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.

I have seen single roads deleted, but I never saw anything like this. How can we protect the map from such actions?

It is a giant roundabout. Roundabouts eat everything in them when they are created and that was in this case the whole village. For a quick repair I deleted a part of the roundabout and connected the major highway; I left two segments of the roundabout untouched for shaming the editor... but I am not yet sure if this was deliberate or just very very clumsy.

As for backups and restores: this is not live yet, happened over the past days. I will ask support to restore the area later today, no idea if they can.

All it takes is typing "o" and drawing the mouse a bit, but at the lowest zoomlevels it should simply not be possible.

Sorry to revive an old thread - I just found mail in my spambasket explaining that Wazesupport will not roll back mapdata as it simply is too expensive. I guess it involves a lot of manual work (for the sysops).
