I've noticed that in the Inland Empire, these come and go for me. It's not a swarm of problems as with OP's screenshot, but zooming in/out seems to make them sporadically appear and disappear. They're gone for a while when they disappear, but they come back on their own when they feel like it.

They have one, but seemingly choose not to use it for all changes.

Thanks for th eupdate. Its too bad no one has invented any sort of testing platform, where Waze can try out scripts and other changes before rolling them out to the production servers. :?

Nothing back yet aside from a confirmation that the know it's a problem & have passed it to the developers...

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.

I have some automated URs where the green GPS tracks follow the proper left turn, but the purple track is our angled-not-curved-turns in the intersection.

I've come across several that have the following two characteristics:

A) Only show one green route
B) Green route DOES follow purple route

Example:

I had a few of these show up in Reno. I had already fixed a few back in December which this new batch wanted me to look at again.

Even though the Save is unavailable, making other legitimate changes seem to allow you to save all those changes as well.

Edit: Jemay already answered the save problem...
