Points reward is just a way to get users sticked to keep editing :-)
Would not a fully detailed map be an enough and awsome reward?
If new users or existing are improving with the scripts developed by the community, excellent, as long as in the long term map quality and coverage is improved.

Where do you download the current version? The project page has the only download listed as depreciated and has an upload date of October.

I didn't recheck the wiki. The last time, was a while ago, and the forum links were newer.

Ah... but I just wanted to be a normal non-searching, non-updating, why, why, why user :)

Truthfully the last time I checked, was also the point where the script was yanked for features waze didn't want done. So I didn't want to link to broken links.

Back in the box, comes from a higher up at Waze politely approaching the creators of the script to remove any functions that they believe are harmful.

Then if Waze is worried about continuing use of those functions, they rename them. Which unfortunately takes time away from working on bugs or new features.

You can never stop anybody from reverse engineering anything, but if you approach the people that are doing the heavy lifting, you won't find to many people willing to dig into backend of this kind of web interface to do stuff like this.

I think the basic issue at hand is that the creators of this tool need to look at what they are creating and look at the potential mistakes or misuses of it. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. Or at least look at the audience you are giving it to.

Ok...Can someone make this a simple "click and install" like the Highlights script? All this saving ,dragging etc. is not conducive to my limited computer skills :cry:

OK...finally got it into FF Greasemonkey :D Everything seems to work randomly ( New editor is extremely buggy) except allow all drives. I am level 4 and wondering if this is also a bug or just not working period?

The old editor was working fine...don't know why WAZE would release this newer version being as quirky as it is... :?:

Ahh...thanks Allen. I did have landmark layer enabled. When I go back on tomorrow I'll disable it and see what difference it makes.

enhket wrote:the only issue is people with no experience/common sense will screw up the map with this tool. You can fix that by adding a cone requirement (seeing that it is easy to get an area manager status, 4+ might work). Now, if you cant keep your ranking because there is someone who can do it better (and got more time), is not a reason to discontinue the development of this tool. That is part of the game, and is a part of the game "being able to learn" how to use it.


I have to agree with enhket....this is not an elite organization where only the CM's can be allowed to use this tool. All of us are volunteers donating our time to people who are gonna make millions off our input.

So guys, let's try and get along here or else it's going to be a constant back and forth battle between editors of different levels.....and this seems like a downhill road to me :?
