That's indeed concerning, sounds like a lot of clutter on the screen :/

I use imgur which is quick and easy :)

However, please please don't tick the "no name" boxes without very good reason!

I won't tick the boxes on any existing roads as this is the convention...but its really difficult to resist ticking the box on roads I create as it kind of goes against instinct :?

One issue is that because red roads are considered a big no-no by Waze, Ireland is covered in map errors, making it difficult to spot proper errors which would cause navigation issues, such as isolated segments. Also my feed is now full of segment without details errors:

I see all those red markers as a goal rather than a problem. There's something satisfying about marking them solved and not having to come back to them again later :)

It's also a good reminder if you're editing across a large area over a longer period of time. Just look for where red and green meet and you'll have found where you left off during your last editing session.

Maybe Yanis could point you in the right direction here, but I think there's a script that can scan an area and highlight issues like isolated segments, reverse connectivity, one segment loops, etc.
I use WME Colour Highlights - https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/3206- ... highlights

This would be similar to how it was done before Waze added these alerts. It was definitely overwhelming when they switched them on - but yeah, I never use my feed any more because of this.

I use UR-MP and scan my areas (in this case the whole ROI). You can apply filters and/or sort by clicking on the headers.

Especially for MPs, make sure you set a low limit as it might gulp all RAM available in a 1km radius :mrgreen:
