SHELL and TEXACO are all caps on their signs but Chevron is mixed case. I convert everything to mixed case in the editor so as not to be obnoxious. However, I haven't figures out a way to make the double x in Exxon in the editor.

Polite soft-spoken folk shun SHELL and CHEVRON, they go to Texaco and Mobil instead.

Hello, Can you please provide some more information about the error you encountered? I.E. Address of destination. The more detailed you are, the better chance we have at finding a solution. Thank you for reporting and Waze on!

Reporter on June 25, 2014
Hello. Um ok.


Apparently I caught them off guard...

Never got any more info.

I'm not convinced that waze correctly connects a response to a previously reported UR. I realize it is extremely hard - especially as volunteer editors - to verify this, but I have seen "proper" responses completely out of context for where the UR response is attached. I'm guessing if a user has submitted multiple URs, that the responses are not always attached to the correct one - or at least the one that user THINKS they are responding to.

The drivers often seem to assume that we see their entire route, driving instructions, and know who they are. They may 'report' over several URs and think that our questions are related to a different report.
As far as I can tell, the response we send IS linked to the proper report and IF they view the e-mail they get about it on a computer and open the link that is included, THEN they can respond on the correct 'thread'.
If they respond in their app, then there may be no correlation.
Again, I'm not suggesting that there isn't user-error, but with the number of responses I've seen that refer to URs (or situations) that are nowhere near where the UR/Response is being shown, that the blame is ALL on the users either.
In situations like this - it would be really convenient if we could see whether the OR has any other open reports. Having waze provide this doesn't require that we see the OR's id - just that they have multiple reports open. Hmmmm, sounds like an enhancement request. :D

Sounds like a good idea.... perhaps WAZE could assign a random unique 'reporter number' to each user, in addition to their userid and just show US the reporter number.
These could be 'scrambled' on a time basis so that only reports issued within a limited amount of time would be 'linked', say 30 days?

Waze never suggests U-turns. Instead it'll send you 2 miles down back roads and take 3 lefts. Plus the interstate segments are all 1-way. So: huh?

What you you mean 'turn not allowed' on 290 W?

Reporter on June 24, 2014
No U turn ..

sockslabs(3) on June 24, 2014
I don't understand. You're on 290W, a 3-lane interstate highway. Taking a U-turn is going to kill somebody. What do you mean?


He hasn't responded back -- I fear something terrible may have happened. ;)
