That sounds like a conflict of interest to me.

Greg, thanks for your comments.
I sent you a PM, if you could please look.
I'd appreciate hearing from "joe01romano" whom many believe are abusing his editing/locking privileges...

I'll be unlocking as I go but if you need something specific unlocked, e-mail me and I'll do it quickly.

Congrats, Webs 8-) ... and I'm still around to help out on your side of the border as needed also. :)

I''ll be unlocking it later, I am in the middle of answering over 50 emails of checking people's edits on Google map. If nth tonight for sure first thing tomorrow morning. Thanks for being virile. That's what happens when you burning the candle on both ends between wake and Google maps.


Using Google maps is out of bounds, ain't it not? Or am I misreading this?

I have to agree that joe01romano is absolutely abusing the lock feature and is making life miserable for Montreal-region Wazers.

I have written to him and he responds once in a while. The last time he wrote me back was Dec. 5 and he wrote:

He never unlocked what I was asking for.

Here is a small sample of the damage he is doing. Trust me, there is LOTS more.

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... 1,60622113 - Cars are allowed to turn left from Dandurand onto Dupuis. He locked as not allowed. The issue with the other road, Rue Robert, is that he left a stray comma in the name of the road.

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... s=60599682 - misspelled the name of the city, which is La Prairie.

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... s=60579519 - needs city name

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... 8,60636969 - should be Saint-André

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... 6,69811549 - should be Liège

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=4&lat ... 4,60649436 - Saint-Eugène

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=7&lat ... s=55889456 - this error report can't be fixed

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=2&lat ... TTTTTTTTFT - incorrect city names are locked, as has been that user report for a week

Also, he went into the map and re-added city names for Saint-Timothée and Melocheville, which have not existed since 2002 (they are now part of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield and Beauharnois, respectively).

I've written twice to customer support but they have done nothing about this. Now with Autoroute 30 opening, we can't attach highway ramps to local roads because they are locked.

Yes, yes it is out of bounds. I made that point on Nanorep, too.

Sounds like he is editing both Waze maps and Google Maps at the same time. So neither is getting his full attention.

Now if a copyright infringement claim comes up, it could look like data was copied between the two systems since the same person made the edits in both places.
