We have more than a handful of times offered the same advice in the forums, and it's in the wiki. I'm surprised that people ask, "I can't figure out how to draw a road" or "I can't figure out how to delete this road which doesn't really exist."

Who says we don't have the ability to revert? ;)

From twitter:

Waze Mapping Support ‏@WazeMapping

How do you delete a road in the @waze map editor? Click on it, then click the Trash Can. Or hit the Delete key. It really is like that easy.

I was just thinking that finding the answer in the forums or wiki takes some effort to care, whereas twittering it to the world invites vandalism.

Then again, I've just been spending time fighting vandals in Wikipedia, so I might be a bit paranoid.

I'd be happy if we can see what has *been* deleted. :D

I'm also of the opinion that if someone can't figure out how to delete a road, do we really want them to be deleting roads?
