People: Map Problems
<> Update Requests
When discussing, let's try to be precise about what we're seeing and talking about so that there isn't confusion.
Recently, the line between system-generated and user-submitted have been blurred because Waze is testing out some new processes in identifying things like incorrect city name (Portola Valley for example) which are being fixed automatically, but if it isn't being fixed, then the script is posting Update Requests (normally reserved for end-user submissions from the app) with the notes starting with "Waze Automatic:"
Update Requests from real users will often include a purple and green line which is relevant only to that user/submitter. Map Problems will show purple/green lines which are aggregated from many drives.
Map Problems identification code runs regularly and analyzes somewhat old data.
The "Suggested route frequently ignored" appears to be the type of Map Problem which has appeared as an aging (orange already) Map Problem today. At least, that is what I'm seeing in my area. And they do, as noted in the earlier thread, disappear often when zooming.
