Sorry for stupid questions, but were is this link to email support? I can't see anything like that (see attachment)

Instructions are also in the FAQ.


This is another waze's example of user unfriendliness :roll: You need to read the instruction how to submit a problem, omg. And you have to guess that your report of the bad editor is "support ticket" :)

This seems to be a favorite pastime among new editors--even without Cartouche's all-too-easy "split road" function. Thankfully, my learning curve took place in my hometown, when I was probably the first/only Wazer using the roads, so I got to see first-hand the pros and cons without inconveniencing anyone but myself.

If you post a Permalink to an example of this splitting, maybe a ranking editor can step in, and (if necessary) fix the damage and lock the road.

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

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

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).

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. :?:

It may have been removed already, but all it takes is one segment to make it to the tiles, and it'll continue to be an option on nearby segments. It has to be removed and stay that way across the whole area for a full cycle before it won't be an option.

Having done quite a bit of smudge hunting recently, I've found more oddball states and countries in California (specifically within 50 miles of L.A.) than anywhere else I've looked.

(For some reason, Gemany pops up in Louisiana once in a while also.)

Have you cleared out Portola Valley yet? I specifically ignored that one since it's such a huge project and I don't have much time to dedicate to it.

I tried that, but didn't really find it useful for smudge hunting outside of urban areas. It's come in handy finding a few oddball city names though.

So real name and Alt name are exactly the same (Except maybe the state field). Seems like a waste of database entries.

Kinda wish there was a script that automatically deleted alt names if the the street and city match the regular name.


How are you determining what state the alt name is assigned to?

In my smudge hunting, if I see a duplicate name in the alt field, I delete it.
