What's the known (not the advertised) half-life of the GPS tracks? :grin:

While quoting a WME UR, somebody wrote:Problem: blahblahblah
Reported on: someday

Display related

User drive (GPS trace)
Report as: Open Solved Not identified Close

Folks, would you mind stripping such superfluous lines? Sometimes there are more of them than those containing an useful information :roll:

When reporting anything on a scrolled map, the map immediately pans to the current location. This can be well observed on a larger screen and the user might get an idea, what's going on. Unfortunately, on smaller screens, the rapidly moving map is often perfectly covered by the already opened report dialog and various other navigation elements and remains unnoticed by the user.

A solution would be to postpone the dialog popup until the map is completely scrolled and rotated to the current position. But this would increase the GUI lagginess.

Many (most?) editors are regularly experiencing such URs being nearly immediately closed, regardless of the verbosity of the entered text (if they were able to type anything in at all). No matter Solved or not - without any touched segment in the vicinity. Mostly by editors, who've never ever posted in the forum.

We already do that and 98 times out of 100 they just ignore you or don't read the message to begin with :cry:

Sounds pretty familiar :-(

Funny :evil:

My translation in PT is something like "at the roundabout exit to the left" with the emphasis on the "exit". But yes sometimes people will get confused.

It _is_ worse, it _is_ "turn left" in our translation (and I suspect in many other as well). And wazers do complain, for years - desperately. And I can hardly think of an idiom, which would match both a numbered exit and a left/right drive through :-|

at the roundabout, take the exit to the left
at the roundabout, take the exit to the right
at the roundabout, take the exit straight
[...]
And if they still complain, maybe a full blown instruction set to comply with the roundabout rules below (right next to home) http://binged.it/ZxCz47

You can emphasize the "exit" as strong as you want, but I'd bet that "at the roundabout, take the exit to the left" from "Rua Garcia de Orta" to "Rua da Estação Agronómica Nacional" will never get a broader acceptance :roll: Even if the roundabout were 1/3 of the size.

IMHO from some 10-15-20 meter diameter upwards there should be only numbered exits. Howgh.

The location would possibly still (not)exist, but noone would be (un)aware of it. What's better/worse? :?

Beside this, Waze has always been observed to use some other type of time continuum. (At least the units like next, soon, later etc. were never translatable using the known SI constants.)
