Come to Phoenix area, seems I'm the only competent editor here and there's plenty to do... Heck I spend half my time deleting the ever constant red every lane parking lot roads.

I think any major metro area is going to have it's fair share of "busy work". Lately I've been running into Level 3's that seem to think it's perfectly acceptible to use roundabouts for cul-de-sac's and to map every parking spot (not LANE, SPOT) in a huge lot. In all fairness they were probably a level 1 when those things were done, most of the area I'm working has been neglected for a while, heck the "To-Do" page hadn't been touched since 2010.

How do you make the rectangle out of permalink's ?

I was told you can get a larger area to manage if you submit permalinks in a rectangle, but I'm not sure how to do this.

Delete unneeded junctions. Get rid of the extra geometry nodes in straight road segments.

Some areas look like they have a case of the blue measles with all the unneeded junctions.

Dunno what your rank/permissions level is, but if you're trying to earn editing points and don't mind busywork, some roads/junctions are badly aligned (assuming you trust the aerials, that is).

I also clean up junction errors, the reverse connectivity and the like, when I can. You have to be careful to check that you're not messing up turn restrictions when you do that, though.

Maybe it's a fool's errand, but for some of us reaching that 100K mark. and Level 4, is still a goal.

Note: Those correctable errors (reverse and U-turn connections, soft turns) are there on the white road images (streets) but the color highlights don't show. You see them when you click on the junction. So there can be tons of editing to do on neighborhood streets, which are usually accessible to low-level editors.

As someone who early on made common mistakes such as drawing in detailed parking lot roads. let me offer this excuse: It's not entirely obvious to a beginner that this is a problem. The little quick-start video you watch does say you can draw in "the main internal roads" in a parking lot. Yes, the Wiki explains this more clearly, but frankly, it takes a while to work your way through the Wiki.

I think Waze needs to offer better tutorials -- common editing mistakes to avoid, and such. The fact is, at some point it will be impossible to get enough editing opportunity to give you decent hands-on training. Some other means of training new editors will be essential.

Another editing task: Moving landmarks back from the adjacent roadways (unless the roads are part of the landmark).
