If you want to further document it, drop the permalink and screen capture in this thread. Maybe the IGN editors will come in here and see them and learn from them.

Well here's my theory, screenshots are too much work for me, i have a big enough mess in my area. i will just fix the issues as i see them and be done with it. i need to get waze working in my area.

Now that I think about it, you're right. There should be an easier way. I can get a screenshot saved as a .jpg on my desktop in under 10 seconds, but to put it in the report requires an upload to imageshack, which is the most cumbersome interface I've ever seen (not that flickr or others are much better).

I'm not bashing imageshack...it serves a purpose and it's free, but it's not good when you're in a hurry, or frustrated, as we tend to be in this situation.

At least on the forum, you can attach an image to a message.

p.s. don't worry i will fix it and i am NOT giving you grief and saying you did ANYTHING AT ALL wrong.

I just haven't looked at it closely before. I'm sure that's way the base map was imported. But I agree, that should be a single node on Southern, I would eliminate the little triangle inside the District. Please feel free to make the correction.

I would like to live in the city of "zoom=7". I hear it's zoomalicious there

We are still using the ign error reporting form, right?

I once did an entire subdivision like that. I never would've noticed it except I accidentally pasted it into the street name and then it showed on the map.

Spent almost an hour on site mapping out the new intersection and 45 mins editing it. All was working great. Ign royaly screwed this one up.

Is there a way to prevent them from editing!!!

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lon ... s=69413220

Almost 20 URs now. Intersection is a double roundabout that is very tricky. Im soooo MAD right now!!!


Edit I should have Screen shot instead of permalink. What a mess they made.

Lock it. They can no longer override locks from those with higher ranks...
