The place to get information and ask questions about everything to do with properly and successfully editing the Waze Map.
Use this forum for all general editing questions, and the sub-forums for specific types of Waze Map Editor features.
I've run into a "higher level" editor that disabled PM's. I ran into this because they have locked segments that were causing wazer's to submit problem reports.
So getting back to the original etiquette question... I usually send a PM requesting a response within 24 hours for level's 3 and lower and 48 hours for levels 4 and higher. (simply because I'm a 3 and can deal with the "lower" stuff.).
If I don't hear back in the time frame I either fix it myself, or I submit an unlock request in the forum, usually stating why I need it unlocked. Yes there is more "administrative overhead" (more work on my part to keep track), however, I find that a notepad doc on my desktop works for the little stuff just fine. For bigger issues I update my To-Do page in the wiki for my area (major issues).
Hope that helps! (IMHO, a simple button in the left side of the map editor that shows up when a segment has been edited by someone withing the last XX days or something. That button could be configured to allow you to type a short note, and in the background sends the user responsible a PM with your note, a permalink to the segment, etc.)

I hope they do add the communication functionality to the system. In the old map editor you could see who had submitted the report, so that made it much easier to handle reports and communications. I miss that
