That usually means that it's basemap and has never been edited. The Updated By editors are the first cookie munchers that hit that road.

The newer system shows the date of what I guess is the basemap import, which is January ??, 2009. However, I haven't seen that newer system in place in WME yet.

Type: Missing road
Description: some one deleted the whole intersection


Type: General error
Description: map cut off intersection at Pearblossom Get and 138


Level 0 user? Nope, inexperience AM. He's also drawn in a TON of roads nearby, but almost none of them are actually connected to each other with junctions. On the other hand, at least they weren't red.

Now to see if he responds to my PMs.

Most of the town has been like this though.


Please watch that ramp from Morton to York. I've seen some very bad routing solutions due to ramps between streets. Ramps have a much higher priority than streets, so the router will go out of its way to get that ramp bonus in some cases. According to the guidelines, ramps are only to be used for major highways and freeways, never at-grade. As I recall, short-cuts / turn lanes / whatever you want to call that segment should have the same road type as the highest road it touches.

Oh don't worry. Deleting the un-necessary ramps in town was one of the first things I did. That was the intersection before I got to it, not after. ;)

Last night while editing I came across:
- Level 0 user who put a roundabout in the middle of a block on Venice Blvd, a major E-W street through the Los Angeles area
- Level 0 user turned a section of Melrose (like the show Melrose Place) into a parking lot, right at a major intersection

Also
- LA is turning part of the I10 HOV lanes into a toll road for all drivers. This happens in early 2013. One user jumped the gun and turned them into toll lanes already. I contacted him on the 23rd, and he fixed it on the 24th, but sadly the last update is through the 23rd, and its been confirmed Waze is trying to route those without toll avoidance on into the HOV lanes.


/Just me sharing, venting.

Damnit, I had Venice Blvd completely locked up once I got it working right.

I wouldn't mind you locking it back up again. I have no problem requesting unlocks when required (or bypassing them when impatient) .

I checked it and Only saw a few unlocked section to the east where it becomes a Primary street, which I locked because that's a bit of a complicated intersection. Did I see that you're now level (3)? If so, your locks should be effective.

So far this editor has been on a spree drawing in parking lots (leaving roads red, drawing in every lane). I've sent him a PM explaining what he was doing wrong last week, and the forum shows he read it. However he hasn't fixed or updated any of the new parking lots he drew in.

Then today I see he also tried his hand at primary streets.
