If you'd like to know what happens now, check out the page on 'What Happens after your Entry has been Recommended?' at EditedGuide-Process. We hope this explains everything.

Thanks for contributing to the Edited Guide!

One teeny question from a nonmathematician: if I live in a remote area, with no streets etc, say the middle of a rainforest, how do I (presuming I've got a phone and a signal) search for my address if it's just a mud but in the middle of nowhere? Can you just click on a square?
