WME does work for me correctly on the NA server, with e.g. the AndyPoms' mentioned permalinks. But it is still completely black on the INTL server.

This looks like, to me, a bug whereby a login is required but it is not asked for.

Sounds plausibly. I'll try to find and delete the responsible cookie.

Its removal caused a log in being required in WME, then it got re-created. WME remains black

The roundabout at Hospital de San Pedro, Logroño, Spain is just being edited by conductor77(0).

Well, after few minutes, conductor77 feels no need to give any (at least empty) street+city name to the segments - the roundabout remains red.

BTW, the roundabout remains still red - conductor77 is not a thorough editor :roll:

So, once again, someone started to tamper with a roundabout in France, Saint-Genis-Laval, on Avenue du Général de Gaulle and I've been thrown there from Slovakia with the well-known "The highlighted roundabout does not form a circle" error message. As the target place opened, the roundabout was away, just the connecting segments were visible. During next minutes the user jefffg(0) was modifying the adjacent streets' segments and finally replaced the roundabout with a simple set of four partially curved segments.

Devs, please please, take finally a look into the throwing issue...

I've already modified a few segments' red connectivity arrows to green, saved - and the junctions' neighboring segments do not carry any note about the changes being bade - the "Updated by" keeps the previous editor and time-stamp. Makes me worrying again - the connectivity changes are again not traceable down to a particular editor.

Waze promised to have fixed all connectivity setting bugs a couple of weeks ago, this is apparently something new in the recent editor version (679, from 23.5.2012).

Since the last update (world server) the connected segments that got changed turn orange when changing a junction.
This changes the edit date and editor of the segments.

Peter, take care, do not rely on it - it used to work like this for a couple of weeks, but since a few days ago, upon some arrows' changes, only the junction node turns orange - subsequently no adjacent segment gets visibly modified (date/by) after a save.

How do you know which of the two junctions connected to the segment have changed?

Sure you do not. If you encounter any sudden problems in routing through a node, you can be at least sure (according to the date), that 'something' did change and you can at least assume, which direction to look for... Otherwise you can just scratch your head - "Damn, it worked here yesterday!"

gettingthere wrote:How do you know that the junction and not the segment itself had been changed?

Sure you do not. Our way of thinking is currently limited to segments, because the nodes have no visible properties (except that no/some/all turns through are enabled). It's Waze's turn...

Aren't we already (mis)used to this habit, while editing Waze maps? ;)

Indeed, happens again and again. (Or green and violett paths, going e.g. in opposite directions, where the UR author remembers there was at least a couple of minutes' difference between the paths???)
And Support never ever responded to the notifications.

True. We've also been talking a lot about misdated URs in the past.
ATM the URs are such anonymized and delayed, that often not even their author remembers, whether all is correct there... :D

If you press Shift-A the red arrows occur. If you do a mouseover over an red arrow all roads connected with this junction and contain a red arrow at this junction will be "highlighted".

If you hit S, it spreads the arrows out so you can see the ones that are hiding.

Even with spread arrows, you still can not tell, which incoming road is not allowed to continue through a particular red arrow (because all possible connections to a particular outgoing road are blended to just one arrow). The feature would indeed make sense.
