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

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?

Actually, you do see the effects before saving -- the big orange circle shows up for the new roundabout, the orange roads that all junction at the edge of the circle ... and any segments that were completely inside the circle (as many must have been in this extreme example) show up as the cyan dashed lines that indicate deleted roads -- all before clicking the "Save" icon. The roads that were truncated at the circle's edge do still appear inside the circle in their normal colors between creation and saving ... but that's the only thing that might appear somewhat normal prior to the save. :(


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.

Yeah this happened to me in Ramsgate, not sure if it was deliberate or not, but it's bloody stupid either way! Name and shame them publicly :-P

Yeah I noticed a few twats messing Kent up! Seriously annoying.
I've seen your name on a few roads, I trust you've read and are following the wiki?
Oops, on reading that back it sounds like I'm aiming that at you. I'm not. :-)

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.

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