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.

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.

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.

Seconded, there's a lot of experience and custom here which isn't really in the guides.

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).

Spazinbc wrote:Unfortunately, I have YET to see an APPROVED camera show up in the problematic area when driving as CLOSE or NOT THERE. Perhaps this is a coincidence? I dunno. 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.

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.

Sorry, but I don't think Spazinbc's info is 100% correct, no matter how much he believes it is. He tried talking to me about it before, and when the first-hand information I gave him was something he didn't agree with, he obviously didn't like it. He seems to think that ICBC employees couldn't possibly have bad information in their heads, and they all know what they're talking about 100% of the time, which is itself a pretty good joke. It's a government corporation with government employees, which I think should be 'nuff said.

In the third link he lists, for example, the intersection of 70th Ave and Oak Street is the one he is referring to. There used to be, and should still be, four cameras listed for that intersection. Someone's deleted three of them for some reason, probably Spazinbc, heh. I know there are four cameras there, because I added them myself via the client, all four seperately on different occasions, when I was driving in all four directions at those different times. Not only does Google's Street View show all four cameras, but there are warning signs from all four directions before you get to that intersection stating that there are red light cameras there, and if I went to that intersection right now I could point out all four cameras, just as you see in Street View.

Heading west: http://goo.gl/maps/8EGT8

Are those cameras not cameras? Are those signs indicating cameras not signs indicating cameras?

edit - If I'm looking at the wrong things, by all means, please correct me.

I agree in your links that there's a sign in each direction, and that may be enough to warrant the RLCs on the Waze map.

However, the only actual RLC I can see in the streetview imagery is this one: http://goo.gl/maps/JsbsI

Of course, I may be wrong because the streetview imagery is spotty around that intersection.

The devices on top of the traffic light standards are not RLCs. They're light sensors that make the lights turn green emergency vehicles approach. They read a pattern in the flashing lights and change the light cycle.

Think so? All the ones I've seen look like this.

edit - Also, if the camera you pointed out is the only style of camera that ICBC are using then he didn't even delete the correct cameras at that intersection, as that is watching in the southbound direction. *shrug*

edit - Sure looks like a camera to me. http://goo.gl/maps/kEBlI
