After some time using the new editor, I've noticed a benign bug that seems to lock up functionality until the browser is reloaded. Sorry if this has already been reported, but I didn't see anything in a quick scan.

I usually use Chrome under Windows XP or W7. When I am editing, sometimes the editor functionality seems to become unresponsive. For instance, when I highlight a road, then the road details will not display in the left window area. Sometimes when they do display, when I try to edit a road, the country field will be blank and editable. Nothing is available to select. Same for other fields.

This can happen with a fresh editor screen after a save, but it usually can happen after a number of edits that still need to be saved. One can save the edits already made. At that point, I have to reload the browser to overcome the issue.

Thanks!

Known issue that's been around for a little while. Turn off the Landmarks layer while editing and that problem goes away.

Have the segment colours changed with the latest iteration of the editor (thinking about the recent change to the International editor, which has only just gone over to the new typeface etc. that the US editor has had for a while), because whilst doing some recent editing work on segments designated as "Major Highway", it looks as if the red used for this type of segment has darkened down a bit. It also looks as if the blue arrows used to denote one-way segments have become less clear in general (certainly look thinner, and possibly also a darker shade of blue too), so when combined with the apparently darker red segment background my colourblindness kicked in and made it damn near impossible to tell the difference between the one-way segments and the adjacent two-way ones...

I don't recall ever having this much difficulty in the past, and I haven't changed anything to do with the display setup on my PC, so it does seem as if it's the new editor that's to blame.

I remember noticing a difference in the red used in the NA Cartouche and the NA WME. From the little that I've seen of the Intl WME, the font used to look the same as our font looked in Cartouche, and it's possible that your Major Highways had the Cartouche red that we no longer have here.

I've compared the current colours to some screengrabs of the older WME I found in the UK Editing wiki, and surprisingly not only are both the "Major Highway" red and "One-way Arrow" blue are identical, but the size/stroke width of the arrows is the same too...

Discovered a useful trick though - reducing the contrast between the segment colours and the background colour by simply switching on the aerial images layer significantly improves the perceived contrast between the red and blue segment colourings. Manually setting the background colour attribute of the WazeMap element in WME to black makes the segments really stand out nicely too - I might have to add that as an option to one of my scripts :idea:

That's how my mustache looks now. Before it was just squares, now it is squares plus some giant letters!

* 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)


Can somebody please explain me the calculations how the points,edits,bonus candies will be calculated as per the new rule.
thanks in advance!!

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.
