I'm going to forward a link to this thread to Shorty-CM. He's your Canada Champ and Country Manager. The first of your link is easily verifiable with Streetview...images from June, only one camera visible. Two of your 5 links only have one camera and one of them has cameras maintained by Shorty-CM himself. He'll be able to take care of this for you.

However, there is now one individual who seems to be like a chicken without a head approving every redlight camera. He is not very co-operative and "sees" things that others do not. If I can have a listing of the area manager, I would appreciate it or a way to contact the area manager, please let me know. This is very frustrating.

You still need to send us the permalink to the area on the update map so we can look at it and identify the user(s) in question.

Please see the Cameras page in the Waze Wiki for more information on the. Basically once a camera is approved it is locked to that user's level - only editors of that level or above can edit/remove it. If enough users click "Not There" in the app, the camera will be unapproved (this too is based on rank-and covered in the wiki).

You can also PM the person who approved the camera(s) or if you post a permalink in the proper forum Country Managers can remove the cameras (they will probably ask for some official info-government website or similar-that the camera isn't there before they just remove them).

As a new editor, I'd actually appreciate a PM (with a permalink) if something I edited needs to be corrected. That way I can see what I did wrong.

I copy and pasted the info here:

We're looking for you to paste a permalink to the location in the editor, not to paste the contents of the wiki on the definition of permalink.

First off, there is no such thing as an approved edit - someone edits something, and it's there. The only way to protect segments is to lock them - only editors of your edit rank or higher can edit them then.

If you want to talk with the user who last edited an area, the best option is to try to PM them here in the forums.

If you don't want to talk with the last editor, or don't get a response, you can post a Permalink here in the forums and senior editors (and others) can look at the area.

I'm also going to send you a PM.
