Forums > Living in Kunming > thumbs up & down
I'm guessing the "thumbs down" feature was abused - hence it's removal - which makes sense. As Gokm is taking a more pro-active stance on bullying and abuse as opposed to lively and open discussions and debate - that could be an excellent evolution - but it doesn't really aid in Gokm cashflow generation.
Spamming a thumbs up button a la taboo faked ratings is rather pointless aside from satisfying those with exceptional egos.

It's in Chinese. As this is allegedly one of the official city bus guides (comes with a QR code scannable APP) - This is probably as good as it gets.
Personally - I still use apple maps (for iPhone users), which provides walking, driving, and transportation maps and directions.

Take your friend to the exit entry visa office on 120-1-9 tuodonglu, go straight upstairs to the visas for foreigners floor (can't remember 3F?).
As long as the visa hasn't expired and you have a valid address (hotel, hostel, etc) they can usually complete the process within 3-5 working days, sometimes faster. For an extra fee - they can sometimes expedite things.
The usual rules about passports apply - you should have blank pages and the visa will NOT be extended beyond the expiration date of your passport. PSB prefers you have at least SIX (6) months remaining...
If your friend is staying with you or some other non-commercial (aka hotel) address - then you'll FIRST need to go register at the local PSB - which should've been done within 24 hours of their temporary residence with you.
