Report bad editors

Is there any way to report people abusing the editor to gain points?

I have a user in my area who seems to be going through, deleting intersections, and then improperly redoing them. This guy's stuff is easy to catch because he doesn't try to make anything match the actual streets; he just uses short straight segments of which he leaves at least one red (even weirder they all show up with as being in Alabama when this is in Pittsburgh. I noticed he redid one of mine like this today; I've sent him a PM but he's never posted on the forums so I doubt he'll respond.

Fill out a support form. Give them the user name and support can email him to email you. Worked for me, gave him some advise on how to edit and to read the wiki.

What's his rank? Sounds like he must be using the old editor if the state is coming up as Alabama.

He's listed as zero on the edits.

Alabama is still default on WME when editing multiple new segments at once. No idea if it will let you save as that though.

I've never seen any option other than the state I'm editing in, even when editing multiple segments.

I get Canada in Chicago area. In Wisconsin, I have seen Minnesota. I just assumed if there is one segment in the area named wrong, it defaults to it.

Okay...near borders, I've seen the option. But only of the two bordering states. I don't see why shawndoc should ever see an option for Alabama where he's editing (California).

The user contacted me this morning... I'll leave it at that for now.

As for state and country, in Erie, PA I've noticed new segments randomly defaulting to things near the border (New York, Ohio, and occasionally the country goes to Canada) but never something completely in a different area.

There are border issues in some spots where WME doesn't seem to know what state you're in. The Louisiana border extends east into MIssissippi almost 50 miles at a couple of points. I was drawing in a new subdivision in Gulfport, MS the other day and about half of the segments defaulted to Louisiana and half defaulted to MIssissippi, so I guess I was right on the line. They all would've allowed me to select either state, but if I tried to save with Louisiana on there, it gave an error that I was too far from the state. :?:
