Re: road naming: townland boundaries for back roads

[edit (davidg666): split into its own thread]

I had a quick look there but I don't have editing permissions on Wazeopedia (at least for creating pages anyway).

Alright, great! Is it just a case of migrating the existing wiki over, or is there still work to be done with the actual content?

Like with everything else at Waze HQ, if migrating is going to take a long time, it might be faster just to rewrite those pages :lol:

Great! It may also be worth giving some more general information about typical things to watch out for (such as speed limit changes on particaularly bad corners).

Can do that! I was tempted to do a quick screen recording as well, but not necessary. It’s not too difficult really!

Good idea! I learned most of what I know about the specifics of editing in Ireland from yourself. It might be worth re-reading that huge email conversation we had last year for some information to include in wiki pages. If I remember correctly, you gave me a lot of information in that.

Largely similar. In my opinion, one thing to emphasise for UK editors editing in Ireland is the abbreviations. I always have to double check them since some things are abbreviated in the UK that aren’t in Ireland and vice versa. Also, is it incorrect to add a parking lot road loop for petrol stations? I have seen cases where these aren’t added in Ireland, but there is typically one for every petrol station in the UK.

True, I've maybe only seen it a couple of times doing Co. Monaghan, but I've seen random 50 zones where there is a "small" collection of houses. :D

Any updates on this? Did you get the opportunity to speak with HQ on Saturday? :)

Was anyone given permissions to create a new page to get started? Or is that something that has to go through an approval process first?

Any progress on this? :)

Great news.

Strange problem you are having. I too cannot create anything on *that* wiki.
I don't understand why Wazeopedia is a huge collection of Wiki's rather than one big wiki. I can sign in and edit/create pages on this wiki, however: https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/Commons/Ireland

Maybe HQ wants us to build up our Wiki there first before moving it to the "proper" wiki?

Edit 2: Maybe I'm being silly and everyone gets access to that commons wiki. Maybe we just have to wait for changes to take effect on the main Ireland wiki?

We could start talking about content/format/style/structure and whatever else though in the meantime though? Or was something drawn up by the admins a long time ago for the Wiki?

As of today, I still have no access to the ‘actual’ wiki. Did anyone else get access to it yet?
