Sorry to awaken an old thread, especially this one, but I just had to share:

In their defense (and I don't do that often!), the driveway segments may have been edited indirectly by creating the roundabout. If I move a node to correct one segment, all attached segments get updated with me as the last editor even if I didn't do anything specific to them.

They were still wrong to create a roundabout in the first place though.

Yes you should check anything you touch, but since you can theoretically drive from coast to coast from any point, you have to stop somewhere!

Driveways look like they were part of a basemap import (created by admin). The roundabout was definitely created by IGN though.

Every now and then NJDOT gets a good idea. But there are plenty of bad ideas out there too ;)

Thanks. I only wish the IGN editors had eyes like you!

They are now, but they were not. Since this is 700 miles from where I now live, I didn't want to lock too many things and block a local editor.

These ign editors are really ticking me off. I worked for a loooong time on Monday to clean up this intersection outside of Woodbridge mall in NJ. I used to drive here often. It is a fairly complex intersection as you may be able to see:

https://www.waze.com/cartouche/?zoom=7&lon=-74.30865&lat=40.55709&layers=BFFTTTTFTTTFTTTTT

When I started it was a total mess of redundant segments and messed up turn restrictions. I played with a few approaches until I settled on what you see now. Complex, but the intersection is complex.

Anyway, I saw there was a new update request there (after I closed around 10 on Monday for that location). That is when I saw that ign_kateryna attacked within 24 hours of my changes.

- The two-way segments off of US-1 were made to be one way.
- Some geometry was changed.
- And EVERY SINGLE turn was enabled for EVERY node. For the intersection and all the jug handles. Again they must drive a tank and not care about concrete dividers and impossibly sharp turns.

These roads were edited by a level 3 editor (me) less than 24 hours prior and somehow they decided things were that incorrect????????????????

Frustrating to no end.

Sigh. More terrorist acts from yesterday. And just outside of my permissions so I can't fix it.

Arrrg. How is this for recent. This is just outside of Newark airport. In Newark/Elizabeth NJ. Notice the city and state. Notice who created it and who edited it. Notice the update time. :evil:

... and it looks like level 6 editor shai_waze also drives a tank and doesn't mind driving through concrete along a long stretch of NJ highway :roll:

And this was only a month ago.

EDIT: Add ign_olga to the list. Sigh. I guess I am not going to finish this stretch of road today.
