Probably a noob using paving mode. Either way as above, report them.

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

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

Just to prove I'm not crazy. I added a new road today, and it defaulted to Alabama.

For non-American's, Tustin, CA is roughly 3,000 km from Alabama.

Just had new roads I was drawing in default to Mexico for the country. This was in Northern Fresno, CA. A good 5 hour drive from Mexico.

Look for the possible other segments assigned to Mexico nearby. This will influence the country available in the drop-down. Mexico comes first alphabetically, and just like the state drop-down, the default is the first alphabetically.


I tried to, but it was in a heavily built up area, and neither the highlight script nor the new Extended Tools have a way to highlight based on country. :( I clicked around for several minutes, but couldn't find any nearby segments with Mexico as the country.

Hi Alan, sorry I don't remember exactly where it was. It was just north of Fresno, in the unincorporated but built-up area. I just thought it was funny to mention so didn't bother with bookmarking a permalink.

Update: I just scrolled all around Fresno with the highlight script on to show recent edits, and can't find that section anywhere. Next time I see something like that I'll bookmark it and let you know.

How are you finding the countries? Just clicking every segment until you find it? States are generally easier, since most of the tools highlight for state.

Oh heck no. Jemay actually I believe handled most of the auto-generated errors about it, but there's still plenty of smudge out there. Every now and then when I've got the time and inclination I'll spend an hour or so at it, but its pretty widespread in the countryside. Now that we have a version of Extended Tools for the new editor where the segment list works in Chrome, I'll probably start cleaning up more.

Thanks for finding that.

But there are other problems around there such as:
https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... s=61268451 has an alternate street which is not associated with any state.

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... s=62237741 has Alabama in the alt street


Thanks Alan, I don't suppose there's an easy way to find these for those of us that aren't programmers?

Oh thanks. I didn't realize it picked up on alt cities. How do I tell which one is out of state when it shows the same city several times?
