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.

...and then SNAP...they will be caught in our trap. :twisted:

I did some basic work on your other lot https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&lat ... TTTTTTTTFT to the protected segments if you want to do some final touch up on it.

FYI, it now shows locked by me because I'm stupid. :oops:

WHAT DID YOU DO?!?!?! :lol:

In all seriousness, as long as Kent keeps an eye on it & you respond to a possible PM by pointing the user to this thread and Kent, we're all good.

I think that's unlikely, as the last time they deleted my work the segments on the main roads were left separate. (I STRONGLY suspect it was another level 1 editor.)

Thanks!

At this intersection https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=8&lat ... s=70697762 you cannot just drive across to Oak Ln. The geometry just isn't quite there. You'd either have to drive the wrong way S on Grant before getting into the L turn lane, or go around the median and risk being hit by S-bound traffic on the other side, or drivers turning R out of Oak. ;)

Regarding other segments in this lot ... as I understand the Parking Lot Wiki, it seems like one helpful thing would be to add the lanes that run parallel to ECR in order to "capture" the parking lot traffic so it's not messing with traffic speeds on ECR. It would also be helpful to add the entrance/exit directly onto ECR that's used by both the gas station and the rest of the strip-mall's customers.

One final note: while the gas station is "Coast Gas", in the app it's listed as "Houtan Petroleum". I've never heard of "Houtan" and never found any other (current) source that uses that name. (And my spouse - who's lived in this area for decades - doesn't recall it EVER being called "Houtan".) Now, it's possible that there's a Houtan Petroleum corporation behind Coast Gas. But no Wazer will find a Houtan Petroleum anywhere near that corner.

Because this segment https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=9&lat ... s=70697758 is locked, the two adjoining segments could not be connected to it, nor have all the turns been allowed.

When that's fixed, (along with the edit mentioned above), I think this lot will be done... enough for now. (Some day, when we've got the rest of the city, county, state, etc. completed, and GPS's are accurate to within 2', we'll undoubtedly have time to get to mapping every parking space. :lol: )

If you're stupid, you're not the only one. Because the lock request was at the bottom of the page (and I didn't see that there was another page), I went there too ... then when I started to lock it, I saw that Shawn and Jason had both locked those segments, so I didn't bother saving my locks. I did go back in, though, and fixed some soft nodes in the parking lot -- so there are a few there with my name on them as well now. Perhaps when the guy sees locks by three different L5's, he'll start to get a clue about that lot. :lol:

EDIT: Maybe I can be helpful -- I fixed that intersection that Dave mentioned while I was typing the above. ;)

No more worries. I've edited my post on the bottom of pg 2 to note that it'd been locked. Hopefully no one else falls into that trap and feel stupid. ;)

I was just looking at things being nosy and saw an unnecessary geometry node and compulsively deleted it, so that lock shifted over to me.
