Information on Beta Testing This Week: We've just finished the fourth development week of version 4 of the New Play Map and we would love for you to get on the Map this week, enter in your data, and report any bugs, duplicates, or confusing things about it. We want to hear your ideas and suggestions. Use the "Help" link and the "Delete" links to report anything to us. Additionally, we've set up a telephone hotline at +1 617-800-9MAP so you can leave detailed voice messages. You can also just email us or contact us on Twitter @NewPlayMap.
