EDIT: with regard to user reported map issue, what would you say the 'real issues' to 'bogus issues' ratio is (i.e. signal to noise)?


My experience - which is less than most on here, but I think still valuable ;) - has been about 10:1. I can't say that the 10 are completely bogus, but they at least don't contain enough info to solve. I see a lot on interstates and assume that something is showing up on the client that the user doesn't like (eg: instruction to take wrong exit , but the exit falls beyond the UR tracking range, etc).


OK. That jives with my impression. I realize that map issues may get reported after the fact so I have been looking upstream.

It seems like having a "this map issue is bogus or too vague to use" reporting option would be useful so that contributors could be assigned reliability scores (while remaining anonymous).

TANGENT: What sort of reputation / feedback is in place for map issue reporters and map editors?

TANGENT2: I was carpooling on my morning commute. Waze notified me (us) of a major accident and we probably saved 30-40 minutes by switching to a mountain back road to get around it. TOUCHDOWN WAZE!!!!

"Not there"? What version of the client makes that possible? NOT the current iPhone-version.

That matrixsign reminds me of another one that was apparently hacked a while ago (reverting the message in the process)Image

Lol, did so 2 years ago. Stopped in the middle of the night and lit them with my carlights to take a picture, so it went probably unnoticed by the community then. For who doesn't know why this is jolly: a report on geese was in the original tutorial (and may very well still be).

You must have missed the sign saying "The end of the road is nigh!" then.
