GB: I don't understand the recommendation to request that moderators change a station's brand. The MSL's Station Name field is available to do this. What am I missing?

Normally one changes the brand and does not create a new station (which would leave an old one existing in the system). I don't understand the reason for recommending that, either. Any explanation for the logic of doing it that way would be appreciated. Maybe I can learn something.

You can update a station's current status by editing the Master Station List. You can request the moderators change the brand of a gas station (alternatively you can close a station and then add a new station replicating all the information except changing the brand).

What you're asking for is already available.

I agree - we have one by me, it get mistaken now and then. I am almost positive it will never open again.
