Good idea. Some places (like the UK) have a dedicated subforum for unlock and update requests, but I think a single thread is enough (that's what they do in New Zealand, which is a similar size to us).
And to start with; turning from R132 to Stockhole Ln is not possible when driving northbound. Check this permalink http://j.mp/1uqCWMI
I've cleared the locks on this section of the R132, so you can go ahead and fix that UR.
I've left the rest of the locks in that area (around the airport) in place, because I think Arthur put them there while he's working on the area.
I have one suggestion for you Yanis: when you start a conversation on a UR to ask the reporter for more information, could you summarise the problem report for them, because all they see is a message on their phone and they might not remember what the problem was or where they reported it. Many reporters wouldn't be comfortable with the map editor.
I usually write something like this (it also makes clear to reporters that editors are volunteers, not Waze staff):
"Hi - this is a volunteer Waze map editor. Thanks for your report of the turn not allowed on the R132 near Stockhole Lane. Do you remember what turn was not allowed?"
...then, just before I close a UR, I write another message saying what I've done to fix the problem and mentioning that the change should take effect in the next few days.
Anyway, back to your original point: I'll start a new thread now for unlock and update requests. Thanks for the suggestion!
