on INTL, red segments I have checked are not visible in client.

if devs will consider to force city/street for new segments, they should first get rid of current bug (sometimes mainly after changing zoom level to closer zoom it is unable to select segments - not displaying properties of selected segments & unable to submit city/street as no country is listed, which is somehow related to landmarks layer - at least errors are less often when this layer is off). it happened to me many times that after I drow new segment I was unable to set city/street due to no country in dropdown. so I saved segment without name, reloaded page (permalink) and edited properties then. if it wouldn't be possible to save unnamed segment I will loose whole segment I just created. sometimes I draw new roads long several kilometers with many "dots" to ensure proper geometry. it takes lot of effort to recreate such segments again.

There are many errors like this one...
https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-88.32 ... TTTTTTTTFT
...where it impossible to tell if the driver just preferred a different route or Waze's route was incorrect, because we can't see further down the street to see where the final destination was.

I see a lot of turns where Waze's recommendation may be technically the fastest, but it's just a route most people living in the area aren't going to take because it doesn't follow a main road and may lead to a bunch of turns to get there. So what do I do with that? If I mark it "not identified," the system is going to continue to generate the same error over and over. What if I mark it "solved?" Will these future deviations no longer generate errors. It's not clear to me what the guidance would be in this situation.

More confusing is this error...
https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-88.97 ... TTTTTTTTFT
Waze recommends a turn where this is no street on the map. So there are no turn restrictions to address. How do I deal with this?

I am unable to edit at all... I can go to add items, or edit, but once i am in there is no properties menu on the left. It does not allow save either. all i can do is hit "esc"

Editor Version Dec 19th Official Feedback Thread

Postby shirlig » Wed Dec 19, 2012 1:52 pm

Hi guys,

We released today a new version of the Editor:

What's new?


* New problem type: "suggested route frequently ignored": this new problem locates places where many users didn't follow Waze's instructions and therefore we assume that something's wrong there.
When selecting this problem - you'll notice a purple line representing Waze's suggested route and green lines representing the routes selected by the users + a number of users who selected this route.
* improved map problems and UR look
* UK and US now using imperial system in speed cams and archived routes
* Default city in new landmarks based on location
* Roundabout radius is limited to 100 meters.
* We deployed a new limit to massive editing due to misusage of extended tools by some abusers.
This new limit doesn't block you from performing the massive edit (based on your permissions of course) but only 150 edits per save will be granted with points and calculated for ranks.

clarifications:
How do we count edits for points and editing-ranks (those you see in the dashboard)?
we count the number of objects that have been edited within one "Save".
An object can be count only once in 24 hours.

That means that a user who used ET to edit a city containing 1000 segments, then selected again the same city -and had saved again - will be credited for 150 edits only.

What's an object?
segment
node
landmark
camera
update request
map problem
city (create new)
street (create new)

Please feel free to share your feedback here!

Thanks,

Shirli

Nothing has changed in the way that points are calculated. There's just a limit to the number of edits that will give points at one time. This shouldn't have any significant effect on the score of anyone who is editing properly.


Thanks, could you please explain I am getting confused. :o it will be helpful if you could give me some example in terms of edit.

Thanks...

For the 'Most ignore this route' UR...

Can you make it work the same way that 'Turn not allowed' and other URs do, where there is a user selectable checkbox for 'Ignored suggest route' and 'Route most users took' - if not that, at LEAST a color legend for it (in that gray menubar location) so that someone not familiar with this kind of UR will understand what they're looking at?

E.g., capture this essense into it. 'When selecting this problem - you'll notice a purple line representing Waze's suggested route and green lines representing the routes selected by the users + a number of users who selected this route.' Basically, what Webs101 said above.
