to let us know. It helps if you use the same username as you did in the previous editor or let us know if you change it.
