By splitting Grant Rd. wouldn't that better-clarify which direction traffic is backed-up?

The yellow triangle is the GPS position as the Waze client receives it (it's being displayed by the Waze client). The position of the car on map is what the client uses to determine if you're "off route".
The way that parking lot is set up right now looks pretty good to me. If you look at the "Created By" & Updated By" fields, you will notice that the editors name have a number in parentheses next to it - this is the user's editing rank. You are both level 1 editors - meaning you are either both new or have not taken steps to be promoted as an editor (promotions are not automatic nor guaranteed). Have you tried reaching out to the user who is making these changes (they updated the gas station and created the panhandler) via PM here in the forum?DaveHolzmann wrote:Is there any way to tell if my work is being deleted by a prankster vs an experienced Wazer?

Or put another way, I want to contribute helpful edits, but am starting to get frustrated with doing and redoing the same thing, only to be deleted.)
Right now the basic guideline is to not map individual businesses. This explains the disappearance of the banks, grocery stores, etc. A more complete set of guidelines in on the way. As for the gas station in your permalink - there is a lot of back-end work going on with gas stations and right now we're only putting the brand in the name field & leaving the description blank. Please note that to get the address (City) properties to save, you have to create the landmark, save it, then edit address and save again (known bug).DaveHolzmann wrote:What are considered best-practices for determining which Landmarks are appropriate?

WHAT DID YOU DO?!?!?!shawndoc wrote:AndyPoms wrote:We usually don't lock parking lots down, but in this case I'm going to do it...
I need you to keep a VERY close eye on it (check it as often as you can) to see if it gets deleted again (by a level 5 editor). If it does, there may be evidence as to who did the deletion on the main roads out front (i.e. last modified will change if two segments are merged when a junction is deleted).
I'm really hoping for a PM/forum post from the user asking why it's locked and I'll refer them to this thread and to talk to you.
FYI, it now shows locked by me because I'm stupid.

The Waze application has a very strong snap-to-route.

Does it do the same if you are in navigation mode/on a route?
