I know it's a possibility, but personally i don't like it very much. It's always a mess to delete recorded tracks :-) that's why i like this sentence asterix and i hope the users read it ;-)

...le Ferrovie non debbono essere editate !

Questo mi piace molto :-)


So should we post something like this in any country specific forum??

You are right: that' s the wiki adapted to "local" needs

I assume you are talking about http://world.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=13601

It appears that much of this is pretty universal and can apply in all countries.

I read through the English portion and I believe there are many more instructions that editors should also follow, so to say this contains "all instructions an editor needs" is an overstatement. I think we can ensure this gets included into the current instructions as appropriate. Many of the instructions on road naming is very country specific, so it is not universal. At some point we need to determine how we have people navigate between instructions in the Wiki based on country of origin. Maybe we have pages that are pretty universal be just that and then for country specific pages or sections we include a note at the top of the page making that statement with a link to a disambiguation page of sorts where you can choose from other pages that are more specific to certain countries. Hopefully those sections already exist in those languages.

If there is already a system being used and I did not notice, I am happy to hear what it is.

In hour small experience since November last in agreement with krankyd we created a specific part in section "Editing" of local forum with so called " WIKI EDITING INSTRUCTIONS" (both Italian and English).

It contains all instructions an editor needs to follow in order to edit in a proper way and in accordance with the "consistency" concept of a map as highlighted by Waze people.

As since last week we started the new AM management system called officially "CM mode", ANY editor has to follow these and only these rules.

Any adaptation to local situation has been previously discussed and agreed with Waze.

These instructions are as well in accordance with the User Guide issued by Waze.

As I said we started after Paris meetup , November last, and I have to admit that Italians editors are following it (we will always find out some one who want to make it different...)

The general problem is that very often editors do not access forum, but it's our goal to keep them aware .

Whatever you guys think is more appropriate. Should we consider moving some of the recent thread about the Wiki into that sub forum? Like this one:

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=20761

And the one we are on now as well:

viewtopic.php?f=12&t=20654

I sent a request to the person who seems to have taken over for the person who used to add new sub-forums. If I hear anything I'll update you.
