A recent tweet by @wazemapping says to chime in here, so they're watching...

"WazeMapping: If you recently, unexpectedly lost Editable Area in the @Waze map editor, chime in over in this thread: http://t.co/FuahN6lW"

Same here. Lost editable region I was AM over and that I'd had a recent drive through.

EX: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... 7,69117159

I have AM rights over a large surrounding area that included this. More specifically, I think this larger zoom covered it --

I had the same thing happen today, made a 50 minute drive north and a 54 minute return trip on Sunday. Did some edits on Monday, then again this morning, went to do a few more on my lunch break and the drives still show in my history, but the editing rights don't exist anymore. :(

I have the same issue. On Monday 11/5, I had a drive in the Detroit, MI area and later that day was able to edit in those areas. Today, 11/6, I went back in to edit and had lost the privilege for those areas. I will also follow up.

I also notified (emailed) support.

As for the dropping off of editable regions, the support page provides:

How long before editable areas disappear?
Editable areas are usually available for the drives you did in the last 3 months.
After 3 months, you will need to drive over the roads again in order to get the permissions again.

I'm experiencing a similar issue. A drive from Sunday, November 4 showed up on Monday, November 5, and it expanded my editable area. Today, the drive is still there, but the editable area is back to where it was.

I submitted an email to support - I'll let you know what I hear from them.
