Has anyone else been having issues with getting alternate names to stay after putting them in? I've been having to double-check saves and going back over the past couple days because the alternate name didn't save. It's been happening on single segment edits as well as multiple segment edits for me...

You know you have to hit Apply when entering an Alt name? I never forget to hit Apply with regular street and city names, but I tend to catch myself not doing it with the Alternate names. Different thought process I guess.


I have been hitting apply - that's what's weird. I really have the issues when fixing both the regular name and alt name at the same time. In order to get the alt name I want I have to change the regular name first, hit apply, then go back and edit the alt name, hit apply and it sticks. Most times at least...

New automated wrong route report is almost useless as I see it. It gives too short routes.. impossible to understand what happened there.
Without final destination its useless.

Another thing about newcomers:
almost every week someone new comes to edit maps, and most of them draw road segments without editing CITY/STREET part. That leaves all road segments RED and UNUSABLE, and they do not understand that. I am tired of PMing every new editor with explanation how to edit roads so they work. One user edited whole city with new roads and also changed existing... and all where red - without CITY/STREET edited.
Just make so newly drawn segments have either none/none there or are not allowed to be finished without editing the fields.

As I understood, red roads do not appear on map at all and are unusable.

Cannot edit house numbers in some segment whatever I do. Hope they will change the system or get other sources for house number data for INTL.
This is horrible..

Yep, "sharks" or "mustaches" everywhere under diacritics.

Ok. Quick clarification on the edit limits... For example, if I create a new 4-way intersection, that is approximately 3-4 edits, correct? Then if I set the turn allowance for all directions, is that one edit, or is it 12. I can see this adding up quickly if that is how they are calculated and you have to create or edit several intersections.
