It seems that in my area someone crossed that line and it doesn't help anyone stuck with a lot of navigation errors.
Jean: That would be me you are talking about. And I AM NOT abusing the locking thing. AND I DON'T offer to answer in 24 hrs or 48 hrs or any time. I answer when I answer. If it's that serious then contact support or make a post and it will be fixed.
I don't lock many roads, intentionally. Since I am a level 5 when I do an edit I trump all except level 6, so if a level 2 locked it and I come along and make a correction, whether it is correct or not and I don't notice it has been locked, it stays locked to level 4 and down. There is one of those "locking people" who locks just about every road he edits, we'll go with just "Joe".
I now realize this and am fairly conscious about making sure only the appropriate roads are locked.
But it doesn't show what the previous editor was, so if I miss something that's wrong if I do an edit, it's me getting thrown under the bus. I will take it so bring it on.....lol!! I will fix any issue that I made or anyone else did, so just pm me and I will fix it, I may not pm you back though, so don't be offended.
Also I do one hell of a lot of editing and mistakes happen, trust me it will happen to you too. I once put 10 km worth of the 417 backwards, boy did I hear about that. I corrected it, said sorry and moved on.
I also believe any edit I made in the past, all the way down to level 1, is now locked at level 5. This kinda sucks because I made some errors along the learning path that I have realized since, unless they are already fixed.
One thing I don't like is whoever is reporting errors, some have been somewhat rude. They were directed at "level 5" and I am the only level 5 in the area. Please don't make it personal, I do this as a hobby and that makes it not fun. It doesn't matter how wrong or stupid the mistake was.
