December 25. Maybe they were getting their drink on. Lets hope.
First I learned how to draw lines on a map. Now I must learn the art of Feng-ShWaze.

Wow, if that happened a lot I'd think you'd consider banning them.

If they're still waiting for a response I'd be shocked.

Those that do reply are generally heavy users and get back within two days, most though after 2 days can't remember where they were when they submitted the report, and also can't remember why.

An adjacent 5-page thread discusses this notion in detail. Agreement centered around the idea of somehow forcing reporters to add a description to a "general error" map issue, probably by sending an automated request that the reporter can fill in when they stop. The UR would not appear until the reporter completes that step. Another idea was to eliminate the driver "first map issue" point bonus. But both of these have to be done by Waze.

Using the great Chrome extension URO+ combined with a personal wiki to hold my favorite boilerplate responses, I have found it goes pretty quick to send canned queries to all the general-error URs with no descriptive text. I'm accustomed now to the depressing fact that maybe 5% of them will respond, but since it's so little effort to send the queries using URO+ and boilerplate, I don't care so much anymore.

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

Problem: no hay error


Now this is Texas and the drought has caused there to be a shortage of hay, but I suspect that is not what the driver meant. I have asked for details and am looking forward to the response.

The word "error" is the same in English and Spanish; this would translate to "there is no error". Of course that is a strange problem to report...maybe the reporter couldn't find the "cancel" button (I assume there is one, haven't looked myself).
