Unfortunally not the case. I am in the process of going through a major highway and ramp system again that was changed by a 0 because either I forgot to lock it, or my locks didn't stick. I don't see what changes were made to most of the segments, other than their name was on it, so I am not sure if this was a points script at this point or what it is exactly that is going on. But I am going through the entire highway and locking it all up. I first noticed it because a section of a road marked minor highway was demoted to primary road and happened to click on the highway since the level couldn't be changed and noticed someone edited the highway after me...

An even quicker way to kill off the map. Could be a malicious attack by a company. Who knows? More than likely to just be pure stupidity.
I still think that new Area Managers should be vetted by local Megawazers. This should not be happening with normal editors with the new level system though. I was under the impression that if roads are well driven that new editors couldn't do anything to them.

It is a fairly easy way of collecting a lot of points....

Oh, I didn't realize that since every roundabout that I've ever created only contained the roads that are to be a part of the roundabout.

Likewise ... I only found out about that deleted roads part by trying an extreme test and nuking an entire freeway cloverleaf intersection (without saving, of course :lol:).

I can understand a new editor making this mistake because I think the problem with roundabout creation is that you don't see the complete affects of the change until you actually hit save, right?

Might be easy to do by accident but you still have to hit "Save"

Clicking roundabout, fair enough, but dragging it out and then clicking Save is pretty bloody stupid.

Either way, these people should be reading the wiki. There is no excuse for bad editing now. All it takes is an hour or so reading through it. If there are any questions, then a reread of the Editing Conventions would give the answers. Unfortunately, we know that isn't the case. Shame really, as many of these problems could be resolved easily if people just read and used a bit of common sense.
