New user with some questions

1) Does an Area Manager have to approve any changes that I make before they can go live? A map update has not occurred since I started making the changes.

2) I seem to have full access to add and delete roads. Should I have that access as a new user?

3) I also see that I can close Update Requests. I closed a few that I realized I had resolved by fixing the general map issues. Should I close them or should the AM be the only ones who resolve them?

Based on the number of open User Requests and map issues in my area, it doesn't look like there are any active AM's in my area, although there are a few listed.

Thanks,
Jim


1) Nope, after saving the changes, it's in the database. Waze staff merges de de changes to a new mapupdate. This process is not as frequent on this moment as it should be. But the delay is getting shorter more and more...I think in a couple of days we can expect the first 2012 map :-)

2) that's à good question. Yes you can in your driven area if the road isn't locked by another user with an higher rank. An area manager can do that always...

3) yes you can do, but send à message to the reporter of the request, with some information that you fixed the problem. After a mapupdate it comes available in the client,......


There can be more than one AM in an area, so you can ask to be one. Most important is to read the how to wiki and starting topics on the forum, so now what you are doing!

That's correct.

Hi. I've been using Waze for a couple weeks now and I have some questions about map editing. I have been making minor changes to the map in the area I live, such as road direction, adding missing street names and correcting turn restrictions.
